In just 2 1/2 weeks (June 5th), if I make it that long, we will be meeting our little boy face to face. I had a doctor's appt. this morning and there was not much change. I was dialated 1-2cm last week and 2cm today. They scheduled the induction for June 5th at 6am. WOW that's early. I will have to get up 4:30ish, not a time of day I like to see. The next two weeks are very busy. I am working everyday this week to finish up all of my end of the year tasks and meetings. I will still have two weeks of work left (I plan on working until June 4th, my last day with students), but I will be prepared if baby boy decides to come early. Chris's brother is getting married in two weeks. The next two weekends are filled with bachelor/bachelerette parties, rehearsals, and the wedding. Chris is the best man and Melia is the flower girl, so that will keep us busy.
The bags are packed and ready to go. All of the major house projects are done, and over the next few weeks I will spend time going through each room and doing some deep cleaning. I was able to finish the bedrooms, and upstairs bathrooms, this weekend. It feels great knowing that he could come at any time and we are prepared for him. I plan on enjoying the next couple weeks soaking up all the time I can with Chris, Melia, and Eva.
Baby boys are all around...Our best friends Ben and Rebekah are expecting, through adoption, a baby boy due in five weeks (but will most likely come early). We can't wait to meet him. Other friends, Dan and Laura, are expecting their second baby, also a boy just three days before my due date (3 weeks away). Out of state friends, Doug and Heidi, are also expecting in three weeks, with their first, a baby boy. Other friends, Mike and Crystal are expecting their second baby at the end of June, also a boy. It is so exciting to be surrounded by boys. We have had all girls in our family and friends circle for the past five years. I am thankful to add some blue to the mix. I am not usually very good about keeping my cell phone by me, but after I missed a call from Rebekah about baby boy last week, it's not leaving my hand for the next few weeks. I can't wait to meet these precious baby boys.
