The Countdown begins

Well we are to that stage where we are just weeks away from Audrey's arrival. I can't believe in about 6 weeks we'll be holding her in our arms. It seems like it was just May and we found out we would be parents. Time sure does fly!

Like all other soon to be parents we have a list of things to get done before Audrey arrives as well as my family for Christmas. We sat down at our favorite local establishment, Mom's Kitchen, to make a list of things to get done today and before Dec 21 when all of the family arrives. Lists are nice, but sometimes they can also be overwhelming. This is especially true when you realize you only got one part of your list accomplished. We're going to blame Stinson's company Christmas party for the lack of completion today.

I know we'll get it all done eventually and if we don't who cares right?! My biggest to-do is plans for my long term sub. I haven't really started those yet and really need to. Hopefully that's what tomorrow is for! I know they'll get done, but the thought of them has been so overwhelming I don't know where to begin.

In addition to list making we've been attending classes to prepare us for Audrey's arrival. I am so glad we took them because I now feel somewhat prepared, or at least have an idea of what to expect. The closer it gets the more I can't wait to meet her. I want her to stay in until she's ready, but I still can't wait to hold her in my arms. I wonder what her relationship will be like with Stinson. I really feel like in the last few weeks God has been preparing my heart to be a mother. It will be here before I know it.

Time to go attempt to cross 1 or 2 more things off the list.


  1. I can't wait to meet her either!! Don't worry about getting everything done, it has a way of working out.

  2. It will be here before you know it! I wouldn't stress about the sub plans. It sounds like your sub is more than capable.
