If I'm being honest, some days it's an uneasy sort of calm- the kind of calm you want to rush because you know you're standing on the precipice of something great. Something really, really great.
Like the birth of your second sweet boy.
And other days, you try your hardest to remain in the moment, appreciating the calm, trying not to rush it for The Next Great Thing because you know you will never, ever get those days back. But it's so hard. So, so hard.
Especially when you know how great that something that will soon happen is going to be.
It's no secret that pregnancy is hard. The hormones, the weight gain, the mood swings, the morning sickness, the aches, the heartburn. But these last few days? These last few days full of nothing but waiting? And waiting? And more waiting?
They're the hardest.
I wanted to take a moment to pop in and say thank you. Thank you for following me along on this journey. Thank you for putting up with me when my snark and sass was lost and when my snark and sass got the best of me.
Thank you for praying for our sweet family and truly getting just as excited for Maclane's arrival as we are. It's a funny thing- knowing that hundreds of "strangers" are eagerly anticipating the birth of your son. But how could you not be? I share so much of my life and my family with all of you that I can understand your excitement. I've been there. I've felt the same and feel the same for so many of my "blog friends."
It goes without saying that I'll be a bit absent here over the next week or so- not only am I having a baby but there is so much wine to be had! Chances are I'll be updating much more on Twitter, Instagram (LvdMoreThnCrrts) and Facebook so make sure you're following me along there.
On Monday, you'll find a letter posting that we've written to Maclane. Just a heads up, you may want to grab your tissues. Don't forget to enter my Thirty-One Gifts giveaway here and shop my party event here.
Towards the end of next week, you'll be hearing from three incredible moms and new voices around these parts. Two of them are brand new Moms of Two. You won't want to miss them.
Happy Friday, Loyals. Have a great weekend!
