Getting oh-so close!

Greg and I went for our last doctor's appointment on Thursday morning, and Jake was--- of course--- still breech. So, we're still on track to have him via c-section on Tuesday morning. Greg is getting a little anxious, so we decided we'd go tour Labor and Delivery after the doctor's visit. We got to see where to go, what the room will look like and talk to a nurse about everything that will happen. I could see the relief on Greg's face! He felt better having a little more information. I can't blame him! I'll admit it...I liked it too!

We've got all of Jake's stuff ready to bring him home, so we're just watching the clock tick at this point. I feel so blessed to have had such a great pregnancy. Don't get me wrong- the swelling these last two months has been ridiculous, and I'm only sleeping about 3 hours per night...but in the grand scheme of things, it is so worth it. Its hard to believe we'll be parents in just a few short days. Greg and I have been truly blessed by God to have been given this miracle, and we can't wait to share him with the world!

In other news, Greg is finishing up flag football season. We watched him play quarterback last night, and he did great. I can't wait to be able to run around myself! :) He'll play in a softball tournament the second weekend in August, so that should be fun too. The team he plays on won this tournament last year. I told him Jake and I would make every effort to be there cheering him long as its not 95 degrees outside!

My mom made Jake this sweet little outfit to wear home from the hospital. I just LOVE IT!

The day of my last doctor's appointment -- T minus 4 days! You like that swollen face, don't you??? :) I'm standing in Jake's nursery. I love the paintings-- got them from Swan's in Marion.
