Thoughts on being 39 weeks pregnant

So, today marks one week from this little man's due date. Goodness, where has the time gone? I remember like it was yesterday how we were trying so hard to get pregnant, how we lost our first sweet baby, and the pure joy we felt when we found out the next month that we were pregnant again. 
My heart is so full of thankfulness to the Lord that He has watched over this baby and kept him safe and sound for the past 39 weeks. Words can't describe what a gift Lee and I have been given. 

I can't seem to wrap my head around the fact that in around a week there will be three of us. No matter how many kicks I have felt or how much we have seen my belly moving around crazily, I just can't actually believe that there is a BABY in ME! You'd think that after being nearly 10 months pregnant, this wouldn't be the case.. but it is! 

Parts of me feel a little emotional. Which, I'm sure, is to be expected! I've got crazy hormones going on over here ;) 
For one reason, I'm going to so miss having my little boy dancing around my belly every day. Just me and him. That's how its always been.. it will be hard to share him. It's like me and him have a secret little bond that no one knows about. But I take joy in the fact that I have savored every single minute of this pregnancy. I have really tried to make a conscious decision to just soak it up and enjoy... and I'm proud to say that I have. I know, that having him out here will be a bazillion times better.. but I sure will miss his sweet kicks!
The other reason that has made my emotions run a little wild, is that this chapter of just Lee and I is just about over. This has been the best year and a half of my life, without a doubt. Never have I enjoyed life so much than when I have been married to him. We have had so many big and small adventures in our short time of being married.. and I love every single one of them. I will always treasure our time of just us, but I know that even more beautiful things are right around the corner. 

So goodness gracious, we are on the brink of starting a brand new adventure together. One that will change our lives forever and make everything so much better then it already is.

 Our baby boy is coming
and my heart is fuller than ever before.
