This is for real ...

We have a car seat in our car!

The reality that very soon we are going to have a person to put into this car seat  is definitely sinking in.

I'm also really starting to understand why toward the end of pregnancy women start saying they are READY.  Until the past few days, I have not understood this phenemenon -- my thinking being, why would I opt for a crying, pooping baby that needs constant care when I can just have my body take care of him from the inside?

On Monday, I started having serious pain when trying to walk.  I thought a good snowshoe hike might work the kinks out.  Turns out that didn't help.  I now basically have to hobble around because my right leg feels like it is going to give out on me with every step.  This is incredibly humbling.  At times I wonder if I need a cane?  I'd gotten pretty accustomed to the ever increasing amount of discomfort that comes with pregnancy, but I did not ever expect that I would literally dread the simple act of walking.

After three days of this, I can now say that I will be ready whenever this guy wants to arrive.

BTW, I got your letter. I hope you got mine with my SD address. If not it should arrive soon.
Hope your weekend is wonderful! :)
