Well, the number of weeks left until my due date has officially entered the single digits. I have 9 weeks (and 5 days) left until Baby Girl is scheduled to arrive. By the time we move back into our house in Tucson, it'll be 6 weeks, 3 days. It's so crazy to think that I was counting the weeks when I was less than 6 weeks along, and now the (time)tables have turned.
My pre-baby project list is quite extensive, but one of my top résumé items is that "I thoroughly enjoy taking on and completing large tasks". I'm a project person. I love everything I'm working on, and can't wait to see further progress in each of them. (of course, pictures of projects and final products will be posted as they are taken on).
When I think of having a baby, I always just try to imagine what life will be like with a baby in the house, I never think about what the delivery will be like. It's not that I'm avoiding thinking of the delivery. To me, it's like getting married. Some girls focus solely on getting to wear a big fancy dress and having a party dedicated to them. Others focus on what marriage will be like, and whether or not they are prepared for an eternal committment. I loved planning my wedding (again - a project) but I wasn't focused on that day alone. The same thing applies here.
These are just some thoughts I had today.
