Waiting for baby


Shopping in the city at 37 weeks.

I have 9 days until my due date. Single digits now.

It’s a very strange place to be in…just waiting for your whole life to change. I’m glad I stopped working so early. I still have a couple orders to fulfill here and there, but mostly I can relax and do holiday-related things. Or take a nap.

I realized that my holiday seasons are always insanely hectic because I am either prepping for craft shows or taking a big trip, or both. It’s nice to just chill and bake cookies.

Harper has been super clingy lately, but I can’t tell if it’s because she knows she’s about to lose a lot of my attention or because she is almost 3. She’s in a big “mommy do it” phase. But it’s usually about some mundane thing that seems more about control than anything else. I am no expert with this stuff. I’m just trying to love on her an extra lot. She completely exhausts me sometimes, but she is such an extraordinary little person. It’s so hard to imagine what her little brother will be like. I’m dying to know!

My sister arrives on Thursday. In a perfect world, the baby will come while she’s here. But we all know their timing isn’t perfect!
