I'm not sure how many people purposefully set out to do 1,000 of anything, but I'm now one of them. I'm honestly shocked that I've stuck with any hobby long enough to say I've done it 1,000 times - ha!
I went back and forth trying to come up with some grand idea for a commemorative blog post, but in the end, I decided to blog about something reflective of my life at this current time - my daughter.
I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate 1,000 "journal" entries than to write to the person who will make her entrance into this world very soon.
Your mommy is officially 32 and one-third weeks pregnant with you at this very moment. In just seven short weeks, we'll finally get to meet each other! Your nursery is nearly complete, thanks to your daddy and your Nana, (that's mommy's mom.) The three of us worked very hard and we have a beautiful room waiting on you, baby girl!
This is me wearing my swimsuit at the lake this weekend. Some people gave me some funny looks for wearing a two-piece with a big baby bump, but I don't give two licks; I am so proud of you and ready to show you off in any way I can!
This is a really neat 4D ultrasound picture that Dr. C captured for us last Thursday. Your two grandmas, Nana (my mom) and Hamaw (your daddy's mom), came to the appointment with me since daddy was in New York City, working hard for our family! They had such a great time getting to watch you on the big screen as you kicked and waved and stretched your long legs for everyone. You are already a showstopper, my darling girl!
You already weigh 3 lbs. and 10 oz. - right on track for your age. In fact, you're growing so fast, I've had to go shopping twice in the past month for some new clothes! We can already see some hair on your tiny head on the ultrasound and you share a lot of the same features as your daddy, like his full lips. This makes me very happy : )
You aren't letting me get a whole lot of sleep at night, but that's just fine with me. I LOVE those quiet late nights, just the two of us, sitting on the couch and blogging or reading. I can't get enough of your powerful kicks, and it makes me so happy that you're so active and healthy. Kick away, baby girl; kick away.
Seven weeks from today, Caroline. And then, my sweet, we begin our adventure together.
