Today is my due date, and I am still...here - as in, not at the hospital. But regardless of how excited and anxious we are to meet this little man, he'll come when he comes and he'll be worth the wait, I am sure.
However, it may be a good thing he's taking his time, so I can 'catch up' (what a loose term) on my blog.
This has been a weird spring for Iowa. It has been cold until May, which made our visits to sunny LV and Kansas even better, but strange nonetheless. It was sad to come home and realize it was still winter here. And then it rained, a lot. I didn't really realize how long it is to be indoors for an extended winter until you have an active toddler who thrives on sunshine.
It was great to see both of our parents! Las Vegas was, as always, full of some of our favorite people, great weather, and lots of love. We are always surprised at how quickly the time goes, but nice to know we'll be seeing them again soon when #2 decides to make an appearance.
We spent Easter in Kansas and it was so much fun to see Little Man hunt eggs. Once he got the hang of it he was all over it! It's always hard to leave but so nice to be so close!
Happily, J finished with one of his worst rotations of the program and we are SO glad. The getting up at 3:30am and getting home at 6-7 with going to bed at 8:00 six days a weeks was tough. It made the 'we never see him' phrase take on a whole new meaning. The people that actually work that department and those hours have my full appreciation and respect! So now that he is back on a normal schedule of 7ish-6ish sprinkled with a few days of call, we are feeling good about Daddy time. Especially since Little Man has been doing things like getting up before 6, meaning he gets to see Daddy sometimes in the morning and at night -
My wonderful parents got to come up for Mother's Day and listen to my community orchestra concert. I felt like a kid again - in a good way - having my parents come to my recital and it was so much fun to have them here.
So there you have it - our spring in a nutshell! Hopefully the next post will be announcing a perfect baby who has decided to sleep all night long within a week of being home from the hospital =) But if that is not the case, I am sure he will be wonderful.
