Last Day as a Family of 2

I can't begin to describe what a strange feeling it is to know that today is our last day of it "just being us." Clark and I slept in this morning and really took advantage of what will be the last day we can lay in bed until 10:30 without any interruptions. Then we went to Waffle House for a late breakfast, ran some last minute errands, went to the grocery store, did laundry, and installed car seat bases into both of our cars. Now we are waiting for my Mom and Dad to come over to help us hang some pictures and a mirror in Rose's nursery so we can finally feel like it is ready for Rose. Those of you who know my Dad know that he loves to cook one pot wonders. Tonight he is bringing over his famous Tuscan Chicken. So yummy! It is chicken with all kinds of veggies...green beans, potatoes, and rutabagas to name a few. Clark is working on a great salad and french bread, and I picked up Baskin Robbins ice cream for dessert.

Anyway, back to today. I must have cried at least 8 times today. It started this morning while we were getting dressed for breakfast and continued on from there! At Waffle House, I asked Clark what he thought Rose was going to look like (although we have talked about it 100 times before) and the waterworks started again. I felt kinda silly crying in the Waffle House but I sure I am not the first pregnant lady to do that. Tears were shed during a conversation with Dana, then while driving by the hospital where I will give birth tomorrow, on the phone with a few friends, and again in the kitchen tonight. Don't get me wrong...I am NOT sad at all. Just very emotional! I've been waiting all of my life to have a baby of my own, and its hard to fathom that at 4:45 tomorrow morning, Clark and I will wake up to begin the day where we meet our daughter. I don't think we will sleep a wink tonight. If you are reading this tonight, please pray for a quick and easy delivery but more importantly, please pray for a healthy baby. We will post pictures of little Miss Rebecca Rose as soon as possible!

Oh I remember the feelings you are describing all too well! We weren't created to know when our babies are going to be born and it is just a STRANGE/WONDERFUL/SCARY/SURREAL knowledge to be able to manage!
I know you are going to do great tomorrow! I'll be praying and can't wait to see sweet Rose!!

There is nothing like that moment when you see your baby for the first time. I know she will be beautiful. I can't wait to hear that she has arrived!

Glad to hear from you and I have enjoyed looking at the pictures of that sweet baby girl. I laughed reading this post because I was the exact same way the day that we went to the hospital (I had to be there at 4pm so we had the day to sleep in, grab breakfast, run errands, etc). I also cried more than once!!
