For some reason I felt like I should sit down and write a blog this morning, but as I sit here ready to type, my mind is blank. I just finished trying to call Jeremy O for the first time since moving to BC a year ago. Does that make me a terrible friend? He wasn’t home so I thought I’d call my little bro Blair. He wasnt answering. I thought about giving Kori J, or Adam J a call, but they’d be at work, so I tried my parents thinking they might be home for lunch. No one home. So now I’m stuck talking to my computer.
This is a strange time in life. I am glad there are still two weeks till our due date and possibly two more weeks of life as I know it. At the same time, the anticipation is killing me and I can’t wait for our child to come. I wake up each morning wondering if this is going to be the day our lives will change forever. I continuously find myself trying to savour our last few child-free moments, which, to be honest, is almost hopeless at this point, as our child already goes everywhere with us causing Chelsey discomfort and sometimes pain. I had a thought the other day that it would be great if the baby came really late, because it’s a lot easier to care for right now than it will be after it’s out. I guess it was one of those fearful moments of realizing I have no idea how to care for a baby. Chelsey didnt agree about the baby coming late for some reason. Apparently it isnt as easy for her to care for the baby right now as it is for me, and luckily she isn’t concerned about her ability to take care of a baby.
So we continue to anxiously anticipate the arrival of “___?___”, and are thankful for each and every opportunity we still have to date and sleep. We finished the baby/guest room on Monday and Chelsey put pictures on our flickr site for those who are interested. Chelsey has made sure I will post a blog for all of you when “____?____” arrives, so that will be the next time you hear from me.
