Crossing the finish line

2 more days. TWO. And I'll become a mom.

I guess I'm calmer than most people because I got a lot of comments yesterday like, "are you freaking out?" and "are you sure you're ready?" It actually left me wondering if I'm reacting normally to all of this...??

Honestly, I'm trying to stay calm for my own sanity...if I start getting nervous now I'll be a disaster by Tuesday.

I keep looking around the house and thinking, less than a week from now, Frank and I will be sharing this house with another person. FINALLY. It's why we bought this house in the first place, 2.5 years ago. It was meant to be for more than two people all this time.

He's still sleeping. I've been up since 5:45...yeah, I know, this is when I should be sleeping as much as possible (if I hear that one more time I might deck someone, LOL)...but I can't. I'm ok, I feel rested...sleeping has just been anything but an easy task these days.

We've got a busy day ahead...we have manis/pedis/wax in a little while, then going to see my dad, then to the cemetery to see Grandma, then to Clori's. We're making the family rounds today, since tomorrow will be spent alone...just the two of us...our final day as a family of two.

I am amazed that I'm actually typing that last sentence...for a LONG time I wasn't sure if I'd ever be able to.

oh Melissa, how absolutely wonderful it is to see you nearing that finish line. i can't think of any inspirational words, but you have been so strong through all of your IF struggles, and here you are, about to become little Miss A's mommy. you will be a wonderful mommy. you will never take one moment of it for granted, you'll welcome those nights of no sleep, and diaper explosions, and the crying for no reason. When others complain about having to deal with these things, you'll know better. I guess it's the one thing IF does... through all the trouble and sadness, you've learned to appreciate God's gifts in a way so few will ever understand.

Congrats again, and I can't wait to see your little miracle baby's pictures.
