week. 36.

I couldn’t pic favorites this week… so you get twice as many as normal!  YAY!  ITS LIKE CHRISTMAS!  ok… done with the caps thing.   my bad.

Ok so it is official.  I have ADD or something like it.  I know this because the doctor told me.  JK, I already knew.  Tomorrow I start medication so we will see how that goes.  Let me know if you notice a difference… good or bad.

Kate’s prenatal today was about our options as far as the breeched babyjedi.  Option 1: don’t do anything.  Option 2: scary aversion thing (joking, its actually called a “version”)  Anyways, basically if the baby doesn’t flip… naturally or unnaturally… Kate will be having a C-section.  Which is obviously the cool way to be born.  I know this because I was born via the cesarean section.  And that is how all of the celebs do it right?

In all seriousness. It is a really strange feeling knowing that after all of these classes and 9 months of preparing for the most intense day of our lives, we might be just picking a day to have this baby in under an hour.  Almost as if it were a casual thing.  Oh… the 4th?  sure that sounds like a good day to get this kid out of there.  Neither of us are very fond of the idea.  But in the end, if we have babyjedi in our arms then it wont matter.

A strange thought just occurred to me.  Some day babyjedi, you are going to grow up, and in growing up someday you will probably read all of these.  I know I would if I was you.  So first of all, I love you.  And second, it’s not your fault you haven’t flipped yet at this point.  I am sure you have your reasons.  And we love you regardless!  This is really weird talking to you in the future.  I hope that life is going good for you, and that I am still an awesome parent.  Either way, know that your mother and I love the crap out of you!  Always.

Ok… wow enough of that, I am about to choke up.  So yeah, we have some decisions to make here, but I am sure we will make the right ones!

And check out those pictures again, because I love them a lot.  They might be my favorite so far.  Such a beautiful girl and a beautifully simple sunset.


thanks for looking, twice :)

    – scheduled c-section is a much more controlled and calm environment as opposed to a STAT one (on the spot)
    – they’ll do an ultrasound just before the c-section. so if in fact the baby has moved into the labor position they’ll call it off.
    – healing time for a c-section and vaginal delivery are relatively the same. Just soreness in different areas.
    – c-sections result in less leakage. Kate won’t experience the 4-6 week long heavy period.
    Regardless, the bottom line is you want your baby to be healthy and it will be. This can be a very stressful time. We’re praying God grants you discernment in this time. Good luck with everything & love this week’s pics :)

Obviously because your gonna be even more amazing than you already are.. Don’t be afraid of it. =) babyjedi has a plan.
