week. 38.

This is how you cornily star wars joke.  “There….. is… another…. sprague…. walk…. ehhhhhh…..”    The reason Babyjedi is so strong in the force?   Mommyjedi!

The caption for the last image was too long so I’ll just put it here :  ” Just keep swimming.  Just keep swimming.  Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.  What do we do?  We swim. Swim. SWIM.  OH HA HA HO How I love to swim!  When you WAAAAAANNTTT to swim you want To…”  ahem… ok… had to get that out.   I love that movie.

First of all, I need to thank my awesome friend Ben for the Princess Leia beanie.   It is by far the coolest beanie ever made.  Not to mention the other two, equally cool, star wars beanies that he got for me and babyjedi… those will be coming in future posts :)

So… it comes down to it.  Kate and I have to decide this week whether or not to try the ECV (External Cephalic Version) or just schedule the c-section and hope Babyjedi pulls a fast one on us and flips before that day.  Not to sound like a broken record, but we still have no idea what we should do.  Both options seem like the right choice for different reasons.   But yeah I don’t really want to think about that right now.  So lets talk about the bright side of things.

We are probably going to be meeting this kid in a week or so!!!!!!!  I can’t believe it.  The time is now.  We stand at the edge of an 8 year run.  8 years of being together alone.  And what an epic 8 years it has been.  Its hard to believe… In so many ways it seems like yesterday, it was senior year, when we first started to hang out.  Having food fights.  Flirting.  Swimming in random rivers wearing our school clothes.  And in just as many ways it feels like an eternity has passed since then.  Time, it’s a funny thing.  It is so hard get a grasp on.  The only thing I can say for sure is how fast it goes by.

Well Katherine, my dear, it has been amazing.  I wouldn’t trade a single second of it for anything.  None of the road trips.  None of the time apart.  None of the fights.  None of the parties.  None of the movie nights.  None of the superiduclouslycheesy notes that we used to pass each other.  None of it.  I wrap my arms around all of it and keep it tight to my chest.  And I look forward to every second after this one.  All of the happy seconds and all of the not so happy seconds.  This is my life and I am so excited about where it will take me.

Ok enough of this sap.  We still have the week 39 blog to do, so I don’t want to use it all up :)

Kate is very uncomfortable in general.  She has a hard time breathing and moving around in general.  I think we are both ready for this pregnancy to end and hopefully also ready for our new family of 3 to begin!

That’s All Folks.


thanks for looking,

    I LOVE following your blog! Mommy is so cute with her belly!!! I started looking for baby blogs a while back when I found out I was expecting and was inspired to start my own! http://www.birminghambell.wordpress.com – It’s a beginners blog, but hey…it’s kinda fun to keep up with how the pregnancy goes! I figure it will be really fun to have as a keepsake for baby later in life! :) Good luck with baby Jedi I hope he/she flips asap!!!
