Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

Our last day

It's our last day. Our last day as a family of four. I barely remember the last couple of days before the girls were born. I remember being in a lot of pain and getting no sleep at all. I itched and itched. I was so ready to be done being pregnant.

This time around I am trying to remember. I want to be able to (sort of) remember life with just the girls. I don't want it all to be a big blur like last time. Today is the last day that I will be pregnant. Ever! Today is the last day I will be a mother of two. Ever!  Today is the last day that I will be the mom of only my girls. As excited as I am to meet baby I feel like there is a part of you that feels a little loss over the family you will no longer have. Maybe that sounds stupid but I feel like I need to say goodbye to this life we have.

It's all pretty surreal. We are definitely as ready as we're going to be. I know we all have some real surprises in store. There are things that none of us can anticipate with our new family member. No amount of prepping will make us totally ready. So we're as ready as we're going to be. 

It's just a matter of hours until he'll be here. We're going to do our best to enjoy this last day together. I don't know if I'll post again today or tomorrow. We're not going to pay a lot of attention to computers or phones for the next couple of days. If you call or text and we don't respond please don't take it personally. We want to relax and try to take it all in.

Keep those prayers and good wishes coming. We'll update as often as we can!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
