It’s funny to think about how unimportant September 28th was just over nine months ago. Poor September 28th was probably going to be “just another Wednesday” riddled with Wednesday-like tasks and typical Wednesday-like hopes that the weekend would arrive sooner. But then our family of two became a family of three, and boring ol’ September 28th became SEPTEMBER 28TH. A day to circle and star and decorate on every calendar in our home and on our phones. The estimated day of Baby B’s arrival. Her BIRTHday, in every sense of the word. And my goodness have we been eager to meet her.
So here we are. September 28th. Still waiting to greet this baby girl we’ve already been talking with and getting to know for the past nine months. In the meantime, I thought I’d share our first family selfie that we took nearly nine months ago, right after our first ultrasound appointment. Baby B was looking like the cutest little 8-week lump we’d ever seen, and her tiny heartbeat amplified on the ultrasound machine was decidedly the BEST sound I had ever heard.
We’ll most likely spend today sipping hot apple cider, going on a walk, and giving in to the pregnancy fatigue that has come on strong these last two weeks. Waiting is always better when there’s apple cider within reach. We’re so excited to meet you, baby girl!
