34 WEEKS…SEPTEMBER 2009

Little man, we are mere weeks away from meeting you.

I cannot believe it.
A lot has happened in the last few weeks…
I started my new job on the Child/Adolescent Inpatient Unit @ Behavioral Health.
It feels so right, and I am so thankful for the opportunity.
I’m trying to get all of my orientation hours in before you arrive – it’s crunch time!
We went to the beach a few weekends ago with our best friends in the world.

We stayed in a house on the sound @ Ocean Isle, and it was glorious.
This past Saturday, your daddy sent me on an adventure.
He left me these notes, complete with instructions & addresses via email on my iPhone.
Inside each envelope, there was a picture (the boys were in on this) and Christopher’s sweet words related to each location…

I got a chocolate & banana smoothie here:

I got my nails done here (Manicure – OPI, Hopelessly In Love; Pedicure – OPI, At Your Quebec and Call):

I got my first-ever facial here:

When I returned home, teary-eyed from all of the love and pampering he’d put me through, he was waiting for me with one last envelope… there was a box of beautiful stationary (he’d affirmed my gift with words and asked me to keep writing him notes) and a card that read, “Will you have dinner with me?” When we arrived @ RuSan’s, my family was there waiting to have dinner with us! Needless to say, my beloved husband orchestrated one mama’s afternoon to remember. How amazing is your papa, Ames?!
My sweet friends from nursing school threw you a tea party @ Amelie’s this past Sunday. It was so beautiful, and of course they showered you with gifts! There were little onesies made out of scrapbook paper, on which people wrote notes. They’re going up on your bedroom walls very soon! I had a blast.

I ordered my birth kit, per Damaris’ instruction. I have to have all of my supplies ready for her visit next week… this means you’re actually going to be born. EEEEKK!!
I love you, little man. Thanks for being so sweet these last several months…
