35 Weeks

It's hard to believe that today Ruby is 35 weeks and in just 14 short days would be considered full term if she decided to make her appearance. The time has flown by and I can't believe our little girl is going to be with us soon. It has been a fun journey from the day I greeted Bobby at the door with a positive pregnancy test and a slightly manic expression and told him we were pregnant. There was definitely apprehension mixed with the excitement.

But our little girl soon dispelled any anxiety we had, and at our first prenatal appointment and ultrasound, we both were awed at the little being growing in my belly. Seeing her move and hearing her heartbeat made the whole thing real and we embraced the idea of our Ruby Grace whole-heartedly.

Bobby has been wonderful, especially the last few weeks as fatigue has set in and I have little motivation to do stuff around the house. The way he comes home and kisses the belly and schmoopy talks to his girl is so tender, and I can't wait to see him as a father. I can't wait for Ruby to come out too...her pushing and shoving is getting a little uncomfortable and I'm getting to the point where I want to love her outside instead of inside.

We are excited to see her, too!
We love all three of you!
