20 Weeks

20 weeks

Kinda hard to believe I'm half way there. Half way to meeting my first baby boy!! I am so excited. The girls are too. Zoe kisses my belly constantly. Aris has informed us that she has a baby in her belly just like me. We asked her what her baby's name was, she informed us, "Cinnamon Toast!" She goes around telling everyone about baby Cinnamon Toast & how she's growing in her tummy. I am guessing this is her way of coping with the fact that she will no longer be the baby of the family. Whatever works. Sloan is excited about possibly being at the birth. Dean & I haven't made a firm decision about it yet.

Did I mention I'm having a home birth? I love my midwife Diane Schaub. She is very down to earth & calm. I've always wanted to have a home birth. I like the fact that I won't have to be attached to monitors, lay in bed, or have an IV inserted as soon as I start laboring. It will also be nice to have people I know surrounding me. No nurses I've never seen before. Just a few close friends & family. I'm hoping it will be calm and an experience to treasure. This will be my last birth & I am so grateful to have this opportunity. I'm wondering if any of you have had home births. If you had please feel free to share your experiences.

Having a lot of fun these last few days working on art again. I've started taking pictures of the girls again also. Looking through the pics I took this morning makes me realize just how quickly these little ones are growing up. I love being a mom. I'm loving this stage of my life. Trying to treasure every moment has become my newest obsession. Well that & my craving of chips, dips, & salads ;) Mom, I'll be posting all the pics from the last two months tomorrow. Hugs to you all & thanks for all the congratulations from all of you. I love reading every one of your comments!
