We are officially one week from Emmet's due date! Chad and I are definitely hoping to meet our sweet boy in the next day or two! We are so excited to see him and hold him for the first time!! Chad explained our waiting perfectly, "Every night we go to bed thinking it's Christmas Eve, and every morning we wake up and Santa didn't come." At every visit they give us a good report, though- last Friday I was 60-70% effaced and almost 2 cm dilated. It's a good start, but not an exact indicator of when labor will begin. But hopefully this will be the last blog post before the millions of baby pictures start coming :)
We got to spend our Memorial Day on the lake at the camp where I worked for 9 years! It no longer is a camp, but she rents out the rooms so people can enjoy the beautiful view and lakeside property (http://captainsquartersccl.com/). My parents and Allison went down and stayed a night - but Chad and I just drove down for the afternoon! It was so nice and peaceful to be on the lake and with good company. But it was extra special for me to get to show Chad (and Emmet!) the place that is so near and dear to my heart. As Allison said yesterday, "being out there makes my heart happy!"
