5.5 more days

This is crazy! We literally only have 5 and a half more days. It doesn't seem real at all. I realize that I am huge and incredibly uncomfortable. I realize that there is definitely something acrobatic in my belly that moves around inside of , but completely independent of me. I have seen several ultrasonic and heard his heartbeat at least 15 times, but when it all adds up.... well, it still doesn't seem like this could possibly be accurate. I have always marveled when I saw a new baby- how that child could possibly have been in my friend's belly just a few days before. I guess I somehow thought that when it was me, it would make sense--- wrong. It really doesn't. I guess there are some things that are just complete and total marvels- even when you are the key player in the process. Ian has been consuming my resources for 9 months now, but even with the substantial and very real drain of my physical resources so obvious- the idea that another human being is inside is bewildering. And to think that we first saw him at 4mm and now he is 7 or so pounds is amazing. That's quite a lot to grow.

Dave and I are both so excited we can't think straight. Ian has consumed our every thought for since February. We wonder what he will look like, what his personality will be like, and in what ways our life will change. It really is another veil experience--- I have NO IDEA what my life will be like in one week! None at all! But yet, I am thrilled!
