30 Weeks!!!

Wow..... 30 weeks.... only 10 to go.... in 7 weeks I could have the baby and she would be full term. 7 weeks. That's.... nothing!!!

I can't seem to wrap my mind around the fact that we're going to have a baby. A human life. A child. A responsibility. Bauer will no longer be our #1 worry. (although, he'll still be a worry - he's my first baby!)

We have officially gotten our crib, and it's in a million pieces on the floor. The wonderful people at Storkcraft did not send us any instructions so it's going to stay that way until we get new instructions. Photos to come. Promise!!

Everything else is going awesome! No new developments, other than the fact that I can REALLY feel her moving now. Sometimes her head sticks out of my stomach. It's uncomfortable, but doesn't hurt so it's just cool to look at. I can't wait until she's here!

So on a friends blog, she posted some Advice for your Teenage Daughter. I read it and I thought it was a wonderful list. So... here it is:

Advice for a Teenage Daughter
  1. Even if you have just been shot with a tranquilizer dart for elephants, don't sleep in your makeup. Or contact lenses.
  2. What separates a professional eyebrow arch from the amateurs is scissor-trimming. This is the least important item on this list, but It took me 38 years to find out, and I have to pass it onto somebody.
  3. Wear the bikini every chance you can, and use the sunscreen.
  4. Every year you can possibly delay having sex will ultimately make sex that much better. Think of it as the difference between spending every allowance on cheap shoes that don't last, or saving up for some really fabulous Jimmy Choos.
  5. As long as you are in your teens, avoid dating anyone more than three years older than you. At your age, a romantic relationship with an older man is actually neither romantic or a relationship.
  6. You look ugly when you gossip.
  7. Throwing up drunk is not a good look for you.
  8. Save this for later: the person you are now is not the way you behaved then.
  9. Someday, a girl who is horrible to you now will request to be your Facebook friend. And though your cursor will linger a long and delicious moment above the "ignore" button, you will click on "accept" instead, and know that you have grown up.
  10. Go to your prom. Wear the corsage. Stand under the arch. Get the pictures. Really.
  11. Don't waste youth and resiliency. Have adventures. It will never be more appropriate for you to be inappropriate, and society will never be more forgiving. But avoid risks that will narrow your future. Skinny-dipping: yes. Filmed skinny-dipping: no.
  12. Most importantly, hang around for womanhood. I promise, the best is yet to come.
Can't wait to meet you, my darling daughter!!

  1. You are so close!! Don't forget it could still be more like 12 weeks though. Not to be a downer but first babies are much more likely to be overdue. I can't wait to see her little face though! So exciting!


I love comments!
