25 days until D-day.
I fully understand I could go past my due date- up to 2 full weeks even, or heck, I could have this kid tomorrow. However for the sake of having some sort of count down I am going with 25 days.
Today's post is going to be about all the things I am and I am not looking forward to once little Kingston is here...
I AM looking forward to meeting my baby- this is by far the strongest feeling I have right now.
I AM NOT looking forward to spending 2 days in the hospital away from my Avani.
I AM looking forward to seeing what Kingston looks like- will he be a chunky hairy baby like Avani or skinny and bald?
I AM NOT looking forward to learning how to change boy's diapers (just being honest here- not saying I WONT change those diapers)
I AM looking forward to time off work!
I AM NOT looking forward to certain people (let's keep them nameless) thinking it is OK to come over to my house 10 times a week to see the baby. -*Mom- if your reading this I don't mean you :)
I AM looking forward to Avani meeting her new brother and watching their bond grow
I AM NOT looking forward to the heartache I know is inevitable for my sweet girl to feel when I will need to focus more time away from her and on the new baby. My heart already hurts for these moments she has no idea are coming.
I AM looking forward to getting my body back- I don't mean figure wise, I know that will take time and realistically I will never be a model- I am totally fine with that. I mean I can't wait to bend over without feeling like I may pop, or sleep lying down, or go for a bike ride, or heck- get out of a chair without grunting!
I AM NOT looking forward to how much work and dieting it will take me to do the above!
I AM looking forward to watching Nick with a boy- he is awesome with his girls, but seeing him coach the football team, or teach Kingston how to swing a hammer- those are the moments I really am excited for.
I AM NOT looking forward to the extra expenses a new baby brings (mostly in the shape of daycare and health insurance!).
In the end I am so excited for this blessing to come to it's next chapter, I feel so lucky to have the family I do and it will be so interesting to see how little Kingston shakes things up in our family of mostly girls ;)
