40 weeks...

YEA! Today I went to the Dr. for my 40 week check up. Looks like things are progressing nicely. I'm dilated 4 cm and 50% effaced. Not sure what it all means... but Dr. Flippin-Trainer says it's good so I'll take it! Right now we're expecting to have lil Corbs before the weekend, but just in case I'm scheduled for induction on Monday morning, 6am. Woooooo. Time to go pack my bag, clean the house and get ready.

When I got home from the appointment and told Jamon his response was classic. "Whoa, so I'm gonna be like a real dad soon... Not a pretend one." Yes sir. Then we sat down in shock that this whole "era" of our lives is about to end and new one is going to begin. It's bittersweet. I've loved the "Jamon and Jessica" life. He's my best friend and we can hang out everyday and do whatever, whenever (as long as their isn't a game or practice or weight-lifting. ;) ) And now with a baby things will be different and we'll be "Jamon and Jessica and Corban." Scary and exciting all at the same time. I'm so thankful for the time that Jamon and I had to be just us. It's been a blessing and certainly a time we'll cherish. We can hardly wait for Corban to be here though. We tell him everyday that we love him and can't wait to meet him.

Time flies.

So basketball season is in full force. YEA!!!!!! One of my favorite times of year. I absolutely love Jamon's team and love my role of being "team mom." In fact, as I type this all of my boys are sitting in the living rm watching film from their last game and eating the jillions of warm cookies I baked. I mean seriously, what good is film without cookies? Right now the team is 2-0, meaning they've won two games and lost 0. So proud! Their next game is Friday but I don't think I'm gonna make it. Bummer.  Here's a pic of my boys, lookin so sharp!

Alright, the timer is going off which means I've got more cookies to dish out. Then I reaaaalllly should get started on getting everything ready for Corban. It's just so hard to believe that he'll actually be here soon. Say a prayer for us as we begin this new chapter. Please pray for a safe and healthy delivery.

Joy, joy, joy.

Jessica - after reading this, I for sure want to bake cookies...but for sure not another pregnancy! It is a wonderful time and I truly loved being pregnant. Your words make it all come flooding back and I tear up just thinking about it all. With the twins being 25 and Lynley 21 I just have loved every minute of it. Now stop making me cry and go have that baby boy! Lori
