here we go!

so i'm sure many of you have already heard, but "D- day" is tomorrow! that's right folks, this time tomorrow, i will be laying in a hospital bed wondering what in the world i was thinking. ok i'm kidding about the last part, but seriously our lives are about to change in a big way!
so i know my due date isn't until july 3rd, but my doctor graciously agreed to induce me a week early just because i am tired of being pregnant. i promise i didn't whine, it was the nurse's idea. she suggested it to me a week or so ago and i decided to take her up on the offer. i called yesterday to set up an induction, not expecting to get anything before the middle of next week, and she called me back saying saturday at 7:00! so that's that! at 7 in the morning, i will be induced and we will finally get to meet miss Rylee Abigail!
it's weird because even though i've done this whole giving birth thing before, i'm still nervous about it like i've never done it. i just have this overwhelming feeling of wanting her to be perfectly healthy in every way. i also get nervous at the thought of having two kiddos now instead of just one ornery almost 3 year old. i hope there's enough of me to go around! that's why i'm sooooo grateful for my amazing mom who has agreed to bear the burden of having a newborn around for a while at the house when we come home from the hospital. my mom stayed with us when we had Corban and i can't even say how helpful it was to have her around! this time, i think it will be even more helpful since i will be outnumbered by my kiddos once jarred goes back to work. my mom is the best, plus i'm glad we'll get some good mother/daughter time in before she goes on her crazy adventure to Israel.
so all in all, i'm super excited, nervous, a little scared, and filled with love and joy at the thought of bringing a baby girl into the world tomorrow. corban, on the other hand, not so excited... ha!
when he was told that he's going to have to share mommy when his new baby sister gets here, he said, and i quote, "NO! no sharing!" Lord help us...
prayers are appreciated for a safe delivery and healthy baby!...and sanity of course! it may be a while before my next post. i'm gonna be a little busy!
