Sunny days & a sweaty countdown...

Its hard to believe that I'm already half way through my first week of mat leave.  The weather has been the ultimate reward--- +30 degrees everyday.  I heard today is supposed to hit +33 or +34.  And its only June 3.  We could be in for a very hot summer if this keeps up.  Yesterday's heat made me extremely grateful for the fact that I won't have to be pregnant through the hottest part of the summer.  If this is June, and I'm already perma-sweating, then I can't imagine how brutal July & August might be!  Thank goodness I only have another couple of weeks to go :)

Only 19 days til "D-day."  Wow.  I'm not sure its even sunk in that I will be holding a baby in my arms so soon.  I mean, we've been preparing for months and counting down the days, but its still so hard to imagine what that day will be like.  Plus, the reality that I still have to get through the labour part is a little daunting.  Ok... so its a lot daunting :)  But thankfully the excitement that continues to build as we get closer and closer, helps that part feel a bit less intimidating.  Maybe that's naive.  Or maybe its just positive thinking.  Either way, I'm eagerly anticipating the moment when labour is a distant memory, and cuddling our little one becomes a part of every day life.  I truly can't wait!

Yeah! So excited for you and honestly labor wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Hope you can relax during these last few days before he/she arrives.

As soon as the in-laws are gone, you need to run over here and sit in the kiddie pool or even better we could convince our husbands to put up the neighbourhood adult pool!
