It is really hard to believe that I have actually come this far and that this baby growing inside of me is so close to joining our family now; T-4 weeks until my due date. I have days where this excites me and I have days where that idea overwhelms me. My hope is that I can handle it! I hope that all the challenges that lay ahead of me this year, that I will be able to over come them without losing myself and my cool. I pray that Porter will be ok with it. He is a little ball of energy that never stops moving and he challenges me and my abilities on a daily basis, but I love him to pieces, and he brings so much joy into my life. I know that the addition of this little person inside of me will only bring me more joy than I could imagine. So bring on the stretch marks and the pregnancy mask and achy hips, I can do it!!!
