30 weeks

I'm afraid with this whole Korea mess, this poor little man has been very overlooked. It isn't that we haven't been excited to have a new baby, but more that we haven't had a whole lot of time to think about it, so we just sort of forget that we're going to have a real, live baby really soon. However, I can honestly say that I am getting very excited to have him here. I can't wait to see what he looks like and what his little personality will be. So far, he is the opposite of his sister in almost every way. He sleeps most of the time and likes to hang out right over my belly button, whereas Evie never stopped moving and was super low. Evie has yet to stop moving, in case you were wondering. I predict he will be much more mellow than his older sis and will hopefully not cry all day long. We haven't bought him anything yet because we've been too focused on getting ready to move, but I finally made the leap today and bought him some jammies, a crib sheet, and a crib bumper. Now all we need is a crib! We've learned recently that there is a really good chance we will be able to have at least 3 bedrooms when we are in Korea, so that's a huge relief to me and I can actually plan on making a nursery for little man.

I am almost 32 weeks, so we should be seeing him in 8 weeks or so, which is not at all a long time. I wonder what Evie's reaction will be. How will she react to having a baby around all the time? I'm sure she will be super jealous at first, poor thing. I kind of wish her time as an only child could last a little longer, but there's nothing I can do about that now.

I may not sound like it most of the time, but I am really, very excited to meet this kid. I see babies at church and pictures of my friends' babies, and I seriously cannot wait to meet him. I feel like I know him already, so I just really want to see him. Will he look like me, or will he look just like Dan? Can't wait to find out!

gray and blue
this is the look I'm going for, though more blue and less turquoise.

my first purchases for the little guy


  1. You're great. All is well! I bet he's going to be a lot calmer than Evie. Karma, you know?
