One Month Left...

 I am trying to wrap my head around the fact that in less than a month, I will have another addition to the family to take care of.  Why should I be scared, after all I have done this before, right?  I feel like I have been out of the game for so long though and honestly I have.  Kate is 5!  The thought of going back to diapers, nursing, sleep schedules, etc. has me wondering if I am going to be able to make it.  Obviously I will and I am excited to meet the little guy, but how will I weather is the question.  I guess I will figure it out one way or another.    

I have made some wonderful friends since I moved here to Portland and they threw a not so traditional but instead girls night out baby shower(the best kind!) for me.  We went to Oba's to grab some dinner, a yummy restaurant in the Pearl.  We sat and chatted and had a great time.  They are the best!

Here we are picking out our Christmas tree just last week.  I am at exactly one month to go.  So does that mean I am 8 months or 9?  I can't keep track.  I feel like pregnancy is 10 months, so this pic of me makes me 9 months.  Don't correct me, just agree with me...its easier and it makes me feel better.  My sister in law has offered to take maternity pics of me, but for some reason I can't let her do it.  Vain?  Maybe...So these random shots will have to do.    
And look who showed up for a couple days this past week!  Justin had to give a presentation about a website he and a buddy from dental school have developed at Temple, and he took the kids with him to see Grandma and Grandpa.  I of course couldn't go because of how far along I am but the kids are old enough that we thought it would be a fun trip away for them.  So Val flew in for a couple days to keep me company.  Having her here in Portland was so much fun.  We shopped, ate, shopped, ate, shopped, ate, went to a movie, etc.  It was such a treat and the best timing to have her come out before I take on three kids. I took her to a couple of my favorite eats and then we tried a couple eats I can't ever convince Justin to go to.  This is a pic of us at the Waffle Window!  So yummy!  
Well you can tell that I am pregnant and like to eat with two pics both involving food!  The countdown is on. I am done with this pregnancy thing, but also know it is easier in than out.  So here's to hoping I deliver between Christmas and New Years!

Good luck! You'll do great with 3 kids. And you look entirely too small to be full term. Take the maternity pics- 1. you look awesome, 2. you'll be happy you did later, 3. you never have to show them if they turn out bad. I can't wait to see pics of the new babe!
