Liam Isaac: 38 Weeks!

We are at 38 weeks now, people (on Friday we'll be at 39)! Only 10 more days until our due date (Friday, July 6th)! Liam is getting closer and closer to being here. It could be any day now, really. That is crazy awesomeness. :)

I suspect that this may just be our last bi-weekly baby bump photo!!! It's been a really fun series to do, and I know I will appreciate getting to look back and see our little man's growth progress while he was still in the belly.

Things have been going well! I've been feeling pretty good for the most part. Still been having days where I have tons and tons of contractions, but it's all good and normal and progressing things along...so for that, I am thankful! It will make actual labor go smoother. Now we just wait patiently for the "real" thing!

We've been having weekly doctor's visits for a few weeks now. I look forward to our doctor's appointments...I love getting updates to see where we're at! A couple weeks ago we had an ultrasound to do a growth scan, and our little mister is measuring a little large! Two weeks ago he was measuring at (give or take a pound) 7lbs 10oz. :) We're having another ultrasound this Thursday to do another growth scan and to check the fluid and all that jazz. I was kind of suspecting that Liam was going to be a little bigger, since Jonathan and I were both big babies...so I'm not really that surprised. He's going to be so perfect, and I can't wait to see his face! Because of his size, they've been doing some extra monitoring at our appointments, and our doctor says that everything is looking "perfect". He's a healthy boy, and for that I am so thankful.

My mom is coming back in town later this week, and I couldn't be more excited! The rest of the family will be coming down the second week in July. I can't wait to have everyone here! I love it when the whole fam can be together.

The last couple of weeks, we have been busy nesting and getting things ready for Liam's arrival! I've been thankful for the bursts of energy that nesting has given me to get things done. It's kind of amazing! Of course, afterwards I usually need a long night's sleep or a nap...but it's been refreshing to not be exhausted constantly and to actually be able to be productive!

I've been posting little sneak peeks on Instagram (username: tiffanyzajas) which seem to have peeked everyone's interest. Liam's room is really coming together. I'd say it's pretty much finished, except for some final details. There's one wall that I'm still working on some artwork for (and it may take a little while)...and the rug for his nursery won't arrive until mid-July. But other than those finishing touches, I'd say we're ready! And yes, we will be posting a nursery tour when everything is done...but you'll have to be patient and wait until we finish those last few things. :) I'd say this room is now our favorite room in the house. In the mornings and at night, Jonathan and I will often just go and sit in there and look around. It's such a pleasant room to be in, and it's fun to imagine that our baby is going to be in there soon!

We're going to have a baby soon! We've been looking forward to this for 9 months now, and now that it's almost time...it's so hard to wrap my mind around the reality of it. We are so excited and can't wait to start this new chapter in our lives!

Thanks for joining us along the way. It's been fun getting to share this journey with you guys.

Love and blessings!
