The Final Countdown

Eeeee! Last day before Sophie! I have my "To-Do Before Baby" list out and am trying to just... feel ready. On one hand, I totally do, but on the other... how can anyone feel completely ready for a baby?

It just feels so surreal.

We are going to attempt to keep updates traveling out via this site and our twitter. Obviously this depends on what exactly is happening and how we are feeling, BUT... we will attempt it. =)

We check into the hospital tonight. Here we go!

love,
Kyle and Court

PS: Several new vlogs up on our youtube!

The Last Weekend

So, Sophie and I got bumped to Tuesday. I am checking in Monday night to start the softening of my cervix and then being induced early Tuesday morning. Eeee!

Vlogs I will post before:
-Sophie's Completed Nursery
-Hospital Bag
-Nursery Craft Project
-Information Vlog (the when, where, and why of Sophie coming plus when to expect more)

Vlogs I will TRY to post before:
-House Vlogs (a house prep video and a separate final house one)

I am suppose to be in bed, but I am about to run out and get my haircut b/c I have let it get way longer than I like holding off until before the baby which I think counts as now! Tomorrow I have my sister-in-law's shower which I was told to miss by my doctor but am not going to. I am just going to stay on my bottom. And then I PROMISE to relax. =)

BTW, Kyle and I celebrated out 4 wedding anniversary yesterday. Awesome. We have been together for over ten years and now, married for 4. Go Team Hale! He means everything to me and I always tell him he is the person who annoys me least in the entire world, which if you think about, says a lot. I wouldn't want to do this thing called life without him. We still have SO much fun and he is the most supportive and wonderful person I could have asked for. Bring on the baby!

love,
Court

9 months

So, I made it to the 36 weeks or 9 months of pregnancy. Wow. I am going to let the vlog do the updating for me, but to sum up: I have preeclampsia and am being induced on labor day (harhar), UNLESS my blood pressure goes up too high, then it will be earlier. Sooooo... no one stress me out! =) The most potentially stressful thing I have going on is hosting my sister-in-law's bridal shower on Saturday, but I am doing everything possible to keep things low key. I will have lots of help, so that is good. I am really excited about it and am so glad I won't have to miss it (in theory).

I have been having trouble sleeping lately for obvious reasons... so much on my mind! I need to regroup my thoughts and make a fresh to-do list to make me feel more in control.

I am SO excited to see Sophie!

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KYLE!!!

love,
