Back to Life...Back to Reality

The reality is that Daddy went back to Nebraksa and that Baby Keaton will, Lord willing, be here safe and sound SOON!

Yes, Mark made it home safe and sound.  Thank the Lord for that.  We had a good weekend with a few stresses.  Overall, though, it was good to get hugs and kisses whenever I wanted them and for the kids to enjoy Daddy so, so much!

This morning, my dad said, "Conrey, where is your Daddy?"  His response was, "Nebraksa.  Choo-Choo Trains."  I thought that that was pretty smart for such a little guy!

Today, I am 35 weeks, 5 days.  In one week and 2 days, I will be full term.  There are times when I look back at this pregnancy and feel that it has draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaged on.  However, I think of the fact that I'm that close to term and only 1 month today away from my due date and I almost cannot believe I'm so close!  I am so anxious to have this section of our lives behind us.  This separation has been tough!  Willing it to hurry by is so bittersweet because I don't want to leave my family and dear friends, but at the same time.  However, we NEED to be together as a family as soon as possible!

Well, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.  Daddy's trip home is over and done and we're back to the reality of what has been normal for us for over 5 weeks now.  We will not have to wait that long again and we'ew ALL happy about that!

I am glad the weekend was good for everyone. You are doing a great job holding down the fort while Mark is gone and even though I (and many others) will miss you greatly, I am thankful for the time I have been able to spend with you and get to know you. Have a great week birthday girl! Love ya!

Glad he was able to come down!!! Praying that this time goes well but that you get to remember everything with this pregnancy just like the other two :) Who knows with the experiences during this pregnancy this may be your most independent thinker of the three of them :) YIKES!!!! :)
