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!
