38 Weeks

Well we made it to 38 weeks! 
I had Jason take this picture this morning, since I was getting ready to walk out the door to work and actually looked relatively nice, although I may not be feeling it.  I kept telling my OB that I wanted to make it "all the way" with Butterbean #2, she just kept saying, wait until you get there, then tell me how you feel.  I now understand what she meant.  There is definitely a different between being 36 weeks and 38 weeks.  I'm truly grateful Butterbean #2 has held out this long, but I can honestly say Mama is ready!  We will see what happens in the next week.  I have an appt tomorrow, so we shall see if the doctor has anything to say.  We are definitely getting excited about meeting our newest addition.  We've been talking with Matthew about "baby brother" (since he still has no name...) and everyday he will ask "meet baby brother" or when he gets in the car he will say "baby brother sit next to Matthew".  He seems to get the idea of "baby brother" but let's see next week once Baby Brother arrives. 
I can't wait to see them together!

Matthew turns 2!

Our sweet Matthew turned 2 and I really can't believe it! 
His birthday fell during a trip to Virginia for a family reunion, however Mama couldn't make the trip due to travel restriction. 
Matthew had a great celebration with his cousins and the entire Dean family!

Andrew & Bryson celebrating with Matthew!

Matthew's adorable birthday cake!

Cousin Andrew helping with presents!

It's hard to believe Matthew is 2, and in a few more weeks he will become a big brother.  He's grown up so much and becoming such a little boy, although he will always be my baby!

36 Weeks - let's see how far we make it!

Yep there he is in all his glory, my Butterbean # 2 belly at 36 weeks!  Please ignore the self taken photo.  I've done a horrible job taking belly pics this go around.  I guess when you're running after a toddler you just forget.  But I thought since this is the exact day when I was pregnant with Matthew that my water broke, I should at least get one belly shot. 
I had an OB appointment yesterday and the doctor said everything looked fine, so really now it's just a waiting game to see if I make it all the way to July 26th, which is the day of my c-section.  I'm feeling pretty good, other than feeling quite large and of course the heat in Atlanta is brutal right now.  We are making progress on Butterbean # 2's room.  Jason has to move out his desk, but the crib is 90% put together.  Sadly we still haven't agreed on a name yet...  I have one in mind, in the event we don't agree on something by the time we head to the hospital.  I did however pack a bag last weekend, since the last time I literally went to the hospital with only my purse.  I was also thinking that maybe my preparedness would help keep him in a big longer.  Call me superstitious :)
Now it's just a waiting game, so we shall see what happens!
