We could not be more in love and can already see the start of our little family blooming!

And so we wait...

"..When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible." 

We are officially 4 days 'overdue', but who is counting?! But in all reality I feel pretty darn good- as I have throughout this pregnancy. I am soooo thankful for that. When we made today's Dr appt last week, I honestly believed we wouldn't need it; that Mollie would have for sure arrived by now. Well, I am learning a few new things every day!! Dr. says I am MUCH closer to baby this week than I seemed to be last week, so fairly confident Mollie could come on her own in the next couple of days:) We are staying positive that she will, but if not, then we'll start  inducing late Monday, July 5.

This whole due date thing really drives me nuts. I like having a time-line in mind, but at the same time it's kind of your finish line of sorts in your mind and on your calendar. So, when June 26 came...and then went, we were like what now?!  I've had many moments this week of being impatient (imagine that!) but Matt and I both believe wholeheartedly that she will come on her own & when she is ready. We really don't want to disturb Mother Nature and the birth timing.

I made the comment earlier that she is most definitely taking after Matt in her laid-back personality, just chillin' and taking it easy. I think if she were too much like me in the control area, she would have come on the estimated due date or before. Pretty confident God must know what he is doing...not sure if we need two of us real type A's in this household, Matt might just go crazy! No, I am for real.

So, we wait...Our June baby has now turned into a July baby- haha! Good thing the blog name is changing either way:) And who doesn't love the 4th of July weekend and festivities that surround it?! What an awesome birthday time she'll have! I absolutely adore fireworks and we know that time will always be spent cooking out, which we love and being with friends and family, which we love even more!!

Matt and I have faith that all things will fall into place as planned...just not really planned by us unless deemed necessary! Please send good thoughts our way and keep Mollie healthy and happy. We obviously hope to welcome her into the world & our lives this week or when she is good and ready on her own, but if not, then Monday or Tuesday it is! We do want the rest of our lives with her to start as soon as possible:)
