My last day at work was Wednesday until October!! I am officially on maternity leave. WOOHOO!! I plan to spend these next couple of days before the new baby arrives exploring with Bean. So far he is we are LOVING IT!! Puppet shows and story times, sleeping in (at least until around 8am that is) and snacks on the balcony I am in heaven.

I am also super excited about giving birth!! I never thought I could be this excited to go into labor. The excitement of being able to give birth in water AND have my hands be the first to touch the new baby AND having it all documented by photographer Maegan Dougherty AND having my placenta encapsulated by Thalla-Marie Choxi of Live, Laugh, Doula has me floating on cloud 9. Bean has been rubbing my belly and talking about “baby” a lot more lately too which makes me smile and baby goes wild in the belly!!

I just can’t wait!!

Baseball fun with his girls.
