I have loved the summer weather, but I am so excited it's starting to feel like fall outside. It is definitely my favorite season. The air is nice and crisp and it's the perfect weather for a light jacket. Love it! Plus fall brings my husband's favorite holiday--Halloween! We, of course, have already decorated...Patrick wanted to decorate starting about the middle of September, but we waited until the first day of October.
Fall is also supposed to bring the birth of our first child, but at this point, she still isn't here. I think the 2 weeks before my due date felt like an eternity (I just want the little sweetie here!), but now that I'm past my due date I think these days will feel even longer. I'm beginning to be convinced that she's never going to come. I know it's irrational, but I'm getting impatient and just want this birth thing over with so that we can start enjoying the new member of our family. Daddy has had a mid-term, final project, and final this week though, so maybe she's being courteous to him and waiting til he's done with all that. So, hopefully tomorrow after his final is over she will come meet the world. If not, we wait more. Luckily my doctors will only let me go a week over, so she's coming on October 14 whether she likes it or not! :) I can't imagine going 2 weeks over...it would be pure insanity.
Other good news, Chad comes home from his mission on October 15. Exactly one week from today. I think my mom is about ready to burst. She is impatiently waiting for her first grandchild and her oldest son to come home. All in the next week!
As for other updates, Patrick found a job which we are so grateful for. He works as a tutor at an elementary school. He has been working for a week. And now that I think about it, I have to repeal an earlier statement. I really wasn't very anxious about the baby coming until he started work on Monday. I was just freaked out about bringing a child into the world with no source of income. But since Monday, I've been anxious. Which has only been four days, but it seems like forever when you have nothing exciting to do but wait for labor. Patrick's job works nicely with his bizarre class schedule, so it is the perfect job. The one downside is that he will not receive a real paycheck until December 1 which means the job came just in time! Because another 2 months without income is about all we can handle.
Hopefully the next time I post on this thing I will have a picture of our cute Megan. If not, my worst fears have come true and I've been pregnant for the last 9 months with nothing inside me.
