I Can’t Wait…

Overall, I’d say I’m a pretty patient person. I’m usually content with life just as it is and I really try to enjoy every moment. Right now I am LOVING staying with my parents. My Mom and I have been able to spend so much time together and do things that we haven’t been able to do in years. It’s been so awesome to shop for baby stuff with her and to be able to talk every day- IN PERSON!  I was even blessed enough to spend Mother’s Day with her for the first time in ten years. I am trying to cherish each of these special moments because I know it will be over in the blink of an eye.

That being said, I have SO many amazing things to look forward to and I have to admit I’m getting kind of impatient. Here’s my list of things I just can’t wait for:

I can’t wait for my baby shower. It will be so much fun to celebrate Emerson! I will definitely miss all of our friends and family who live out of town- I wish they could be there!


I can’t wait to see my awesome hubby. It’s been two months so far and will almost be 3 by the time he gets here. I.miss.him.

I can’t wait to meet my beautiful baby girl.

I can’t wait to be a mommy.


I can’t wait to show her off to all of our family and friends.

I can’t wait to see family that we haven’t seen in so long.

I can’t wait to see my best friend Mandy (and her baby Ann Elise) who I haven’t seen in almost 6 years!


I can’t wait to get to work on losing this baby weight.


I can’t wait to start running and working out again.


I can’t wait to have a glass of wine or a beer. Smile


I can’t wait to wear cute clothes again!


I can’t wait until Jesse leaves Africa for good!


I can’t wait to move to our next post and start our new lives as a family of three!


I can’t wait for everyone to come visit us at our next post. Now that we’re going somewhere good we’ve had quite a few people promise to come see us. We’re holding every one of them to that promise. I’m sure they’ll all be coming to see Emerson more than to see us but hey- that’s ok.

Is there anything that you just can’t wait for?
