The Journey

Its getting closer!

Mesha is now almost 33 weeks and that means we are less than two months away from a baby. Yikes!!!! I am not ready, yet! Can't we wait a little longer? Ok, I know that it is a rediculous response and yes I am terribly excited to meet our little one, but now that it is looming in the very near future, it is freaking me out a little bit. It doesn't help that I hung out with my brother-in-law last night that has one less than a month old and is telling me that I will never sleep again. So, pray for me because school, work, and a baby seems a little overwhelming at the moment.
Mesha is doing well and probably is beginning to have the opposite feelings that I expressed above. She is actually feeling really well, but is probably ready to get this thing out of her. We were at the doctor this week and he asked if we were having a girl when he finished listening to the heart beat. (We haven't seen this doctor in our group very much, so he didn't know we tried to find out, but couldn't) When we explained the situation and told we didn't know, first he thought that was great and then he said that his guess was girl according to the heart rate. I would be terribly excited if he is right. For some reason I really want a girl first. However, we all know I am going to be goo goo over boy or girl, so it really doesn't matter. Hope y'all are doing great out there!

    You probably won't get much sleep at night for the first few months, but you also won't be able to imagine life before the baby. It is awesome! I am so excited for you guys; you will be great parents!

    Girl, girl, girl, girl, we want a girl!!!!!

    I know exactly how you feel -- it's scary because you don't know exactly what to expect, and it's scary because you kind of DO know what to expect!! But I know you, and I know you are going to be a FANTASTIC dad--and you are going to fall so head over heels in love with that little GIRL (ok, or boy) and that's all that's going to matter. It's hard -- there's no getting around that -- it's the hardest thing you'll ever do. But it's also amazing and wonderful and worth it beyond your wildest imagination!

    We are so excited for you guys -- and for us! It's so exciting to watch our little Torkelson family expand! We love this little one so much already and we just can't wait to meet her (...ok, or him!)

    We love you!!
