I Can't Wait...

*To be able to see my feet again.*To be able to walk up my stairs without causing heart palpitations.*To be able to chase my 2-year-old as he takes off down the street without feeling like my legs are going to spontaneously disconnect from my hip sockets (or wishing that they would...ouch!)*To be able to cut my toenails, put on socks, etc without fighting a beach ball.
*To be able to sit comfortably on the couch to watch a movie without this little creature's body parts lodging in my ribs.
*To have a waist again.
*I could go on and on...
But mostly I can't wait to hold one of these again.And I wish I could take a picture like that!

Side note: One thing that I have to be thankful for in this pregnancy...No Fred Flintstone feet!
(First pic is of my feet a few weeks before Dylan was born, the second was just today!)

I'm impressed! I got the Fred Flintstone feet syndrome with each one. Some worse then the others... but still there. But besides that, I LOVE your post!

Wow, you're making me so excited for the end of pregnancy!!

Those are some sweet feet.

i had the worst swollen feet with ethan. maybe it was because it was a summer baby. the last few weeks are the absolute hardest, aren't they. hope he comes a little early for you!

Sonja said...

Oh, I'm so excited for you too, Poppy!

And I'm SO GLAD that your feet are looking slim and beautiful. The other picture looks so painful.

I can't wait to see pictures of the newest member of your beautiful family!

Hang in there.

Oh my goodness. These are the very things that are on every woman's mind during that last month or two of pregnancy.

I wish I had seen your feet pic when I was pregnant with my last. My feet were always so swollen.

What a cute post--- I can relate so well- (oh no that does not mean I am pregnant- just remembering -that's all). Hang in there!

seriously i thought that top picture of feet was one you found off the internet. I can't believe those are actually yours! And I am starting to feel your pain, I still have 8 weeks left! I tried cutting my toenails today and thought I might pass out from lack of oxygen to the brain, then I hurt my back unplugging the tub drain. today has been fun!

Oh, that's a funny contrast...those feet! It sounds like YOU ARE READY!!!!

Oh, my goodness! I love the feet pictures. Compared to your feet now, the picture of your feet with Dylan almost doesn't even seem real. Mine did that with Elizabeth at the end, but I didn't think to take a picture. Now I wish I would have.
