Anxiously awaiting...


With three days until the "due date" we can't help but feel anxious and impatient. We are preparing for our little guy to be late, just to better handle the disappointment of the due date coming and going. We still are full of hope that our little guy will make his appearance sooner than later. Mom Whitesell flew in on Monday and we are enjoying spending time with her. Aimee and Heather will be here Wednesday for a few day visit. Our house is completely ready for the baby, and the hospital bag is packed. We know our lives are about to drastically change and it is the most exciting and scary feeling on earth.
The weather in Utah is beautiful right now and Kevin and I just spent the morning up Maple Canyon hiking around. We really enjoyed spending some time together and appreciating the beautiful world around us. We are in a truly amazing stage of our lives. We know the trials of life must be right around the corner, but things seem so perfect, so calm, so surreal right now. With that said, I don't know why on earth we are being so impatient for the future, because the present is truly wonderful.
