At my last prenatal appointment, I was given an induction date. Doctors will induce either the evening of May 9th (Mom's Day!) or the morning of May 10th. Being given the induction date felt both relieving and frightening. We're ready to meet Ms. Zoe, but know that the roller coaster ride begins immediately following her birth. Being in Philadelphia and at CHOP the last several weeks has given me much insight as to what my fellow heart moms go through each day. I thank them so much for being honest and candid about the journey. Even though I know what lies ahead, one can never be prepared for such a challenge. We'll take it one day at a time - and sometimes one hour, one minute at a time.
Hold onto your hats people, Zoe Madison will be here very soon!
In between work, doctor's appointments, etc., the Lihns have been enjoying Philadelphia. Steph and Paul, my sister and brother-in-law, came to visit this last week. It was great having them here and they were a HUGE help with Emerson. Caleb and I got to have two date nights this week!
Instead of writing about all our adventures, I thought you all would enjoy a photo montage of the week in review...
AUNT STEPHIE AND UNCLE PAUL ARRIVE
ADVENTURE AQUARIUM IN CAMDEN, NJ
OUT AND ABOUT IN PHILLY
We've had a very busy week and a half. I have the swollen ankles to prove it! Several people at Sesame Place looked at me like I was a fool to be out and about at 39 weeks pregnant, in 90 degree heat. Perhaps I am a fool, but I live by a new mantra these days:
LIVE FOR TODAY, FOR TOMORROW IS PROMISED TO NO ONE
8 Months Old!
