9 Months

I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone. I am now nine months and baby and I are doing great. He is getting so big and strong in his mommy's belly. He has already turned and I think he is getting ready to be here soon. My due date is now only three weeks away, but I don't know if he will make it that long. Some days I feel like he will be here any day. So daddy and I started getting ready for his arrival. We packed my hospital bag and started packing his diaper bag too. I had two amazing showers and Alejandro was showered with gifts, so today we started washing all his clothes and blankets. We are also trying to finish getting his room ready. All this makes everything so real. Seeing so many tiny clothes, blankets and baby items makes everything so much more real. I know that my baby boy has been growing strong in me for nine months already, but seeing all his things come together now too makes everything so much more real. I feel really blessed to have so many great friends supporting me through all of this and some amazing family that made my baby boy some neat blankets.
I also feel so blessed with an amazing husband. He has been so supportive through everything taking care of my every need. Now that we are getting his room ready too, I see him so excited about his little boys arrival. I know that he is going to be an amazing daddy and that is why I feel so blessed. So many things to finish getting ready for, but a beautiful blessing is about to arrive and we are so excited and ready for him now. Alejandro Javier Estrada you are so loved already and Mommy, Daddy, and even Chico are ready for you to be here.
