the last day.

Well, this is it folks. What I believe to be the last day of my first pregnancy!

Wow, I still can't really believe it. In just a few short hours this growing baby will be in our arms instead of curled up tightly in my belly. It is a strange and exciting feeling, growing a baby. At times I have felt like I was so far behind. I didn't have a big enough bump. He wasn't moving enough. I wasn't prepared for his arrival. I was scared about labour...

But now- now we are ready. The bump is fully grown and he is kicking me like a champ. His bottles are washed, we finally bought a bathtub yesterday and our bags are safely packed away in the back of the car. The next time I walk into this house I will be a MAMMA!!

Me- a real life mother to a real life baby! Half me, half Max. What will he look like? What will he dream about? What will he grow up to be? Will he know and understand the life that I come from? What foods will he like and will he be obsessed with cars just like his daddy and big brother?

I have wanted to be a mother my entire life. And after meeting Max and knowing deep down in my heart he was the one for me, I wanted it even more. Not just a baby, but a family. A family with the man that I love more than anything else. And even though the road to here hasn't been easy or without its challenges, fears and conversations of uncertainty, we made it. We have been given this gift and our dreams are about to become a reality. A family of four (plus Toby-cat of course!). I mean, how much more blessed can we get!

Thank you to everyone who has helped us, loved us and supported us along the way. We are more than excited about this next chapter of our lives and can't wait to share your love from all over the world with Lachlan James. Please pray for a safe delivery and happy, healthy little boy.

xoxo,
Max and Michelle
