Chasing the sunset through the mountains

From Instagram: Chasing the sunset through the mountains.

I’m scheduling this post on Thursday, so—God willing—we should be holding our brand new baby boy by the time you read this! {For the latest baby news, be sure to check Facebook or Instagram.}

This little one threw us for a loop, and we spent this past week simply waiting for his arrival, surprised that he wasn’t here yet and unsure if he was ever coming. We attended a few more doctor’s appointments, finished decorating for Christmas, and went for lots of walks. My mom also helped me finish the gifts I made for my Essentials class and bake cookies for the freezer. All in all, the extra week of preparation has left me feeling pretty relaxed about the next few weeks, even with the holidays upon us, so I won’t complain (although I complained plenty at the time!).
