31 Week Bumpdate

May 10, 2018

Hudson! I can’t believe it has already been over a week since the last time I wrote to you! Having our Arizona trip in between our week marks really made this last week speed by, and now we are down to just forty days left!!

The trip was so much fun, and I’m so glad we were able to take you with us. It was super hot, and we napped a lot, but you seemed to enjoy it. You slept all through Taylor Swift, probably because I was dancing so much. And we got to go swimming! I think you liked that? I don’t know, but I enjoyed it!

Last week on Wednesday we had a non-stress test that went very well. We were supposed to see the doctor too, but he had to leave to go deliver a baby, so it was a quick appointment. Friday was dad’s birthday, and we had such a fun day! We had a tasty breakfast, went to Best Buy (which I’m sure you’ll become very familiar with), hung out at the lake, finally got you a sno cone, and then had some waffles for dinner! I’m excited for you to get here and be the best late birthday present for your dad. He’s so ready for you, and he will seriously be the best dad you could ever ask for.

Today we have another non-stress test, and then next week we’ll start seeing the doctor ever single week! We are getting so close! This weekend we’re going to start doing some things to prepare for you. We need to do laundry, set up your room, and move some things back to their appropriate places in the house (like bathroom stuff and bottles and all that). We are both really excited to start doing all of this, since we have put it off until now. We just really love you so much and can’t wait for you to be here. Stay safe in there, we love you!!
