Patience

by Courtney on July 23, 2013

Welllllll, hello and good morning to all of you! How’s everyone doing on this lovely Tuesday?

I’ve got nothing new to report on over here. In fact, I’m headed off to work for a few hours this morning since Baby Tooth is still camping out in the womb. Damn that Kate Middleton and her royal baby for beating me to the punch!

FYI: The Baby Tooth page was updated this morning, for what is HOPEFULLY the final time!

So, I’m not gonna lie…I’ve never been the best at the whole “patience” thing, and this week it is certainly being tested. Since I’ve been so preoccupied with my own lack of patience, I haven’t done a whole lot in terms of snapping photos for the blog, so you’ll have to bear with me.

BUT, I knew if I didn’t post I might have some of you wondering if anything is, in fact, going down…buuuut since it’s not, I’ll just leave you with a few photos that I’m enjoying this morning.

Have a great day, my friends! Smile

Hang in there, Courtney! I can’t imagine what this waiting game is like. I’m 36 weeks with my first too (also a boy) and I feel like I’m getting impatient already! I recently read a study where they determined that the more accurate average for first time moms is 41w1d – it would be nice if they just told up our due date was at 41 weeks instead of 40, haha! He will be here soon!

Well, and watching that live feed of the Lindo Wing to see the royal baby the first time ;-)

haha patience really is a virtue. Although, I can imagine that this might be the single hardest thing to wait for in the entire world. So, kudos to you for being so patient :-) I was rooting for both your baby and the royal baby to be born on Sunday, my bday!

On the plus side, you’re spending some last minute bonding time with baby tooth!

My Grandma’s favorite saying to her grandchildren is just that – “Patience is a virtue!” …It may be true, but it doesn’t necessarily make the waiting any easier :) Hang in there, Courtney – he’ll be here soon one way or another!!

I am HORRIBLE at waiting for things to happen. I always want things to come right away and it’s hard for me to just let “time happen”! Praying baby tooth makes his way out soon!

Here is to hoping that you won’t have to be patient for too much longer! But then again, I am sure that being a mother is going to require plenty of patience! Maybe this is just practice! ;)

I think all of pregnancy is just an extended exercise in patience – and it’s hard! It feels like time has slowed down since I became pregnant, and I’m not even as far along as you are. Hang in there – the finish line is in sight!

I was a week overdue with my little girl, and I was going nuts with impatience! Today she’s six months old, and it seems like it was forever ago I was pregnant. He’ll be here before you know it. In the meantime, try to sleep and relax :)
