Fi’s Strength…

October 23, 2009

I am no longer worried about Fi being anything other than a strong, powerful and spunky little girl. She wants to come into this world now- whether she’s really ready to or not. I went into labor on Wednesday and was in the hospital yesterday as the doctors spent six hours stopping my contractions (which they were able to do successfully!) While the shots and IVs were unpleasant, and bedrest is certainly not fun, I am grateful for this experience because I feel like I really bonded with Fiona through this.

In my mind she is no longer a weak, introverted little girl but instead a total dynamo. I also got to see her on the ultrasound and she is darling! She has the fat cheeks of a cherub and a sweet button nose like Kay. Fi was also pounding her two little fists together and seemed so excited about coming into this world and our family.

I think that the anticipation of this strong little soul is really keeping me together as I spend much of my little Kay’s 2nd birthday away from her and
Patrick is in the office hard at work on a trial. This bedrest thing totally sucks but hopefully it will only be for a week or two. I am just grateful for an incredible mother-in-law who I know is taking amazing care of my Kay Bear.

I am going to be so relieved when this pregnancy is over and our spunky Fi is finally in my arms.
