So we're now down to only 6 weeks before the anticipated arrival of little Landry! I can't believe it is getting so close, or how fast the time has flown. I can't wait to finally see the face of this little person who has been squirming around inside me for the past 34 weeks! I think she must be running out of room in there though, because lately her squirmings have become much more uncomfortable for me, and they make my belly look like it has been inhabited by aliens. It's fun though, and I think I will miss the feeling. What I don't think I will miss is the ridiculous amount of effort it takes to change positions, not to mention get up off the couch or out of bed! Also, the giant cankles. I'll be happy to see them go too.

So my birthday is in 2 days. I will be 26. Old. Ok, maybe not old, but definitely the oldest I've ever been. It's funny though. Usually I get so excited about my birthday, and count down the days starting weeks in advance like a little kid or something. This year it has kind of snuck up on me. I guess you could say I've had other thoughts occupying my mind this year. Someone else's upcoming birthday is now much more exciting than my own, and I have a feeling that's the way it will be from now on. My little world is about to undergo a major shift in focus. Exciting times are ahead!

Christmas has also snuck up on me this year. Only 6 more days! How crazy is that? And, how impressive is it that I did almost all of my Christmas shopping in 2 days? I still have a couple more things to go get, which I may do later today if I can ever talk myself into getting up and taking a shower. Pajamas are just so comfy!
