It's Almost Time!


I thought I would post about my pregnancy one last time before our little baby girl comes. I can't believe that it is less then 2 weeks away! I am SO excited to have another little girl, and to see what her personality brings to our family. I have been busy this week getting all of Madi's old newborn clothes out of the attic and washing all the burp rags and things in the baby laundry soap. It has been fun looking at all of the newborn stuff. It brings back lots of good memories. Yesterday I spent just about 2 hours on the computer looking at old pictures and videos of Madi as a newborn. Our computer has been broken forever and thanks to Levi, (our good friend) it is working again so I was able to see all of our old pictures. Needless to say, it is all I can do to not think about having this baby.
I am so happy to say that we have come to an agreement on what her name will be. After months and months of switching back and forth. We have decided to name her Mya July Russell. Madi calls her "baby July" and Seth calls her Mya when he is talking to me and July when he is talking to Madi. So, I am curious to see which one sticks when she finally gets here.
I also just wanted to say how much I LOVE being pregnant. Even though it is hard to sleep at night towards the end, there is nothing like feeling your baby move inside of your tummy. I am always putting my hands on my stomach when she is rolling around because I can't get enough of it. It is the strangest feeling. Sure, I could do without her punching me in the bladder, the constant pain in my pelvis, and the crazy leg cramps that about take me to the ground. But other then that, I am very blessed with easy pregnancies. I have even been able to workout during this whole pregnancy, which was a goal of mine this time. I don't even get winded walking up the stairs in my house, which was my work out at the end of my last pregnancy.
Well, I guess keep watching for the big day, I will definitely post some pictures up when she comes. Hopefully she won't decide to wait until 10 days after her due date like Madi!

Ah!!! I am so so so excited for you guys! I can't wait to meet her. You look awesome, by the way! I feel like your pregnancy has gone by SO fast! (I'm sure you don't feel that way... but I do!) And I love her name. It's so pretty! And I love how you spell Mya. Ah I just can't wait! You'll have to let us know after she arrives if we should call her Mya or July. Either way, they're both adorable!

We can't wait for Mya July to make her big appearance! It seems like we've been waiting for this for a long time (since 4th of July!).

You look great Brit! I hope she comes on time for you. I am the same way, I LOVED being pregnant. I was lucky with an easy pregnancy. I have no idea if it will be like that next time around but I sure hope so! I can't wait to see pictures of baby Mya July!

That's wonderful! I love the name and I agree with you, I too enjoy the whole pregnancy thing. And good job at working out! What an example you are, thanks. I forgot you were 10 days past your due date with Madi. Not sure how you felt but I thought I'd be pregnant forever (11 days late with Daniel)!

Britney said...
