Week 31

It has been a few weeks since we posted last. The time is flying by and we can't believe that our little girl will be here in about 61 days (or less!).

We have been busy getting the nursery ready and gathering all the stuff we need. It's amazing just how much stuff one little human being needs! That said, it's been really fun getting ready for Coco and it has been a real learning experience for us.

Kira is doing well...she has had a bad cold and an ear infection since last Saturday but other than that she's good. Coco is busy moving around though just about now, the space inside is probably staring to get a little cramped for her so she'll probably be sleeping more and moving less over the next few weeks. Apparently, she is about 3 1/2 lbs now and about 18 - 19 inches long....amazing! Over the next few weeks she won't get much longer BUT her weight will most likely double! Yikes, hang in there Kira!

We are doing good too. We are very excited and ready to meet our little girl. I (Victor) have been having a lot of trouble sleeping because I'm nervous/anxious and Chris (of course) is cool as a cucumber. I'm not nervous/anxious in a bad way. I'm just excited and curious and wake up thinking about things like: what will life with Coco will be like; what she will look like; wondering whether she'll like us (LOL!); will she be a good sleeper; will she and NeNe get along; etc.! I know I'll have the answer to all these questions soon and am just allowing myself to enjoy the excitement and nervousness. It's natural and although my hubby is very calm (on the outside), I know he's a little nervous too!!!

We also found a house to rent while we're in LA. It took a while but we did find a great place in West Hollywood and will be heading out to LA on January 4th to start the final wait for the big day. We plan to spend time with Kira and help her as much as possible over the last few weeks.

That's all for now. We will be updating you all every week through the big day so stay tuned and continue to keep us all in your thoughts and prayers.

hey guys,this is all very exciting. The nerves are very natural, and the sleepless nights are gods way of preparing you for mid-night feedings!!! Wishing you both a very blessed Christmas and Happy and Healthy New Year. All the best in 2010
