Week 33 on Monday

It's hard to believe but Coco is due in 51 days! In some ways it seems like it has taken forever to get to this point and in other ways it seems like it was only yesterday when Chris and I started planning our family. We are thrilled to be where we are and are looking forward to meeting our daughter soon!

Kira and Coco are both doing great. Kira had her 32-week check-up yesterday (Friday, December 18th) and both she and Coco are excellent. At the last appt. (at 30-weeks), Coco was still in a breech position (meaning head up, not down as is preferred for birth). That is not that unusual but we were all praying that she would turn soon because if she stayed in a breech position we would most likely have to have a c-section delivery. (Usually babies turn into the heads down position sometime around 30 weeks.) We were thrilled to find out yesterday that Coco has turned and is now in the head down position! Yippee! Also, at the last appt. Coco was a bit camera shy so we didn't get a lot of good shots but yesterday she was camera ready and we got some incredible pictures of her adorable face. I know, we're probably biased but she is gorgeous! Take a look for yourself!

This week we will celebrate Christmas with our family and on Sunday (12/27), Jen (Chris' cousin) is hosting a (2nd) baby shower for us. This will be a very special week for us and we can't wait to share it with our family and friends.

Our next apt. is on December 31st and then we head out to LA on January 4th. Time is flying by but we are ready and super-excited!

Stay tuned and keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
