I wanted to write a day-before-Peanut-arrives blog post. I wanted to come up with something meaningful and thoughtful, something worthy of the last post before we officially welcome Peanut into our family. Like maybe a letter to Peanut about the excitement I feel in getting to finally meet him/her. Or a special post about what I love so much about Staley and all the reasons I know she is going to be such an incredible big sister. I thought about sharing the feelings I had today as we enjoyed our 'last day' as a family of 3. I could focus my post on Zach and the way he has so lovingly and patiently fulfilled my to-do list so that I could truly feel nested and ready for Peanut. I started to write about the love I have felt today with the text messages and e-mails I received, the people who are already offering to bring food, the prayers and hugs and well-wishes from our church family. But in the end, each blog post I started did not sound right or convey what I wanted to convey. And so, instead, I'm writing a blog post about not really writing a blog post. Because tomorrow's post (or Tuesday's, depending on how things go) will far exceed anything I write today. So stay tuned!!
