The Waiting…

Filed under: Week Six — cabenelson @ 9:03 pm

For the last 41 weeks we’ve been anticipating the arrival of our first baby. We’ve spent the entire time getting everything ready to have this little guy enter our lives. One of the biggest things I’ve noticed is how close Kim and I have come over the last year. I have always loved my wife and I’ve seen such a strength within her over the past 9 months. As of today, Kim is 8 days overdue and we are going to the hospital tomorrow to have her induced. I am so incredibly excited to hold my little boy. You better believe I’ll be posting pictures soon as I’m sure the pictures of him will succeed any of my favorite photographs! I am most impressed with my wife and her strength. And to show my appreciation I’m going to post some goofy pictures of her (with somewhat of her permission) You know I love you honey…

Kimba Grr

Kimba duh
She made this face on purpose, I was laughing so hard I kept making the picture blurry. I finally had to use the flash to get the image.

Kimba Eye
Kimba’s “crazy eye” She has one eye that is kind of weak. This is what happens when I tell her to go cross-eyed. The weak eye tries to go cross-eyed then just falls back into place. It makes me crack up every time she does it.

We’ve been waiting for this little guy for what seems like forever, I’m grateful it’s finally here. I love you Kimba and I’m excited to bring this little guy home.

  2. Oh My Gosh! Congratulations! I’ve just said a little prayer for your little man coming into this world.

    I remember when we had our first and now we have three. I’ll never forget it.

    Your little family has begun. It’s an amazing process.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Remember I practice peds in my spare time! 🙂

  4. Oh, Cabies. I got a little teary there for a minute. I LOVE that last pic of Kim. Mostly because she ACTUALLY looks really pregnant in it. She looks super little in the ones she puts on her blog.
    Anyway, I am so excited for you both, and am so so so sad to not be there with you during this amazing time. Love you, buddy. Ok, now I’m really crying.

    I feel for your wife, getting to 8 days overdue! No fun…. But she seems in good spirits anyhow!

    Best of luck today, and can’t wait to see your pics of your new little man 😀
