Only a weekend stands between us and Eric! He's already begun his journey home because he had to go on a business trip within Nigeria before flying out on Monday. It's hard knowing he's one step closer but it's still 3 full days before we get to see him. These past 8 weeks have gone by so fast but I am more anxious for him to get home this time. I just miss him so much and can't wait to see him on Tuesday!! I'm really excited to see Maddie interact with Eric also. She changes so much each time he's gone and this time she started speaking in full sentences and her imagination has just been blossoming. It's one thing for me to tell Eric the things she does or says but it will be so fun to see how he reacts to seeing it in person. He's going to fall in love with her all over again.
Another big deal while Eric's home is our ultrasound scheduled for May 5th. We'll finally know if we're having a boy or a girl. I had a dream last night that the ultrasound revealed another baby girl. In all of my dreams last night it was a girl...she was still unborn, but we were preparing for another girl. It's funny but that dream kind of makes me feel like it's a boy :) When I was pregnant with Maddie I kept having dream after dream that I was having a boy. Even after we had our 20 week ultrasound that showed a baby girl, I continued dreaming it was a boy. Later in the pregnancy we went for a 4D ultrasound and I asked them to verify it was a girl, just in case something was missed earlier! So I think since I dreamed it was a boy and I had a girl, this time I'm dreaming it's a girl so it must be a boy. Thank God we'll find out in 5 days...this gender question is driving me crazy! I don't know how women used to not know until the baby was born. UGH! :) I love modern technology!!
