We’ve only got a few weeks left as a family of three. This seems to be taking a long time to me; I’m sure Brett feels similarly. Hannah probably thinks this whole thing is weird because we’ve been talking about it for as long as she can remember but there is still no baby.
I thought a visual countdown might help us stay motivated. Time to make a chain. This was a great way to use up some scrapbook paper scraps that had been lying around a while. It even turned into a mommy-daughter project when I realized the cool paper cutter thing I have is fairly child safe.
I made enough rings to go through 42 weeks. So I know the length of the chain is the maximum number of days left. We’ll have a baby before we use up the chain, whew.
Every morning at breakfast, Hannah takes off a ring. The chain is already shorter than when I took that picture, wow!
