36 Weeks and 2 Days!
That means 3 weeks and 5 days to go until this baby's due date!!! Dan is taking 8weeks paternity leave!! I can hardly wait. It's barely sinking in and because it is too good to be true I'm trying not to think about it. He will of course be working upstairs most of the time but he'll be here when his ladies (and possibly a little man) need him. I would say he's a brave man!

That's cool that Dan is taking time off. Even if he's going to be working on the house, at least he'll be nearby if you need a hand. Gerald can't take paternity leave anymore since he's self employed...and if he could I would have to "share" my time off and I want my full year.

That's so awesome. Once you have your baby, that means ours will come 2 months after! That is great that Dan is taking time off. Paul is off for 3 weeks or so when I have the baby. But 8 weeks of just having Dan nearby is great! All the best in the last few weeks of your pregnancy. Looking forward to hearing what you have and the name of your little one.

Wow, how nice of Dan to take 2 months off after the baby is born! I think that'll make a HUGE difference in your recovery... he'll be able to take the girls out if you need a nap in the afternoon, you'll be able to go do your grocery shopping without 3 kids, etc. It'll be so nice for you to have him close by! I was only lucky enough to have Tim home for 3 days after each of our babies were born.

That's awesome that Dan is taking paternity leave. Can't wait to seeing your new little bundle and to hear the name (you have great choice in names).

How fun that Dan is taking time off! That is wonderful for you and I am sure that the girls will really enjoy that, even if Daddy is busy working. Hopefully it will allow you time to recover and relax somewhat as well! I can't beleive that you only have just over 3 more weeks to go! That is exciting! I hope that this little one will bring your family lots of love and happiness!
