Today is your due date! Ohhh December 11th, this dangling 24hr block on the calendar that's been marked since early spring. Although I had high hopes of you joining us early or ontime(those BH contractions Ive been having since September had me overly excited for an sneaky pre-40wks arrival), alas you are on your own schedule taking your jolly old time. Waiting patiently - ha! Room is running out in there, but I think you've grown quite comfy in your womb home. A very long walk and calming talk with your Auntie Kristin helped take the edge off today...my anxiety hitting full on these past few days wondering with every pang or midnight startle if it is now "time." Caring friends and family as eager to hear of your arrival as we are are such a double edged sword as I try to remain relaxed these days before you join us. I felt like I've held it together pretty well this entire pregnancy but now, it's time to hole up again (much like in those first trimester days of secrecy), shut off from the world (phone/email powering off, your Dad can keep those who need informed in the loop) and just be. So tonight we are cooking a steak feast and going to simply relax. No errands, no phone calls, no grocery store runs... (every box has been checked off, twice!) And that may be the case for the next few days or week. I can tell already I'm going to want to nest with just the 3 of us for a bit when you first arrive, the thought of it is blissful to my soul right now.
We'll see you soon sweetie:). Hope you're enjoining those Andes candies Xmas cookies as much as I am...sorry for the sugar rush!
