Baby’s Hangin’ In There

December 4th, 2005 · 27 Comments · Me

He’s still all snug in my belly and, personally, I don’t expect him until around the 14th or so. Partly because that’s what the initial sonogram predicted (although they wouldn’t change the official due date from the one calculated by the calendar) and partly because I think I just know better. ;-) I’ll be sure to post as soon as I can when the big event happens!

Thank you all for your kind comments and interest in me and the baby. I feel so loved! But, both in person and online, I can sometimes be terrible about keeping in touch. *hangs head in shame* I’m sad for not yet having responded to each of you individually. Last-minute baby preparations are keeping me much too busy!

My husband was very sweet and patient this morning. I’d requested a photo shoot; some pictures of us (for our Christmas card) and some of myself (for posterity). Wouldn’t you know it turned out to be the windiest day ever? A bit on the cloudy side, too, but we did it anyway. (Who knows when the little guy will decide to pop out, ya know?) We went downtown for the scenery. It was insanely windy near the water but I was happy with the results anyway.

Really, I could use another month or so to prepare, but it’s not up to me now. I guess he’ll be here when he’s ready!

    The 13th would be a great day, if the baby would be so kind as to take suggestions. Yeah, I know, he should listen to you guys first but who can blame me for putting in for my favorite day. ;) I hope everything is going well, I’m thinking of you all every day.
