These labels are a part of the birth announcements that are ready and waiting to go at a moment’s notice, just like we are. We finished them up last night which capped off a really relaxing and productive weekend. The house is spotless, the bags are packed, and some little projects around the house got finished. It was a nice long weekend to hang out together, just the three of us, and practice a little patience waiting for the fourth. (E’s about out of patience.)
True to its schedule, the baby decided once again to act as if it were coming last night around one, but after some seriously strong contractions, eased up a bit and let us all go back to sleep. We joked that this baby was going to be labored into being one or two hours at a time over the course of a few weeks. I’m for whatever makes it easier in the end, and everything seems to be going well so far. The calls have started picking up in frequency – people checking in to see how things are going – and that’s fine. We’re not overdue yet, just waiting out these last days, excited to see just how this thing is going to go down.
