Hey cutie patootie … it’s almost time for you to make your grand entrance … are you ready? Mommy feels like she’s ready and I think that Daddy is ready too.

Mommy has almost finished the Christmas shopping and it’s been VERY busy for the past few weeks. Thanks for holding out past Thanksgiving … you were officially considered full term as of the Sunday after.

This morning we go see one of Mommy’s doctors and check our progress. I’m hoping he tells us that you are ready to go … are you? Daddy has been predicting for a couple of months that tomorrow (Dec. 10) is when you’ll be making your arrival. You can’t imagine how happy he’ll be if he’s right … a little “i told you so” goes a long way! We’re having some pretty crazy weather here since there is a big winter storm moving through (but there are some old wives tales that state that this kind of weather can put a Mommy into labor). The worst of it is staying to the north of us, but I can already hear the incredibly high winds that were predicted for today picking up, and it rained pretty much all night last night. The temperature is supposed to drop all day today and the high temperature is only going to be in the 20s tomorrow. This is when a warm coat that actually fits me would come in handy.

You’re movements have been understandably fewer over the past week (I know, I know, you’re out of room – so is Mommy), but still plenty strong and you especially like to push a foot (or knee, I’m not sure) out on my right side. At last week’s doctor’s appointment I was told that your head was pretty low and I can certainly feel that as well. We definitely look and feel bigger, so you must be doing your one and only job of growing. You make your Mommy so proud already!

OK sweetie, I guess it’s now just up to you to decide when you’re ready. Daddy and I are anxious to meet you as is the rest of the family and I promise you the best is yet to come. You have no idea how much joy and excitement you’ve already brought to our lives and how much we look forward to holding you in our arms. So you just let Mommy know when you’re ready and we’ll see you soon!


By the way, the new plasma tv and sound system – all for you – Daddy figured we better have it ready before Christmas since we’ll be having so many guests (on your account of course – it had nothing to do with wanting a new one).
