countdown!

I love it when you get to this point, and people ask you … how long until you are due? And you can say: TOMORROW!!!! And they go “OH”… lol,  shocked-ish.  It’s so much better than having to say: “15 weeks” or even “3 weeks”… YAY… I am so ready, so excited! Here’s hoping that there will be an empty bed at the hospital in the morning for me! i need to just straighten a few things up, and fold a load of whites. I am not packed yet, I do have the camera batteries charging! As well as the video ipod… I have a bunch of episodes of LOST that I have been purposely saving for this exact time! I need to relax a bit…spend some time writing in my journal. This is just such an amazing time, an amazing experience. It was funny tonight, we went to our favorite Thai restaurant and the same girl that always waits on us was asking if we wanted to take the left overs home… and I told her no… tomorrow is hospital to have the baby, and she got this really confused look on her face and said, ‘but you just had a baby’!  eric and I started busting up laughing. She explained that she thought I just hadn’t lost the baby weight! (YIKES).
We got a good chuckle anyway.

It seems that Capri is ready for her little brother as well! so funny, quincy was never into baby dolls! She has lots of them, but really never liked to play with them or anything like that. well, Capri is the opposite. She LOVES babies! It’s so funny! So quincy has these 2 little dolls, that are soft-bodies and Capri just loves them. she hauls them all over, kisses them and hugs them.  I am sure that somehow she knows that she will become a big sister soon! It will be really interesting to see how she takes it!
Dolly

Thanks to all the kind words and prayers! I appreciate that so much.
Good night.

    Any news yet?
    I am thinking of you all – wishing you much happiness.

  59. Rebecca Foxworth 8 July, 2007 at 10:07 am

    I wasn’t much into dolls, either, and so when my first (now almost 7) didn’t really get into the doll thing it disappointed her grandma, but I didn’t think much of it. My second girl, though (now 2 1/2) drags dolls around all day, shushes anyone who talks while they are “sleeping”, sings them lullabies, and the whole thing. Funny how different two kids can be, huh?
