Waiting Game

So here we are. Waiting.

I'm at home, taking turns relaxing and walking walking walking. Sam, being the awesome husband, going to work and texting me from time to time to make sure every thing's okay.

The midwife guessed early this week last Friday. I was excited, I've thought for sure she'd come late this week - from the beginning I assumed she'd be prompt. And now that it's already Tuesday, I'll admit I'm a little disappointed not to have met her yet. Of course that's now, 8:30am. Ask me again in thirty minutes and I'll be terrified of what's to come - then thirty minutes later I'll be sad at the thought of her not being such a part of me soon.

I know I'll miss her. And yet, I cannot wait to hold her.

Everyone wants to meet her, everyone is so excited for us. Our friends here in the city have been so loving - all of them over the last few days have asked us how we are and offered to help in any way they can. (Not to mention stop by to meet her as soon as possible, of course.) Sam and I talked last night about how blessed Samaire is to have such a wonderful New York City family. How blessed we are. We have stumbled into some of the most wonderful people, and they have welcomed us into their lives in the most awesome ways.

Sometimes words fail me when I try to describe it all.

I have a million photos to download for you all - I should go do that now. And then it's off to Central Park, to try to convince this crazy little girl Central Park would be ever so much MORE fun if she were out here with me . . .

This kid's a bum!!!!! Actually, my new theory is she loves movies, and knows once she's here that it'll be a while till she hits one up. I mean, she's seen gems, GEMS! in the last week+. She gets candy and comedy and cool air, she's living a charmed life in there.

Mix two tablespoons of castor oil into a shake! It worked to get Maggie out! If it doesn't work then you just get diarrhea....but it's is worth the shot. Good luck, can't wait to here about her arrival.

Love you!

I can't stop checking your blog for more updates. I'm addicted, and ok, I want ONE of us to have a baby soon.

And don't worry, even though she won't be in your belly anymore, she'll still be an amazing part of you. You have no idea what it's like to live with your heart and soul outside of your body until you're watching her grow up.

You are so calm and zen. Ryan was a week and two days late, and I was a cranky, cranky, CRANKY uncomfortable pregnant woman.

However, he told me today that he and I would always be best friends, so I forgive him for being a little late. :)
