Still here. Still pregnant. How in the world is that possible? This pregnancy I have been crazy-worried about preterm labor. I don’t really know why, except that I know several ladies who did in fact go into preterm labor, plus I’ve had about a gazillion contractions the entire pregnancy. Still, it makes me feel silly to realize how much I worried over something that never came to pass. Must work on that. I’m sure there’s a lesson for me there.
A friend told me that perhaps I haven’t had my baby yet because God is trying to teach me patience. ME?! Why on earth would I, of all people, need to learn PATIENCE?
Okay fine, maybe I could use a little refresher course, but… God? Got it. Patience. Will definitely work on it. So could you please get things movin’ now?
Shoot. I’m not helping matters, am I? ;)
At any rate, I have been pre-laboring for days, maybe a week, so I fully intend on having this baby soon. Like, today. If she’ll cooperate, that is. ;) I’ve been dreaming about her, and to wake up and realize she’s still tucked up inside makes my arms ache to hold her.
I’ve loaded Andy’s iPod with labor tunes- this time around I opted for songs from L’Anguelus, Scripture Lullabies, and a wee bit of Celtic Woman. It’s a rather beautiful collection of music, if I do say so myself.
(Remember this little peanut? Yup- she’s a cutie. We met her family at the park the other day. The ice flats were definitely a hit- the kids loved to pretend they were ice skating. It wasn’t deep ice, I promise.)
Have you seen Ginny’s Hey Girl blog post? Oh my heck, I can’t stop laughing over the submissions- #3 is especially funny. :) I totally want to play along- we’ll see if I can rustle up the energy to put something together.

Okay, I think that’s all I have to say. I just wanted to check in and let you all know that we’re still waiting. That way I could garner sympathy and such- you know how I am. ;)
