Trader Joes Now Delivers?

Apparently there is some confusion as to where the baby will be born. Saint Joe's sounds awfully similar to our favorite local grocery store. Noah is convinced that baby brother will be born at Trader Joe's (hopefully not!) Guess the produce isle is not that dissimilar from the maternity wing...

Here is (hopefully) where baby will be born.

Conversations from tonight about the baby...

Observations & statements about baby...

"Baby is taking a long time."
"Baby not come now - baby come in 2 weeks. Pretty soon, couple more weeks."
"Plan" for when baby cries:
1) "Tell him, it's okay baby"
2) "Give baby his own binky."
3) "Kiss baby."
Noah "plug" head to mom's belly to listen: "Baby not crying right now."

At our appt. yesterday, I was 75% effaced and 2 cm dilated. It is the waiting game...

Our Time Before Baby Time








Connor and I left Noah with Nana and Pa in New York and spent two days in the Maryland mountains - Frostburg, MD. We had the BEST time. It was just like our silly days of dating ... We hiked all over, explored different parts of western maryland, almost encountered two black bears face to face, laughed till we cried and had dessert every night. These will be lasting memories.

I am 38 weeks pregnant!
