It's too early to feel like this!!

I was here yesterday starting to type and then deleting, and then trying again.

The thing is, I don't really have anything to say (which, if you were a smart blog reader should be your cue to stop here and check in another day). If we had current pictures loaded, I'd opt out of writing and just post those. But alas.

I've been consumed with grasping at how much and how little time there is until October 26. Just under 5 weeks is a very long time, if I consider the aches and pains and excitement. It's a blink of the eye when I look at the "to-do" lists for both home and office.

Knowing October 26 is just an estimate drives me up the wall. A belly this pregnant should come with an expiration date stamped right on it, you know? Willa was 5 days early. I've gone done the foolish path of expecting to meet the new guy by October 21. Because of his size, and mine, others are saying I won't make it to the due date. They're just enablers at this point. But kind ones.
Because of that, I'll likely be back here mocking myself in early November when the baby still isn't here.
That is not my belly.

shhhh, 5 weeks is not a long time - it's a very short time. :) I hope the next 5 weeks (really 8-9w) fly on by!!

October 18th. That's the day you'll delivery. Which just so happens to be my birthday too. :)

I just realized that you can't really see the date stamped on. That purple text says "Birth by Oct. 26."
The 18th? I could do that...

I found that I was much more miserable late in the game the second time. When you have an energetic little person to chase around, growing yet another little person gets really exhausting really fast.

I vote Oct. 14, which is our wedding anniversary. Your baby can share a birthday with my marriage! Or, not that I would wish it on ANYONE to go late, but Halloween would be cool. I love Halloween.
