D + 1...

Well, the due date came and went. Had a nice relaxing (albeit lazy) day. Will try to do that again today, but it's harder that it seems... a few episodes of Law & Order, surfing the net, long showers, well I guess I could get used to this!

Thanks for the suggestions yesterday. The 6 hour Pride and Prejudice does sound good - I may venture out to get it today. Otherwise, it may just be a Bridget Jones marathon!

Last night Ry and I had a wonderful dinner at one of our favorite place, the Melting Pot. I'm soo glad I found a guy who loves fondue! I've loved it for years, and it is a great way to have a nice, long, romantic dinner. We were imagining going there once pumpkin arrives, and seating him or her in the booth between us! It was nice to have an evening just to ponder and focus on these past 40 weeks, and on the journey it took us to get here.

So, since y'all have been soo good at commenting, I have another question. Let's have a poll on the gender and birth date of our little pumpkin (I know many of y'all have strong feelings about this). So comment with that info, and the time of birth and weight, if you feel so inclined. I guess I could throw in a nice pic of the baby as a prize :-)

I think you'll have "her" this weekend...maybe morning since you've become such a morning person. If you do have the baby during the weekend. You might look into someone bringing you communion since you won't make it to Mass on Sunday.

June 28th - 12:23 PM - girl. (Actually, I have no idea about the gender, but I at least I have a 50/50 chance on that, whereas the date and time is kind of a losing battle in terms statistics and my odds of being right.)

Girl, born June 23rd in the morning...I agree with
Sharon - there's got to be some reason why you've
suddenly become such a morning person!! Weight - 8
lbs 11 ozs...hmmmm, I think this is right around what
I weighed...hee hee.... Robin

OOh it is so exciting!! I am thinking boy. I pray that the rest of your pregnancy and the birthing and delivery go well. I am going to be keeping an eye out for news!

Ok, so I think it is a boy, that you will have him on the 22nd around 3pm. Good luck!

Chuck & I went to the Melting Pot on Father's Day - our first date without Aurora since she was born!

Okay, my guess is he will be born this Sunday at 5pm.
