D + 5...

What can I say - still pregnant! Going to the doc tomorrow, so we'll see what he says! Did go walking around Ikea last night - Ry even made me go at a faster walk - I don't think I've been that fast in weeks.

Today my parents and grandparents are coming. It is also a special day - my parents 36th wedding anniversary! It makes it easy for me and Ry since our parents' anniversaries are both 30 years after ours. My mom is bringing down my grandparents this afternoon and my dad is bringing my brother Stephen (from Chile!) this evening. They don't even get to have dinner together on their anniversary!

This day is also Ry's grandfather's birthday - Happy Birthday Grandpa Mc! What a wonderful man! He's always treated me like one of his own - I've had an old sweater of his, kinda like a Mr. Rogers sweater, that I've kept at work for years. It was a nice way to remember him and all he has done for me and Ry. Looking forward to seeing them in the coming weeks too!

For my "event" for the day, I'm going down to see my friend Lisa in South Austin. She had her 3rd son, Andrew James, on Father's Day. We shared our pregnancies this time, and I'm looking forward to meeting her son. Maybe it will convince little pumpkin it's time to join the rest of us.

Well, last night I did it. I finally told Ry I think I'm ready to have this baby! He said I just look so cute and pregnant! What a nice husband! Well, everyone is on their way here now, and even my sister called to say her big test is over so I can tell pumpkin he/she can come... Everyone is giving little pumpkin advice. If he/she is anything like his momma, he/she's not going to listen...

You've been in my prayers! Have fun with your family today. I'll pray that pumpkin comes whenever he/she is ready and that you have the patience to wait if needed. God Bless!

Maybe pumpkin will come today and share a birthday with John the Baptist too! That would cool. :)

If you're not that late according to your charts, I would think of yourself as not being that late at all. Maybe baby just isn't done cookin'!!

Prayers!!
