October 19th, 2014...a day I have been looking forward to for 9 months now. The last few mornings I've woken up wondering is today the day?! Well it is 7:00 pm and nothing has happened...yet. I'm still hopeful he will come today, but I'm sure the statistics of babies being born on their actual due dates is pretty small. Either way I can't wait to meet my guy. He did let us get through a wedding, Drew's entire football season, conferences at school and another busy weekend of work for me, so he's been a thoughtful little guy so far.
But now that my work day is over, that my coworkers and volunteers have laid hands on me and prayed, that I've taken a nice long walk, that the car seat is installed and our hospital bags are loaded in the car, that I've eaten Bang Bang shrimp and had a foot massage targeting my pressure points I think it's time to come. So Aiden, please don't make me wait another week...your Dad and I would really like to meet you tonight. Can you please make that happen?
