Four more weeks

So we are down to a month or less. I didn't realize how much I had been relying on this figure until Mama T mentioned that, in the event of complications, it could happen that the medical professionals recommend delivering this week (being the 36th, theoretically safe for birthing). Yikes! Already? It was only, hmm, about 9 months ago when we first found she was pregnant. How did all of this suddenly come speeding to light? But then she got the word that everything seemed alright and the schedule is back on for February 9th. Whew! That was close.

...but really, we can't wait. I know I know, people keep telling me that this is the last time I will get a decent nights sleep. I don't care, I want my baby! Actually, a lot of folks want our baby. And I'll have to hand her over so people can ooh and ahh. And I'll have to stifle cravings to say things like, "hey, you're holding her wrong, give her back, " and "um, I think your perfume is too strong and baby don't like, hand her over" and "quit breathing on her! okay you've had enough..."

I just love holding her now and she isn't even born (I wonder if she'll be mad if she is a he and ends up reading this). I put my head on Mama T's tummy and I can hear her and (I swear) I can her her heartbeat sometimes and then she kicks me in the ear. She's so cute! I think she has daddy's feet. She might be born on the 2nd of February. If so, I hope she doesn't see her shadow because I don't want to have to wait another 6 weeks.

I'm glad Mama T is doing as well as she is. She is so beautiful and I am so proud to have her as my child's mom. If nothing else, as long as Mama T and I are together, our baby will know love....
