Not Quite Yet

I'm still here, baby still in the belly, and still going through my day like normal. We've been giving the baby pep talks every day telling her that it's okay to come out now, but all to no avail. Aaron literally jumped up and down this morning because he's so excited that she'll be here at any time. He spent the weekend rubbing and talking to my belly, which was absolutely adorable.

We did a lot this weekend, but none of it really baby related because we've been completely ready on that front for more than a week now. Maybe I should have left everything undone, and then of course she'd come when we were not ready for her yet.

I had the afternoon off last Friday and I spent it doing absolutely nothing, which was absolutely wonderful. I played gin online, watched bad television, and even snuck in a short nap. Saturday was Aaron's birthday and we continued our annual tradition of going out for a meal that absolutely sucked. You'd think we'd learn and go somewhere we know is good, although even when we've tried that the service has been horrible to make up for it. This time both the service and the food were ridiculously bad. I think next year we'll be staying in. The last time we did that (6 whole years ago!) it was great and everybody had a lot of fun. Apparently we're just slow learners.

Mothers Day was nice, and Aaron surprised me with a box of really nice chocolate, and then even agreed to pizza for dinner last night. I think that was mostly because he had spent the day doing dishes (we fixed brunch for my visiting parents and sister), and he didn't want to do any more.

Life has been wonderfully blissful for the past few weeks. We're both so happy and so ready for our daughter to make her way into the world. I thought I'd be beyond nervous at this point about giving birth, but I'm really not. I'm just ready.
