Please excuse me while I state the obvious! It's December 1st!

So, of course, that means the vast majority of us are having our babies THIS month!!!!

:

(momentary panic here as I have a lot to do yet--babe has to stay in until at least Thursday here when I can be considered 37 weeks generally not an issue as I've never actually had one before my Due Date...)

It seems we did, at least as far as I can tell.

Yea! Its December! And my birthday! I guess this means the whole family will have dec birthdays. DD's birthday is next week and DH's birthday is on the 20th. I wonder if this babe will share a birthday with anyone...

Yippie! Hooray! I'm so happy! : How exciting! I'm also checking every morning for new births and possible cute baby pics. I'm really looking forward to having my baby outside so that DH and I can play and love on our little Nugget. Best of luck to us all for happy birth days!

I'm glad it's Decemeber, but I just have to wait until Saturday at the earliest to go into labor. Sunday I'll be 37 weeks, but we have a 3 hour drive to where we will be having the baby. Saturday I'll be going there to stay until after the birth.

Huzzah! 37 weeks today!

(although baby has to stay put until my shower is renovated from 12/8-12/10) Shouldn't be a problem, I don't have a history of going early.

Whoo hooo!!! :


I can't believe December is finally here! I get all teary thinking about it....all these months...since March...so much has gone on in our lives! It has been such a pleasure to share this experience with you all


We hung up our homeschool calendar today and the kids put up the : on our due date and were each taking a guess of which day they thought it would be. Dd, 2.5 said "5"...so she thinks this Friday I said, nope..I have a mama's night out w/ my friends!

I am thrilled...have a bit more to do..but really excited and happy! I can't wait to see the birth announcements come pouring in!

I am sooooooo glad that it is December. :

This will be my 4th baby AND my 4th girl. It's kind of bittersweet because this will be my last baby (mutual decision for us). I want it to be over but at the same time I really want to enjoy every minute of it. I still have a few more things to do but I am so excited that it is December. My girls keep saying that their baby sister is their Christmas present this year. It just doesn't get much better than that.

Not true!!!

Whenever I get this close (only weeks away) I just try to remember how quickly life really does pass. I think of how I'll blink and next thing you know I'll be holding my baby. It goes like that sometimes. LOL.

Of course, here I am trying to remember exactly how intense labor is. The beauty of that natural oxytocin...inhibits our memory receptors LOL.
