Save the Date

We just found out that our baby will show up no later than April 25th. Benjamin's birth was enough to scare everyone silly, so we're planning on a c-section unless Baby Sam just makes up his mind to come before that. In the meantime, I'll be having 2 ultrasounds a week to keep an eye on how he's doing. I can tell that he's still having a great time rolling around, kicking, punching and having a great time with that trampoline bladder.

I'm at the end of this project, and buying clothes seems so futile, yet so necessary for the sanity. Instead of hitting the maternity stores, I've just been shopping the sales at Lane Bryant. I think the clothes are cuter, and help you maintain your I.Q. It's hard to be taken seriously in a maternity top.

There's still the "official" car check for the baby carrier yet to do, and a few other things that I'd like to have done, or at least out of the way, but mostly I'd like to get my hands on this little one and see what he looks like. They say it all comes back to you pretty quick, so I'm banking on that, and sleeping as much as possible in the meantime!

OK....now WHY did I learn this on your blog instead of straight from your mouth? How exciting!!!!! WOO HOO! I don't know about you.....but I'm giddy. I can't WAIT to meet baby Sam. And, by the way, I SO love his name. Samuel was on our boy list at one point or another too. Yes, everything comes back to you, minus any hysteria. I'm impressed your are getting your car seat installation checked with baby #3! We figured we were doing good if we even remembered to PUT him in the car! What a great month to have a baby! For us (Nielsen's, Chesser's and close friends) this makes April birthday #10!!

That is so exciting about little Sam. I will put it on my calendar. I can't wait to see him :) Next time you come to town I would love to see you!

Thanks Lisa & Faye! It's so nice to have your support - it's like someone being really excited that it's your birthday or something. :D

I love you as my own sister, and love your children as if they were mine....so OF COURSE I'm excited for you!! Even though you told me he already has Matthew's profile, I'm still going to make a prediction that Baby Sam looks like you with blonde hair. My baby #3 looks like me, and Melanie's baby #3 looks like her....so maybe it's a trend?!

HOORAY! If he's anything like Paisley (April 24th) he'll be mild tempered and snuggly. I SO feel for you right now, though! The last weeks are agony, so it must feel good to have some light at the end of the tunnel. Are you "nesting"? Can't wait to see you big sister!

Kinda wondering if I have forgotten how to do it too...and I am a couple more years removed from it that you are!!! Ugh...it will be about 4.5 years since we have had a newborn! YOU are so on top of things...I don't even have my new infant car seat purchased yet let alone ready to inspect!
