I can't help myself

I wanted to post about something else. I really did. I even started it and it was really lame. But I just can't not write about what I think about ALL DAY LONG.

This little person inside me wants to come out now. I know it. BD has been stretching like a maniac. Which means my ribs and pelvis and backbone have been tested for elasticity and been found wanting. I know I want BD to come out. Baby Davy has been Baby Davy too long. Plus, Ben and I extended our GAP preoccupation one step further and found some baby clothes that are ridiculously cute. They need little arms and little legs and a little butt to fill them!

Don't misunderstand me. I'm savoring the quiet moments of late morning with Ben. I'm taking extra long showers on purpose. I am grateful for the (relative) ease with which I can jump (ease) into a car without worrying about a car seat. But I know that just around the corner is a little person that was meant to be in my family. It has a gender and a personality and a sense of humor. I think its time for an official introduction. And it needs to come out so that it can hear about its newest future friend!

So Baby Davy, if you read blogs and if you happen to read mine - know that there is a whole world of people just ecstatic to meet you. Take as long as you need. I know you may need a few more days to get good and ready. You may even need weeks. So grow strong little one. Get your little face all pointed in the right direction. Stretch and wiggle all you need. Throw a few good luck punches at my bladder. And then come on out and meet your mom and dad. We are ready to hold you.

I'm super excited to. Don't worry...it has to be soon now. No getting away from it. You will love being a mommy. Oh...and what you said when I saw you is very correct. Some of your old traditions will go...but they will be replaced with new, equally as special ones. :)There's a picture of us on my blog.
