...we will definitely have a happy baby! I admit it - I'm hooked on the Cosby Show. Michael and I have really basic cable (meaning 13 channels, half of which are PBS) and a while back I started watching the Cosby Show in the afternoons. I'm telling you, I wish more shows were like this. Not only is it good TV, but I laugh so hard every time I watch it! And if that's the case, baby Mauss sure is getting some happy endorphins from his or her mom!
Speaking of baby Mauss, my due date is Sunday (the 24th) and we are definitely ready to meet this baby! I have been having pretty consistent contractions for a while now, but none that have progressed into all out labor. I had an appointment this morning (everything looks good!) and I go in again on Friday. However, tomorrow is a Full Moon so we'll see if that gets this baby out!
Up until yesterday my pregnancy has flown by. But now that I'm not teaching anymore (weird) I'm trying to fill my days until the "big day." We're getting a little anxious, however I'm trying to keep it in perspective. I did get a wonderful nap in this afternoon and Mike and I are enjoying good time together - it won't be long until it's not just the 2 of us anymore! God knows the timing of our little one's entrance into the world, and we must wait.
Our prayer for the past few weeks has been for a safe and holy delivery. If you could join us on this, it'd be much appreciated! I ask Mary all the time that my experience will be like hers - that I will be able to offer up the pain of labor and also be open to receive the gifts and surprises that birth will bring. I'm excited to give birth at St. Joseph's because it is a Catholic hospital and they always have a nun or priest on duty. A lady from our church was even able to receive Holy Communion when she was in labor! May God provide for us and our family in the same way. =)
Keep us in your prayers!
