Bonus Day 2 - Monday, October 1, 2012
OCTOBER! HAPPY DANCE! HAPPY, HAPPY DANCE!
Ok, not only is it October, but it's currently 10:16 on October 1st. Hello, 10.16! The best! But I'll let your bday be a tie since there's no way you're coming on my bday, k? :)
Secondly, I really wish the plus sign and the 2 were next to one another in the pic, but I would have had to manually do a screen shot and then move stuff around and that's just way too much work, especially since if you're not here tomorrow I'd have to do it again tomorrow.
So, then, today. I barely slept last night and had just about the worst morning ever. Poor Rog is not himself, and cried all day and was super clingy...to Daddy and pushed me away which was a bummer. But he woke up mega early and was crazy upset at each nap but then slept two long naps and blech! Just a rough day with our beloved boy. But also I got a good, long afternoon nap, lots of afternoon rest, and, praise Jesus, our sweet, beloved friends the Carlsons brought Jimmy John's (my FAVE!) for dinner. Oh, yum. I totally intend for you and their daughter Lila to be BFFs someday, beeteedubs.
So, labor wise, I really think we're close. Definitely have been losing lots of mucus plug (don't look it up if you don't know what it is, outside world! It's gross but it's part of the process!) and the cramps were the worst they've ever been. At lunch I actually had three real contractions in about 20 minutes and thought we might be able to start timing those biddies but then by the time I was done eating they stopped. Meh, blurg.
BUT the mega grouchiness has lifted and guess what? Sometime between last night and tonight the desire to meet you, the ache to have you in my arms, has set in. I don't have that, "GET THIS BABY OUT!" feeling, but I do have the, "Oh, girl, I wanna meet you and know you," pining. So that's happy :)
So yes...sure do feel free to come tomorrow! Please know that your entrance will be perfect whenever it is. I mean, I really wanted Rog to be born on 3.7.11 but I now think 3.11.11 is the most wonderfully perfect birthday for him :) I'd LOVE for you to come tomorrow, 10.2.12 (still sounds amazing!) but if it's the 3rd or 4th or 5th or 6th or 7th (can't see it going much past that!) then I'll think it's the perfect day for my darling Juliet Elise to leave my womb and enter my arms and somehow take up even more real estate in my heart!
What's This About?
If you weren't around for it, when I was pregnant with Roger I did a blog series when I reached 100 days remaining until his due date; I knew then and know that September 29, 2012 is really just a placeholder that means very little, but it was fun to count down with Roger. I decided that I'ma try to do it again with Juliet. Now that I have a lovely 15 month old keeping me on my toes I might not be able to hit every single day the way I did with Roger but I still plan to give it my best!
So here we go! The lowdown: I'll keep one post per "decade" of days, updating with the current day at the top each day. Day 10 plus any bonus days will get their own posts until the day our beloved Juliet Elise arrives! And, as with Roger, they'll be addressed to her personally.
