Baby Day!

Tomorrow morning is the big day! Despite our attempts, I did not go into labor this weekend. So we go with the induction tomorrow bright and early. I'm hoping that the baby will be here before lunchtime.

I am a tiny bit nervous, but mostly just excited at this point. I'm still supposed to be taking it easy, but it's been hard to do that today. Just knowing he'll be here tomorrow anyway has me finishing up stuff around here. To be honest I haven't had much to do.

My bag is packed and ready to go. I will add my toiletries when I finish getting ready in the morning and we'll be off. My mom is on her way here. She's staying the night, so she can get Zachariah onto the bus in the morning. We'll be leaving too early to see him. Then she (or someone) will go get him after school and bring him to the hospital.

I have to say that the one thing (other than meeting the baby) that I'm looking most forward to is introducing him to his big brother. Zachariah has been so excited this whole pregnancy. It was nice to spend his last day as an only child with him at home (snow day) today. He really doesn't know what's coming, but he's thrilled about having a new baby. I know he'll be a great big brother, and it will be fun to watch the interaction.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. I appreciate them as I go in the morning too. I will be updating here when I can, but I'll be able to post on Twitter and/or text some of you pretty quickly after he comes.

Oh thinking of you! I've been so absent from the blogosphere that this really caught me by surprise. I feel like I just found out you were expecting. Can't wait to hear about your new arrival.
