Waiting ...

I am still struggling with stories and what to share and what not to share. But today I am feeling compelled to share something. So here I am.

It seems like just yesterday that this journey began and now we are so close. Mom and Dad arrived in the area yesterday. We had a lovely afternoon ... and now we all wait together. Our official due date is Monday the 13th, I have always delivered close to my due date, so we figure any time this precious little girl will be ready to meet her parents.

In the meantime we are keeping busy. Today we are having a salon day, Melissa will be doing all our hair ... cuts and colors (for some)! Anthony, I am sure, will play with the kids (that is what he did yesterday). He has such a soft spot for children and my littles loved his playfulness. It will be so much fun. I am glad they are here and that we are getting these few days to spend together. It brings a connection to my children and to our families. These are precious moments for all of us.

Yesterday we met with our midwife and talked about how things will go ... a plan ... birth plans are hard, I have always had a plan and I am not sure that I have ever followed them completely ... it seems that wee little ones like to write their own plans. But each have been beautiful, as I know this will be.

I do have a wish:

I want this to be as perfect as possible for Melissa and Anthony, as this is their birth. I want it to be all about them and welcoming their child into this world.

Peace, love and kindness,
