39 weeks 3 days

Still waiting!  Tony and I are keeping ourselves busy though.  We are following some advice and taking time to just sort of soak each other up and enjoy those last few moments of being two.  I will admit that it helps. 

Tony is also still working on our house, which is about 40 miles away from where we live now and from where Megan is.  We were told by our AMAZING midwife today that he should be prepared to drop everything.  It seems Megan is expected to go pretty quickly, she did with her daughter. 

Speaking of our midwife… AMY GORDON is AAAAHMAHZING!  I am so glad that Megan wanted to deliver at a free standing birth center instead of the hospital.  The energy at the Birthing Inn in Tacoma is amazing.  The vibe as soon as you walk in is relaxing, supportive, and comfortable.  It has a more relaxed and stress free feel than at a hospital, and the birthing rooms look more like an upscale bed and breakfast then like a delivery room.  Our situation is unique to say the least, and Amy has made all three of us feel comfortable and welcome.  Not only that, but she inspires complete faith and confidence in her ability to take care of Megan and our precious little Zoey (IF SHE EVER GETS HERE).  We HIGHLY recommend her!!!

So our bags have been packed, repacked, and repacked again.  The bottles have been washed and packed, and then re washed and packed.  I have sorted and organized her clothing.  Now, if only that baby would cooperate (LOL).

I know it will be soon, and I know that she already knows her birthday… I just wouldn’t mind if she shared it with me.
