40 Weeks

Wednesday, July18th marks 40 weeks! 
The timer has gone off!  Today is your due date!!

I cannot believe today is the day we've been waiting for since February 29 (when we found out you were a girl and they changed our due date from the 12th to the 18th). As we approached today, I was also nervous, anxious, and excited [which all kind of go together in my book].  We kind of like the 18th since our anniversary is on the 18th of March. What if you don't come on your due date? How do we choose a date that is just right for you? Holy cow! You are really going to be coming out of there! Eeeeee!

Big Sister Tobie is ready to meet you!

Baby Center tells us:
It's hard to say for sure how big your baby will be, but the average newborn weighs about 7 1/2 pounds (a small pumpkin) and is about 20 inches long. Her skull bones are not yet fused, which allows them to overlap a bit if it's a snug fit through the birth canal during labor. This so-called "molding" is the reason your baby's noggin may look a little conehead-ish after birth. Rest assured — it's normal and temporary.

Notice anything different??

We had our latest doctor's appointment scheduled for Tuesday, July 17th at 3p.m. At this appointment we were going to see if Miss Kinley had made any progress. If she hadn't, we would choose a date, most likely for the next week, to evict her from her amniotic bubble. However she had plans of her own!

Stay tuned for what really happened on our due date....


  1. Well my dear girl all came out as was planned, doesn't God do miracles (can't find my damn dictionary) any way I can hardly wait for your new blogs. Love the old man

  2. I love that precious baby and I was thinking of you at school yesterday.
