measuring up, ripening up


Three days 'til the due date.
Of course, I know those things vary and I shouldn't get to stuck on it-
Had lots of random contractions yesterday and the doctor said I am starting to dilate- so baby is on it's way. Just a matter of patience now.

Family has bets going on sex, weight and length---
The biggest guess coming in at 8lbs 2oz and the smallest tipping the scales at 6lbs 2oz
What do you all think??

Other things are beginning to ripen up around here too-
searching for cuces
We have over a dozen cucumbers in the fridge and more on the vine just waiting to get a little bigger.
And there are a ton of these that are surely going to turn red in the next week or so (I hope!)

patience is the key word around here this week!


  1. every time i see a post from you in my reader i get so excited because i think it might have happened. best wishes and big hugs for the big day, any day now! 8lbs sounds about right to me.

  2. i remember how every one would say "oh yes, you must be having (insert girl or boy here) because you carrying (high or low)". that being said...boy! that's just what hit me off the top of my head.

    hope you are meeting that little one soon...:)

  3. lurve the photo.
    good luck on the patience!

    just think.
    you are going to meet your baby soon.

    you are going to meet your baby soon!


  4. I send you so much, love, patience, and strength I think I might burst trying to project it so far. I'll be thinking of you this weekend.
