So Excited

Well the time has finally come. We are in January and I know for a fact! that this baby will be coming this month. Unfortunately, so does Andrew and he is having a really hard time with the fact that we don't know exactly what day "New Baby" (man, I will be glad when we have a name for this kid!) is going to come. I hate to make a whole bunch of preparations with packing bags and stuff but it needs to be done and I know as soon as labor starts I will not feel up to it. So, I am planning on packing the kids bag today and getting mine as ready as I can. Andrew knows we are doing this project and now he is sure the kid is coming today. When I told him I didn't think that she was he burst into tears. sigh.... Sometimes it is really hard to be four. What is even worse is that I totally understand his point of view. I also have a burning need to know exactly what is going to happen on what day. I find great comfort in it and feel all out of sorts when I have no plan. I guess my little man is like me in that way. So, wish us luck in the next few days because I have a feeling that Andrew is going to be all hyped up until this baby comes. Now Zane, he could care less. He talks a little bit about the baby but mostly in reference to my belly. Who knows how he is going to react when there really is a baby sitting in front of him. At least the concept of time isn't an issue yet. For him it will just happen when it happens and that is ok for him. Very like his dad that way. Eric is so easy going about timeline stuff when it is unknown that it drives me crazy! However, the reverse is true when the timeline is known. Then he morphs into this whole other person (aka Anal Andy) who is a stickler for the minute by minute schedule. How these two people co-exist in the same man is beyond me. Any advice for distraction for my boy would help! Also, is any of you have a guess for birth date or weight (BE NICE!!!) I would love to hear it!

FYI- I changed some settings on my comment posting so now anyone should be able to post a comment. I didn't realize until yesterday that only blogger users could so now that should be fixed. Give it a shot! It is kinda fun!

I am glad that you are getting close! Poor Andrew having to wait so long. Kenzie was four when we had Levi and I think she thought I had been pregnant forever! She didn't really believe the baby was coming when it finally was time.
Okay, here are my guesses:
Birthdate of 1/7/08 (AM)
Weight 8lb. 10 oz
Length 20 1/2 inches
Wishing you a smooth delivery! Can't wait to hear the good news. Levi (#3) was my fastest delivery, about 1 1/2 hours after water breaking at home. Good luck!
