A Due Date to Celebrate

This is a first, not that I am passing a due date, that is the standard procedure for me. We did actually have a busy day and ended with a date.

I started out the day with a nice breakfast with the family, then went to a friend's baby shower, I guess this kid didn't want me to miss the celebration of his friend! Then we went to Costco as a family. Came home, and I cooked the kids dinner. Then Mom J. came over and watched the kids so Jeremy and I could go out on a final date before this little boy joins our family outside the womb. We went to Guadalajara Grill. I was tempted to drink the spicy salsa to see if it would help with labor. I figured it would be inappropriate. The we went to see the movie Yes Man with Jim Carrey. It was good but had a couple parts (one mostly) that grossed me out enough to worry about the rest of the film. I wouldn't recommend it. It was a first that we went out on a date when I was 40 weeks pregnant. Yeah!

Monday we have a doctor's appointment and then hopefully I will have an ending date. Or at least some more hope that this will not be a 41+ week pregnancy. Here are a couple of pictures that I took in honor of the day.
I think the kids are excited, Haylie told me that Jackson was taking a bath. He wants to look his best when they meet him.
And Daddy can't wait to meet his second son. I think Jackson was telling him he felt the same way.

You look beautiful for being 40 weeks. I like what you did to your hair. Is it frosted or is that just the picture.

Call me tomorrow after your appointment.
Love you Mom

That is something to celebrate! I hope Jackson makes his appearance soon -- I can't wait to see him.
