Down to FIVE...Waiting for Ryleigh to Arrive

I can't believe 35 weeks have passed, my how it goes by so fast!

Here we go! Weekly visits, Packing THE bag, loading the carseat and waiting...and waiting...

How to tell a pregnant lady is "READY..."
She shows up to work in a Old Navy sweat suit.
She is out of breath from walking to the water cooler.
You start seeing less and less of her around.
She rotates through the last remaining 3 outfits and 2 pairs of shoes that fit.
The cute waddle becomes more like a painful, slow and unsteady attempt at walking for fear that the baby may fall out any minute.
The glow on her face turns into puffy eyes and swollen cheeks.
The potty breaks become more frequent with less accomplished each time.

This week we have the breast feeding class, CPR classes,a friend in town from Texas and the annual tree decorating at Mom & Dads! Hopefully pretty uneventful.

Ryleigh Kate Watkins 1.16.09 8lbs. 9oz. & 20 inches of pure joy!
