One Week Since Due Date

Time keeps on tickin' tickin' tickin' into the future...

Here I am just a few minutes ago, one week overdue. Hopefully this is the last in the baby bump series.

Not much left to do but wait. In mid-February, after getting back from our trip to Florida, we realized that with only 3 months left to go we really should start getting ready for baby. Before then we'd done nothing. Literally nothing. So we made the TO-DO BEFORE MAY 15 list. Which morphed into the TO-DO BEFORE MAY 15 lists. Four of them, to be precise. When I look at what we've accomplished in the past 3 months -- on top of holding down the fort, holding down the careers, holding down the rambunctious twinados, and holding down Baby Sister... well, honestly, it amazes even me. The crossed off items range from "Set up maternity/paternity leaves" to "Buy new car (that can hold 3 kids)" to "Get crib from attic" to "Plan K & O's 4th BDay Party" to "Buy diapers." There are maybe 4-5 things that haven't been crossed off, but the rest is done.

On a lighter note: Strawberry season is upon us here in Pennsylvania. The strawberries are ripe and ready at all of our local farms. We've been eating them by the quart for the past 5 days. It makes me really happy to think that our girl will be born at the height of strawberry season!

Hmmmm- if you had left some things undone, she may have caught you off guard and made a dramatic entrance. . .

C'mon Strawberry Shrotcake, your brothers and parents are waiting. . .:)

I'm hoping our strawberries will be ready next week. We've had a rainy season :~)

Oh my! Strawberries already? The leaves on our trees are just starting to open. I know you guys are busy but can I come live with you? I make a mean strawberry shake.
