21 Sep While we were waiting…
Crusoe was due to join our family around September 6th. We’ve had babies as early as 9 days before their due date and as late as on their due date. But when my friends Bryanne and Alisha went a week over with their 4ths, I had this sneaking suspicion that this was foreshadowing for our 4th. (Turns out, it was.) I believe more now than ever before that bar medical emergencies, God designed our babies to come when they are ready (read: not when I’m ready). I felt so peaceful and so patient…most of the time, just a couple of relapses;)
And decorated our birth “cave.”
And tried out the rock ‘n play
Then three days before his due date,
contractions got close together
for a long time
but without pain.
It was slightly confusing, but
we decided to have Auntie Anna come anyway
just in case.
So we called Anna again and hoped against hope that this was IT.
And it was.
But that is for the next post.
