6 days and counting

Wow, we've finally made it to the last week! Can you believe it?! That's not to say she'll actually be here by Sunday, but still...

I still haven't had any contractions at all, even practice ones. I don't get the sense that anything is going to happen imminently, but I have felt a difference in the way she's moved the past few days. I've felt more movement in my lower abdomen, and also towards the inside - the guts side I guess you could say - rather than the skin side. She is quiet for long stretches and then she'll go nuts for a while making my stomach look like a stadium crowd doing "the wave." In fact, she's doing it right now!

Things are going well at the new house. You know if I were taking a class in photo journalism I think I'd be getting an F for my lousy coverage of the whole dramatic unfolding of events. Arwen and Jen have put so much work into the place, and I still haven't managed to snap one lousy photo. Shame on me!

Last night Arwen finished painting the walls of the baby's room and hanging some decorative moulding. Now we just have to caulk and paint the trim and bingo! we're in business. I can't wait to see the crib set up in her new room.

Whew! It took hours just to catch up on the reading! And you're doing great, Heather - so much going on but you're still healthy and sane, or so it seems. Of course, all hell's about to break loose, but don't let that bother you.

We love you both and can't wait to see Roan! John, Pat & EJ
