Waiting for Papa

I am 39 weeks, 5 days pregnant and still no baby. There was a false alarm yesterday and I went to the hospital. The doctor and nurse told me they don't remember ever having a woman as far along as I am want to leave the hospital without a baby. They would have kept me if I wanted and induced me, but the baby and I are bound and determined to wait for Papa to get home. Travis is coming home a day and a half early and will be here Friday afternoon. (My due date) !!!!! I am hoping and praying he can be here for the birth. If not, at least it won't be long before he meets her.

Training is going well for Trav. He is learning a lot and making the most of the down time he has. He has even begun drawing again and painting some (watercolors for now) which is awesome. He hasn't had much time for that the last couple years! In a couple days he will be halfway through the program. Woo hoo! His "graduation" date is March 27th so the end is in sight.

My family and friends have been taking great care of us in his absence. I do not know what I would do without my parents and my sister here. I can't thank them enough for all their help!

I had a doctor appt. on Monday and the baby has dropped since them. I'm dilated to four (again, too much info?) and have been up at night with contractions. The girls are getting excited and loving all the cuddle time we've had reading books on the couch. I am really slowing down is just getting harder to do normal things with this giant belly in the way. ;)

We are excited to meet the baby and can't wait for her to join our family. Now if only Travis would get home so I can have this kid!

Thanks again for all of your prayers and support.
