You don’t know it, but you were supposed to enter the world on the 23rd of September, 2011. It is now four days later, September 27th, 2011 and your mom and I keep joking that even through the eviction notice has been given, the water is leaking a bit, you still have your feet on the couch (your mom’s bladder). In the coming days, things will get more obvious and hopefully you will give it up. I can promise you that you will have much better digs out here, in the real world– and all the free milk you can possibly suckle, poop and puke. Not to mention other things like lots of warm blankets, meeting both sides of your grandparents and a really beautiful doggie– not to mention a very, very impatient Mummie and Daddy.
Tom Petty is right, the waiting is the hardest part.
We have been hanging out, waiting, for the last couple of weeks– because all of the babies that have been born in recent time, you seem to be the only one who not only loves his apartment, but is also taking such good care of it as well! You still have plenty of fluid and placenta, so all seems to be working well. I do seem to think that you have been staying inside because you know that Daddy needed to get to a good place with a couple of his projects that he needed to get to a good place so he could focus on spending as much time with you as possible– but the other side of me thinks, as your Uncle Fargo called you– the Reggie Jackson baby… The October surprise…
But you still have several days to come and we have yet another doctor’s appointment in the afternoon and he is going to try to make Mommy a little flexable and make the apartment floor a little thinner. We are knocking, but you ain’t answering. Oma and Opa will be here on Thursday, which will be very exciting, but they are only here for a very short time, 2.5 weeks, so you have some time to enjoy, but soon we will all be here, waiting, trying to do other things when really all we want to do is watch you grow into the person we have been waiting so long to see.
So sleep well in your little apartment, sweet prince and come out when you are ready. If not, were going to get the super in October and come in and get you. Try not to be too pissed, but we can’t wait much longer. 🙂
