Any day now...

Well, I took the plunge and got the mommy do yesterday.  Well, a mommy do for me anyway, someone who almost NEVER even thinks about short hair.  But when I got it cut up to my chin in a bob...well, one thing led to another and now it's stacked in the back, less than half an inch in some places.  I took a picture of Maxie from General Hospital to my stylist, so if you watch the show, you know how it's cut now.  It's an adjustment, but I do think I prefer the bob better, although Hubby even said he could live with it the way it is...which is DEFINITELY saying something!

Went to the doc yesterday, too.  I'm *supposedly* 70% effaced and 2 cm dilated.  Delivery is definitely imminent, sooner than I would like actually.  It's funny how you can spend 9 months unable to wait for the kid to pop out and when you're so close you think, I can handle this for another week or two.  You think of a blue zillion things to do, people you need to have over, places you need to go, things you need to buy, etc.

I guess I just feel bad for Punky and Chicken.  Punky knows we're about to have a baby, but I don't think she comprehends it's STAYING.  She LOVES babies.  Maybe she'll surprise me and not go through a jealous phase, but I figure since she's older than the 13 months she was when Chicken was born, we're going to have a few problems.  Chicken I just have a feeling isn't going to do well at all.  He's an independent kid and doesn't rely on me much.  He's gotten very loving lately, giving kisses and hugs out of the blue, which just melts my heart.  I hope none of this effects him in a negative way, but he has a tendency to be clingy in spite of his independence.  In the beginning, I know it's just a sleeping baby, so I'm hoping I can really give them attention in between feeds and diaper changes in my very tired state of delirium.  So hubby, if you're reading this, the house may have to take a back seat for awhile.  Don't expect it to be like it's been while I've been nesting lately!

So everyone, please say a prayer for me for a short labor, healthy and safe delivery and a baby who sleeps through the night VERY early!  ;oD

We're praying for you guys! We'll be up for a visit in August so maybe we can see the new little one while we're up, even if it is only for a few minutes. =-)
