• Love waking up on my baby's due date (today) to contractions at 5:23 a.m.
• It's still just early labor, but love that these contractions have continued ever since then at a consistent pace of ten minutes apart (that's nine hours so far) and that it looks like we're headed to the hospital at some point later today/tonight (the nurse just told me to call Grama in for back-up, so that's a good thing to hear!).
• Love that awesome and inspirational CDs full of music for labor and birth arrived in the mail today from Sarah and Chris - just in time for me to upload them to the iPod before we go. THANK YOU!!! Love the adorable pink bib that Chris sent too. Click here for a photo of her "baby" modeling it. I promise a photo of MY baby modeling it soon! THANK YOU AGAIN!!!
• Love that this musically-focused-momma found perfect music on the car radio today for the trip to DQ (for the inspirational blizzard, of course) - "Touch of Grey" by the Grateful Dead and "Bad" by U2. You know the Dead song: "I will get by, I will survive..." and the U2 song's title doesn't seem to fit the current situation but it always has been - and will remain - my most favorite song in the entire universe. Perfect.
love, friday (labor day in july edition...stay tuned)
