Is the time EVER gonna come?!?!

So it's sunday night.... three days before my due date. I am pretty much the fattest I can get, SO uncomfortable, and ready for this to be over!!! We have our hospital bag packed... which I didn't want to do, cause I knew it would jinx us, and the baby would come like a million days later..... but we did it. In fact... cute story with that.

About a week and a half ago, we decided to pack our hospital bag. Which we are using our diaper bag for (THANKS AUNT JAN!!). I was on the computer dealing with something... so Jeff was wandering around packing the bag, and doing stuff in the baby's rooms minding his own business. In fact, there was one time I look over and he's pushing the stroller around!! After I finish what I'm doing, He comes up to me and says, "okay! The bag is packed!" And the look on his face was priceless... just soooo proud of himself! He sets the bag on the ground and stands there waiting for his praises... I take a gander, and this is what I find....


I started laughing soooooo hard! I said, "honey, we do NOT need THAT many diapers, and a FULL thing of wipes to take to the hospital!!!" And he said... "no that's good!" and walks off!! Oh my goodness... what a cutie pie! He was just so proud of himself, and I think he really felt like a dad, getting ready for his baby! :)

Jeff has been really cute about this last little phase.... Sometimes I'll catch him in the closet looking through all the baby clothes, or making suggestions on where we should put something, or how we should do something or when he hooked up the car seat. He could do a little better at offering with the feet rubs, or back rubs... ;) but overall... he's going to be such a fetching good dad!

I just can't believe, that by this time next week... we COULD have a little baby screaming his head off in our home! Nothing makes me happier!!! It's crazy to think the time is already (hopefully) almost over! Actually, so many people have been giving me advice on things I should try to enduce labor...... Spicy foods..... My thought on this, is I already LOVE spicy foods.... so would it really make a difference if I ate spicy foods? I don't think I can get any more spicy than what I already eat! Taking walks.... Jeff and I walked around our neighborhood for about an hour tonight... so I'll keep trying that. And Jumping on the trampoline... ha ha! I went over to my parents house the other night, and had Allie jump with me. About ten minutes into jumping, I broke the tramp! I'm not kidding. It was sooo funny! The leg just like busted off!! So I guess I can't try that anymore!! :) Any more suggestions are welcome. I'm willing to try anything! OHHH, and the other day I was in Target, and this old lady came up to me and said, "WOW!! Any day now, huh??" And I said, while sighing, "yep..." And then she goes on telling me to try castor oil. By this time, I'm trying to just ignore this crazy lady.... and then she says.... "it will either make you go into labor, or you'll just poop a lot... neither bad things!" oh my gosh... wow!
