Did I mention that today is our official due date?
When given our due date, I did think about the huge October snowstorm we had last year at this time, the one where we lost power for three days, but figured we would be fine because lightning doesn't strike twice and all, right? Oh well! We've done all we can do to prepare, for the baby and the storm, and the rest is out of our hands.
Dear Alexander or Annabelle,
Today is October 28, your due date. Maybe you didn't hear? I realize that you must be quite cozy inside Mommy's tummy but your Daddy and I are getting impatient to meet you! We can't wait to hold you for the very first time and bring you home.
Don't worry about "Superstorm" Sandy. If you decide to come tonight or tomorrow, your Daddy has a chainsaw and he is not afraid to use it! Nothing will stand in the way of us getting to the hospital so you can be brought into this world safely.
However, as much as we want to meet you, Daddy requests that you do your best to wait until at least Tuesday. :)
Halloween is Wednesday...what a fun birthday that would be! Just a little something to keep in mind. Can't wait to see you soon.
Lots of love,
Your Mom and Dad
