The clock is ticking

By many accounts, Susan has dropped. That means the baby has lowered himself into her pelvis and is ready for his final descent. It’s scarier than ever. By what we have read and heard from the experts in our birthing class, the baby could now come any time in the next four weeks.

Almost everything is set up in the house. The nursery is done. All his clothes are washed. We even have the bassinet set up. The only thing left is for me to put together a changing table in the downstairs den. Guess what I will be doing this weekend.

As scary as it is, I’m really excited. I was holding a doll Tuesday night in class to practice holding and diapering a real baby, and it was really neat to think that maybe in less than a month I will be doing that full time. Then I also look at people with toddlers and think about how I can’t wait for those days, even the terrible twos.
