Today is the last day of April.

It’s been a good month, but as they say, all good things must come to an end.

Today is the last day I’ll send Seth off to school in Miss Jamie’s van.

Today is the last day I’ll crawl back in bed at 7:22 for just a couple more hours of sleep.

Today is the last day I’ll have to inject myself with Lovenox.  Shot no. 206.

Today is the last day that Jim, Seth, and I will sit down to dinner – just us.

Today is the last day I’ll spend at home alone.

Tomorrow, the weekend invades, and so does Grandpa.

Monday…..Monday, Monday.  Monday, our daughter arrives.

The end, and the beginning, at last, is here.

Oh Monica, I'm so happy for you! I know you've waited a long time for the moment when you get to hold your precious daughter! Just a few more days! Enjoy this weekend, and know that you have a whole mess of people praying for you and Baby Girl! Can't wait to see her gorgeous face!

I don't know why, but that just made me cry! So eloquent, and I'm so happy for you!

WOO HOO! Enjoy all those bittersweet lasts, and know that after Monday, you'll never be able to imagine a life that doesn't include BG. It may be a little insane sometimes, but having two babies really is twice as much fun. (Just don't read my blog today, because that sentiment does NOT apply to today at all.)

xoxo! Can't wait to e-meet BG!

I can't believe the time has almost arrived! Enjoy your weekend, and I'll be thinking about you as you wait for BG's arrival.

No hints on a name???
