This morning I woke Keegan up with a hearty greeting and told him that Aunt Erika's baby is coming today. He replied with "Yeah!" Later on he was in my room and picked up my package of Buddha pencil toppers and he looked at me and said, "Erika's baby?" So we all have babies on the brain today. In fact I doubt any of you are reading this because you are constantly checking her website for updates.
I have my bag in the car in case and I am here waiting to hear when I need to head down. We have an open plan depending on her needs. So I am going to be here at work trying to focus and get things done. I am purposely doing things that don't require a huge amount of concentration. I am so excited I can hardly sit still.
