You Think You're Tired Of Waiting

No baby. No signs of labor. Just one very pregnant lady trying to keep from going crazy. And one very patient big brother and one supportive husband. And clearly I am not getting my May child.

With such beautiful weather we went to my parents' today. I thought last weekend would be my last boat ride pregnant. We went over wakes and the bumps didn't budge anything. But Keegan had a great time and my dad loves taking him on the jet ski. He played in the sand and got very wet. Proving that yes I should have brought his bathing suit. I forget that kids don't have any nerve endings and therefore don't care how cold the water is. And my mom won't be happy until the kids suits are hanging on the rack for the summer. Nanas love that stuff. And I got to hear all of the neighbors surprised reactions when they saw I was still pregnant. Yay. But it was a lovely day and I should have put my feet up more. But I have always had trouble knowing my limits.

I will keep posting so you know the baby isn't here yet. And when we finally head to the hospital I will put out the alert. Why don't you people get focused and send me some baby out vibes? Thanks.
