Today the girls and I went to the zoo and are napping now. By napping I mean not napping at all, but finding reasons to come down the stairs to tell me things.
Anyhow, what I was going to say is that if today was August 11, 1978 you would find my mother in a similar situation that I am in. Very round and preparing to meet her new baby any moment. I thought about that a lot on Sunday. I also thought about how sweet it was that Libby and Maggie both picked out earrings for me from Target that I had to open even before I finished my coffee. By 8:00 am I thought I had all my presents opened, but my little girls gifted their mama all day long.
Libby insisted on putting all Cooper's freshly washed clothes away for me. She even carefully refolded every teeny tiny onsie and sleeper.
As if Target earrings and gifts too priceless to buy are not enough. My husband gave me one more gift. For the last year and half I have been pining the loss of my fancy camera, trying to take pictures equivalent to the pictures it would take with my phone or by a less fancy camera we got before going to England last year...That is until I, or my children, broke that one too.
Monday afternoon, the UPS man, delivered a new fancy camera to my doorstep. It is so fancy that I almost don't have to do anything to get a lovely picture. It is so fancy that I was almost afraid to touch it. I can't wait to take pictures of baby toes and wrinkly newborn skin with it.

The temperature barely made it to the 80's today so I took them to the zoo. I imagine that we wont get back there much before the baby comes.
35 bringeth good gifts. Can't wait for that little late gift our family is going to get next month. Doctor told me that I only have 9 more centimeters to go. She told me to get ready, bc once my contractions start, she thinks I'll go quickly...Clearly she hasn't read my chart very well.
Grace and Peace
