I'm 27 today???
With our main thought being about the baby coming, the fact that my birthday was today wasn't exactly at the forefront of our minds. I've never made it to my due date before so I think we all thought this baby would be here by now.
When I talked to some of my friends yesterday they felt bad that nothing had been planned for my birthday but, like I said, we ALL thought the baby would be here so we didn't make any birthday plans.
So, Erin had some of us over for a little get together this morning - it was nice, me & two of my closest friends, Erin & Rach, & our kids. They made it extra special with cards, gift cards (IKEA! Starbucks!) & even a cake! I don't remember the last time I actually had a cake on my birthday.
One of the nicest parts of the day was the fact that overall the kids were much better behaved. That makes such a difference in the day. My piano also thought that their last lesson was last week so they were no-shows. My mother-in-law stopped by to drop something off (including a card & gift card (Target!) & we were able to have a nice little visit.
As another last-minute surprise my father-in-law called & picked up dinner for us at Five Guys - I'd just been craving it earlier today, too! It was so delicious.
As for the cake, Addison was SO excited about it. She just loves birthdays & the idea behind cakes & candles. We didn't eat it at Erin's in the morning so I brought it home to eat after dinner.
And, now, with just an hour left in the day it looks like my due date will come and go. I've never actually made it to my due date before, much less gone past it! I feel like I'm so busy & preoccupied with the kids during the day that I can't let my body relax enough to actually go into labor, do you know what I mean? Very different than the first two pregnancies.
I do promise to keep everyone updated!
