Wow, I know it has been awhile since my last entry. Life has been busy. There is so much to say about Norah, and how wonderful she is. She has put a song in my heart. I am also going to say that I now have poo and puke stained clothes that I spend most of my time in. I also have given up wearing my bra unless I am going in public. My breasts now belong to Norah! haha. It is amazing how quickly babies change. My camera is always in reach, along with a burp cloth and a diaper. I start my day with her smiling face looking up at me, and end it with her fussy grunts and arm flailing. But, I experience the world now through her eyes. It is like being reborn! I look forward to every moment with her, and every milestone in her life. I have a notebook where I write down all of the things I want to do with her, like tea parties every Saturday at 3pm. Or, ideas for the Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party 1st Un-birthday we will throw her. I can't wait!

Well, I am now two days past my due date. I know it is normal for women to carry past their due date in their first pregnancy, but I am starting to fear the dreaded induction! I DO NOT want to get induced, and every day that passes has me fearing that I might need to be. I would do anything for the safety of my child, don't get me wrong...but why will she not come? Is she scared? Is she too comfortable? I have tried having a serious heart-to-heart talk with her, but she is still not coming out! Not only am I feeling so discouraged right now, but I am starting to put the pressure on her. She is an Aquarius, so she is probably not coming out only because I want her to so badly, haha...those stubborn Aquarians! I have given up thinking that she might come out at all. In all honesty, I used to go to bed and think..."maybe tonight...", but now I think..."Yeah right...It won't happen". I don't worry much anymore, about going places and my water breaking, or anything like that. Every time I call people they ask if I am in labor...my reply..."of course not!". Like, how preposterous is that...labor?! Silly.
I have tried natural ways to induce labor. I even ate a whole pineapple! I don't think that any of these methods actually work. At least not for me. *frown*
I just need one labor pain, or pressure, or something, anything!!

Hello! If anyone has been following...the baby is now due in less than 2 weeks! I am so anxious, and nervous, but mostly anxious. I have been waiting for this all of my life, and it is finally here. I can't wait to see my daughter for the first time. it is surreal, and I can still barely imagine her being out. I wake up every morning wondering if this is the day I will go into labor. The waiting is the hardest part! I will be sure to post pictures as soon as I can.

When I was young I had to memorize a poem for school. This was the one I chose, and it will always be my favorite.
Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
