At the risk of mentioning a cultural reference that half of you are too young to get...I have a catsup jingle stuck in my head. "An-tic-i-pa-tion. An-tic-i-pa-ay-tion. Is making me wait. It's keeping me way-ay-ay-ay-ting." Okay, hubby reminds me that is actually a Carly Simon song they used for heinz commercial. If you can't sing along with the lyrics I typed--look up the song online. Go ahead, I'll wait.
Now that you are singing along, you should know why we are anticipa-ay-ay-ting over here. My sweet sister Kerry is in major countdown mode. Baby Maisie is scheduled to be born via c-section on Wednesday! Tomorrow! Kerry could potentially go into labor sooner...and then little fingers and toes and lips would be here sooner too.
Pickle and I are feeling the anticipation--not in the too-hot, too-big, can't-get-comfortable way my sister is...but in the goosebumps-cause-she's-coming-soon way. We are excited for Kerry and Jeff and Caleb, and excited for ourselves too. It is beyond cool to hold a newborn you've already loved for months.
Anticipating something good is a luxurious rush. I'm unwrapping the gift of the anticipation we feel today...and will be back with good news soon!
What are you anticipa-ay-ay-ting??
