of baby.

Ok. I am giddy. I seriously cannot contain myself. Today is my due date!! Finn was born on his. Wouldn’t it be marvelous if my boys’ birthdays were Groundhog day and Earth day? Perfect days for a nature loving Mama! I am ecstatic to tell everyone the name, too. I am so bad about keeping my own secrets. If there’s something exciting to share than I bubble over with exuberance. But I have been very good and the surprise will be that much sweeter!
Today I am on an internet hunt for a new woodland baby journal. My predicament is that I can’t find anything that comes close to Finn’s Baby Binth Book. It has the perfect amount of space for pictures and writing, just the right colors and style, and is just so darling! I’m contemplating just buying the same exact book. I wish they made them in different colors! Like orange or brown. Anybody have any suggestions?

Also putting me in baby fever, yesterday my friend Monica dropped a little package off on my doorstep. I cannot believe she didn’t ring the doorbell because she lives out of town and I would have loved to see her! But she gave Finn, the baby, and I such sweet gifts! An owl necklace for me (love), a little alphabet bug book for Finn (he loves), and the most adorable little vintage giraffe overalls for the baby! (pictured above) It put me in the mood for baby more than ever! I didn’t have a shower this time around, so I haven’t had the the balloons and cupcakes excitement you usually have right before a baby comes…

Then last night I got to spend the evening with my grandma and she had two more gifts for me, one in party bag form, and the other in the form of prayer. She blessed me and the baby and the delivery. I felt so happy and warm in her presence, the mother of 5 boys, the matriarch of our Spiro family. If I wasn’t ready before, now I really really am. So much love!

Of course, there is always a cloud to every silver lining…Beau told me that I can’t have the baby today because there’s a sounders match. Ha!!!! He is dressed like a highlighter in their new kit today. I wonder if he’ll still be wearing it at the hospital if the baby does decide to make an appearance. I told him he can watch the game in the hospital room if he wants…as long as it’s not when I’m pushing. Oh Beau.

So in conclusion,
as always,
I am ready to meet this little guy!!

Happy due date!!
