I've been up since 4:45am  
Apparently Spencer thinks that's an awesome time to rise. You know, 2-3 hours before the sun. Psh.

I already love baby Spencer's pediatrician. He's ironic and funny, in a straight-faced, serious way. I think that's awesome. And his waiting room is decorated like a jungle, with lions and frogs on the walls, and butterflies hanging from the ceiling. His nurse looked at me and said "you have a tiny belly" and looked at my mom and said "and a nice-looking mama". Like I said, I love this place already, and this was just my "new mommy consultation. <3

The babydoc appointment was good. I'm still in a holding pattern, though. My cervix hasn't changed and I haven't started dilating. But my fluid levels are still holding strong at 12+, so baby Spencer is continuing to move around like a little madman. All is well. I'm officially 39 weeks today....so next Thursday is my projected due date. I have another scheduled appointment with my babydoc next Wednesday at 2:15pm....but we'll see if I last that long. I'm kind of hoping that he decides to come this weekend. It could be at any point these days, and I'm just feeling more ready with every passing moment.

It's weird living in a house with so much baby stuff...and still no baby. I mean he's here, but he isn't HERE. I think he just bumped me for saying that. LMAO

I have a bazillion checks to write today for work. We're getting a huge grant payment in today or tomorrow, and I'd like to have all of the corresponding payments out and ready as soon as the check arrives. Yeah, I work on a tightwire sometimes. It feels even more like a balancing act, what with the baby coming and time now. But I'm handling it. And I'm really looking forward to a summer with a slow work schedule...especially since I'll have a little one around to enjoy.

And just so everyone knows...once the first weeks get by, I want EVERYONE to come see me. Seriously, call me up...text me...email me...damn it respond here....TELL me "yes, Shonna, we're coming to Galena Park to see you and Spencer. Definitely." I'd love that more than you know. Look at me being all demanding. <3 Hey, I'm always traveling to see people...now come see ME and my little one! :P (well, if you can manage).

Okay, worktime!

I can't believe it's only a week until he (projected) arrives! That's just...wow! I mean...WOW. So. CRAZY.

I know I keep saying this repeatedly, but it's just...insane. I mean...you grew someone. Like...you grew him.

It is pretty unbelievable isn't it? Each time of think of you, I think back to Vegas and just finding out I'm pregnant. Wow, time flies.

YES, it's like women have babies EVERY DAY....but now that I'm having one, it's pretty insane. I grew a little boy inside my body....and soon SOON he'll be outside and we can be even more amazed!

That's totally WOW.

If I had a car, I'd be there in a heartbeat. Hell, I'll see if I can manage it anyway. Rope one of my car-having friends (like booksandbasebal or panicqueen, whom you should meet anyway) into bringing me out there. We'll see what we can do, babe. *hugs*

Hehe! I know one day you'll get your way over here. I have confidence in that.

No stress though....you're close by and we'll figure it out!

Awww. Yes, we'll be sure to figure it out!

Oh baby.

Indeed. I'm here trying to convince my mother, that yeah, I KNOW Shonna! Just give me that ticket!

But seriously. I'm so delighted. I've never been this expectant for a person, ever.

You do KNOW ME! Come on mom! <3

I feel so awesome that everyone is so genuinely looking forward to this baby coming. It's amazing and wonderful and I LOVE all of you so much.

He'll be here so soon!

Ah, it is so close now!! It is such an exciting time and I am so thrilled for you.

And I'm really looking forward to a summer with a slow work schedule...especially since I'll have a little one around to enjoy.

Oh no!! Are you not taking mat leave??????? :-(

Oh no!! Are you not taking mat leave??????? :-(

Well, yes and no! LOL You see, I office from home. I'll be helping out with work on a limited basis even after he gets here. This is the very end o the busiest season at work for us, so I can't go leaving my boss high and dry. Well....I won't go leaving her high and dry. So, I'll take at least a week or so and then knowing me I'll be answering emails and making sure things are being taken care of. We only have two people in our office, so I do half of the work.

It's cool though, honestly. Since I began working from home in January, all is well. I get to work in my PJs and everything! :D

Ah, you are lucky. What do you do that you are able to work from home? I was able to get 13 months mat leave, so I was pretty happy.

Man, I remember how I felt when I was just days away from my daughter's birth. It really is incredible and it is hard to describe.

Know what I didn't prepare for??? The first night she was born, she was in ICU and so was I, so we didn't see each other at all. I totally couldn't sleep and it took me awhile to realize why...I couldn't get used to nobody kicking me from inside. You get pretty used to it. So enjoy it while it is still there. But the best is still to come! :-)

I would so come if I could. GAH! I WANT TO! lol X]

Spencer is so close, I can't believe it.
