Jackson’s due date is Friday. Tomorrow our birth mom goes to the doctor and hopefully we will have some sort of a game plan. A date for her to be induced if little man decides to be stubborn and stay in the oven a bit too long.
John and I are biting at the bit to get the call. I realize there’s a good chance they may have to induce, but I am really hoping she will just go into labor. I want the surprise. The phone call in the middle of the night (or whenever it happens).
Anyway…I’ve been looking at birth announcements, washing a few Christmas outfits to prepare for our Christmas baby and trying to enjoy the last few days of life without a kiddo.
