It’s Monday and we are now two days overdue. While it’s a shame that we haven’t had a chance to meet the baby yet, I don’t want to rush the time away. The little one will get here when he / she is suppose to. So now, I’ve got some time on my hands…

Our condo building has great amenities. While I’m on mat leave, waiting for the little one to arrive, I’m taking advantage of it. Earlier today, spent some time doing laps at the pool and hung out in the “library” browsing through a stack of magazines.

As I was sitting there in a comfy leather chairs by myself, I started talking to the baby. I thought – with the great acoustics in the room – that I should start practicing some lullabies. The problem is, I don’t know the words to any lullabies.

My first attempt sounded something like this:

Hush little baby don’t say a word
Mamma’s gonna buy you a mocking bird
And if that mocking bird don’t sing
Mamma’s gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring don’t shine….
… don’t shine… umm..
Mamma’s gonna buy herself a bottle of wine
And if that bottle of wine tastes funny
It’s too bad ‘cus mamma’s out of money.

I’ll have to brush up on my lullabies before the baby gets here. :(

I was just about to text you! :) Although you are probably anxious and excited for the baby to arrive, you're right about not wanting to rush time away. I really wish I were able to hang onto having the baby in me for longer. I was just getting used to feeling her move inside me. This said, when your little one arrives, it'll be so exciting and the experience will be beyond compare.

I can't wait to hear from you (although, we all understand if you're in the hospital and not texting, tweeting, blogging, e-mailing, etc)!!

We'll be in TO in a month and a half since Little One has an appointment at Sick Kids.

TTYS! Thinking of you guys! XO

Homemade lullabies are the best.

I see on Twitter you're in labor. Hope it goes great!

Love your new blog look too.

YAY! I see on Twitter that you were in labor! We're all anxiously waiting to hear the delivery news! :) Thinking of you and sending you lots of positive labor vibes!

I won't text you since you're most likely in the hospital right now. I was a bad girl and had my cell on so I could talk to Hubby! Thank goodness though! Otherwise he would have missed the delivery! xoxo
