We are still waiting for Avett to make his entrance in to the world!
While this waiting has been a test of my patience it has also given me the gift of extra time with Evie. We have had the best past week together. We have been on dates just the two of us to The Flying Biscuit, we have painted fingernails more times than I can count, we've taken a lot of bubble baths together, we've gone to visit lots of people we love, and we have spent a lot of time out on our front porch feeling the fall breeze. While I'm getting anxious to meet our little boy I am so grateful for the perfect week I've had with just my girl. She will always be my first baby and I'll always cherish the memories of our times together.
This waiting has also given John and I some extra time to kill. We've watched Jimmy Fallon clips, thrown pillows at eachother from across the room, and he's even plucked my two chin hairs so that I'm presentable for the delivery room. Last night after work he brought home the BEST Chinese takeout I've ever had. He ordered things extra spicy in hopes of moving things along. On the way home he called me and said he had a surprise that he just couldn't wait to tell me about.
Back story: our first fall together when we were newlyweds we consumed about 30 gallons of New York Style Pumpkin Cheesecake Icecream. We would watch Lost and Office marathons in our tiny apartment at Woodcreek and make out during the Verizon commercial we hated. Somehow we have missed this ice cream for the past two fall seasons. We've been everywhere looking for it but with no success.
So when Mr Murphy called last night with that undeniable excitement brimming on his voice I knew it could only be one thing: New York Style Pumpkin Cheesecake Icecream. The heavens opened and angels sang. It was better than I even remembered it. Last night was awesome.
Any suggestions of things to do while waiting for a very tardy baby?
I'm glad I'm not the only one with two chin hairs :) Pesky buggers!
