right now

This waiting game is hard. I feel like a swollen, achey ticking bomb. I have emptied the junk drawer, cleaned out my car, organized every cabinet, categorized the books, and even did some sewing. Tick. Tock. Tick. (contraction) Tock. Will it be today? Will it be next week? Will it ever be?

So I am trying really, REALLY hard to be in the now. Take it all in, savor where I am, not think about when.

Right now...
I am loving the way he chases prism rainbows in the mornings and tries to wear them.

The way the phragmites (reeds) bend over heavy with the weight of the welcome, cooling rain.

The view looking up...

The view looking down...

The wreckage of his creative spurts...

My big boy looking so little when he sleeps and I hold his dirty, brown hand in mine...

tick. tock.

Every morning when I check in, I wonder whether today is the day! Zach is such a delightful looking boy Cindy - and he looks so full of joy and excitement. It must be positively humming aboard your lovely yacht. Sending you good labour thoughts. :-)

Your picture of Zach hugging motherbaby rates high on life's list of Loving Moments; I am so excited for your family. Sending energy from SF Bay.

You're doing the right thing. Try hard to enjoy this moment - life is going to get crazy busy with two little ones aboard!

(Don't do what I did with baby number three. I was so bored I went for a drive. My waters broke with a great gush and I hit the car in front of me. It did take my mind off of things, but not in a good way...)

Oh, I remember the impatience, and I feel your pain right now. I hope the time comes quickly and smoothly for you, and that you are able to bask in the "now" until then. :)
