How to Wait for a Baby

Knit a tap-dancing, banjo-playing, pig-loving frog.


Hunker down with a stack of Gilmore Girls. Pretty soon everyone in the house will be referencing Lorelei and Rory in conversations and speculating about Luke's motives--even people still in diapers...and how truly twisted is that.
Play ball. Never mind the wind, rain, and frozen fingers.
Knit socks.
Put on a puppet play. Releasing inhibitions surely ought to release hormones! Right??
Squat down on the floor and let your inner Jim Henson out!!!
Take a long walk in the Maryland woods. Push that stroller! Push! Push!

If you've got an extra engineer hanging around get him to stay home from work so you can all play!
It helps if you have access to a Humvee on a military installation. Once you're all belted in, aim that sucker for potholes and let 'er rip!!!



Go to the library and load up on cool books! Snuggle in and zone out!!
Eventually the baby WILL arrive, and then the fun begins...Even Miss Patty and Babette will tell you that.

Congrats! Your poor daughter having to go a week over. She's a trooper. I might just beat down the hospital door, and any others, until they induce me if I had to wait that long. Maybe I'm being a little too assertive. I probably would just wait, too. Cute baby.

What a lovely pics! I really love the picture of your daughter riding in the stroller. I would suggest you to have Hauck speed sun travel system for your next baby. It has got some best features and great looks. It comes along with changing bag and car seat.
