Could have been a dramatic birthday

Baby's still holding out!  Apparently it is very comfortable in there although I can't imagine there is any room left.

Yesterday we had a lot of excitement around here with a major storm.  Unfortunately the storm hit hard and caused significant damage to our neighborhood including a tree right through our neighbor's roof.  I can't help but think how lucky we are not to have a tree right in the middle of our new upstairs addition especially when we're about to bring home an infant.

While we managed to avoid damage, we did lose power and with that we lost our air conditioning.  Frightening when it was over 100 degrees all weekend.  But leave it to Aaron to make the best of a situation, he got our neighbors together and we had an impromptu cookout in our backyard.  Everyone brought perishable food from their fridges and freezers and we had a really nice dinner.  And to make the night even better, our power came back on shortly after everyone left.  So no baby but all in all we've been pretty lucky.

We go to the hospital tonight at midnight and they'll induce me Tuesday morning.  Hoping for a Tuesday birthday, we'll keep everyone posted!


  1. Best of luck Maura, I will be thinking about you!!!!

  2. Yay!!! Tomorrow is going to be a wonderful day with many blessings :) I can't wait to see the beautiful bundle of joy! Love to you both, dear friend!
