Tick tock

I am approximately 59 hours away from giving birth. Impossible. But there it is, a clock just ticking away. I'm very excited, and a little nervous (the last time I had a c-section the spinal block paralyzed me from head to toe for 10 minutes. Not an experience I'd care to repeat.) This will probably be the last blog post I can manage for a bit, save pictures of the new little man, so I have a few random tidbits for the occasion:

- We named the baby. Hallelujah. His name is Aaron Matthew. Apparently Matt was secretly favoring that all along and holding back on me--why, I have no idea. I finally called him out and he confessed. It was at the top of my list too. It's a relief to have that decision made.

- Two of my three sisters-in-law are at my house right now. They are both teasing me pretty heavily. I forgive them both, however, because Siobhan baked me a ridiculous cake (good ridiculous) and Renee is supplying brilliant artwork for Aaron's nursery. I miss sister-in-law #3. Patty, come on over!

- Matt gave me my pre-birth pedicure. I love that man.

- Because my mother has been harrassing me for days to do it, I texted a picture of my pregnant self to my aunt Linda tonight. She called immediately, and when I said hello she jumped right in by yelling "You're HUGE!" I love you too, Linda.

- I feel sure that my hands and feet are currently producing enough heat to cook something. It is so bizarre, and highly annoying. I can melt an ice cube in my bare hand in 15 seconds.

I'm sure there are more fascinating things to share, but right now I'm tired and hot and have a tiny foot lodged in my rib, so I'm going to stop here. I only have 2 days of pregnancy left in my life, and I am determined to enjoy them. Then the real fun starts. I can't wait!

Congratulations Nancy!!
Every new born baby carries with him the hope that the Lord almighty is not yet angry with this world
May the almighty give his abundant blessings to raise the baby according to his will..

Words do matter..
Words are like arrows..
Once shot..
It can't never be taken back.

Its a journey to overcome my deadly enemy called loneliness which haunts me like splinter..
It's also an effort to bring out with words the poet in me which suffers with extreme feelings of pain,grief and self denial...

take care..
