So, baby is coming, and coming soon. By any definition of the word, we are anticipatory – both in state and action. We have got the baby items bought, crib sheets and blankets cleaned, bags packed, hearty food cooked and in the freezer (plenty of beef roast, roasted veggies, pork with duck egg and creamy potato soup) and the hospital room has been visited.
The only thing we need now – the baby. And that, probably, is the toughest part. We’re all excited – but we have no idea when The Big Event will happen. This has got to be one of the only times in life (other than being an eternal optomist with the lottery) where you are very excited about something whose time you can’t know.
Below are pictures of all of our preparations.
