Still Here...

(photo by elemenoB, who says all pregnant people must pose with their hands on their stomach)

I know that many of you are wondering.

You're just too nice to ask.

The pregnant belly is still here.

It turns out my due date was April 24th, but I'm okay with that.

I actually wanted a baby born in May since all of my other kids have their own month.

(No, we didn't plan it that way.)

I have not been feeling very creative lately, unless you count making cards.

I made one set of Thank You cards.

I made one set of retro cards.

And I'm working on a set for my friend who moved.

I've been occupied with getting all of those "last minute things" done.

I keep thinking the list is completed, but more things keep popping up.

Maybe this boy is waiting for the list to be really completed.

He's so thoughtful.

I can't wait to meet him.

And don't worry, you'll be the first to know when he arrives.

I'd love to see the cards you made! What are "retro" cards?

All but one of mine were late (My 1st was 8 days over), and I had to be induced for low fluid w/all but my 2nd. So, I know how it is!

May all go well. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

9 Babies ... WOW how fun!

I also love card creations and would love to exchange pics sometime.

If you want to send me a pic of your baby... I could make up an announcement card for you to send through your puter. Just a thought.

Well please forgive my leaving a post as anonymous - duh ... this is all new to me.

I'm still in shock with excitement for you - I don't think I've ever known anyone having their 9th baby.

Blessings to you all.

Hey crazy lady. Hang in there. You are in good company. Maria's date is/was April 26th. She still in waiting it out (at least she was last night). Not fun to wait, but these kiddos must need a little extra swim time. All right. Everybody out of the pool!

annette-
Retro cards are cards with vintage-looking things on them...maybe I'll post a picture. Thanks for the well-wishes!

shannon-
We can't wait to see you guys again!

rebecca- The jeans are those super-extended panel type, that's my secret.

cardswekeep-
Welcome, and nice to "meet" you! I love seeing others' card creations.

gina-
I didn't even know Maria was prego again. Any problems with PCOC? Or was that just me?

chelle!-
If I'm feeling really crazy I'll bring him to card club on May 10. Otherwise I'll just bring me. Or send cards over with Allen.
P.S. I will probably not be feeling really crazy. But you can come over and meet him anytime!

I was just gonna give you a call today to see how you wear fairing. Good to know all is well.
Don't hesitate to give me a call if you need anything...I'm here as always...I ain't goin' anywhere! :)

You do realize that if he obliges you too much on waiting till the to do list is done, you may be pregnant for 9 years or so? When I was within a month of my due date, all I could wear was a very large tent, not even super extended things. The excitement is building on #9....

I was so wondering! So glad that you are doing well. I'm a Coda too and I loved your post. Do you mind emailing me?

Rest up!

Trish -
I tried to call you last night to find out what time American Idol started...

Shellie -
You're right. It's an endless list!

Codadiva -
I'd love to email you, I just need your address.

~j -
Today is the day! (May 1st) I'm waiting on that call from the hospital, apparently they are short on nurses this morning...
