A note from Jon...
Here we are on what Hillary has called, “D Day.” It isn’t necessarily what we expected after we slept in (till 8am) and took the dogs for a little drive to get some breakfast without an ounce of craziness or contractions in sight. I always figured that the day of my baby’s expected birth would start at 3am and cause me to run around with one pant leg on, put my shirt on backwards and frantically search to get everything we packed in to the car to rush to the hospital. Thanks Hollywood! Instead we are sitting as calmly as can be, sipping our morning coffee and watching the coverage of the Royal Wedding. In the spirit of the British, so far it has been a crackin’ day. (that means good)
So this week has been full of anticipation for both of us and has caused, at times, a bit of impatience. We (Hillary mostly) have tried to stay active and have been walking the malls, going to dinner and getting out to see movies (last movies of our lives apparently). There are only so many times you can walk by the Louis Vuitton store in an hour before your ADD kicks in and pushes you to do something else, so any time this little lady decides to grace us with her presence is ok with us.
We were a little bored last night, so I decided to get my gear ready ahead of time and practice for the big day. I’m not sure why this isn’t a standard in the delivery room, but every guy needs a helmet cam to capture the memories, right? And just a little help for Leighton to know where she comes from, there is no better way than to have the red, white and blue on a trucker’s hat as her first vision of the world.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer and we can welcome a beautiful little girl to the world this weekend. We will keep everyone posted via email, Skype, blogs, Facebook, MySpace (for our friends who are DJ’s that still live in 2005) and any other way we can think of.
Countdown – 0 hours, 0 minutes, 0 seconds……..!!!!!
