The waiting game

We now officially have 3 days until Emma Rose DeLuca's due date.

It would be an understatement to say that I'm getting a little antsy.

It's a wee bit easier to keep my mind off of the looming day this time around, mainly because I have a teething one-year-old who recently decided to start asserting his own will via high-pitched screams....super fun. :)

But it really hasn't been bad. Rowan's been keeping me busy, we have family in town keeping us company, and I recently picked up sewing. That's right, another step toward unlocking my inner suzy. I'm currently in the middle of making seat cushions for our dining room chairs. We'll see. I'm totally enjoying it and I'm in love with the fabric that we picked out - yes, WE....apparently John has quite an eye for fabric. I've been trying to take pictures as we go so I can share the process - the good, the bad and the ugly (hopefully not too ugly...I'd actually like to use them). So that's coming soon....along with my baby girl. Eee!

I'm just ready. Ready to get the show on the road; ready to see what she looks like; ready to introduce Rowan to his little sister. I hope he likes her. I hope he doesn't try to tackle her, or eat her, or lay on her like one of his stuffed animals. Maybe that wouldn't be so bad. He really likes stuffed animals.

Anywho, here we are, playing the waiting game. I'm pretty determined to win.


  1. John needs a good bday present today. I think in the form of a baby girl. Oh and you forgot to say that you can't wait to introduce her to her Aunt Stephy....I won't sit on her or eat her:) Can't wait to lay my eyes on sweet baby Emma.

  2. congratulations Ashley! She is beautiful! Jenni loved seeing the picture your mom sent yesterday! Apparently you are a rock star in the birthing arena! Arrival 2:31 and birth at 2:40! That is the way to do it! We are praying for you, especially for little Emma and Rowan to live for Christ one day soon!!!!!
