Due date, shmoo date

So, even though I'VE been ready for several weeks now, it seems as though Morgan just isn't ready to come yet! My mom came to town last Tuesday thinking I'd be going into labor any minute and she'd be having a really exciting week. Instead, she spent the whole week in our apt hanging out with Charlie while Ben and I went to work - BORING! I did take Monday and Tuesday off work to relax at home before "Induction Day" tomorrow. The following pictures pretty much sum up the last 48 hours...

It was just what the doctor ordered! And now I'm relaxed and ready for labor!
Ben and I will be heading to the hospital tonight to start the induction, so last night was our last chance to squeeze in some quality time together. We went out to dinner for our last night as a family of two...

We can't wait until tomorrow to welcome Morgan Marie into the world! Please keep us in your prayers - we continue to ask God for a safe delivery and healthy baby girl!

Woah, that's a lot of candles!

A quick picture from last weekend at the Georgetown waterfront - the night my feet officially started to swell. (and they haven't stopped since) Luckily for you, this picture does not include my feet. Unluckily for you, I have a great shot of my feet below..... warning!!!

So, when I first looked at this picture of Charlie, I was wondering what the heck that big blue ball was that was sitting on our desk. I could NOT figure it out. Then I looked a little closer... and I realized it was my belly! Guess I didn't do a very good job staying out of the picture!
Ben's younger brother, Sam, came down this weekend from NYC to celebrate Ben's 30th birthday. We had a great visit and were so glad he made the long bus ride to DC. And Charlie was very excited to have a house guest! We tried to get him to pose for the camera in this one, but he couldn't figure out how to face the right direction. Oh well!

Sam joined Ben for his soccer game and they pulled off the first W of the season. There was lots of brotherly love on the field... Sam assisted Ben on one of his TWO goals! Unfortunately, even though I videotaped 90% of the game, I somehow managed to miss BOTH of Ben's goals! Of course!

Alright.... I warned you. Here they are... my swollen feet. Yikes! (I know I need a pedicure too.. but I can't reach my feet!)

I still think Ben's might be worse! Double YIKES!!

As the clock was about to strike midnight...

Ben enjoyed his very last moments in his twenties...

And then he was THIRTY!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Old Man!

We celebrated Ben's 3 decades at Bourbon in Glover Park with all of our good friends. Thanks to everyone for coming!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband.. I love you so much!
