Lydia, Mommy and Daddy in front of the Christmas Tree. 40 weeks and counting.

Hello, again!

40 weeks and 2 days...and counting....and counting...and counting!

Lydia is not here yet ladies and gentlemen. This is truly why they call it an "estimated due date" I suppose! Alex and I got very excited a few weeks ago. We were sure she would come earlier than expected and surprise us all! Our midwife has told us from the beginning two things- 1)She is a girl, and girls like to go until 41 weeks (but surely not OUR little girl!) 2) This is our first baby, and first babies usually go an average of 41 weeks and 2 days (but surely not OUR first baby!). Maybe we should have listened... :) I can almost hear Lydia now..."Patience, Mommy and Daddy, patience"!
