I absolutely cannot believe it.
I thought we would have a stroll down Facebook-memory-lane.
During my time overdue (all 3 weeks of it, thankyouverymuch) if my facebook wasn’t updated I would get calls/texts/comments asking if I was in labor, or if Zachary had FINALLY decided to arrive.
March 15th- Well, I am definitely NOT having a baby today. BUT 17-years-ago I endured the most boring birth ever (at least to a 5-year-old.) Happy Birthday, baby brother! Love you, Adam! Sorry your nephew won’t be here to share your day! 😉
March 16th- One day “overdue.” Once again the doctor’s magic pinwheel is incorrect when telling me when I’ll have babies 😉
March 18th- I am so buying a giant snickerdoodle cookie tomorrow. Maybe 2. Or 50. [I must have had a bad day…]
March 19th- Dear Zachary, in case you were wondering you have 7 more hours to be born in order to be a winter baby like your mama. I think that would be awesome. But if you really want to be a Spring baby, I support you in this endeavor. Love, Mama
March 20th- Alright, Z, if you aren’t coming tonight, please stop teasing me, and let me sleep. Teasing is rude. You’ll learn that once you get here 😉
March 22nd- Ahhh, week 41 my old friend….
March 23rd- Me: There’s nothing on the internet!!
Jordan: You’ve discovered everything on the internet, have you?
March 24th- Off to walk the baby out! I’m going to need sunscreen…[It was hot and sunny this day.]
March 25th- That walk was a big mistake. No baby, but hurting feet instead. Boo.
March 26th- To do laundry or not to do laundry….I vote on having a baby, but unfortunately my choices are limited to the laundry decision.
March 27th- Sydney told me yesterday that Zachary was coming in 100. She didn’t specify the units though. But I’m sure I don’t care for it…
March 29th- Ugh 42.
March 30th- Alright, Mr. Zachary, Mama finished the Hunger Games books. It’s time to come out!
March 31st- 1000 piece Cinderella puzzle. It’s what you do when waiting for Z. [I never finished this puzzle…]
April 1st- “It’s the pregnancy that never ends, it just goes on and on my friends…”
April 2nd- Nope.[Clearly I ran out of witty ways to say I was still giantly pregnant.]
April 3rd- Stuffing Easter eggs with sweet tart jelly beans. [4 days later I was unstuffing them, as my girls were with their grandparents during Easter.]
April 4th- Sydney was most upset by it bring April. “How can Zachary be born in March if it’s April?!”
“We have orange juice, salsa, ham and milk….I see no possibilities.”
“Sami, I am genuinely scared…”
“BURGERVILLE!!!!” [At 42w6d pregnant I lost all interest in cooking or grocery shopping. I’m hoping that’s a good excuse…]
One of my favorite things that happened during my time overdue was I had a mysterious message left on my front porch. These people had excellent timing, really. Jordan was only home for about 15 minutes and they managed to do this during that time. We left this up for about 6 months!
Seriously, tomorrow my little boy is going to 1. Nope, he’s still not walking. He’s going to remain stubborn.
