It's time...

Time to celebrate that is!

Yep, that's about how we feel right now. Clearly this is a blast from two years ago when we were married in Mexico, but the feeling we feel now, is much the same.
For ten (yes, it's 10) long months David and I have been waiting to meet our precious babe. And FINALLY that moment will soon arrive.
On July 4th at 1 p.m. I started into the first phase of labor - and really ladies, it's not terribly bad - you just feel achy and have to deal with a touch of blood and mucous. Harmless really...
Perhaps this little one will arrive on time - the official due date is July 6th.
So far things have been moving slow. So, in an effort to speed up the process we've gone on two hikes so far today. Right now the contractions are about 10 minutes apart and lasting about 60-90 seconds... AND getting stronger each time. YES! The doc says I should wait until things are 3 minutes apart before heading to the hospital. Let's hope that's not too far away.
That's the update so far...more to come!

Abby & David
