Life Lately...

Not much to update but many of you have been so sweet to check on us.  I am dilated to a 3, effaced and ready so it literally could be any day.  I have been extraordinarily uncomfortable but extremely excited.  We are READY!  We had another ultrasound yesterday and he is weighing around 8 lbs.  We decided to go ahead and induce Tuesday morning.  I would never consider this if I wasn't already dilated but it seems my cervix is made of steel (I was dilated to a 4 for 4 weeks with Abby Kate) and refuses to let my water break!
So that is out latest.  I cannot wait until the next post when I can actually post pictures of our precious son!
And just to leave you with a funny...
I was in Wal-Mart (walking like a maniac) and got to the back fridge/freezer section.  Thankfully and strangely, we were the only ones back there.  Abby Kate was sitting in the cart, happily munching on a new box of Vanilla Wafers.  I sidestepped to grab a few more frozen pizzas and my flip-flops slid on something slick, sending me into the full splits....  It was NOT a pretty sight.  I literally wanted to wail, but I just sat on the floor until I got my breath back.  Abby Kate was mesmerized, asking over and over "MOMMA!  What are you DOING?!"  When I could talk, I reassured her I was okay and that I fell (she thought it was funny).  It did not make me feel better, let me tell you.  If you could only see me right now, it would explain a lot.  I carried Abby Kate low, but literally, Bo is about inches from being birthed.  Literally.  So it compounded my discomfort.  But it WAS funny.  So typical of me.  SO stinking typical.
