Daniel is just precious, in my professional unbiased opinion. Every night when we tuck him in to bed, he wants a story. And all week, he's asked to hear about baby sister and how to be a big brother, and grins ear to ear hearing about it.

Just got back from the doctor and we get to stay pregnant! As far as fluid, my biggest pocket measures 5.9 all by itself. There's smaller ones on each side and a few tiny ones here and there. Doctor is pretty optimistic that we'll make our scheduled delivery on 6/5! I go back next Friday and then Princess will be here the following Tuesday at 38w3d.

It's weird...this whole time I've associated that finish line with WHEN I'll get preeclampsia or at least have fetal indicators to need delivery. But it's just now occurred to me that there is a natural end to this thing, and we're...THERE! :lol:

Awww, what a sweetie pie! He's going to be an awesome big bro- no instructions required. That shower sounds like a blast! :)

A natural finish line... that's too cool and so deserved!
