Greetings from a waiting crib

Gah.  I have my heart outside my body and stapled to my knees.  If I fall, it will hurt.  I feel so exposed, pumping my blood externally and shit.  Hopefully two more weeks and this baby comes home.

I came out on FB about the baby.  Mixed feelings about the whole thing.  I feel like a dick for doing it but I think the only thing worse would have been baby pictures showing up like little bombs to the heart.  Maybe.

At least I look like a wildebeast in the picture.  Send me a friend request and zoom in on my roots.  It's good for a laugh.  Leah keeps asking why I have a skunk stripe.  Oh, isn't she darling.

  1. I'm so glad you posted. I've been thinking of you!

    Wish i could have seen the pic! I bet you were as sensitive as one could be on that FB announcement. It is an effective tool to getting word out all at the same time, and I do think it is better for those who may be hurt to know before the baby. I had one friend do that to me...hurt way more than the pregnancy ever could have.

    2 weeks! So excited for you!

  2. It was only a few days ago that I wondered to myself: "wait…when is Roccie due? I think it might be close to now" Thank you for answering that for me.
    I hope all goes well with the precious arrival. I will be holding you in my thoughts, and trust that all will be wonderful.
