A long night...

Blessing is up to his tricks again. I say his, because I'm positive this one is a boy! I had some pretty real contractions last night, beginning around 9:30 and lasting - on and off - to around 3 am.

Russ is going to work from home today, and Robynn has preschool, so I'm going to go for a long walk in the rain. Hopefully, gravity and exercise will stimulate the contractions again.

Robynn is quite curious as to why our house is a little upside down. We've moved the island in the kitchen to make way for the birth pool; moved her art easel for the same reason. We have the video camera set up on the tripod, and we took pictures of my enormous belly with the Christmas tree - kind of a before shot. We've yet to take the after shot!

I'll keep you posted. It may be today, or it may be well... whenever this little one wants. Robynn and I would love Blessing to be born today, because then he would have the same birthday number as Robynn - she's September 9th, and Blessing could be December 9th. But something tells me these things are out of our hands...
