Baby Yet? Ummm, not quite...

Sooo, we're on day 5 of the countdown until Holden's due date... he may come sooner, he may decide my womb is so comfortable that he'll stay a little longer. Personally, I think he's "holding"out for Obama to be sworn in until he makes his grand appearance.

I blame myself. I watched so much CNN and was such a political junkie during this pregnancy (how could I not be?) that I probably scared him into thinking it's safer to come out after the inaugural.

C'est tout. What can I do about it except for rejoice that his nursery is finally a feng shui space that is a bit more suited for his arrival?

So Holden, in honor of you imminent arrival; I thought I'd post some pics of what we've been up to this last little while... and a couple of faces you might want to get to know. ;)

This "cake" is a diaper cake your Grandma Stevie made for you (yes, your Daddy's Mom) and Auntie Annie (Danny's sister). If you'll notice they put a puppy on the top (compliments of Aunt Brooke's former beanie baby collection). This thing was choc ful of not just diapers, but socks, receiving blankets, washcloths and all sorts of baby-supplies. It was the centerpiece at the shower hosted for you a week ago Saturday...

Later that Saturday night, your cousin Tatum hosted a "show." It included her singing and dancing to Simon and Garfunkle's "Oh Cecilia." Also an A Capella rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and "God Bless America" with her brother Max. (One of the highlights came when Max put his special twist on the lyrics: "From the mountains, to the fairies... to the ocean, like me foam!")

For the show, Tatum has also made individualized "tickets" for each of the attendees. Here's a sample:


My favourite is the one below... if you'll notice, little one, she even personalized one for you. She said babies are $1.00 (in my tummy) to come to the show; but apparently if you came out during the show, the price bumps to $3.00. I told her in some states she could get sued for that kind of pricing discrimination.


Next are a couple of photos of the "Ute Parade." You may not know this, but you have been through a lot of excitement this year between the election and the Utah Ute Football squad. Your Daddy and I went to the U of U game vs. the Team Down South and it could've put me into labor. The good news is, being preggers kept me the warmest I've ever been at a November game! We were also cheering the Utes from Eden when they finished a perfect season with the SugarBowl. Below, me and your cousin Tatum smiling at the parade.
Iona Key -- not sure how to spell that-- but he's a player for the U and he rubbed my belly at the parade for good luck! Huzzah! Now you've not only received numerous blessing and prayers from the Mormons, but Shiva Tae AND had Holy Water from an Indian Hindu temple. We're keeping our bases covered!


Here Daddy is with Tatum -- she's holding up some "Go Utes" signage and apparently shielding Daddy from some harsh UV rays! ;)


Hope to see you soon!

It would be cool if he came tomorrow in honor of Obama, but I think the only way he can really show his appreciation to the prez is if he came out tomorrow and was black.

Im heading to Harlem today for a rockin inauguration party and will think of you the entire time. I really wonder if Holden will come today? That would be very fitting. Oh ya, and I have more baby presents for you- I have a hard time resisting the tiny sizes. I have to get them to you quick- they'll probably fit for like 3 days :) I can't wait until Holden gets here. You're going to do great and I hope you're feeling calm! P.S. Cicely's comment made me laugh out loud. she is so great
