Waiting for Susanna

As my pregnancies have come to their ends, each time I reached a point where it felt like life couldn't move forward appreciably until the little one made her appearance. The feeling gives a strange flavor to life--it's exciting and boring at the same time. You wind up slowing down and just hanging out in the day you've got. Also, you monitor and attempt to analyze every.single.physical.sensation to figure out if it might be the start of labor. For a very long time, it's not. Here are some of the things we filled our days with while we were waiting for Susanna . . .




making lots and lots of art


working on projects

working in the garden

hanging out with friends at the museum

eating snacks, and playing with them

taking walks

and then, finally, later the same evening this last photo was taken, she came!!
