No Baby yet…

Well- I thought I would start off Monday with little contest. Who can come up with the best theory as to why this child will not vacate his mother’s body. I’ve issued an eviction notice. I made it clear we can no longer co-exist. Delaney has beat on my stomach and told him to get out- she can bearly fit on my lap anymore- and yet he insists on being stubborn (imagine that?!).

Here are my theories:
1.) Mom has not gotten her haircut or her nails done yet- so he is too embarrassed to take me to the hospital until I am presentable to his friends.
2.) Delaney has a nice pretty room and I’m not coming until I have the same digs (Much progress was made this weekend) They should finish most everything tonight- pictures will be forthcoming (Gotta love Uncle Yeo!!).
3.) Mom’s job is so stressful- I’m letting her getting pissed off- so that I look great compared to her job.
4.) I’m holding out for a month of my own to celebrate my birthday.
5.) I’m not coming on a rainy day in NY- I want the heaven’s to open up and rejoice- it’s not like the Carroll’s get a boy everyday. (2 out of 12)

I will leave the rest up to you. As you can see- we are getting impatient and punchy. Could use some good laughs Have a great day!!

    Well my theory was because he was waiting for labor day – get it! but now that’s come and gone so there goes the theory. I guess the next one is "its all kris’ fault!!!!" I’m ready little man come on.

    Remember when I fell through the glass coffee table with Mattie!! – didn’t work with her either.

    I’m praying for you KC – love ya

    Kay there are easier ways to do this than falling….glad everyone it OK!!!! I remember cleaning from ceiling to floor before going into labor with Nick and Sarah I walked for an hour up and down the road and sure enough bang…and Kate she was just coming out.

    Matthew will come when he is ready! Enjoy your time with Lu and try to relax because there won’t be much time after he is here.

    We love you.

    She took a tumble today carrying Delany. Lulu bumped her head but thank God she has a hard one. Wonder who she takes after. Could be either one. Kay spent a couple of hours in the hospital being monitored. That baby still says "I want my Mommy. I like it here." I sure hated waiting at the end, impatient lot, aren’t we. Mom

    Are you all seriously ill? I mean yeah she is uncomfortable BUT when he gets here there goes Delaney’s time with Mom, sleepless nights are back for God knows how long, and you cannot go out and get much done for at least a month. Quit worrying about, enjoy the time that you’ve got with Lane and Little Man will be here before you know it!
    P.S. It sucks waiting doesn’t it?!!!! 🙂

    Well- Still no baby- but I did get my haircut and a pedicure. Nails get done today. Only other thing we are trying to finish is the room. Unfortunately, Bob made progress, but Uncle Leo got call in for a work emergency and had to leave 30 minutes after he got here yesterday. By Friday we should be ready to decorate!! After that I’m officially out of work and then we should be ready for anything. Keep your fingers crossed…

    I hear railroad tracks or bumpy roads are supposed to work and in my case, I ate a pizza and it threw me into labor with Beth! My theory is… he is waiting for his room to be finished!!

    I will try to brainstorm other ideas today! Anyway, all my love to you, baby Matt and kisses to my LuLu!

    You haven’t tried the s-e-x thing? Or maybe he is being a little shit so you should take some exlax to evict him! Or God has plans to teach mommy patience (no that can’t be it!)
    Can’t wait and my thoughts are with you always. Do we have a Baptism date so Lala can make plane reservations? What else do you have to do while you wait? (Just kidding). Oh- My friend Gary said try Reflexology- he learned it started labor- go get your feet rubbed! Love you and my little boo.

    Maybe he’s waiting for his cous to hurry and get home the weekend of Sept. 18 so she can love on him. I like the theory about getting your nails done… that’s a good one.
