The Great Countdown of 2010...

What could this mess have accomplished?

Perhaps this objet d'art.

The great countdown has begun. i still have Gagey's little countdown rings, taped back on for each day that he went over.
For posterity, we wrote down our guesses for date & weight... m/w suggested Jan 31st for a date, the u/s suggested Jan 28th.

Cai- Feb 3rd, 7lbs 9oz

Sloan- Feb 2nd, 8lbs 6oz

Peyts-Feb 8th, 7lbs 13oz

Charter-Feb 9th, 8lbs 10oz

Molls- Feb 5, 6lbs 15oz

Gage- Feb 6th, 8lbs 4oz (we gave him his birthday & birthweight :)

mom-Feb 7th, 8lbs 13oz

dad- Feb 4th, 8lbs 3oz
If you wanna add yours, we've taken all the good dates :) hehe. The midwife did say, though, that this baby feels "small" - though they say that to me every.single.time. so i don't know if i should believe them anymore.
It looks like such a pitifully small number of rings, doesn't it?
i can't believe that this little one will be here so soon...
Grow, baby - snuggle in for this home stretch... enjoy the whooshing sound of my heart that you've stolen & the warm comfort of your squishy home for these last weeks.

I remember seeing Gage's rings still hanging up when he was just a wee little one.

I love, love, love that you guys do this. But I'm too afraid that I'll regret it as I get more and more overdue... ;)

mindy - i promise to keep you company this time!! AND - we start saving them a couple of weeks before & then we tape them back on for every day we go over - the kids love that part too & think it's hilarious to tape back on this totally broken ripped ring! tee hee.

That's awesome. I did a countdown paper chain to my little one's due date and after the due date came and went, I had to add another ten rings. :) May God grant you his patience as you wait on His timing!
