the Last Week (i hope)

Today is the big day - the DUE DATE - when we find out if Pedro Jr. will start out his life punctual or if he will follow the family tradition of being a little late.
Hopefully, this is my last week of pregnancy. It's been a pretty good week. Pedro and I spent lots of time together. We attended the temple. I observed a family court trial with him at his judicial externship. We walked among the trees and ferns at beautiful Afton State Park.
We cheered with the fans at a Twins baseball game in the big covered Metrodome. We left at the top of the 9th inning because it was so late in time to discover a torrent of wind and rain pouring down outside with our car about 6 - 7 blocks away. We stole a couple of big, clean garbage bags and Pedro made a genious wrap for me. A couple behind us said he was making their make-shift covers look bad. I was very grateful to have the protection as I was tense enough with contractions (the deceptive kind).
So, it's been a nice week - part relaxing, part preparing (the laundry and dishes never end), part playing. But, we are ready for our little guy to make his debut.
