August 4 or August 5

With the leap year, I figured our due date was August 4. Our doctor doesn't seem to count the leap so she has us scheduled for August 5. Either way, the baby decides.

It's sort of like a volcano. We may know that she is going to erupt, although she decides on the date. And although we know she is coming, it is still an exciting surprise.

A couple months ago, Baby Smart experienced her first volcano during our babymoon in Hawaii. No explosion, just lots of VOG (volcanic smog). She also enjoyed her first helicopter ride from the safety of my belly.

Count down to baby's birthday

With just a few days to go, we are counting down to her big birthday or my big birth day. My belly bump is big, the pic doesn't do it justice and it was also taken a few weeks ago.

Lots of kicks and nudges but only teases. Although August 4 is the big day, we are hoping for August 8 -- 08-08-08.

Basket of babies

Having taken our baby prep classes and practiced diapering, burping, swaddling, and breastfeeding with a basket of babies, we feel totally prepared. We are sure that our real daughter will appreciate our expertise.

She is lucky to have two Smart parents. Since she will also be Smart, we are sure that she will quickly learn to diaper, burp, and swaddle herself. We can't wait. Being new parents should be easy.

Building a baby

As I work on building the baby internally, Matt is prepping for the baby externally.

Cookies for me and crib building for Matt.
