Mark your calendar

This Sunday, May 27th we are going into the hospital and Amy is going to be induced. So Molly should be here later that day. Don't worry I'll have pictures posted first chance I get on Sunday. Amy and I are extremely excited and can't wait to finally meet her!

Looks like the predictions have come down to two people Richard Roberts (friend of mine from work) and Amy's Aunt Michelle. If Molly comes before 4:00 PM Richard will be our winner of the free lunch/dinner, if she's stubborn and comes after 4:00 PM Aunt Michelle is going to have to make a trip to KC :)

My Birthday

I had already come to the realization that my birthday will be second to Molly's since we'll have the same birth month. But it really hit me when I received a pink diaper bag for my birthday yesterday :)

Also, yesterday Amy and her mom went to get pedicures and the guy who did Amy's asked her if she was ready to have the baby and when Amy said yes he told her that in 48 hours she would go into labor, so if we have a bay today or tomorrow, you'll know what ever he did worked.

Weekly Visits

We are the point of visiting with the doctor every week. This week much to Amy's dismay she isn't doesn't appear that Molly is going to come too soon. It looks like Amy will be induced over the Memorial Day Weekend, so it's looking good for the people that predicted the 27th and 28th.

Also, I would like everyone to know that I attended Daddy Boot Camp this week and I am trained in the proper way to put a diaper on a baby :)

Sorry June Prediction People

Amy and I went to the doctor last week and when Amy asked how long he would let her go before he would induce he preceded to tell us that he is going on a 10 day family vacation and will be leaving May 31st (our due date). That left us with 3 options; one we just let her come naturally and possibly have an on call doctor, two wait for him to return and be induced or three we induce before he leaves. So unless Molly decides to come out earlier Amy will be induced the end of May. Looks like everyone that picked Amy to go late is out of luck :)
