hugs for everyone

seth has dropped. this part is the best part of pregnancy because it is so weird. so weird. really, really so weird. but also because it makes me feel like something is finally going to happen. like, i won't be pregnant anymore (the best option of several, i believe).

he dropped saturday while we were at the beach enjoying ourselves. he dropped with great enthusiasm and it made me yelp, "what the hell?" then squirm around for a few minutes while he settled down. way down. ryan gave me a look that said many things (mostly "be quiet" we have a parrot child). i now look both ready to go at any second and very uncomfortable. and guess what? i feel very uncomfortable, but in a way that makes me giddy. because i'm going to have a baby in just a few weeks! and then i'm going to be able to hug people! and i'm so ready to hug people. i even dream about it.

Well I am happy that you are happy that you dropped, though it sounds a little uncomfortable and slightly bizarre to me.

Congrats! Now comes the easy part right? At least for you if Seth's birth is anything like Ava's right? Good luck and I'm happy you'll be able to hold not only your new little one soon but also your toddler Ava. How I would miss holding mine!

I can't believe you will be having a baby soon! I can't wait, those last weeks are pretty unbearable. I hope all goes well with the delivery and such, good luck! Get ready for Ava to mysteriously become a baby again too! : )

That would have been my exact response, very loudly and without regard for nearby parrot children. Congratulations and pop that kid out already!

Yay!!! I'm happy for you!! Hopefully he won't want to hang out there too long! Crazy that you felt him drop! I never felt it with my two. Just woke up one morning and they were down! Must have been weird. I would probably have had the same reaction!
