One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

The countdown begins...

Well -- I had an appointment yesterday with my ob/gyn. We now have a delivery date set for our little guy. Pending any early labor, I will deliver on April 9th at 12:30PM. Less than two months away!!

I would have tried for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) delivery -- but my doctor mentioned some possible complications (including uterine rupture) -- and since the deliveries are less than 2 years apart, he doesn't recommend a VBAC.

Part of me would have liked to have tried to deliver naturally, -- but part of me (my wimpy side) likes the idea of no contractions, pushing, etc... I am just praying for another easy recovery after this C-section, like last time.

Crazy April birthdays though --- a TON of people have birthdays in April (Travis and I included). I am just glad we didn't have to schedule our son's delivery on Trav's birthday -- April 11th. It is nice that they will each have their own special day :)

YAY for a scheduled date. I am so excited. Our little one's will be born 2-days apart. (unless one of us goes early :) )

That must be so nice to know when your due date is going to be. Talk about r-e-l-i-e-f! Hopefully he cooperates with you and doesn't try and come early. ;)

I had my kids 15 months apart too.
