A time to rest and reflect.

No sign on baby yet, no progression towards labor to report from the doctor.

I feel content sitting in my house with all the lights off except for the hall light.  Laila has requested that we leave her door open “just a little crack” so she can hear us.  It is a comfort to her that I totally understand.  Growing up in my house was a pretty noisy place and I always enjoyed falling to sleep listening to my dad’s low voice talking to my mom, the tv as they would watch their show or (as my mom reminded me last week) her playing the piano at my request.  What a great time in life to be so simply comforted by the sounds of your parents. 

Now, it takes so much more to ease the anxiety and frustrations of life.  So, with that said, I will take comfort in the fact that when I go to bed tonight I will be able to hear my husband watching the baseball game or the basketball game (or sometimes both- he is quite the sports addict).    🙂  I will not allow myself to dwell on the anxiety of new baby’s arrival or the frustration of his ability to “stay put”!
