Yup, I'm Still 'Round!
This photo was taken the morning I was induced - the day before I was due with Clayton...
...and here we are two weeks out with ginormo baby Butler.
Still around and still round, that is. And okay with it now. That, in large part, has to do with my sweet sister Nan, who flew in for a visit yesterday. I've been hoping this little guy would make his appearance while she's here. But the first thing she said yesterday when she hopped in
the van was "Millie, I don't want you to feel pressured to have a baby just because I'm here." I can't even tell you the relief that simple statement gave me. It's like a huge weight disappeared. We went to the doctor after we picked Nanny up, and the news was the same as it has been - no progress (the baby is still very high up and as a result, nothing else is happening.) I think otherwise it would have been a very disappointing visit, but I'm reconciled to whatever happens, whenever it happens now. So we have a fun visit planned with Nan - hoping to go to a ranch rodeo tonight (YeeHaw!), making applesauce from apples we picked yesterday at a friends house, and some other projects and just visiting. I'm happy Nan took time out of her busy, wonderful life to just be with us. The kids are loving having their aunt "Nanny" here, and I'm glad for another full 6 days of nothin' but Nan.
