Waiting in November

Okay.. So it has been a little too long since my last blog- and I have no excuses. So I will try to catch up and do better with updates. Here are a few of the latest pictures- Since EVERYONE has been asking for PREGO pictures (not the most flattering I tell you- but here is an attempt at a few)

Fort Collins has been pretty good to us so far. The weather could not have been better these last two months. Sunny and 60 degrees for the most part.
We both have been able to dig our heels in and work/network and have met a lot of nice people that have been great so far.
We have been staying busy, just last night we went to the CSU Women's Volleyball Team's last home game of the season!! Can't believe we are already through one sports season! They won and should finish top of the Conference- with UNLV right behind them (a little shameless plug to my Alma mater). Wish the other CSU sports could follow their great lead. We also also have been able to have a some people over for some rival basketball/ football games :)- which is always interesting and fun. SO far we are 1-1.
We also have had some family visit and are gearing up for our busy calendar of family visits once Annika arrives.
We love visitors- so if you are ever plan to be in the area, or would like to come and visit- please let us know so we can try and add you to the calendar. We only have a two bedroom condo/townhome right now though- so be prepared for some serious QUALITY time. (and if you have sick kids- you can't come till JANUARY :) and you can't stay longer than two weeks :) - Those are the rules...... )
What everyone has been waiting for: Baby news! No news :(
So today is the official due date- which is basically just one Doctors guess of when Annika might arrive. Although my doctor here in Fort Collins has been thinking Annika was going to arrive prior to today- as all signs physically pointed to that. (then my sister informed me that she was dilated to a 4 for a WHOLE month- darn genetics- so dilated to a three means NOTHING :( ...

With that new knowledge I am guessing she is going to take after her father who stayed comfortable for three EXTRA weeks- his poor mother. "We however" or at least I plan on serving an eviction notice like Joe did with her cute little girl Taylor- not sure Ben or I could handle the anticipation of another two weeks, or the lack of sleep that would involve.

We have been receiving multiple phone calls and e-mails with great anticipation of her arrival. Thank you everyone for your advice, concern, well wishes and eagerness to hear of her arrival.

We are hanging in there- and I am still going to CSU games :) and was working up till last week. I have enjoyed the extra sleep in the mornings this week! 8 am is way too early for me, prego or not :)
So that is it for now. I hope to have real news for you all soon. Cross your fingers.
