Looks like he's on his way...in a blizzard!

It was 4 am. I heard a little popping sound, but didn't feel anything until a few minutes later...a little trickle. Yes, my water has broken. I have been having contractions on and off since then. Managed a little more sleep until a few minutes past 6 am, and now I'm up eating breakfast, hoping contractions will start coming on stronger and faster soon. I want to wait here at home until labor is really uncomfortable to try to avoid the "devil juice" :)

We're going to eat and take showers and try to go on with life as usual until we have to go. There is a lot of snow on the ground and it's still coming down. He just couldn't wait any more, I guess. And today is his due date too--never had one on their due date :)

Debating on when and who to call first. Don't want to jump the gun too soon, but man--what a time to have a baby--well at least it's daytime.

I'll post again as soon as I can...hopefully I'll be able to report a little boy being born soon.

Funny this is I thought of you this morning as soon as I saw the snow!

Shawn said that the roads are pretty bad out. I wouldn't wait too long to go... it could take you quite a while to get there!

Woo-hoo! Can't wait for him to get here. :-)
