We have been assigned a tentitive date for my c section. BP is creeping ever higher, though the OB is waiting 2 more weeks to see if it comes back down after all the coughing. So she said she usually tries for the 39th week, but between my medical history and dd being 2weeks early, she went a week earlier. Anyway, she said she tries to schedule them for either Thurs or Friday so did I want Feb 3 or 4? Out of the blue, dd says, "I want the third."
OB asked why and dd says (with a very "grownups don't know anything" look), "Its Elmo's birthday." Then she went back to watching Thomas on my iPod. So, if all goes according to Hoyle, dd2 will be born Feb 3, on Elmo's birthday. I'm just waiting for dd to get tired of the new addition and try to send her to Elmo. I know I prefered Ernie and Bert to my baby sister when I was 5.
