My friend Bonnie has this neat baby ticker on her blog, so I thought I'd look up mine.  Since I'm still getting used to the baby being as old as he is, it was surprising to me to see how big he looks.  I couldn't get the application to imbed in the post, so it's on our sidebar at the bottom under "miscellaneous."

Last week, we visited The Midwife Center for an orientation and we have decided to go there for this baby's birth.  Thank you for your prayers; I was nervous about making this decision. The midwife presenting the orientation was very nice and explained things well and answered our questions.

The baby is moving actively, and I am sure that soon Jon and Jonathan will be able to feel him from the outside.  Last night he gave a very decided kick that would have been feel-able, so now the trick is patience on the feel-er's part.

Very cool looking at that graphic!

I just checked out Google Maps and Windows Live. Six minutes from door to door? That's a switch. What will Dad-o do for entertainment? You know me; first thing I did was check out the parking situation.

Yeah, I think that baby ticker thing is pretty neat! Although my Mom thinks it is spooky! It's neat to see the difference between your baby and mine. Mine still looks more like a tadpole than a human, but yours actually looks like a baby! It's so AMAZING how they develop in there, and how quickly! wow!
I have to choose a different doctor this time too, and the decision has been hard for me as well! I"m glad you found a place you feel comfortable with.

Yeah, no deer on Penn Avenue...

The Midwife Center has reserved street parking right in front of the door for when you are in labor.

I had been wondering about how we'd get everyone home, especially if Janet comes, but now any "extra" people can take a bus! (Hmm, technically, we wouldn't even need a carseat for the baby if we took him home on the bus... But of course we already have one.)

Note that if you click on the numbers under the baby bubble, you can see four different ways of counting.

Yes, of course your timing is perfect (God's timing is perfect) but we're not quite ready to replace the van....

By "everyone", I think Heather means all of you - not our family. We should be able to still fit in the car.

Jon is right - if Janet comes, there will be eight people coming home from the birth.

I'm amusing myself imagining you going to the center by bus. Of course you'd be far along in labor, since it's so close, so you could really freak out the driver and fellow passengers. Then if you actually give birth on the bus, they won't let you off till you pay an extra fare and name the kid after the driver. :)

Kids under 6 are free or something like that...

I'm sorry I haven't read here lately and I missed this exciting news:)

Congratulations.
