Happy Birthday Dad

Happy Birthday Dad. I wish you were here.

41 weeks. I was hoping the baby was going to be born today because it is my father's birthday but it looks like we still have some time. 80% effaced and 2 cm at the doctor's office this morning so it could happen any day now. 

This afternoon I was telling Gracie how wonderful it is that she is wearing her flip flops with white socks just like my dad used to. 

And then she says "when you wish him happy birthday, do you wish that it would make him alive again?" Oh honey, do I ever. xo


  1. What a beautiful photo of you and your Dad. I'm sure he would be very proud of what a great parent you are Brook.

    Great news on the 80% effacement and 2cm status. I'm so excited for you. I need my newborn baby fix!!

  2. Brook: What a sweet photo and kind words about your dad. I've been thinking of you daily. Tomorrow's my birthday--maybe your wee one will arrive on September 14? That would be fun. I'm happy to share! It's a great b-day! :-)

    Sending love and hugs your way. xxoo Nicole

  3. You never know, Brook. I was born at 11:54 p.m. on Easter night...this baby could still slide in! What a wonderful photo of you and your dad. I always love to see photos of people meeting the loves of their lives.
    I'll be thinking good thoughts.
