so remember that one time when 2012 decided to be leap year, and how i am very, very pregnant by now--and could possibly burst at any second? well my worst nightmare is that this poor child will be born today, of all days, so that she could only count the number of her birthdays on her fingers (i'm a pessimist). warner seems to think it would be great, cause she could have like 3 birthdays every year. i'm not sure what that means exactly, but he seems pretty excited about it.

if you're looking for me during this extra 24 hours i'll either be in bed, walking around very carefully, or staying completely stationary, all in hopes my water doesn't break before midnight.

btw, i don't think im doing this out of complete insanity, the nurse that was monitoring me on monday said my "uterus is irritable". what?! like i want to hear that. what is that supposed to even mean? sorry about all the uterus talk, but seriously i laughed hard. she was way serious.

here's to leap year--and for me personally--not leaping around.

fully termed

as tomorrow rolls around it marks the milestone of being full term for this little one. it seems crazy to think that it has been that long, and that time keeps going by so quickly. the only things i want to eat lately are desserts. like the desserts at restaurants i usually avoid cause they are crazily overpriced (carrabba's brownie for instance). i like to think that baby has a sweet tooth and it's not just me justifying eating tons of treats.

i'd say we are about ready for this little one to get here, she has tons of awesome things waiting for her, not to mention eager parents. one month till d day.

i've been thinking a lot lately about how i want to have a playlist for the hospital. not necessarily for the actually birth (though it might help me not freak out) but like before and after. i just want to make sure this baby child enters the world to some really great sounds. parts of the selection include,

Midnight City - M83

The Story - Brandi Carlile

Kavinsky - Nightcall

Arcade Fire - Rococo

College feat. Electric Youth - A Real Hero

plus a lot more brandi and some classic band of horses. i'm thinking she will love it.
