Aaaand We're Still Waiting

Yup, we're still waiting for Elliot to make his debut.  When Mommy went to her doctor today she found out that she has progressed to a 4, but she's still 75% effaced and Elliot's still at the same station.  The "due date" is 9 days away, though, so Mommy's really trying not to get too anxious.

Daddy had half of the day off yesterday, plus all today and we've been enjoying a little bit of extra family time.  This evening we went to Build a Bear so I could make a present to give to Elliot at the hospital (an idea Mommy got from Kate and Claire's mommy and Cooper and Hadley's mommy).

Mommy was thrilled when I chose the least expensive bear available...

and I was more than excited to give "Bear Bear" (that's the name I settled on for him) a bath once he was stuffed.

Mommy and Daddy had to do some fancy footwork to steer me away from the "Alvin and the Chipmunks" rockstar outfit that I really wanted to buy for Elliot's bear...but once Mommy showed me a "Baby Boy" onesie Alvin was all but forgotten.

I can't wait to meet my baby brother and give him his very first teddy bear!

Kate leaned toward tacky outfits too. Sounds like Bear Bear is very cute! Hope you stay comfortable while you're waiting! (7/7 could be a cool birthday! Or 7/11...)
