Well today is almost over and we are still waiting. I am having much stronger contractions that do seem painful...maybe she is coming?? Heikki was able to make it home so it would be perfect timing. He has to leave Sat. for another trip, so everyone cross your fingers that she will come before then. We went to dinner with some friends tonight that have a 4 week old baby. Markku was interested in seeing her and kept asking to go look at her. Hopefully that means he won't hate his baby sister! He is very fond of my growing belly-so I am sure he will be disappointed to lose that AND have a little sister taking attention from him! Here is a photo of him loving the belly... I admit I am very torn about all this. I am excited that Suvi is almost here and sad that I will have to share Markku! Will I have enough time for both of them (and not be too cranky with Markku?)? I know mothers do this every day (mine did too) and that your capacity to love just grows, blah, blah, blah. but, I still find it a little unsettling. Of course, maybe I am just reluctant to lose sleep again! It took Markku 14 months to sleep through the night...now what have we done?!
