A Watched Pot Never Boils...

Apparently, my mother was right; a watched pot never boils!  I have been sitting around for a week now watching and waiting for this baby to be born and all I've seen is a bunch of snow (ugh...).  Today was Caitlin's 39 week check-up, so we (Caitlin, Robby and I...) all got up early and got dressed to head to it...hoping that the doctor would say she had miraculously dilated to about 4 cm. and was ready to be admitted to the hospital...





Her doctor was actually on vacation this week and she had to see another partner in the practice.  We saw her approximately 45 seconds and left knowing only that she was still pregnant and not dilated enough to go to the hospital yet (sigh...).  After coming to the realization that we were not going to be having a baby today, we all decided to head to the fresh food market in Cleveland.  Robby and I had rented a long term stay suite close to Caitlin's apartment since some of the family would be arriving soon and we needed extra room.  We needed food and the fresh market was such a neat place to shop...so, off we went...












We bought all kinds of goodies to take back with us.  Of course, Caitlin wanted mangoes and fresh ingredients to make guacamole!

Poor Kevin had to go in to work at 10 tonight, so Caitlin decided to come back to our place to sleep tonight. She brought her bag and the baby's bag...just in case...







It IS a Full Moon tonight...and you KNOW what they say about Full Moons and having babies!...Even IF a watched pot never boils...



P.S.  I know that it's cold outside, Holli, but I PROMISE to bundle you up to keep you warm and rock you as much as you like!

  1. Caitlin just wants you to stay there longer with her! I will tell Mom to save the sweater pattern for you. She said it was hard. That from a lady who knits pretty much everytime she is sitting down.
