Dearest Darling Uterus,
Take a long hard look, if you would, at this picture of the last child you nurtured within your walls four years ago. Isn't he amazing? Look at those eyelashes!

Now, the way I see it, this current baby is pretty much ready to go. At this point, he's only getting BIGGER and creating deeper and itchier and stranger-looking stretch marks around my poor belly button by the hour. So...
LET'S GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD, SHALL WE?!?!?! HMMMM&*^!%*&^%!? RAWR!!!

Dearest Darling Husband,
How do you know me so well? On New Years day, you announced you were ready for a change. A "mixing it up" of sorts. I agreed absent-mindedly, although I had no idea what you could mean by it all.
Later that evening, after Ezra was asleep, and I in my perpetual bath, you carried out your plan of action.
YOU REARRANGED THE LIVING ROOM FURNITURE.
I knew then, more than I ever had before, that God created you just for me.
Rearranging furniture is like crack cocaine to me. I would do it every day if I weren't aware of the social implications for such behavior. (Read: One way ticket to the Looney Bin.)
I LOVE my new living room. I feel like I can breathe again.
And I love you.

Dearest Darling Ezzie Bug,
I LOVE the way you talk about meeting your brother. I love hearing you tell him all the things you are going to teach him. And I love the way you want to 'rub my belly' almost constantly throughout the day.
But I DO NOT love how you keep saying this baby is going to be born on your birthday. That would make him two weeks late.
Just the THOUGHT of that possibility causes mommy to daily eat her weight in peanut M&M's... and wonder warily if she has a little prophet of doom on her hands.
You're officially banned from the baby guessing pool.
Your Massive Mamma
Okay! So... speaking of date guessing...
let's Baby Pool it up!
Leave a comment with your best guess of the date of birth, the time, the weight, and the height of this little guy, and the winner will receive... something! That I haven't decided upon yet! But it will be great!
Here's the info I can give you:
The official due date is January 24th.
Ezra came 10 days early at 4:24 AM and weighed 6 lbs 4 oz. He was 20 inches long.
Good Luck, all!
