T-minus 127 minutes to E

So, at some point it becomes difficult to tell the difference between palpitations and a heart attack.  But I think we're going to make it.

We made a room change this morning so we could have more room for the crib and E.  Let's just hope they are still able to find us.

We spend the morning eating like HORSES...I guess that could have gone either way...but we both ate that buffet like we were never eating again.  Mom would be proud.  We sat and chatted with some friends we made from Australia.  They are really sweet and supportive and can't wait to run into us at breakfast tomorrow when we are a threesome!

Our next activity was to find some balloons to decorate the room.  There were at least 5 Marriott staff members trying to help us with this request.  We both drew a picture of a balloon on a string over and over and I'm quite certain they thought we were drawing a sperm.  The whole thing was quite comical, and while we did end up with some balloons, there was no way we were going to communicate "helium" so they are filled with P's hot air and sort of lolling around the floor of the room.

So, that brings us to now.  We are cleaned, room is cleaned, mascara is on (why, oh, why didn't I bring waterproof??), and our list of questions is ready.  So, now we wait.  And wait.  And...wait.  Oh, and sweat.  The room is about 150 degrees with the A/C running.  So, by the time Emmie gets here, we'll be a wet, stinky mess.  Surrounded by slowly deflating balloons.

Wish us luck...next time you hear from us, we'll be +1!!

Don't be fooled...we are both sweating bullets and nervous wrecks

I just found this post, which means that if all is going according to plan, I should've been yelling, "CONGRATULATIONS!" about 5 hours ago.

So... CONGRATULATIONS! :-)

Emmilene may not remember the warm balloons lolling about on the floor, but she will remember (as will you) the first smile and the first hug. Enjoy becoming a trio!
