Becoming Nonna

7 Jun

i’m going to officially be a grandmother ~ in our tradition, a Nonna ~ today.  


If she doesn’t start labor by this morning, they’re going to induce her.  She’s gonna be deeply disappointed if she has to go that way, so i’m still hoping she goes into labor in the next hour or two, just because it matters to her.  But either way, it’s starting today.

And in my mind, “healthy” is the main thing here.   We don’t know yet if it’s a boy or a girl, either one will be fine, thank you.  

 6/7/12 is a fine birthday, although yesterday i thought 6/6/12 would be pretty cool.  i guess, theoretically, this baby could hold off til tomorrow ~ 6/8/12 ~ but that would be an awfully long labor, so i’m gonna say it’s happening today.

Keep my baby in your thoughts and prayers, please…
