no news is . . . well, no news.

The phrase 'no news is good news' isn't applicable here. Today is baby girl's due date but she, so far, has made no moves to remove herself from me. I suppose there are good things about this, such as I have really been enjoying this time with Owen and trying to be really intentional with him as I know that doing that over the next little while will be more difficult. And Ry and I have been able to do some 'together' things as a result of her not arriving yet. However. We're finding sleep difficult. My mind is constantly busy and it is hard to turn it off. I am far too aware of what my body is doing and it isn't that I jump to conclusions but rather it's that I hope too strongly. And yet: i do know that this baby will arrive - I'm sure of that. I just need a little more patience around that truth.

Ry and I had a lunch date yesterday, as Erin took Owen to the Children's Museum. He was very excited to go with Erin and Lily, I don't think the Museum had much to do with his excitement - even though he does love it there. So, they left, and Ry and I decided to do lunch together at Trotters, a great local yummy place. We had a good meal together then we topped it off with a round from Cahoots Coffee Bar. I had their most delicious hot chocolate and Ry had coffee. Then we spent the afternoon, back at home with Owen napping, just visiting with Erin. It was a good low key day that finished with the Siggelkows gathering over supper to celebrate the fall birthdays. It was really nice to see everyone, eat together, and converse about life and such.

Anyway, I don't have a whole lot to update on. I just wanted to put in a post here to confirm that she has not yet arrived.

I was thinking of whether we had any new photographs to post, and I guess that I haven't yet posted our halloween pictures. So, here they are. Ry and I went to Daryl and Sandy's halloween party and Owen went with Erin, Ben and Lily to a different party. We all had a fun time!

I was a tree with an owl in a 'hole' or whatever.
Ry dressed like a t.v. character (Jim Halpert from 'The Office') did for his office halloween party: 'Facebook'
Owen dressed like a farmer. A bearded farmer, of course.

Been thinking of you all often, knowing you're waiting for babe. Both my babes arrived 2 weeks late, so I KNOW how you're feeling!
