To Those Placing Bets & the Population of England:

1. I regret to inform you that if you have put money on the notion that Baby Luker (a.k.a. Little Lad) (a.k.a. Lil' Luker) (a.k.a. Rumpus) would have made his appearance by now, your hard-earned cash will be going to another bidder. As of today, he appears to be quite comfortable in his warm liquid home.
2. To our U.K. representative: please ask your population to engage in enjoyable, distracting, mindless activities such as taking in the epic film "Australia." It seems to be the appropriate antidote to the waiting around that we are all doing in various parts of the world!

some action

No real news yet, but there has been some progress in the baby department.  Enough to make us rethink the old Diana Ross song "I'm coming out."  Stay tuned, and happy thanskgiving everyone.

Today is the date

The due date, that is.  But it appears that the guy is going to be late.  We have been waiting so long for this day to come that we can't help but being a bit disappointed that the little guy is going to miss his cue, but considering how cold it has been recently, I wouldn't want to come out either.  It is bound to happen sometime soon, though, so stay tuned for updates.

The last date

We went on our "last date" as a babyless couple last night. The soon-to-be maternal grandmother is coming to town tonight, and the baby is due Tuesday, so we enjoyed it while it lasted! We went to a place called Harvest on the capitol square in Madison (where we went for our "last date" before getting married too). It is a really excellent place, on par with any NYC restaurant I have been to, just with more space between the tables. I am going to think fondly of this place as I am eating my umpteenth Trader Joe's frozen meal come babytime.

We're Waiting...

Dear Baby, you are very close to arriving but not here yet. We are looking forward to meeting you! Love, your parents.
