Listo means “ready” in Spanish and ladies and gentlemen, “somos listos” or “we are ready.”
Check out our TO DO list.
We’ve done everything from planting the garden to sterilizing bottles to bringing in the swing from the garage.
Belén wanted to try everything out with her baby to make sure it was still of high enough quality for Miss Eloise.
I have attended every appointment I set up from cutting hair to membrane stripping (twice) to toe nail painting to waxing and massage. We even made it to Easter brunch and the Kiddo Easter Egg Hunt which I thought surely we would miss due to being in the hospital.
My last day of work was Friday. As Friday came and went, we moved onto trying any wives tale anyone shared with us. So now I’ve eaten Whoppers and spicy salsa, danced, massaged pressure points, stimulated nipples and even attempted a modified set of jumping jacks.
This evening I told Andy that maybe Eloise is a good girl and she was waiting for me to feel like 100% of everything was done and we were really ready for her. So we just spent the last hour making the house as perfect as it can ever be, completely straightened, ready. I even wrote the check for the housecleaners who do not come until Wednesday.
Now I sit here drinking raspberry tea, wondering what the heck I am going to do with myself tomorrow now that I am no longer working, the house is perfect and I cannot pass a single 60 second period of time without wondering when our baby is going to come.
I am NEVER this way. I ALWAYS have a ton of things to do and cannot fathom even thinking about using the word BORED. I have already decided if Eloise doesn’t come tonight, tomorrow I will edit photos from Easter and of the nursery for future blogs and do some French Rosetta Stone as well as hang out with Belén for part of the day and of course attend my THIRD membrane stripping doctor’s appointment. But that will get me through Monday and then honestly I have no idea what I am going to do with myself the rest of the week.
I toggle back and forth from thinking her arrival is immediately imminent to telling myself to give it up and it is going to be more than a week. This waiting game is a trip. Unfortunately patience is not my virtue. Eloise, we are ready for you! We hope you come soon!
