As a nurse I know that due dates are absurdly rough estimates.  Although that doesn’t make it any less psychologically easy to watch the days pass beyond that golden day.  We spent that last week of our pregnancy passing the time with family and friends:

Donating my over-due belly to a cast being made to display on my hospital unit.

Hosting my parents, sister and youngest niece, Aliyah:

(We had such great help cleaning and finishing home projects in preparation for baby!)

Making birthday cake for baby in hopes of coaxing him out and into the world:

Watching the belly continue to grow:

Thursday, 5 days after our “due date” labor finally began.  It was a long, difficult road until our all-natural delivery on Friday, November 20, 2009 at 8:23am.  My sister was an amazing help throughout every minute and I could not have delivered such a large baby without medication without her constant support.  (Josh was a trooper, too!)

We are so blessed to announce the arrival of our son:

August Heath Johnson

8lbs 10oz

21 inches

Thanks Aunt Amy!
