Today, Max is zero.

If all had gone “according to plan” I might be in labor right now, or home with my day or so old son, or sitting at home bemoaning being past-due and uncomfortable in the heat.

Instead, I woke up early to deliver cupcakes to the nurses who have been caring for our boy for almost 3 months. I stopped by to give him a kiss and a cuddle and make sure everyone knows that today is Max's due date.

Today, the weight of the last 12 weeks is really weighing on me. Until now, I didn't realize just how early he was… so much has happened since he was born!

We're sad he isn't home with us yet, but know that he'll join us soon enough… for GOOD!
