I Even Tried Dancing

My friend Niki got married yesterday and had I not been pregnant, I would have been in her wedding. I wasn't sure I would make it to the wedding because you just never know about the timing of baby, so she knew it was possible I wouldn't make it there. Plus with the contractions I've been having, we didn't want to go too far away from the hospital. But Kenny and I ended up making the reception, which then Niki cried when we walked in because she was so happy we were there. I was SO HAPPY we were there. I actually had a hard time yesterday morning not knowing if I was going to get to see one of my BFFs get married....I just had to be there! So we went and had a great time, and, oh yeah, I DANCED. I danced to Thriller (Kenny moonwalked, oh yes, he did, and there was a cowboy hat involved too) and then the hokie pokie, the train, and a few others. I really wanted to dance to Baby Got Back and change the words to Baby Got Out, but you know how it is. Baby is still in tact and happy in my womb. It was fun feeling human again and skaking my bootie last night. It wasn't as fast as I would normally go, but it was still good and made me feel like I ran a marathon anyway. I worked off the wedding cake in no time! I've resigned to begging my baby to make his appearance. If he's happy in there, I'm happy to keep him in there a little longer. I know allowing my body to do its own thing on its own time is the best, so we're still just waiting for junior (we're not naming him Kenny, jr) to be good and ready. Poor Kenny is soooooo frustrated trying to make appointments and work around the fact that he might have to be pulled away any minute. That's one of the many drawbacks for people who run their own business alone. There's no one to pick up the slack or answer the phone when you are away! Not like he can call his boss and say he needs a few days when I have this baby! Thanks for all the well wishes and speedy labor....keep them coming! I'm actually going to work WITH Kenny today, but nothing crazy, I'll be sitting or walking slowly the whole time, it's better than wandering around the yard looking for things to water or allowing the dog to "walk me" around the block!!
