Picture for Posterity

After multiple requests, I finally succumbed and had my husband take this picture of me for posterity’s sake. I don’t know if Lisbon will care to see what I looked like carrying her (my other six children don’t seem to care all that much), but this picture will be available if she wants to see it. People who know me will barely recognize me with my puffy face and arms and . . . everything. Ugh. Not my best, but here it is.

Incidentally, my newest book, Before I Say Goodbye, is due out September 3rd, so I will have a new baby and a new book all within a week. I know I’m going to enjoy my baby, and I hope you all enjoy the book!

  5. Thanks, ladies. You are all very kind. I've had very realistic false labor or "pre labor" since Thursday, but no baby yet. Dialated to a 3. I think my body forgot how to complete the process. Tomorrow is induction day since they don't want me to go beyond that. Yay!
