Gettin’ Closer!

The Mackie household is on full alert for the arrival of Baby No. 2. Christine put me on notice yesterday that a trip to the hospital could come at any moment. Quite frankly we are surprised we made it through the night. Our bed time reading last night involved going over our birth plan. Better late than never I guess. I sort of expected my lovely wife to say "now would be a time to get serious about this pregnancy Jeff."

The second time around has definitely been less eventful. There have been no emergency trips to the hospital. It has, for the most part, been smooth sailing. Also, our energy has been focused on Jonas. There are moments when I look at Christine and can’t believe she’s almost 39 weeks pregnant.

In some ways I am more excited for the birth of this baby simply because we don’t know if it will be a boy or a girl. Either way, we’ll be ecstatic. We really have no preference. I still believe it will be a boy, mostly because my dad’s side of the family have been giving birth to males for several generations. Only recently was that streak broken when my cousin Greg and his wife Amy had a girl. Who knows? Perhaps it is the start of a new streak.

I can't believe you're so close! Yay!
We were convinced we were having a boy because Shane comes from four generations of all boys. Imagine my surprise when Charlotte was born! This time we know it's a boy though - I couldn't stand the suspense.

Keep us posted and all the best for a happy and healthy birth experience!
