T Minus One!

by Alexa on June 12, 2012

Mature! Unequivocally, finally, robustly mature.

It was not even close—Twyla’s lungs are basically sipping port and perusing a leatherbound copy of The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Barring 11th hour catastrophe, the next thing I post will be a birth announcement…

HUZZAH! So glad to hear it! Can’t wait to see that squishy baby face in the little pink and blue hat (don’t all hospitals have the same pink and blue hat?)

I am doing one hand out to the side and saying “Woo” and then doing the other hand out to the other side and saying “hoo.” With a little Z-formation head shake, for extra celebration.

Hurray! I hope everything goes very smoothly and by this time tomorrow, you are merely contemplating a couple years worth of interrupted sleep.

I am beyond happy for you, especially after all of the legal nonsense that got us all worked up and huffy. (OK, fine. I’m still a little worked up and huffy, but being of the future doctor breed, I’ll try to use my anger productively. Promise.) I can’t wait to see Miss Twyla!

Laura Williams June 12, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Woot! Anxiously tapping fingers on refresh from now on . . .

Kim Kas June 12, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Yay!! I’m so excited for all of you! Can’t wait to meet you, little Twyla! By the way, is that pronounced Twyla with a “will” or Twyla like “twilight?” I’d hate to be thinking it incorrectly in my head…

Yay! Excellent news. I love the idea of her lungs, in a smoking jacket, sitting in a wing chair in a library…

Hooray! Thanks for checking in and letting us know. I’m one of those quiet lurker types, but I’ve been keeping everything crossed for you that this would happen. Cannot wait to see baby pics. Good luck!

Well, Alexa, I’m the praying grandma who encouraged you to throw down with a hissy if need be. I’ll be sharing my 60th birthday with Baby Twyla. I decree myself as her Fairy Godmother of the Internet. May all her (and your) wishes come true.

I’ve been picturing Alastair Cooke. (Of whom I was very fond.. Laura Linney does not have the same.. effect.)
