Well, things are well underway here!   My water broke at around 9 p.m. last night, in exactly the same way it did with Liam, and I am writing this post between contractions.   Looks like Baby’s birthday is going to be sometime today (October 17, 2006)

Funny how in any given family, there often seem to be multiple people with the same birthday.   My late Grandfather, Chester Smith was also born on this day.   I never got the chance to meet him, but from what my Mom and Grandmother tell me, he was a warm, kind man with a wonderful sense of humour.   I only hope our daughter has these same traits 😀

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers over the next few hours.   Exciting things are happening for our family!
