Baby is almost here

So this is it! Today we went in for me to be induced, and we started with the folley catheter. Laura, my doula, was there with Jeff and me, and she coach me through it with hypnosis relaxation. I'm thrilled to say that it didn't hurt near as much as it did when it was done to induce Joaquin. Her voice is very soothing, and I was surprised that it was so easy for my midwife to find my cervix and put the catheter. So we're just waiting! I just finished ironing "Sadie's" first little clothes and blanket (yes, I know, totally last minute), and now, I'm ready to get any sleep that I can. Joaquin has been sensing something because he's been a little monster! He wouldn't sleep, walk, play, do anything! the only way to calm him down is by playing his music videos. Julian and Magali have been wonderful these last couple of days.
Last Saturday was Julian's 6th birthday, and we took him and his friends and cousins to Boondocks. They had a blast! I'll be posting some pictures later. I'm worn out now, and I really need to get some sleep.
