Almost Packed, Almost There

I know, I know, I haven't been very good at blogging lately and for that, I apologize.  Time is simply flying by and the past few months have been filled with the holidays, settling into our new place, prepping for the baby's arrival, work and spending time with family and friends.  My baby shower was a wonderful day and I promise to post soon about that.  Until then, I have some happy things to report....

1.  We leave Monday for Mumbai
2.  R is stable and hanging in there like a champ
3.  Baby is doing well and growing by the second
4.  Unless things change (you never know!), we are having a baby on Friday, February 18th!

I know one thing is for sure when we leave on Monday, that will be one heavy plane...
