"Boy~O, Boy~O, Boy~O!"

I'm fidgeting. Thinking of maybe biting my nails again. Kicking up cathair. I did 3 tummy crunches and then hung the clothes up on the night~time line. Turned on the babbly blah~blah~blah~babbly TV.....and smoked another cigarette. Checked the mail. Thumbed through it all and pitched it into the overflowing garbage can. Grabbed a black bag and went out on the deck, chopped the night blooming jasmine back into a crewcut.... and drenched the neighborhood in white perfume. Checked my emails. Checked the phone for voice mail, text messages. Checked to make sure I get bars in the living room, the kitchen. Checked to make sure the charger was working. And now I'm fidgeting. Again.

Hours to go. Maybe days. "Anytime" he said. "Rest up" he told her. I watch the clock.

Waiting on Baby Boy Love. Four weeks early and "anytime" he said....

I got here just in time! I don't do cigars, but I do smoke cigarettes and the occasional greens--not that anyone else should! That's bad.....

Anyway--congratulations my sweet friend. You are going to be one happy hippie g-mom. Hope to be around to celebrate with you here on the mystic web.


Sweet song of a new heart
that's where it all starts

in twos does it beat
like footsteps
soft wings
young loves

The songs are all unique
but they remain a constant

Like eyes of the only love we know
we hope they stay open forever
keening,
mournful
and melodious
summoning aether before dawn
valiant versus the night

a voice in flight
wings in the light
feathering footsteps
one by one...

a new heart weaving its spell
over all who hear
the beat
go on

KJ...Ohhhhh, I Know you know....I've read your words so many times....and felt them....
I don't think I've ever been so overwhelmed as walking, running, into that North Carolina Nursery after 10 hours of huffin and puffin' traffic and spying my baby girl, my first born daughter of a daughter, nestled in a nursery of thirty cherub faces....And KNOWING....Love grows....

Eric....my friend, this new heart stole mine
from conception,
from the moment
they said
"we think"
"we might"
"what if "....
this new heart
is my heart
rewoven
retold
waiting to take flight...

Skinny...
Girl, you're gonna win! ILYSVVM!

No...
Oh, I've already done the Carly Simon thing....still hummin' it....
and fidgeting! :)

Ibeati....I know you are! You know the joy!

Blue...You captured the butterfly with your words! Don't worry about the fingernails, I have ADD and I've moved onto sharpening all the colored pencils, pulling weeds, and regrouting the bathtub!

Peace~love my friends
Every hour, day, he waits, he grows....
His lungs grow stronger....
and his cheeks chubbier....
And his Mimi paces......

WILSONART said...

The excitement, the joy, the relief,,,,,it's all in there,,,mixed in with the love as we've never before known. The love of a new Grand.
Eager to know his name.

singleton said...

Babs...
We were typin' in sync....
And I know you know the feeling....
the excitement
the fear
the anticipation....
the "my child having a child"
overwhelming feeling
of
This is a Miracle......

And, I, too, am eager to know him by name. And while I think I'm in cahoots, and can call him by name before he arrives, I know first hand the gift of God....and that sometimes, he's are she's and she's are he's and sometimes you just lay your eyes them and they name themselves....Love at first sight!

she said...

singtome: -nervous, excited and joyful write with you

prayers * hugs * kisses and big congratulations as you prepare to fall in love all over again

singleton said...

she....
I am in love all over again....
with the knowing....
Still counting.....

karma......Clink! Me, too! I can't wait for that first glimpse, that little voice breaking the sound barrier, just can't wait.....

Babs.....Getting antsy! Contractions yesterday afternoon stopped..... Skinny might just win this one! She's bankin' on Tuesday!

Peace~love friends
Sing it in a lullabye

Gillian said...

WEll????

And good no nail biting. Keep pullin weeds.
xo

WILSONART said...

Keeping the vigil.

Jack was 4 weeks early,,without any problems,,,,but as you say, the longer they can cook the better.
Mom was on bedrest for 3 months prior,,every day counted as GOLDEN,,,baking, cooking, completing to perfection our tiny little miracle preemie. The 3 months and many false trips to the hospital were nail biters for sure.
But the whooping and hollering all over that hospital floor,cell phone calls, and internet messages, not to be forgotten.

HE'S HERE,,,,he's perfect!

Expecting Miracles,
And smiling.

singleton said...

Blue....
Whew! This waiting is nerve wracking! Now I'm stringing bottlecops and toying with pullin' the henna back out!

Babs....Your world, our world, so umbilically connected, in so many ways....We have that same miracle baby here....Jonah.....determined to be delivered from five months on....and miraculously delivered six weeks early....perfect...

Listen to the wind.....
There's a baby on the way....

WILSONART said...

Tuesday.
Are we there yet?

singleton said...

Babs.....
Today's the 7th day past "anytime"......
Still waiting.......
:)

singleton said...

Update.....
From bedrest to "start walking".....
and
still waiting......
:)
