There is a woman in my life, lovely and strong, who can do just about anything. She can speak two languages. She can melt my heart with her smile. She can post pictures in logical procession in this blog, which I obviously cannot do myself. She can even overcome fear and pain to bring life into this nutty world of ours, and she continuously makes it lovelier.
Did you know that Lucas Marco Jonathan would not have lived through birth without the incredible efforts of my beautiful wife? She's a lifesaver. And the boy and I really adore her. And she and I really adore our boy. इ लोवे यू, हनी. That means I love you, in Hindi.

what implications!

this goodman duo suddenly realized it might be a teeny bit tricky to perform our pairs ice routine with a third member. do they even let trios perform at the olympics? no sir, they do not. so we are curious to see how this will play out as we "skate through life." (i know you are rolling your eyes - that is okay. it is a terrible, terrible metaphor.)

okay, all this to say, we are trying to decide on something special to do this weekend! because it will be our last weekend together with just the two of us! (most likely!) we might:

*go to devil's lake and have a picnic (never been there!) (and you can go and not really hike right? right?)

*go to a haunted house! spoooooooooooky! i said to matt, what if i get scared and i go into labor? and he said "that'd be awesome!" (he is antsy for the little guy to arrive -- we ate very spicy food last night and he didn't even want me to drink milk, for fear that ... oh, i don't know, something about capseasin (sp?) counterreacting something, rendering the plan inutil?)

*go to an apple orchard and maybe ride a hayride and maybe go in a corn maze and maybe have cider?

*go to that cave where you get to paddle around in a canoe and duck under the stalagmites. (or is it the stalagtites?) okay we probably won't do that because i don't know where it is and i probably shouldn't be climbing down into a cave. i know, i know...

i think that's it. what do you think we should do? or do you have some other suggestion? do tell!

when do you think

he will arrive?

(the doctor said he could be born at any moment! or he could wait for two weeks! (nooooooo!) we are very ready to meet him!)

and who do you think he will look like?

(i think he will have matt's eyes and we can only hope he will have matt's sideburns.) ;-)

and what do you think his middle name should be?

(can you believe we still don't have that figured out??!)
