10 more days until Baby Girl’s due date! I’m definitely ready and feel like she’s coming soon. But who knows, we’ll see!
Dave and I decided that since we’re having a home birth and live in an apartment, it would only be polite to give the neighbors in our building a heads-up. So that’s what we just did. Everyone was super cool with it and nice, so that’s great.
Two neighbors weren’t home (one of them already knows and is actually our boss… he’s the dean of the math department at the college we teach at), so we left them this note on their door:
This is Dave and Leanna from apartment #X. We stopped by to talk to you, but you weren’t home
We just wanted to let you know that we have a baby on the way and are planning a home birth (with a midwife). The baby is due on January 17, so we’re in the “any time now” point of the pregnancy.
We thought it would be polite to give you a heads-up in case you’re able to hear the birth through the walls. If you hear Leanna screaming in the middle of the night sometime in the next couple weeks, you can rest knowing she’s not being murdered
Well, that’s it! If you have any questions or anything, feel free to stop by or shoot us an email at **@gmail.com. Have a great night!
Dave and Leanna Lofte
Alright Baby Girl, let’s do this.
