I feel that at this very moment,

Amanda and I are in a roller-coaster car and we are clickety- clacketing on up that hill

very slowly, yet smoothly

And once the baby finally arrives and is here,

we are going to descend into a  rapid, wacky ride filled with twists, turns, dips and corkscrews

and we will all be screaming

and crying

and happy

and scared

and anxious

but mostly happy
