14 weeks and 2 days. That is how long from now it will be when Parker Wasson Stanton leaves Erika's womb and comes out into the wide world. We can be sure of the date because his birth will be by C-section.
Sarah is excited about his impending arrival. Yesterday she rubbed Erika's stomach and spoke to her little brother by name, saying "we'll see you on June 23rd." Last week she made him a baby rattle by filling a plastic Easter egg with sequins, sealing it shut with decorative tape, and using that same tape to attach the egg to a popsicle stick.
In an extra serving of cuteness, when I asked her what she put inside the rattle, she said "they're called sequences."
We are confident Sarah will be an excellent and very attentive big sister, and we can't wait for the day to arrive.
