SO… I’ll continue to keep you apprised of any Baby Freedom news.  Last night I was awakened by sporadic searing pains down my legs and I thought we might get this baby party started early, but alas, Freedom was just messing with me.  As usual.  Unable to go back to sleep, I did what any sane pregnant lady would do… and woke up at 5 a.m. to paint my toenails.  I couldn’t see well for obvious reasons, but I’m hoping some of the red “Pouf Daddy” paint actually made somewhere in the vicinity of my toes.  I would hate for Freedom’s first impression of me to be of my Pouf Daddy-splattered ankles.
