April 15th, tax day, 105th day of the year, Sophia's birthday??

I'm offically 4 days past my due date...trying to stay positive and not necessarily say that I'm 4 days late. I must keep remembering that babies are born on their birthday, not on their due date.

Today in history: in 1802 William Wordsworth (one of my favorite poets) and his sister saw a "long belt" of daffodils which inspired him to write I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

I WANDERED lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

In 1947 Jackie Robinson debuts for the Brooklyn Dodgers breaking baseball's color barrier

In 1452 Leonardo da Vinci was born

Will today be Sophia Aurora Mallory Brown's birthday too?

Yesterday I did start feeling some pressure and discomfort. I've never wanted to feel so uncomfortable before in my life! So maybe something is starting but I felt good enough this morning to come to work. We'll see how the day goes. I have a doctors appointment at 3:15 pm and the Comcast people are going to come between 3-6 to install the internet, so maybe since I have "plans" she will decide to come.
