little cian is growing strong and with every [swift] kick, the pain, i'm told, is growing just as well. any day now that passes is just another day closer to the time when he will arrive. maybe it will be on his due date, maybe it will be in the middle of the night next thursday. whenever it will be is a-ok with mom and dad, for we are just excited about his safe arrival. if this were an airplane ride, he would be raising his tray table in its upright and locked position, and heading in for the [descent]. in many ways, those exact terms are used even now. we are more than thrilled about our lives changing in the more dramatic of ways, and we live in a continual state of awe of our love for him, even though we have yet to meet him...
