21 days.

In college, I had the BEST roommate.  We met when I yelled at her from my dorm window to say I loved her purse and the rest was history.
One of our traditions was making paper chains for countdowns.  We had a huge paper chain from her birthday, December 8 that went all of the way until my birthday, April 5.  We were seriously excited to rip a chain off every day and countdown.
We did paper chain countdowns for so many things.
Tonight she called me and asked me how many more days until Amelia.
She wanted to know if I had a paper chain happening.

Three realizations happened at that moment:
1. I couldn't believe I didn't have a paper chain happening and I couldn't wait to get home so that I could immediately make one.
2.  I miss Suzie, she really is the best :)
 3.  That although I don't know the exact day our baby will be born, I do know that  if she hasn't had the baby by February 29th, the birth mom will be induced.  
Which brings me to this fact....I will be a mom in 21 DAYS or less!!

The paper chain is up, and I can not wait to rip a link off every day!!!
21 days...OMG :)
