On the readiness scale, I think we are at Amber (since I'm writing the blog, I get to make up the scale). Kris was at 3 cm this morning after a night of some hard irregular contractions. Her doctor confirmed this morning that Kris is in early labor. That could mean two days or less until delivery. She told Kris to rest now, while she can. That's what she is doing... except for when we wake her up to see how she is feeling. The doctor says she will dilate more easily if she is relaxed and rested.
Grandma Rose and Grandpa Bill were just here delivering some snack foods and will be stopping back in later. We are charging our cell phones and finishing up our baking tasks so we'll be ready for the welcoming.
