This morning Emily called to tell us she was having mild, but pretty regular contractions. They continued throughout the day and through this evening, but didn't change significantly. Cayo couldn't decide whether to go to work or not, but finally went off to work. Em and I went for a walk at Tryon Creek State Park where the trilliums are starting to bloom and it was crisp and cold, but beautiful and very peaceful. Then she came back to our house and took a nap.
While Emily was napping I went up to the sewing room and made the "Bitty Booties" from the pattern I downloaded months ago from Heather Bailey's blog. I made them from ultrasuede and they are OK, but a little flimsy. I think something a bit thicker like felted wool would work better.
Cayo left work early and we all had a light dinner together, then they went home to try to get some rest. I think I will head off to bed as well. We may get a call in the middle of the night.
