James bonding with Brees, December 22, 2010

Baby Rees is due any time now. I can’t wait to be an aunt, I can’t wait for my sister to be a mom and I can’t wait for my children to meet their cousin.

According to NASA, Saturday, “a full Moon of rare size and beauty will rise in the east at sunset. It’s a super ‘perigee moon’—the biggest in almost 20 years.”

In addition to my sister I have two very close friends past due with their babies—they, too, are waiting.


Some people believe more babies are born when there’s a full moon. I hope this is true. I hope this Saturday brings a big, beautiful moon and big, beautiful babies.

“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers—strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” —Barbara Katz Rothman
