Believe me, today's the day

Everyone get ready, because today is the day. You've been captivated by Rishi's magic spreadsheet. Now I want to introduce you to Amanda's magic cookies.

Last night Amanda brought us some homemade cookies. According to Amanda, these are the same cookies she made and ate the night before she gave birth to Lily (well, not the same exact cookies, but you know what I mean). The day after making the cookies she had a doctor's appointment and went straight to the hospital from her appointment. Obviously this time around the magic was already working before Amanda made the cookies (you can't stop the magic) because Brooke already had a doctor's appointment scheduled for today! So clearly the baby is coming today. What other conclusion can we come to? Last night Brooke ate the magic cookies (all 10 of them - or was it 15?) and is now letting the magic work.

Ivy will share her birthday, May 9, with J.M. Barrie (of Peter Pan fame), Sophie Scholl (we happened to just watch a movie about her, which I recommend. Coincidence? I don't think so), Billy Joel, and hockey player Steve Yzerman.

I'll see you all on the other side! Go magic cookies, go!

If it really works, it will be one of the funniest things ever.

If it really works, then I would like to suggest that it's possible that these "magic cookies" are laced with something a la "magic brownies"--except instead of weed, the secret ingredient is oxytocin, or whatever the labor hormone is.

That cookie looks yummy.

A couple of comments:

(1.) Last time the cookies worked their magic, they were also made on a Tuesday in May, sending the very pregnant eater of said cookies into labor on a Wednesday, like today.

(2.) If they don't work, that doesn't necessarily mean they aren't magic. Then I'd suggest serving Brooke some of Maria's "magic enchilada casserole & refried beans". It's the good stuff -- we welcomed Lily into the world less than seven hours later.

She did just eat some of Amy's "magic" taco casserole--does that count?

Actually, I don't think it does, because I would be very surprised if Ivy comes today.

Well, hate to disappoint you all, but it's 11pm and no sign of labor yet... it's not looking like today's the day!

The cookies and taco casserole were yummy though!
