Anyone have a time turner I could borrow?

I guess it would only help me if I also knew how to apparate.
Amy with baby Peter at 36 weeks
Amy has under one week left - assuming she goes to her due date...

Ruby is so excited.

So am I... actually all of the Zimbelman's in Provo are excited.
We check our phones for texts... ask how everyone is feeling...
(Jordan is feeling as well as can be expected)
but I feel torn.
I too have one week left until I fly out there.
10 days there and then home.
Not enough time there. A long time to be away from home.
Not enough time to snuggle a sweet newborn and play with Ruby.
A long time to be away from my best friend.
Not enough time to help my daughter recover and adjust to two little ones.
A long time to be away from my own baby and her busy and stressful life.

Mark and Jennifer will join me for the weekend, after a week.
Then three will go home and four will remain.
And a little bit of my heart will remain there too.
I'm glad Lynn will be coming soon after I leave.
I know Amy will be in good hands.
All will be well... but I will miss them even more
because there will be more to miss.

I'm assuming someone will get back to me about apparating....
'cause then I wouldn't need a time turner...

You are so lucky that you get to be out there for 10 days. Are you hoping to make it for the birth? We are also anxiously awaiting his arrival, and I love the name Peter!

The plan is for him to come on Saturday... that's our plan anyway, he may have other plans. While I will not be AT the birth he should be born while I'm there, if not before. Amy's doctor is willing to work with us.

The Zimbelmans in Illinois are excited too! Have a safe trip!

If you figure it out, let me know. And I sure know the part about the more there are, the more to miss, the more risk there is in life, the more potential for love equals the more potential for heartache. Enjoy, enjoy. So sweet to spend those first days when a baby is so fresh and the feelings of mom and dad are so tender!
