    Today is day 17!

    I can not believe it, feels like time has been dragging on forever.

    Tonight my son (age6) and I will be preparing our incubator for lockdown. You know... bumping up the humidity, I want to weigh the eggs to make sure I was on track for weight loss, and will candle them to see what we can see.

    So egg-citing! Our first hatch! I hope it all goes smoothly and that a few of them hatch. Half would be nice considering this is a learning curve for us this time.

    However, I feel pretty confident!

    Wish us luck!
