Ten on Tuesday.

1. Tonight I get to start watching American Idol! They've eliminated the crap and are down to the top 24. Here's where I step in. Except for the hospital hiatus, I guess.

2. Alla is obsessed with Color Wonder. Obsessed I tell you. She likes the page to have a border to color in and some hidden things that she can color over to reveal.

3. Left on the to-do list: pack hospital bags, finish some scrapbook stuff that I'll probably forget about otherwise, and just generally make it look like there's supposed to be a baby here. Maybe get out the swing, the bathtub, the bouncy seat, the mobile and gymini. Yep, clutter up the house a little more and we'll be all set.


4. Maybe the full moon on Thursday will bring on some dilation, says Mel, who will probably have her baby then. Let's see...when I was pregnant with Alla, my water broke the morning after a full moon. So, a girl can hope.


5. What Alla told me the other night while I'm lotioning her up and simultaneously pinching her cute butt: "You can't pinch my buns-hon. I know they're cute, but you can't pinch them." We've said 'buns, hon' to her so many times that she must think that's the official term for butt.

6. I just finished a s'more and am watching Runway Moms in the background.

7. So far The Body Shop's vitamin C night cream is divine, and maybe I'm just in a non-acne phase of my pregnancy (thus far, there hadn't been such a thing), but my skin is suddenly looking up.

8. Right now my back is aching. See how dedicated I am to Ten on Tuesday.

9. Alla requested that I take a picture of her at lunch. This is what she wanted me to photograph.


10. On tonight's menu is lasagna. Making one for tonight and one to freeze. Yum!

I can't believe how close you are. I'm keeping my fingers crossed your little one makes an appearance soon

I remember Fantasia being crowned American Idol the night Maya was born. I was in labor and she was singing her brains out on the tv in front of me.

We love color wonder here too. It's awesome! I love that picture of her spoon in her mouth. I think she is showing how silly she can be! Maybe the eclipse tomorrow night can help out with getting that baby out. An eclipse and a full moon-that's gotta be worth something, right?

What a silly girl you have on your hands!

Lasagna?! Sure, that is what I was thinking of making for your "moms on wheels" meal! Since you will already have one in your freezer, I need another idea. Hmmmmm...
