Ten on Tuesday.

1. Yup, still pregnant.

2. Would you believe it's 49 degrees here? That means, no hats, no gloves, and you're almost too hot unless you unzip your coat. We're going outside for scooter time and splashing in puddles in rainboots after nap.
3. I'm kind of sick of walking. It's not working anyway. Better to just have fun with my daughter.

4. It's a perfect day to have a baby.

5. Next Monday, not so much. Supposed to be a big March storm. Well, let's rephrase. It just wouldn't be a good day to take the baby home, but if the baby wants to come out, say, tomorrow, or even Thursday, we'd have plenty of time to get home before the silly storm.
6. This is what we got in the way of Easter Bunny photos this year. Alla was super excited, even wanted to give the Easter Bunny an egg. But they situated the darn bunny in front of the playground, so she really just wanted to go play. He suddenly didn't seem so snuggly and cute after all. She was pretty concerned with where he went when we were on our way out and she wanted to wave good-bye. A carrot break, of course.
7. So looking forward to American Idol tonight. Who are your favorites? I like the Carly Simon chick, and the teenage boy who sings amazingly well.
8. It's pretty unnerving and exciting at the same time to feel a bit like a ticking time-bomb, like at any moment your life will change.
9. And yet to feel like your life won't be changing anytime soon.
10. Happy Birthday, Samantha!

I was just thinking, it's getting a little quiet over there. And I'm ready for Pondegore to be here. It kind of sounds like you are, too!! Today is most certainly a perfect day to have a baby. Go J!! (Have I said "Happy Pushing" yet? Will there be pushing after a C-section? AM I geting too personal? I better stop typing.)

Thinking of you honey and sending lots of labor vibes from CA!!!

I think of it more like a pinata than a time-bomb. When the pinata finally goes, there's joy and excitement and goodies everywhere! And today is a wonderful day for all that!

I like the overly happy "dish detergent commercial" nanny (Brooke) and the overly happy young dude also. I'm also a fan of the guy in dreads w/ his guitar. It would be nice to see someone win that was more than just a good singer....

I'm hoping for a Lucky 13 arrival of Pondegore!

Was Alla afraid of the Easter Bunny or was she just more interested in the play area? Thinking good thoughts for you!

Cathy Bolander said...

Can't believe this baby hasn't made his/her debut yet. Good thoughts & good things come to those who wait, but I think you have waited long enough.
