Well, turn your heads already so I can have this baby! I have given up trying to figure out what he might be waiting for and actually lied about how far along I was to someone today. I am even starting to get looks from folks here, who are so laid-back about pregnancy and other such topics.
Granted, I am getting most of my nesting urges settled and even Peter has stepped it up with regards to baby preparations. Heck, we even have batteries IN the swing and the girls have tested it several times. Thankfully, not with the cat in it. I cleaned it once, don't want to do it again until the baby has actually used it.
And, really, nothing else going on. The girls were off from school the whole week and helped me nest whilst working on math (Cait) and reading (Kelsey). Nothing like the bribe of 30 minutes of that evil Disney channel to get them going on chores. Of course, had we known I would not go into labor, could have taken a trip somewhere. I used to be worried that I would have the baby too soon (not sure why, worried anyway) and now I am beginning to think we will be lucky if he shows up before our cadre of visitors in March! I am kidding, well, sort of.
Oh, and the snow is gone (except the black yucky stuff piled in parking lots) and the rain is back. Boy, I sure missed the sideways rain (NOT) and the lack of motivation it gives us to go anywhere or do anything. So, I will pray for a little more snow before spring comes along (in June) and hope all is well in your neck of the woods!
Since I forgot to include earlier...here is a photo of the girls from the first night of the Winter Carnival in Reykjavik. We didn't make it too terribly much longer, but we tried. It was just a wee bit too cold and the dancers took much longer to arrive than originally scheduled. The irony? We looked out our (new) bedroom window when we got home and realized we could see most of dancing and pond action from the relative warmth of our house. Live and learn!
