Emma is napping, Scott is working and I have nothing much to do. I need to vaccuum but it would probably wake up Emma and I have no desire to have a grumpy baby on my hands this evening. We are headed to my friend and her new hubbie’s house for a cook out to show off their new grill (her words, not mine).
Monday the dr. said I had not dilated anymore and the head actually seemed less applied than last time although she thought that a little hard to believe it seemed. So, as far as I’m concerned, we are good to go. I’m 34 weeks now and they wouldn’t put me in the hospital if I happened to go into labor and the baby has like a 99% chance of excellent survival so I’m not really doing anything extra at this point. If I get tired, I sit down. If I’m really tired, I don’t ever get up. I still am trying to drink a good dose of water though. I can tell I get much more tired if I get dehydrated. I think I’ve gained about 23 pounds now. Not too bad. A lot of my maternity clothes are starting to get small. I’ve already started making a pile of never going to wear that again. I am getting more ready for her to come. We bought some pictures last night at Target for the nursery and today I bought the sheer fabric for Mom to make the curtains around the closet. We took the doors off, painted the walls the same and put the dresser in the closet with the changing table on top since that is such a small room. I like the way it looks. I’m hoping my aunt and uncle are ready to give up my cousin’s crib when Mom and Dad visit at the beginning of November. It would be great to have it before Christmas. SIL is letting me use my niece’s bassinet, so we don’t really NEED it, it would just be nice to finish off the room.
Tomorrow is our baby shower SIL is giving us at the church. I’m excited but for some reason I don’t feel like we need very much. I know we’ll get plenty though and it will be quite a feat to get it all organized when we get it home. Especially since Scott is working every day next week.
I made a list the other day of every word I could remember that Emma could say and added anything I heard her say as the day went on. There were over 150 words on there. Much more than I thought. I need to put that in her baby book or type them out here so I have it somewhere. It will be interesting to compare Lexi and Emma later. I know probably a big no-no but doesn’t it happen anyway?
