We have a Monday morning tradition of going to the Donut Professor for a little Monday morn celebration. I’ve been wanting to get a picture since I’m not sure if we’ll make it much once baby girl arrives. Drew is a fan of any donut with sprinkles, while Isaac usually annihilates as many donut “decimals” as possible before we leave (on average half a dozen, maybe). It’s just fun to be out together, to chat, and to start the week off right- with a white creme eclair.
Isn’t I-man growing up fast? He’s such a little man these days.
Also of newsworthy note is that I have started labor! So this baby should be coming in the next week or two. That’s right…with Isaac’s delivery I had a very funny pattern of laboring every night for a week before he was delivered. I am happy to report that I have had fairly strong and regular labor both Sunday and Monday night of this week. Thankfully I’m on to it this time so I don’t waste half the night walking, timing, packing, etc. I just go to sleep and figure if it’s the real thing it will wake me. I did wake a few times each night from the strength of the contractions, but faithfully each morning they have stopped. So here we go again. My midwife says I have a very active uterus, explaining the fact that I have had regular contractions since 28 weeks! Downside: 6 nights of labor. Upside: I was dilated to six before I hit “hard” labor with Isaac. You win some, you lose some, eh?
And last but not least…
Me: Um…more like my shoulders. (Geez- what do you say? It’s probably about time to correct the pronunciation of that word, or just teach him something else? It’s just still so funny to me. For the first “nibble” story, read the bottom post here.)
