Fouth of July and 37 Weeks!

I hope you had a wonderful 4th!  We got together with the birthday girl for the first time since Alex was born, maybe even before! 

Happy 28th Birthday Amber!  Hope it was a good one!

Yesterday I was in for my 37 week appointment.  I wasn't going to let them check me - but you know, curiosity...So I know I'm 1cm dilated, soft, but not thinning.  Which is OK by me!  Some progress is good, but we don't want too much till after Saturday.  The big wedding day.  Anytime after that, he is FREE to make his appearance.

Which is good - I think he is dropping even more, and he's giving me LOTS of pressure.  Love this baby already, but he can come out when ready! 

Hope everything is well in cyberspace!  Anything interesting going on?

Kids say the darndest things...Alex edition

Since we moved into this house almost 2 years ago, Alex has had an obsession with the boy next door, Andre.  He's 16.  But at least she isn't going to marry him anymore (a post for another day).

Anyway, here is her latest tale:

Daddy: Are you and Matt playing with Andre?
Alex: No, he is in Japan.
Daddy: Japan?  Are you sure?
Alex: Yeah, but he should be back in about an hour.
Mommy: An hour?  Hmm, Maybe I should ask Mrs Ruth where he is.  
Alex: You can't she drove him to Japan.

Bad Blogger and 36 Weeks

Boy, remembering to update this thing is harder than I thought. But, I'll use the preggo brain card on this one.

36 weeks!!   Yikes!!  Other than SPD this time again, and Braxton Hicks contractions, this has been a pretty uneventful pregnancy.

 So, what to do when your 36 weeks?  I'll tell you what I should be doing: cleaning, washing laundry, and generally laying low.  After all, we don't want to go into labor before July 10 and my sisters wedding.  What did I ACTUALLY do?  Take the kids to the zoo - by myself!! Yes, I'm crazy!! But it was fun!

And - we are going walking around a park tomorrow with some other mom's.   Looking forward to that, too, even though it is gonna be blasted hot!!  About 78* by 11:00.  oh well. 

And the 4th of July coming up!!  We were supposed to be camping, but dad gave himself a hernia and is now awaiting surgery.  So, BBQ at the sisters house!!  We'll have to see about fire works, since it is so hot. 

Time to wrap this up and lay down for a bit.  In ending - what are your plans for the 4th?
