I saw the doctor yesterday. Baby girl is growing right on track. And apparently very comfy in there. The doctor will be surprised if she shows up before 39 weeks (I'm 37). Drat. I was hoping to be done. I feel like my life is sort of on hold at the moment. I have managed to accomplish basically everything I wanted to before her arrival. So now I just need her to arrive. While we have been waiting we have been doing a lot of movie watching in our pjs.
I'm not proud of it. But that's about all I have some days. Most days. I'm tired and worn out. Poor Cormac misses his mom I think. I do too.
We did manage to get enough snow to finally take Cormac out in the sled that he got for Christmas. I pulled him down the driveway to the hill. The sled then didn't go down the hill on it's own so I had to pull it both down and up the hill. We only did two trips down the hill before I decided it wasn't worth it. We were back in where it was warm within 15 minutes. Maybe next time Ammon can take him.
We have been preparing for baby girl, of course. In the meantime we dug out all the binkies. Cormac rejected his binkie at 7 months and never looked back, until recently. I had to hide them all again because suddenly he thinks he needs one. Strange kid. And the shoes? Well, Target was having a sale on ruby slippers for less than $4. I couldn't resist. I know she won't be able to wear them until she's 3 or 4, but they were so cute. So I brought them home. They are a couple sizes too big for Cormac, but he found them and needed them. He has been wearing them around the house a lot lately. In fact he wore them during his nap one day because I couldn't get them off of him. Crazy kid. I think Ammon has hidden them away. I have tried to raise his son right. I really have.
And in parting, I tried to get a few pictures of Cormac smiling. He really does smile, but not when you bring out a camera. This is the best that I've gotten.
He's talking more and more. That has been fun for us. The other day I was taking a drink and it went down wrong. As I was coughing to get the water out Cormac came in and started patting the back of my leg and asking, "Are you okay?" I about choked again. He's really growing up these last few weeks. I have a feeling that's going to continue when number 2 arrives.
And that my friends is the conclusion of this random and pointless post. I hope you enjoyed your glance into our little life.
