week 22! heading to MAUI!
It's Monday and I almost forgot to add this Monday check in today.
Yesterday Andrew came over and dropped of a bunch of baby stuff. It's crazy to have our living room filled with all this stuff!
We have a baby bathtub, a little vibrating baby chair, a baby swing, a floor mat with toys hanging on a bar, a craddle, and a little cushy car for the baby to sit in that is so cute, and a little plastic chair to set him in too. Crazy!
Here is a photo of Pretty Girl taking over the vibrating chair. She is so cute in it. She was in there all day long yesterday.
I turned on the vibration for a while and I think she might have felt that it was her mama. Not sure. She didn't send me a memo.
But she was purring. So that lets me know that it was making her happy. I love that.
I put double sided tape all over the inside of the craddle. I read that the cat needs to figure out that it's not a fun place to go into and that tape can help make it uncomfortable. I just hope she doesn't jump in there when we are in hawaii and get stuck! We might put it in the garage until we get back!!
here is the baby center details of what the baby is up to:
At 11 inches (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. His lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and he's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath his gums. His eyes have formed, but his irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside your womb, you'd be able to spot the fine hair (lanugo) that covers his body and the deep wrinkles on his skin, which he'll sport until he adds a padding of fat to fill them in. Inside his belly, his pancreas — essential for the production of some important hormones — is developing steadily.
Tomorrow we go to Maui for 8 days. Our babymoon!
Looking forward to wearing the bikini and showing off the belly.
We mailed out absentee votes in for OBAMA.
I have a feeling that there might be republicans who shred our ballots.
Since the Al Gore debacle I don't trust the voting system.
Our little one was growing in my belly through the olympics and the fastest swimmer on the planet, an earthquake, the first half white/ half blck man to run for President and inspire a Nation, a trip to Maui, and Jerry reading the constitution to him !
