Seriously, I'm Supposed to Wake Him??

"I know I have to wake him because he hasn't eaten in 3 hours but please, look at that face." (I don't know what photo went with that comment. I originally took these photos using Blogpress Lite but it would not post and I could not save the photos to my camera roll. Luckily I took screen shots of the pics and was able to salvage some of the images.)

"He likes to go to deep sleep around 6:30am so we are getting used to sleeping in until 8:30 or 9. Not food for planning daytime activities but oh well. I think he'll change his schedule next week." (Ya, that didn't happen.)

"Highly suspicious... Shifty eyes..."

Sideways smirk! Ok time to get ready to meet the cousins and aunts and uncles at grandma and grandpa Greene's.

Baby Kicks 12

The air outside is fresh and clean, cool and green, like camping. You know that moment in the morning when the sun has just risen and the breeze carries a hint of warmth on it's back and you know that if you don't get out of the tent right now, you will be sweating bullets any second.

Time to rest is sweet and I intend to savor every moment before Connor comes to play. And we have time. I had a wonderful birthday July 5 Tuesday. Slept in until 10:30am recovering from fireworks with friends in the valley.

Had a delicious lunch with my mom and dad and hubby at Babbo's at Stanford shopping center after which we went to Macy's and were blessed with a generous grandmother to be who had not yet bought any "fun" things for baby.

While leaving the center we stopped by Sprinkles and had the surreal experience of using the secret word to get a free cupcake. All four of us!! That was fun. And decadent dark chocolate. Mmm.

The end to my birthday was a nice quiet BBQ with friends, talking and sharing corn, zucchini and rib-eyes. A wonderful day.

July 6 - my second day of time off for baby prep - a quick doctor check at 10:15 am turned into hospital food for lunch (which was pretty good penne chicken Alfredo) and testing until 2:30pm. My blood pressure and heart rate were very high and they wanted to rule out preeclampsia.

Connor's fine and I'm fine but his amniotic fluids are still around 8 so we will check again this Friday. I dropped off some disability papers at the medical records department then went and got some free gas and car washes. A pretty successful day. Rested and slept and drooled on my pillow until it was time to go to bed. Ha ha, what's up with drooling when you try to sleep during the day?

July 7 - 8:12 am and I'm still in bed. It was 7:56 when I started writing about the air outside. Gonna rest a bit more since I still get up every hour or half hour out of habit now I think. But I was able to breathe and I praise God for that. I had no stuffiness or swollen throat. The end is near. The plan is to drop off some clothes for a friend, walk in the pool, then be here when they come to fix our kitchen lights. That's the haps in the Baby Kicks world.

First Day..


Today is the first day of the rest of our lives. Of course everyday is the first day of the rest of our lives, but today, right now, is the first moment of being totally ready to go in case Connor decides to join us.

Today was my last day at work - mixed feelings - I love my job and everyone I work with at AAA. I'm taking two weeks off before the supposed due date of July 14th, praying that he comes early. So the next several days will be spent resting and nesting, doing necessary check ups and exercises, and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the most special little guy I've ever known.

Even though he keeps me up all night - every hour on the hour - I love him.
Even though he punches me and kicks me and stabs me all the time - I love him.

We are ready for you Connor - come on out. Ok wait, we aren't ready. A few more days would be ok. Ok, we have no idea what we have gotten into - you can just stay in there if you want... ;)
