Days To Go!
Tim and I made a dent in the check list last night, but as we worked I kept finding things to add to the check list. I don’t know if we will ever be ready for this baby. I have been feeling better this week than I have in the past few weeks. I am still getting nauseas and the contractions are getting stronger but I have more energy. It feels great to be out of bed or off the couch and be active again. We have even been able to go for walks after dinner which Michael and Lucy love.
Michael has been great this week too, which makes taking care of him and breathing through contraction considerably easier. He is now able to climb back down after getting up on the couch so I don’t have to lift him down all the time. Lucy has been helpful by entertaining Michael too. It is so much fun to watch them play together. I used to think that Lucy just tolerated him, but now I think she enjoys playing with him. (It helps that Michael shares all his food with her 🙂 ) Michael is really into books lately. Normally when he is quiet I get nervous and assume he is getting into something he shouldn’t. Now, when he is quiet I usually find him sitting in a corner looking at a book. He is going to be a little genius I just know it.
