Happy Birthday Mom!

November 27, 2006

Today’s my mother’s birthday! I was hoping to give her another grandson for a birthday present…but…he hasn’t arrived yet. Posted above are two of my favorite pics of Mom and me.

Friday, however, I had certain symptoms (which I won’t go into detail about) that indicate that I could go into labor any time between now and this upcoming Friday.
The ball is definitely rolling….and speaking of a ball….here is the latest belly pic.


Darn near 39 weeks

November 22, 2006

Update from the doctor:

2 cm dilated, and pretty darn thin (which means that I’m more than 90% effaced)

He wasn’t even sure we’d need to schedule another appointment for next week…which means that he thinks I could go into labor any time now.

Here’s another picture for those of you who like to see me in this state. Personally, I’m ready to be done with it. I just want to meet my son 🙂

I’ve got bangs!

I treated myself to a professional haircut today! And I decided that I wanted bangs.

Here’s me at 37.5 weeks

I thought I’d share a front view this time.

And my typical side view.

Hi all,

Thanks for being patient with my sporadic posting lately. I’ve had lots going on. This past weekend, Josh and I were able to just hang out together the whole time.

We actually went to a “big” theater to watch the movie “The Departed.” By “big” theater, I mean that it cost us more than $1.75 each to buy a ticket. Usually, we see movies at the “Cheap” theater only.

I found that “The Departed” was Shakespear-like in some ways, but I’ll not spoil the movie for those who haven’t seen it yet. I highly recommend it for those who are sick of the same plot lines in movies.

We slept until 9:30 am, had breakfast together, washed some baby clothes in expensive baby detergent, and then we sat down to watch…on TV…the NDSU Bison play the U of MN Gophers in football for the first time in 69 years.

After watching NDSU almost beat the Gophers with a 9-10 score, Josh and I went to Home Depot to get some much needed things for the house…it’s odd how much we spend on “Much-needed house items” now. We also traded a number of Josh’s X-box games for store credit at a local Video Game store.

We purchased a Game Cube game that we both have wanted for a while now, and then we played that together the rest of the evening.

Sunday: Josh played Bass Guitar in church, while I stayed at home to do more laundry. We played some more Game Cube when Josh came home, and then I took a well-needed nap. I woke up just in time for half-time in the Vikings vs. Seahawks football game.

After the Vikings won, Josh and I decided to go out to eat to finally celebrate the fact that he succesfully defended his thesis two weeks ago. After dinner, we spent about 2 1/2 hours at Barnes & Noble.

Overall- this weekend was perfect! I enjoyed every minute of it. I enjoy it when Josh and can spend time together doing things that we both like to do.

And finally, because I told my mother that I’d post another belly picture, here’s a pic of me today, at 33 weeks along. Notice the goofball in the background.
