Hope most of you (US ladies!) are having a good long weekend!
DH is so ill, like flu, can’t keep anything down, has the shakes, hot one second, cold the next….awfulness! He woke up with that this morning, yuck. He has tomorrow off already thankfullly.
Had a great weekend, talked with BIL last night for a long time while SIL was pumping, they have started to introduce nephew to breatmilk through a stomach tube? They learned that his minimum stay in the NICU will be 7 weeks, if all goes well. SIL will be living in Ronald McDonald house across from hospital, and BIL may go back to work later this week, if not next and then commute (hospital is 2 hours from home, 3 hourse from his work) back and forth on weekends over the next few weeks. Nephew is getting stronger every day, outlook looks very good now, he just needs more time! Talking with BIL finally cooled both DH and I from feeling so down about being told not to come, I am officially going to buy an iphone so we can use facetime….I have a work phone I will lose when on mat leave, so was debating between another blackberry, samsung tab/phone thing, or iphone. Will be great to feel a little more connected to them from so far away. DH and I were originally going to begin driving out East around July 24th, but I suggested to DH he could leave earlier in July (anytime, he is a teacher) and I could come out later either drivng with other family (wedding on the 28th, other BIL!!) or fly one-way, stay for the 3 weeks we already planned for, and then drive back with him. That way he can get more time at home and spend with our nephew and his family! Will see as we get closer to summer!
I had my friends baby shower today, the one I was worried about telling two friends there, the Momma didn’t care, but I ended up running into one when I was leaving my parents (we grew up around the corner from each other, both don’t live in town anymore and happened to be at our parents at the same time!) I stopped at her place as she was leaving, she is pregnant too! Why she told me (6 weeks along, like JUST found out) I don’t know, but I know she trusts me and won’t tell others, so it was SO fun stepping out of the car to hug her and of course let her see my bump! She is getting married Oct 6th, so add a 12th wedding to our list for this year, eep! The other friend I timed my arrival to the shower perfectly, we arrived at the same time and I told her out front, she lost it (happily) and it was so fun to sit with both of them, and the Momma the shower was for, the four of us got a nice picture together!
I took a bump pic for 20w, but forgot my memory card wasn’t in the camera and don’t know how to transfer pics from the small camera memory to the card, and I have no idea where the cord is (older camera) so not sure if I will need to do a re-do!
I went yard-saleing with my Grandmother yesterday who loved announcing to nearly everyone who looked her way that I was carrying her great-granddaughter, lol.
I found three old records (25 cents each) with old school sesame street stuff on them, I have to take a picture to show you all, we may frame one and use it in the nursery, it’s just awesome…..what a score! I was such a sesame street kid. SO funny when you go to yard sales and people selling baby or kids stuff just assume you want what they have….99% of the time….noooo thank-you, people are not clean enough, and it was SO funny seeing some of the old car seats and strollers people are asking for money for….like….take them to the dump!
Anyone that saw me last weekend to this weekend (sports friends I see every Sunday) said I got noticeably bigger in a week, fun fun!! Still have a few more people to tell, but I decided today how I will break the news on facebook! I am going to wait until the first day of summer with a fun line about how summer is here, and how it won’t be too long before the next season comes along and we welcome our baby! Something simple….I am getting bothered why I haven’t put anything on facebook yet….people are funny.
shimmer -I hope you are ok after your fb status update from Friday! LOVE your pics! Hope your boys are doing well!
I will switch usernames now and vote another boy for the twins!
audreysdance -hope you are also doing well after you’re little scare, and nothing else has happened since!
I think that’s enough rambling from me!
