I’ll stick mostly to photos for today’s update, as I seem to have come down with something (a bad cold during a heat wave is just a cruel joke, don’t you think?) and have used up most of my usual writing time with baths and naps. No complaints there!
Things have been feeling increasingly settled over the past week, and I think Annabelle is feeling it, too. We’re falling into a nice groove and sleep, my patience, and all other things are improving somewhat. Of course Annabelle still does not ever want to sleep, and midway through dinner every evening insists that, “It’s not almost time for bed!” No one has to mention bed, but it’s clear she feels that the time is near and she’s not happy about it.
The birth supplies are gathered and ready to go, which our midwives will confirm tomorrow. I’ll be 38 weeks this weekend, so we’re ready for this baby any time he or she wants to come! The car seat is ready to install, the clothes are washed and hung, and the diapers are folded. Annabelle talks constantly about the baby and the things he or she will or won’t be able to do when they’re born. She’s pretty accurate, so it will be interesting to see how in line her sibling turns out to be with her expectation. I think our decision to leave gender a surprise has confused her pronoun usage even more, as she now talks about “sheorhe” frequently.
Anyway, on to the mamatography photos!
The 4th was a day of extreme sleep deprivation, so we thought it best to skip the fireworks. A bit pathetic on our first holiday in DC, no? We were at least American enough to eat some apple pie!
Since berries tend to retain a lot of pesticide residue and organic was unavailable on Guam, Annabelle has just discovered the joys of fresh berries. She remains skeptical about blackberries.
This silly series is from the weekend when we checked out the boats on the Naval Academy in Annapolis.
Most of this week’s photos seem to involve food. This was a Friday afternoon lunch date in DC.
Somehow this is the only photo I got on this week’s baking day, but it involved a double batch of yogurt, fresh bread, and banana muffins. Yum!
Annabelle thinks my glasses are hilarious.
…and that’s our week. Now tell me about yours! Feel free to share the latest in the comments, or link up with a post of your own.
