This winter has been surprisingly mild (watch, just because I said this, tomorrow is going to snow like crazy and be something like 0F, I guarantee it): with the exception of the snowfall a couple of weeks ago, it's been really warm and pleasant! Yesterday was close to 55F when we went to the park to feed the birds and play on the swings!
My sweet girl found one injured bird with a broken leg and kept trying to feed it first before all the others!
She wanted me to go on the swing, so she could push me!
So as I said in the last post, we had some very exciting guests on Sunday: Sasha's cousin Emily (or second cousin, or maybe even third, I have no idea at this point). The girls had such a fun time playing together, and we adults did too!
Sasha woke up yesterday morning with goo coming out of her eye. It wasn't really even all that red at first, so I was holding out hope it wasn't that. But as soon as I pulled down her lower eyelid, there was no doubt that it was in fact pink eye (her first too!) We went to see the pediatrician and she's on antibiotics now, but this morning, her second eye was pink too, boo! She's in a great mood most of the time (except when she hears "It's bedtime" or "Dinner/lunch is ready", hehehe), acting like her normal happy self, so I'm hoping this thing is gone very very soon. Having sick kiddos is no fun!!
We did have Sasha's cousin Emily (and her parents, since six-year-olds aren't really allowed to drive) over on Sunday and we all had such a fantastic time hanging out... I don't know why we don't do it more often! I will do a separate post on that in a bit.
I had my bi-weekly (already!!) OB visit and found out that I passed the dreaded glucose tolerance test!! I was so excited and relieved: I can eat chocolate and strawberries, and most importantly, don't have to prick my finger three times a day to check my sugar. Yay!!
So I thought I'd do an update on this little guy while I'm at it.
I am 31 weeks pregnant and have a very very pointy belly! Feeling pretty good, just really big already. I get tired pretty easily, which is quite annoying, but really not the end of the world (just makes me wonder what it'll be like when I'm, say, 39 weeks pregnant!) Getting up to pee four times in the middle of the night is also starting to get to me, but I've decided it's my body's way of preparing me for not sleeping once the babe is here (and I've done such a good job trying to forget how painful those nights were, sigh)
I had another growth u/s a couple of weeks ago (at 29 weeks) and he was measuring right on track at 3lbs4oz (so 55th percentile), so he might not even be quite as big as the doctors were anticipating at first. I have another appointment in two weeks (at 33 weeks), so we'll see how he's growing then.
We did a tour of the hospital last weekend and it was a lovely (although smaller) facility. I'm starting to get really excited for him to get here!!
And no, still no name. We keep going over lists websites and reading up on names, and while we do have a few options, none of them seem to fit yet. A friend just sent me a few more websites I haven't seen yet, so I'm excited to check them out and see if anything stands out to us.
... when papa is home. Now that I can't stand on my head, climb under the table, and pretend to be a frog, I'm afraid I've become the boring parent (but to be fair, I've never actually did any of the above mentioned things). We like to read together, play "quiet" (and not so quiet) games, practice writing letters and numbers, do puzzles, cook (and "cook") together.... you get the idea, things that don't involve me lifting or running (except up and down the stairs).
But when papa is home, all bets are off. Yes, they read books and pracitce writing together (and papa's favorite childhood movie was apparently Alladin), and do puzzles, but papa can do so much more!
Yup, still terrified of the sparklers - silly kid!
This one doesn't really need any explanation, does it?
Papa tried on the Moby wrap - he says it's super comfy (even with the 30lbs toddler) and Sasha wholeheartedly agrees
Planking baby - this could've been either Sasha's or papa's idea - your guess is as good as mine!
Ok, this was before papa came down - we were watching ice skating and this was Sasha's impression of the couple's skating
And then she made papa twirl her around - good times!
I need to go somewhere amazingly fun with her, and soon, or she'll think I was no fun at all when she looks back at these pictures in the future!!
