FOR TODAY (10.07.11)
Outside my window...Squirrels are frolicking through the grass collecting acorns. Neighborhood children are playing at the playground.
I am thinking...about how much needs to be done before the new baby arrives.
I am thankful...for an impromptu visit from my parents earlier this week. They decided to visit my little family for their 30th wedding anniversary.
From the learning rooms...Little Ish's language is exploding. I haven't done an official word count yet but just off the top of my head I got to 40+ words. He also has figured out that there are better things to do with blocks than to throw them or eat them.
In the kitchen...there is a lot of measuring of food. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes a couple weeks ago. So far the diet has been going really well.
I am wearing...a blue maternity dress and black maternity leggings.
I am creating...lots of little knitted things.
I am going...to the farm to pick up our CSA share this evening.
I am wondering...how long disputing 2 incorrect medical bills will take.
I am reading...Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding
I am hoping...this baby decides that being breech is not a good idea.
I am looking forward to...a visit from my sister in a few weeks.
I am hearing...sweet little sleep noises through the baby monitor.
Around the house...there is lots to do. Diapers need to be removed from the dryer and more laundry switched over. I will hopefully get all of the newborn and 0-3 month clothes washed and put away this weekend.
I am pondering...very little. Head colds and pondering don't mix.
One of my favorite things...is a mug of hot milk sprinkled with cinnamon.
A few plans for the rest of the week:The week is almost over. Dinner with Ish's family tonight and dinner with friends tomorrow night. Sunday, we rest.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
