Time Flies!

How time flies! I can't believe that I haven't posted since 2/14 - the big event is that Rosemary Joan was born on 2/15! What an incredible 2 weeks it has been...I won't bore you with the details of every moment of every day since then, but here are a few highlights:
  • 2/27: Rosemary discovered her thumb quite by accident! She got it in her mouth, gave it several vigorous sucks, and surprised herself with the strength of her sucks. Very cute, of course, to see her startle at the sensation of sucking her own thumb!
  • 2/28: Doctor's appointment - our little piglet gained 20 ounces in just 11 days! And grew 3/4" in length. My gawd, I guess all this power-nursing is doing something!
Everyone warned me that this time goes too fast, this newborn state of bliss. At this point, I would have to agree...

Really, not at all the greatest picture. Indicitive of just how graceful I'm feeling these days, though! 39 weeks, 4 days. We are anxiously awaiting arrival of le petit (or la petite)!
Looking much cuter, Barley & Tucker hanging out under my desk. Yes, that would be 180 pounds of dog wedged under my desk. It's where they like to hang out while I'm working. Just in case, you know I want to try to go anywhere. They'll know. Not to mention, it ensures that I can't lose track of them.

37 weeks 4 days

Things are certainly moving along! I'm 37 weeks, 4 days, technically. Or thereabouts. Baby seems to be getting bigger, which is pretty much one of his/her main jobs right now. Head down, moving around, must be getting crowded in there! You maybe can't tell from the picture, but Baby has dropped - maybe about 2-3 weeks ago. The belly didn't get low so much as it got very out front.

We're getting the remnants of an ice/snow/yuck storm, and I am just grateful that Baby did not decide to come today, when the roads are no doubt dangerous!
