Well it has just been too long since our last post so I figured we were due. I don't have any overly-thrilling news to report, other than the baby kicking me when I give S. a hug. That kid is still rocking and rolling like crazy in there! After we learned that Erin and Sara's water broke almost a full three weeks early, we realized that, now in our third trimester, it is entirely possible for the same thing to happen to us some time in the near future. The planner in S. is scared out of her wits. Me, I'm more of a go-with-the-flow--but plan just in case sort of person. So I'm not overly-freaking, but I do admit that the rash of early births around here has me a bit nervous! We don't even have a mattress yet for our crib! But I also know that this babe would have everything it needed for the first month or so of life without needing to buy anything off of our registry---us, diapers, a co-sleeper, and a lactating mommy!
Just as a side note, I'm really glad to see that mainstream media (The Today Show, NPR) is at least talking about the presence of BPAs in hard plastic, especially in baby bottles. Making people aware that this may even be a risk, however remote, is so important. I think Born Free will be doing a lot of business at Big Baby Store now that these stories have aired!
I did just come back from a three 1/2-day trip to FL to visit my grandfather. Ironically, the temps there and here were almost the same, but the difference--lots and lots of blooming flowers and trees, and of course--the beach! Two more days of vacation before I'm back to work (blah) and S. is on vacation. Her goal: complete the nursery. Like I mentioned, these early births got Mama in a panic. But somehow it just works--right?!
