Yup, Still Pregnant

I removed the ticker because after our due date, it cruelly began counting UP. That's so wrong. Baby has until Dec. 7th to choose his birth day, and then we get induced at a hospital.

In the meantime, Maddie continues to be absolutely adorable, of course. She's gotten to visit with her Aunt Katrina and Uncle Kenny last weekend, and she's been playing with Grandma Jean and Grandpa Rob for the last few days!

As you can see, she's thoroughly enjoying all the attention and doesn't seem bothered in the slightest that her pesky little brother hasn't chosen to make his presence known!

Guess Again?

See that ticker? It's down to 8 days now, and today was the last date/weight guess. So ha! You're all losers! Wait, I'm the one who's still ridiculously pregnant and downing quarts of labor tea, evening primrose oil, and crawling around on my hands and knees to try and motivate this kid to come join us out here. Hmmmmm...perhaps YOU are not the loser.

But a few people have told me that they're sad that no one won. Or, more specifically, that THEY didn't win. Well, me too. So, if you want, feel free to guess again! Baby Boy Bailey is due 11/23, seems to have recovered from his bout of making us think he'd arrive early, and is quite cozy. We may not see him until Christmas. Meanwhile, I may have to invest in a muumuu in order to leave the house, because I am gigantic, as my friend Fran screamed at me in Federal Hill the other night while I was waddling to the thai restaurant for spicy curry, all in an attempt to induce labor.

So, when's he coming and what's he going to weigh? If anyone guesses more than 10lbs, you are instantly disqualified from all possible winnings, and possibly from our friendship.

Don't know what I'm talking about? Check out the Wanna Be a Winner? post from almost a month ago (le sigh).

Art Time

Maddie and I have been trying to do more art projects recently, but every time I get out the earth-friendly eco-dough and put down some wax paper, the child loses it - screaming, crying, generally throwing a fit. So, today we tried the more traditional Play Doh with no wax paper. Think she's into it?
I guess I need to get more Play Doh!

Double Wink!

Dakota's been teaching Maddie how to wink. She thinks watching him is hilarious!

So far, she's only mastered the wink the Mommy way - we can both wink with BOTH EYES at the SAME TIME!

Goodnight, Maddie!

Maddie has recently become obsessed with reading books (much to the delight of this Momma!). The other night before bed, she showed us she can read her bedtime books all by herself in her special rocking chair. Could she be more delighted with herself?

Pioneer Woman

I have a list of crafty projects to complete before the boy arrives, and I have this weird compulsion that these things HAVE to be done in order for me to go into labor. But add in not sleeping and dealing with an increasingly difficult toddler, and these projects are just NOT magically getting done. However, I'm feeling very Pioneer Womanish today and making our laundry soap. Maybe I'll bust out the sewing machine tonight and get a few other things done, too.
