Daybook for 10/07/2011

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 the farm to pick up our CSA share this evening.

I am 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 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...
 Please note that Little Ish is now pacifier free!

  1. Beautiful baby! I love those sweet noises that sleeping babies make, too.
