Hey guess what!?
We're still pregnant. The Lovely Lisa has arrived and, as of yet, there has been no need for her calming massage-tastic skills. (Desire, but alas, no need.) So we have initiated Phase 1 of Operation Baby Shake Out. Meaning that we have eaten some spicy Thai food and taken some walks. Okay, it is a pretty mellow game plan, but you know, I'm nine months pregnant...
Unfortunately the weather has taken a turn toward blistering hot, so most OBSO activities have to be restricted to the hours before 9 am and after 7 pm. It is so hot during the middle of the day that all the cicadas come out and click, and the day sounds like its sizzling. For relief we have inflated a baby pool on the back porch to allow for gestational floatation. Ah sweet floatation. We even used it to practice some coping-breathing techniques last night as the water from the hose was really freaking cold.
So we have a few other things to check off the OBSO list, mostly foods to consume, such as eggplant parmesan and pepperoni pizza before the midwife steps in with the big guns. Eeek. Big guns. But that is still a few weeks off, so we'll just hold onto our little baby horses here and wait.
Oh and drink these...sweet smoothie nectar of the gods.
And finally a quick knitting update. The Hub hated the HubCap. Durn it. He says he's not a "roll brim" kinda guy. Any one want a nice woolie hat for July? Yours for the price of a smile! I have since knitted another hat that I love love love and started on a baby sweater! (Eeek, in over my head there, but giving it the old college try!) I bet you're on the edge of your seat about my knitting, huh?
