Two weeks and two days...

1. Our car had a broken water pump. $284.00. That's less than $300.00 which is a good thing I guess? I had a few tears about it yesterday but as Gary pointed out, once your car is 10 years old, you have to start putting money into it. Also, I'm very thankful that we can afford it (even though I'm on mat. leave, we put $300 into it a few weeks ago, and our house insurance is due in one month....:). I wish there was a coupon or something for car repairs so I could feel like I was getting a good deal. Even a $10.00 off coupon would make me happy...

2. Doctor appt today went fine. Had the dreaded strep B swab. If you don't know what it is, just you wait:) It's really not that bad, just awkward. Baby is fine. Apparently I'm still measuring 38 weeks along (I'm 36.5). Weight gain: 31lbs (and that is with the nice scale). Baby HR: 147bpm. Baby is currently posterior (as was Kai). I'm not surprised as I sit in the recliner so much. I tried many different positions/things to rotate Kai but it did not happen...I'm not concerned about it now!

3. Kai loves the song `My Bonnie lives over the ocean'. Yesterday he was filling in different words like `My van/Bubi/garage lives over the ocean' and then he would do this hilarious fake/real laugh. We were taking turns making up lines and then he said `We are so funny mommy!'. He always asks what letter words start with. Today he asked me what `triangles' started with. I said `Tuh, tuh, tuh, what letter is that?' and he got it! He also got that ball started with B based on the `Buh' sound. He has started recognizing/taking an interest in numbers up to 10 although I'd say he's only got about half of them down. I asked him his favourite things to do with mommy and daddy. He said that with mommy he likes to spell/play boggle (we just use the boggle pieces to spell words) and with daddy he likes to play basketball and fix things. I don't sound like a very fun mom! The other day he said that he wants to be a basketball cute:)

4. Kai and I got bundled up and shoveled the sidewalk. Halfway through, I decided that wasn't a very good idea as I didn't want to pull something so we left the rest for daddy-o. It sure seems to be snowing a lot in our least the roads were good for us this morning! Yay for the van!

5. In 2 weeks and 2 days I will be holding my baby. I can't believe it. I feel so, so, so blessed to be adding to our family and I def. do not take it for granted. Tears. I physically feel WAY better than I did with Kai. Could be due to the cool weather (no swelling and sweating!!!!) or maybe its just a smaller baby. I can't wait to see if he/she looks like Kai, Gary or myself. I secretly hope that it looks like me. I just think it would be amazing to look at a baby and see a resemblance. Two weeks and two days!!!! Maybe it will have red hair (Gary was an EXTREME redhead until he was about 16). Two weeks and two days!!!
