SOON TO BE A BIG SISTER

"Ava, are you excited to see your little baby sister?"
"Yeah! I can't wait!"


Sitting at the table tonight...painful contraction.
"Grandma, what is Mommy doing?"
"She's trying to get the baby out." :)
Ava gently pats my arm.


"Ava, you need to go potty right now."
"No, I said I can't. I'm having painful contractions!"
(I think Grandma Lund and Ava had a conversation. ) :)


Sitting on the couch coloring...Ava looks over and asks,
"Mommy, are you having painful contractions?" 
Seems so "adult" coming from her mouth. :)

WELL, THAT CAME OUT WRONG! :)

Sitting at the table and Ava pushes her fingers into her neck to make herself cough. She thinks it's funny.
Me: "Ava, don't do that."
Grandma Lund: "Yeah Ava, don't poke your choke!" :)

TRUE. SO TRUE.

Me: "Hey honey, we're going to Brendan and Karla's for supper so if you want to go swimming you should bring your suit."
Donald: "Yeah, I might jump in and try not to get electrocuted.
Me: "Electrocuted? Why would you get electrocuted?"
Donald: "Cuz I'd be holding my computer."

AVA AND TAP

Ava loves Tap. Maybe a little too much. It's a constant battle to get her to not pull his tail, choke him or pull his hair. Last night, I told her again to leave him alone. She said, "But Mom! It's my favorite game!!"

SO. MUCH. PAIN.

Something happened in the middle of the night that made moving in any way absolute torture. My bones hurt. I think this little girl is ready to meet the world. I'm ready...now if Mom would just get here....

39 WEEKS - COUNTING DOWN

39 weeks...7 days until Mom gets here. :) She says that baby has to wait until then. It's gonna be a long week. :)
Last Friday night and Saturday night, contractions started at 2 am and went until 6 - 8 am. Nothing regular since then but we're definitely getting closer! 
Dr. appointment tomorrow. Hopefully it's good news. :)
Karla went in this morning at 5 am...no babies yet. Hoping for the best.

RIGHT NOW

It's Monday. Donald is sitting in the chair working on his computer. Ava is laying on the floor, coloring at his feet. Both of them are singing "Amazing Grace" at the top of their lungs. Priceless.

38 WEEKS

I am 38 weeks today. 2 weeks to go! Feeling good! (except for some major swelling of the feet but that's to be expected :) ) I pre-registered at the hospital today and started packing my bag! Dr. appt tomorrow...I hope he has good news! Need to find a pediatrician too.
Mom flies in on the 23rd...2 weeks from today! 
I finally got my "mom wheels." I love it. So easy to get Ava in and out! 
I have no idea where she learned it but Ava has taken to shaking her bum and saying, "take a, take a ride!" hmmm...
Ava has also started to take herself to the bathroom! Big girl!! 
I checked out the Conroe Rec/Aquatic Center today. Can't wait to take Ava and cool off this summer!
We still don't have a refrigerator...
