We’ve been on fall break for the past couple of days. Translation: Mommy has been lazy and Daddy and the girls have been working hard on their big project.
Here it is:
It’s a “wild garden.” We’re going to turn this little plot into a maze of vegetables and flowers and butterflies (hopefully) in the spring, but apparently the work starts now. My job was to supervise and take pictures while the girls and Joshua hauled mulch and scraped dirt.
Then I was worn out, so Amelia and I had to go inside and take naps. It’s tough to supervise. And did I mention, it was super cold on this day? On Monday it was 78 degrees, on Thursday it was 48. Then I started wondering why the house was so cold, and guess what? The unit isn’t working. No idea how long it’s truly been out since it’s been off for about ten days and the windows have been open. But yesterday, the thermostat quit registering as well. Good thing last year we invested in this lovely piece so our tootsies can stay warm.
On Thursday, we also visited my OB office for an ultrasound to determine just when this new baby is actually due. Here’s a little TMI for some of you: when you get pregnant on your IUD, it’s hard to determine exactly when that might have occurred. Hence, the three ultrasounds I’ve already had. So, we thought Peanut was due more mid to late May, but it’s been decided to move the date to May 8th. Which might break our birthday streak: 9-19, 3-19, 2-19. But since this baby is on it’s own timing, who’s surprised?
We took the girls with us to see the baby, and all they kept asking poor Jessica was, “Boy or girl?” No amount of “it’s too early” could convince them. Here it is…boy or girl?
Kind of skeletal in honor of Halloween. My dates were changed to show that baby measured 11w2d, so we’ll check back in November to answer that all important question. Yes, this time I want to know. Joshua doesn’t, but I told him I’d be happy to find out and he could just not speak to any of my friends or family or check facebook between now and May. So, he gave up the argument. I think he’s saving his breath for the name argument, um, discussion.
Now we’re having a lazy Saturday that needs to get a move on if we’re going to make it to the farm for apple picking later today.
Where are you rambling off to this Saturday?
