preparing the dogs

after the two showers, patrick and i have ended up with a lot of baby things. while we anticipated the amount of gifts, we didn't anticipate abby's reaction to the items in her space. usually during the early evening, you can find abby on her back on the couch. this week, i found her upstairs in her bed. i think she got nervous with all the boxes and new things in the living room. maybe she thought she was being adopted again. patrick quickly moved all the items out and since then, abby is once again enjoying her couch. rosey doesn't notice anything!

patrick and i say i am growing outward. babychaud is likely 4 pounds and 16 inches long (according to the internet). i will get the doctor's opinion monday.

It does look like you are growing out, which is good because it will give you more room for your stomach and lungs. He is coming right along. Fifty-one days!

When I brought Gracie home from the hospital I put her in her bouncey seat. Myra ran right past her to see me. She didn't notice her until she made a slight noise. I'm sure Myra was thinking "I hope she's not staying".

It is heartwarming to see my family prepare for your little son. Grandma counting the days, Grandpa nodding approval to Uncle Scott and Patrick's painstaking and sentimental preparation of the crib, and you, Nicole, patiently weathering the necessary physical difficulties of bringing this child into the world. This is a lucky child, already wrapped in love.
