Thought I'd go ahead and get October's chit chat thread started. It IS October. I'm trying to wrap my head around it. Not many weekends left to get things done...This weekend will be spent with family in Houston. We have a nightmare of a family photo shoot tomorrow morning. It will be my parents, our family, my brother's family, my aunt's family, and my dad's cousins family. My mom informed me that there is a color theme: brown, blue, and red. Oh jeez. I peeked at the website of the photographer involved. He is a fan of the family totem. You know, where everybody sort of stacks on top of each other. Blargh. Plus it's scheduled very close to ds's nap time so we will definitely be knocked off schedule. Not great as we are seeing David Byrne tomorrow night and leaving ds at my parent's house with my brother and sister in law. We really need him to be in bed before we leave. There will be 5 children under 4 involved in this photo shoot. I'm trying to be chill about it...
Next weekend is the baby shower my MIL is throwing for me. I have an amazon registry that I'm about 99% certain no one has even looked at. We need to pick up a garage fridge/freezer next weekend, too. Then after the shower, I can start buying the few things we really do need and hopefully have a powerful nesting surge to get things wrapped up. I would love to get the master bedroom and nursery painted, but that might be overreaching.
On I side note, I realllllly need to stop watching A Baby Story. It's on everyday right after I get DS down for a nap, so I watch it while I'm eating lunch. It is infuriating for the most part, but I do get teary and think about this baby girl when the baby makes an entrance. I don't think I can listen to another ob telling a woman that she'll have to have a section and there's no way to know why she isn't dilating or why the baby is in distress after she's been induced 3 days after her due date due to discomfort, though. That sort of birth scenario is really not what I need to be filling my head with as the possibility of a hospital birth is real for me at this point.
As of tomorrow it's 5 weeks to edd. Oh my!
Hope all of you mamas are feeling well and getting things done. I'm getting really excited to meet these babies!
