End of the Week

This morning we waved farewell to my parents as they headed back to Manitoba. We had a great week together starting with celebrating my birthday last Saturday. I still have to get the pictures off of my camera, so I will try to post them tomorrow...

I think Micah was just warming up to his Granny & Grandpa when they had to leave! He had a rough week though, starting with diarrhea and fevers - 2nd year molars perhaps?? He also decided that he no longer enjoys going to sleep. He used to go down super-easy and now we've had to let him cry almost every bedtime & nap this week. I'm not sure if the disruption of having visitors here was the culprit. The other night he woke up at 3:30 am and screamed for nearly 2 hours before finally passing out with exhaustion beside his door! He cried so long that I didn't think he was even capable of tiring! I was in tears myself from the whole ordeal, but even I had to crack a smile when his cries of "Mommy!" & "Daddy!" suddenly turned to "Jamie, Jamie!" - thanks to Erik teaching him Mommy's name this week :) But, yes, this has been a frustrating turn of events and I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that Micah's sleep issues may not get resolved before the baby comes...

Speaking of the baby, today is the 13th which means I'm only ONE MONTH away from meeting him or her! Hard to believe! I got a lot of responses regarding my last post - I'm glad to hear that the "membrane stripping" worked for some (and may not be as painful as I've heard). As for the castor oil, I've heard it can be a little too intense, so I don't think I'll go that route :) All suggestions are welcome though!

My new friend Anj, took some pregnancy pictures of me a week and a half ago and dropped them off for me yesterday. They look amazing! There are SO many good ones to choose from, but I only scanned a few so I could share them with you:






It was so much fun having the pictures taken and I'm hoping to get Anj to come again after the baby's born for some more fun shots!

I got tears in my eyes too just thinking of Mr. Micah and his 2 hour cry. I loved that he called you Jamie. I hope this is a short season of not so good nights.
I love these pictures!!!!! According to my guess you only have half a month to go. Can't wait!

Re: stretch marks
They are just well hidden - mostly on the sides of my hips and lower belly where my pants conveniently cover them up :)
