Here was the scene at our place yesterday:
And here is the scene today:
We have entered the season of sickness. There has been some form of sickness in our household for the last 3-4 weeks now: colds, flus, fevers... you name it. We're sick of being sick and hoping that the end is near. We talked about getting the flu shot this year after Micah's marathon flu in the spring - does anyone know if they're offering it somewhere in Abbotsford these days??
Thanks for all your kind words in my "fat" post :P I really wasn't fishing for compliments but I thank you for them nonetheless! I had my routine 18-week ultrasound on Friday and got to see little Ju-Jube again. I could feel him/her kicking and moving the whole time the tech was doing her measurements (I couldn't watch on a separate screen this time) and then once she was ready for me to have a look, little Jubie just snuggled right up and decided to go to sleep. His/her head was down and a profile shot was nearly impossible, so I was glad I had already gotten pictures from the first ultrasound.
And here is some evidence of the packing that is slowly happening around here...
It's only 2 and 1/2 weeks until we get possession of our new place - and probably a little longer before we're actually living there. This has seemed like a really long wait to move in and I'm starting to get antsy. I feel like I can't pack much more until right at the very end. Micah has already been asking for some of his things that have been packed away, so I feel like I'm just waiting for the day to get closer before we do the major packing.
We talk about our new house with Micah often and I think he understands that change is on the horizon. We've driven past our new place a few times and I even took him to the park down the street which he loved. I'm not sure what Keziah will make of the move since there's really not much we can do to prepare her at this age. Not to mention all the other changes that are coming up for her - moving out of her crib, potty training and possibly moving into a room with her brother all before a new baby arrives... Poor kid - she has no idea what's in store!
Tonight - depending on the state of my ill children - we are hoping to carve some pumpkins. And Friday night we'll be with care group friends to do a Harvest Party for the kids. Micah is excited to be "Marty" (a.k.a. the zebra from Madagascar) and Keziah will be pretty in her pink ballerina tu-tu. Stay tuned for pictures of the kids in their costumes...
