Gumbo gets stirred.

Here is a picture of me that I took this weekend, it was in the 60s. Now it is in the 30s. I hate winter.

I realize its been 2 weeks since I last wrote. Sorry. Not much is happening. The baby kicks and moves. This week he moved from his horizontal position into a vertical one. I think he is breech, but he has plenty of time to turn. He did it while I was in a meeting. I wanted to shout, "Hey! This cool thing is happening right now, RIGHT NOW, as we are speaking, my baby is turning his body in my womb!!!" Of course I didn't, but I wanted to.

Tom went to Minnesota and brought back tons of hand me downs from his sister Monica. He also had his birthday and then got sick. He is almost done with his illness, however, and hopefully will be feeling top notch soon enough.

Gumbo is the length of a hot house English cucumber (14 inches). And weights 1 2/3 pounds. He's darling isn't he?

Finally, I made a labor playlist on my ipod of music to last 13 hours. I hope that the hard part of labor does not extend beyond this 13 hours.

That's all folks.


  1. Gumbo IS darling & so is his Mamma. The hard part of labor only last 2 hours max, am I correct ladies?

  2. My hard labor with Matthew was like nothing, b/c I had the epi... with Kenzie, about 3 hours of intense pain (7am - 10:10am!!!). But it really only felt like about 15 minutes.

    I love that dress... you need a cute brown sweater to match so you can keep wearing it :)

  3. I know for a fact that there are no guarantees in labor and especially not in the hard labor part, although I hope it isn't more than 2 hours max.
    KA, I didn't know you were posting as "bear" I have another friend who uses a bear often and I thought it was her. But, with kid names its obvious to me now. =) xxooo
