Baby Chain

Beth had the great idea to do this & I've copied her. This is our 'baby chain' - actually this pic was taken back at the end of March. It's the number of days till our baby comes. Red was March, yellow is April, and green is May. Our chain now just has a few yellows left before starting the green. It's been a great way for us all to visualize the days left - especially Levi.

Levi ponderings

After a long quiet pause from the backseat:
"How do octupus poo?"
At 5Am after getting up to go potty:
"Do alligators have noses?"
After inquiring about what animals/bugs live in the mud:
"Do crawfish get mud in their eyes?"
Dining room table, during dinner:
Levi informs his parents when his feet are dirty he sometimes licks them clean. His parents emphatically reply that this practice will result in worms & sickness. After pondering his fate, Levi informs his parents that it sure is taking a long time.

early May

a visit from my midwife GeorgAnna & her daughter, Bellaluna

she's checking out the baby - head down & in a good birth position

about 33 weeks
my first experience with a Doppler - we're all hearing the baby's heartbeat

Mom & Dad visited this past week - I took them to the old Midway graveyard one day to check it out

GeorgAnna brought her newborn, Clover

We found Levi in the room reading to her - he's getting ready for his new sibling

A beautiful new afghan from Aunt Rie

reading with Cookie

A big help in the kitchen - preparing shrimp to fry

feeling the baby kick

reading to his baby doll in the new baby seat - he's getting lots of practice

Pap brought a minnow trap that was a big hit - we put it in the canal behind the house - tadpoles & crawfish were caught & released
