It’s my due date, and I have nothing to say except that I’m still waiting.
Archive for July, 2007
Thanks to Angie I now have one photo of me during this pregnancy. It’s crazy how you forget to do little things like take pictures when you are busy running after a 16 month old. It’s also crazy how before I had Markus I swore I would not refer to my kids in months of age after they turned one, and here I am, doing just that. Anyway, this is me, two and a half weeks away from the due date: July 24th is fast approaching!
When I was pregnant with Markus, I kept reading that a good thing to do while waiting for your baby to arrive is to cook some meals to put in the freezer so you have food at the ready after your baby is born. “Yeah right,” I thought. “Who has time for that?” Well, after having one child already, I now recognize the priceless value of not having to cook for a while after giving birth: you’ve got a heck of a lot more time to cook before birth than after! Some ladies from church gave us food for a week after Markus was born, and I would have been wise to have another week’s worth of food in the freezer. This time I am heeding the advice. There are already four meals neatly stacked away in the freezer and hopefully I’ll get some more done before our new addition makes their first appearance.
