The Count Down is On

So my due date is in 9 days- I think reaching a single digit is a good place to start a count down. Constant kicks coming from Hazel- tell me she's getting crowded in there and finding it cramped- alas she is a little too cozy perhaps.. like cuddling in your favorite toasty blanket when you're in a sleep haze. Someone suggested jumping jacks- I won't go that far- but I have been trying to telepathically tell her we're ready for her- she can come out now!

Zach's sister and her husband and two children are en route to NY from Hawaii- sure they're making stops all over the US visiting friends and other family... but they're also on a mission to meet Hazel before they return on/around the 10th of December. No pressure Hazel, ahem.

But I know she'll come out when she's good and ready- whenever that may be and we really should cherish this exciting time right before.. so that is what I'm going to do!

Today I meet with my midwife and then Z & I are going to interview or meet a few perspective pediatricians. I'd like to make some sugar cookies to eat and freeze. I need to hem some curtains,hang some Christmas lights,hang our little "HAZEL" sign from her Grammy( Z will actually be doing the hanging- I'll be the foreman) and work on some more Christmas gifts.

This weekend will include a few trips to markets to get our essentials and stockpile the cubbard. Some possible movie watching (the latest Librarian (I'm a dork),Tropic Thunder, Smart People and/or Wall-E. And little nestings...

Monday something very special involving Hobocamp and Etsy will be unveiled- so look for that- here

Have a great weekend- Be well!
