such a sweet, sweet little tyrant. Hungry about every 90 minutes so far …. Jessica’s boobs are about to fall off, someone told her the rubbing with the washcloth thing was a myth …
So, we have about 9 days until the due date for J’s baby. I’m jazzed!
However, you have to cut me some (more) slack – I will probably get a little baby-centric, depending on how much I see the child.
Here’s a good start. I love this, it shows how baby brains work and why peek-a-boo is so popular. Initially, they are like cats, I think – Out of Sight, Out of Mind. That short term memory is undeveloped.
… but I’m tired of looking at the other post every time my browser launches.
The baby shower plans seem to be coming together and I’m not TOO nervous. As a bonafide introvert I’ve never been much on entertaining – it’s hard on me, but never-the-less I have a little entertaining muscle that wants to flex every now and again. The baby shower is flexing it. It’s already sore. Aching, even.
My friend Sally is all about party planning, and she’s helping me get over the ‘it’ll happen by itself’ thing that I’m wont to do. So now I’ve written some of it down! Wow! So what happens after you write it down? Inquiring minds want to know.
32 people have RSVP’d so far. That’s a lot of people. I can borrow tables, we’ll just move the whole shebang to the back yard and pray for sunshine. I’ve got just about everything else together, except the goody bags. What are they for? I know I should research these on the intarwebs but have not, so far anyway. I just know you’re supposed to have some sort of goody bags. I bought some pink see-through material bags with drawstrings, they are technically for a wedding but they’ll work for the girl baby shower. Probably. I’m just going to put random candy in them. Who needs more junk? Did I mention this was going to be co-ed? Yes, it is. Guest ages ranging from 17 to 70, male and female. Most of the guests won’t really know the rest of the guests. Won’t it be ever so interesting trying to keep everyone on the same page?? !
Wish me luck!
