We had our ultrasound yesterday. So fun to see Baby P #2 kicking around in there. Actually, he/she (no, we didn’t find out) did a whole lot of transverse lying and relaxing, legs crossed, sucking a thumb. This explains why I’ve been feeling so W I D E this pregnancy! We couldn’t get him/her to budge from that spot. But we got some cute pictures, anyway (which I’m too lazy to scan in right now).
Anja did pretty well at first, but since my placenta is anterior (in the front), it took a little longer to get clear shots of the baby, and she grew impatient. Daddy would say, “Look at the baby on the TV!” and she would grab his face with both hands and say, “No! Look at Anja!” Hope this isn’t a preview of things to come…
Speaking of Baby #2, does anyone have any good recommendations for a double stroller? Brands, types (side-by-side or tandem, jogger or non)? I’m in the market. 🙂
I got an hour and a half to myself this morning (Anja was at half-day daycare today since they were closed on Monday). I read a book. I’ve really been enjoying Bryson’s stuff this summer (this is the third I’ve read; also these two), even though he occasionally branches into the bizarre or lewd. His descriptions of Midwesterners in The Lost Continent made me howl with laughter because they are so accurate.
We’re enjoying rather mild weather, and I’m loving it. I had sunshine for all three of my photo shoots this past weekend, which was an amazing blessing. It’s supposed to rain this weekend, but hopefully we won’t be rained out of senior pictures.
I’ve been contacted twice by a lady nicely asking me to link to this website and inform you about this buying local initiative. I haven’t had a chance to read through it all, so hopefully it’s something I agree with! Here’s an article that tells more about it. And I happen to know a fantastic little photography business you can support if you’re wanting some treasures to put on your walls or in a keepsake album! 😉
Oh, and it’s 09/09/09. I just HAD to post today.
