November, Part 1

We spent most of the month waiting for a baby….but he gets his own post.

 

Here’s a picture of Sandy wearing this cute scarf my mom sent her. She wears it everywhere!

I was in charge of a restaurant night fundraiser for Sandy’s school. We got 20% of what was spent by those that ate at Zupas and said they were with the school. One day I unexpectedly needed to stay and make copies – someone else had said they’d do them and then didn’t. I’d changed cell phones recently and panicked when I realized I didn’t have any kids apps on my phone and I couldn’t get a signal in the school. So, Abby entertained herself by taking about a hundred selfies:

Bill’s birthday breakfast:

We really thought Bill was going to get a baby for his birthday. I had contractions – about 6 minutes apart -- but not progressing. If you look closely, you can see me in the top right corner of the picture below in the polar bear position. The idea was that the position would help him turn if he needed to. But nothing happened. Our original plan was to have him at home – thus the pool in the middle of the room.

It was a really stressful month and it was hard on the girls. We didn’t know when the baby was coming, and I kept having contractions that didn’t progress.

 

I took the girls to get their nails done and I got a pedicure:

The girls met Ronald McDonald one day:

I am so sorry that you went through the same contractions without progressing that I did! So not fun. That pool looks exactly like the one my midwife had set up at my house for two weeks last January... did your midwife put away in-between times?
