May 30, 2011
I would like to officially and formally take issue with my own damn post title here -- technically, according to the LMP math, today should be my due date. Early ultrasounds bumped me back a week, only for the later scans to once again suggest that I was actually farther along than we thought and jibed with the May 30th hypothesis. But we officially stuck with the original U/S dating and a June 4th due date and I didn't really care all that much at the time but for the record I SUDDENLY CARE AN AWFUL LOT ALL OF A SUDDEN.
(I do not care, however, about making sure I've remembered to put on a bra before taking photos of myself anymore.)
(Or about looking anything other than really bizarrely kind of mean.)
Anyway, it's a holiday and I'm not going to waste any of y'all's time with stories from my weekend, EVEN THOUGH it included the thrilling additions of my husband becoming temporarily, thoroushly crippled from a cortisone injection in his back on Friday and Ezra puking down my shirt on Saturday and I stress-organized the playroom, like down to making sure that different action figures were sorted into separate bins by movie, trilogy or AT LEAST genre. Needless to say, it was not exactly the likely-last pre-baby weekend I had in mind, what with me babying and waiting on two other human beings instead vice versa and that's about when I took those scowly-type pictures.
But then Tracey and Charlie came over last night and brought baby clothes and dinner and dessert and Kung Fu Panda One for Noah (don't even try to tell him he doesn't need to include the "One" in the title; he has seen the marketing for Kung Fu Panda Two and THERE WILL BE ORDER) and played race cars on the kitchen floor with Ezra and everything actually ended up being pretty damn okay and fun. PLUS I think Charlie's cooking has magical healing powers, because Jason can actually WALK today. Which is nice, for a change.
So, in other words, we're all going to go play outside for awhile. Just the four of us. Before the BOOM EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT NOW FOREVER thing happens.
