But, made a HUGE mess on the floor, which I luckily got to sweep up! (Sand goes into the garbage once swept up - and not back into the sandbox as kids do end up tasting the sand sometimes).
And we also finger painted with some finger paints today. (I managed to get Sean's handprints on another piece of paper for his baby book - the last time I got his feet/hand prints he was just a few months old). I definitely want to try to get them stamped every few months for keepsake in his baby book.
Today was an all boy class, not one of the 2 girls that are in our class (Ashley & Abby and their mommies) showed up! BOYS RULE!
Then this afternoon we went shopping with my mother & sister. Which was supposed to be window shopping. Me in a mall = bad! I picked up a cute onesie for the baby, a pair of PJs for Sean (Joe boxer!) amongst some books and toys for Sean. One toy I picked up, he already has (I wasn't sure if it was exactly the same) but it is, so it's going back shortly to the store. Hubby has been telling me that my pink purse (pictured above here on Sean's stroller) is FILTHY (yep, it has been to hockey games and play dates, etc and gets tossed around....) so I picked up a cute little bag (yes, I have a purse fetish)! and a new wallet (as mine is busting apart and fading...)
Sean loves playing with this drum in our Wednesday music class, so I've found him one today while at Winners. He's been banging away at it since we got home.
I'm all signed up to take Kate Gilbert's class on Two Toe Up Socks on One Circular Needle on Sunday April 20th, 2008 from 10 am until 4 pm. There's spots for 6, so now there's at least 5 left. I'm VERY excited to finally learn 2 socks on 1 circ, AS well as toe-up! It's a double whammy!
21 Weeks Pregnant, Take 2. All decked out in Habs gear. (No game on tonight though). I still feel like my belly is bigger than 21 weeks though.... but who knows.
In regards to all that induction talk yesterday... I was just voicing my thoughts. Thank you everyone for your honest opinions, your medical opinions and your personal experiences. Don't forget that I have not yet discussed it with my doctor, and I have no idea how he feels about it. The only reason I feel so strongly about it - is because I was induced with Sean. My water broke at 37 weeks and 5 days, and I wasn't contracting at all - nor was I dialted or was my cervix any where near effaced. I was put on Pitocin three times in the span of 32 hours. I know the effects of Pitocin - and almost had a C-Section because Sean didn't want to come out. Though, we fought through it and ended up having to use forceps to get Sean out because he wasn't sliding down.
Though, it would be nice to have my actual own doctor deliver my son, since he delivered Sean, and he delivered me as well as my 2 siblings way back when. (Family tradition?) If my doctor isn't against it, and I'm somewhere past 37 weeks, then I will see what the situation will be. It defeinitely would be easier to have a babysitter lined up for Sean, but I definitely don't want to make further complications for myself, or the baby.
I simply wanted your opinions & experiences, as was curious to what you went through and think. I thank you all who shared that with me.
And honestly, I'm freaked out of delivering any baby bigger than Sean was (5 lbs 5 oz) because I know what it took to get him out... and frankly - anything bigger than that - scares the shit out of me! Almost to the point of a C-section..... and what I'm thinking - was since it was SOOOO hard to get Sean through my pelvic area - he wasn't coming down, my mother had the same thing with me, I couldn't fit (at 6 lbs 11 oz) and she had a C-section with me because of that. It took 32 and a half hours to get Sean out, (with forceps none the less)..... maybe a baby larger won't fit?? But, I'm not going to let that freak me out until I'm at least 34-35 weeks + pregnant. (LOL).My mother gave me the other day two sweaters that someone had hand knit for me when I was a baby. She's kept them all these years. Though, in unisex colors.... do you think they're appropriate to put on a boy - or do you think they're too "girly" of a pattern?
I think this one above (the plain white one) is definitely too girly for baby boy number 2....
