35 Weeks Yesterday

I can't believe how fast this time is flying. After being tormented by Rob, I have almost completely packed a bag for the hospital. I have some clothes packed for me, and I picked out the outfit that I am going to bring Joey home in. I was going to take a picture of that outfit, but I think I'll wait until he is in it before I take the picture.

I am enjoying a quiet night at home. Rob is working tonight and Colby is now in bed. I couldn't find anything to watch and made the mistake of watching Life's Little Miracles. For anyone who does not know this show, it is a show all about sick kids filmed in Toronto. So, of course I've been bawling for the past 10 minutes before deciding to move and come blog.

We met up with the Reads today. I can't get over how much Adelle is growing. She is so beautiful. Colby was quite taken with her. It should be interesting to see how he is going to be with Joey. He told the waitress that Adelle was his "baby sister". it was much too cute.

I went into work today to pick up my ROE and drop off my key to the quality room. I must say that I don't miss work. It was a long walk up to the quality room and of course 1/2 way up the stairs I started to cramp up. Leaving work early was the best thing I could have ever done. Today just proved to me that I really have to take my time. By supper time tonight I was exhausted. But, to think, we were on the road by 8 to go to Truro, home by 11:30, then I was back in the car again by 12:30 to go to work, then we went to Vogue with Dad to pick out new glasses (Funny story - the frames we picked out for him were too small for him because he now has bifocals but looked GREAT on me, shows who I look like!) and then we came home Colby and I went out AGAIN to return a movie and put more gas in the truck since gas went up to 113.9 today. But, Rob is off this weekend and I'm quite excited about that. I am also in the process of re-reading The Di Vinci Code, since the movie comes out May 19th and I will be going to the theatre to see it. **IF** this child is stubborn like his brother and decides NOT to come out on his due date and hangs on until May 18th for the c-section, I obviously won't make it to opening night. I'm still hoping to have an April baby, and if that's the case his first night staying with someone for a couple hours will be May 19th! Any volunteers? Uncle Adam?!?!?! LOL

If you throw him at me I will probably catch out of reflex, but probably drop just as quickly. I'll pass the buck to grama Jeannine......

But Adam, what a way to help you find a lady friend! Tell her you have to babysit your less than 1 month old nephew!

umm sure, but that will attract the ones who are looking for their own kids.

Ummm I'm just wondering - is Joey the actual name of the baby or is Joey just a nickname such as a baby kangaroo??? LOL. Either way I like it :)

His given name will be Joseph Bernard, after both our grandfathers. But I have already shortened it to Joey and it seemed to have stuck!
