There’s a baby on the way! I got the call from Jeannie today that she’s 12 weeks along, not the previously guessed 6 to 8 weeks. It’s 5.5 cm, and probably looks like a polliwog. At any rate, it acts like a polliwog. I would have rearranged my day and gone down for the ultrasound, had I thought about it at all. We were all focused on the blood test being the big news carrier. She’s due in June.
As they say in Canada, life’s aboot to change.
I am now wanting to go to Babies-R-Us.
Off topic, I went to REI yesterday and am still carrying with me that REI feeling. I love that store. I walk around staring at all the adventure gear and think about all the places those things will go, mostly garages but still, the potential. I picked up a copy of Krakauer’s “Eiger Dreams”, his first book and the only one I haven’t read. It’s a collection of his mountaineering essays. I am currently having difficulty putting it down.
