News Worth Mentioning and Not Worth Mentioning

In exciting news:
Million wasn't a bully today at MOPS. He was, however, unfortunately quite disobedient when he got home.
You win some; you lose some.

In less exciting news to you, but still exciting news to me:
I am nearly done Christmas shopping.  As in, I just need to click order and pay for the Christmas gifts in my shopping cart.  I needed to get this done quickly, because my brain was starting to consider gag gifts appropriate.  Of course, we'll be making some handmade creations also, but we budgeted a very small amount of money for each person on our list this year.  

In not exciting news:
The ladies at MOPS today told me that they think I look "too comfortable to give birth any time soon."  
Also, I nearly cried because of a pinched nerve while grocery shopping in the yogurt aisle on Tuesday night.  Michael made me go out to the car to avoid further embarrassing situations. I had to relinquish control of my grocery shopping experience.

In "should I be a little possessive and jealous?" news:
The lady who fingerprinted my husband yesterday told him in a coquettish way that he had some good-looking fingerprints.  

In boring news:
I actually packed our hospital bags.  I am now officially left with nothing to do to "nest" should I have the urge.  I have resorted to Sudoku puzzles.

So....any news with you?


  1. Hi Heather! I don't post often, but I do read your blog. The last few days (dare I say week?) of pregnancy is hard. Hang in there. You're doing a great job, and there IS an end point to this. I promise! Good luck, I'm looking forward to reading about your newest addition.

    We're currently in month #29 for Ethiopia, and month #8 for South Korea. I've had it with the wait. Had. It. Sorry for venting on your blog. :)

  2. I'm assuming you won't have this MOPS issue again for a while. But I wanted to give you something to consider- because, when T first went to a group child care sort of setting- he had some similar issues... WE had similar issues and it got worse. Until I had an epiphany. Is he getting 'nurturing' 'attention from the adults / older kids in the room? Sitting on laps, hugs etc were VERY triggering/ confusing/ for my guy. which only showed up in the u.g.l.y. way at home with me. We had to draw some clear physical boundaries and give adults some alternative ideas. Don't know if this is the issue- but just thought I'd through it out there and make sure it doesn't stick. ps- patiently waiting little november man.

  3. Oh wow, you are getting SO close. SO CLOSE!!!

    Really really glad that M is making progress at MOPS. That must have been very cheering!
