That's right, folks! I am 37 weeks today. Whew. I am R-E-A-D-Y!
Lately Jacob has been super duper helpful. Last weekend, not only did he do all of the cooking, but most of the laundry and wrangling of Bobby.
This weekend I got the super nice surprise that he was off on Saturday. I could've sworn he told me he had to work, but happily he was off. It was another beautiful 70 degree day here so after my weekly visit to the chiropractor, we grabbed some sandwiches from a local market and headed over to Cabbagetown Park with Kat and Emma.
Saturday night Bobby had what I can only guess was a night terror. At around 1:30 am he woke up just screaming- not calling for us or crying like when he has a bad dream- but full out screaming. Jacob jumped out of bed and ran into his room. We could do nothing to console him or quiet him down. His eyes were open and he was walking and talking. He kept going on and on about how his sappys (pacifiers) were dirty. He didn't want us to snuggle him or even lay in the bed with him. Finally after about 20 minutes of talking softly to him and trying not to do something that would upset him, he calmed down. It was scary! He didn't remember it the next morning, just that he had a bad dream. He ended up sleeping with us- of course and as per usual lately, was glued to me all night so I got absolutely no sleep. In the morning, my wonderful honey took Bobby downstairs and let me sleep until 9:15 ...it was beautiful.
We pretty much finished up getting ready for our new arrival. Sunday, we went to BRU and exchanged the mattress we recently bought that had a tear in it and then went to Kohl's and got Bobby some shorts and sandals. A little early for that- you say? It was 75 degrees on Sunday and they only shorts we had that fit Bobby were a pair of 18 month overalls. They looked really funny with his tennis shoes.
I love shopping at Kohl's- everything is always on sale. We took 2 ties back that Jacob got from my mom for Christmas that he didn't really care for so we had about $40 in merch credit plus I had $10 in Kohl's cash from shopping with my mom last weekend. We got Bobby 5 pairs of shorts and a pair of sandals and ended up spending $10. Not to shabby at all.
We also went to BJ's and got an Ipod dock to take to the hospital so I have some tunes to labor with and once we got home, I finished putting the nursery back into baby mode. Then I went through some boxes of clothes and got out all the 0-3 month stuff. It's all so tiny! I've really forgotten how little my Punky was when he was born.

Today is my Monday. Jacob is back to work and I am home with the boys. It was nice having him home for four days without any real agenda. ...
