4 hours of sleep while 9 months pregnant sucks. Just so you know.
Yesterday we mostly stayed around the house. Bailey and Steve ran to the store to buy printer ink, and then later went to get a couple groceries so they could make dinner.
Just as we were finishing dinner my mom stopped by. She is really happy! She is dating someone and it seems to be going really well. It was great to see her. It is her birthday tomorrow, so we’re going out to lunch with her and her beau.
While she was here we had the Great Peep Jousting/Fencing Tournament of 2009.
Love the belts! Bailey made them out of pipe cleaners. Steve is such a good sport, eh?
The Peeps… ready with their swords/lances/toothpicks/whatever in my dirty microwave oven.
The result! Green won… we think.
After Bailey went to bed last night I cleaned the kitchen, and did some prep work so I could make lasagna today. Then I dozed for half an hour on the couch and then I couldn’t get back to sleep until nearly 5 a.m. Then I was up again at 9 a.m. Lasagna-making went out the window. So did making a “Big Sister” T-shirt with Bailey. 😦 It was all I could do to drag my ass to the library and then to Wal-Mart to pick up some necessities.
This evening we went to Sarah’s birthday party. She had a live band! Even though we could only go for about an hour, it was really fun. If any of the pictures that Steve took had turned out I would post one, but alas our camera kind of fails in the night photography department.
Bailey has been keeping busy these days with art projects, although today she played around with her Easy Bake oven and made us some chocolate chip cookies from a recipe she found online. I think it was this one:
- 1 tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 tsp. margarine
- 1/8 tsp. b. powder
- 1/8 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. water
- 3 tbsp. flour
- 4 tsp chocolate chips
Stir together the sugars and margarine. Add the b. soda, vanilla, water, and flour, stirring until flour disappears. Mix in the chocolate chips. Roll the dough between your fingers and make 12 small balls, 1/2″ each. Place a few balls on a greased and floured sheet or pan with space between them. Bake 10-12 mins.
I just love the amount of ingredients you need. Too cute! And the cookies turned out pretty good.
She has also been on pins and needles waiting for her Auntie T. to give birth. Today was her due date. Bailey calls her every day now to see how she is feeling. 🙂
As for me, I am kind of nesting, and I feel like the baby has dropped by a couple centimeters. I’m nowhere near ready though. We haven’t decided on a name, and the homebirth supplies haven’t arrived yet! As of tomorrow night I’m “officially” 37 weeks though, which means I can have a homebirth. Yay!
