Since R was with me all weekend, he was able to take Matthew downstairs at 7 am so I could sleep for an extra hour or two. This is how I found them on Sunday!
We're heading up to the cottage again this weekend, a little older and a little wiser. (I can't believe my 29th birthday is on Thursday! And my Mr. Man will be 1 month old!). We hope to put together the old crib and then move the playpen downstairs again for afternoon naps and changes. It should be fun! Matthew's big cousins can't wait to see him again and watch the "big show" of the diaper change. Oh how fun everything is when you are 6!

After talking to my good friend S online, I decided to try and clean up and take a nice walk to McDonald's. Baby K went into his crib and "seemed" to be sleeping, so I washed my face, brushed my teeth and got dressed. By that time, Baby K was awake and crying again, so I put him in his stroller and off we went on our hot and sticky walk. Baby K immediately fell asleep. Ah, sweet relief! Too bad mommy was hot and tired and started getting a stitch in her side half way there. We finally mad it to a lovely air-conditioned McDonald's and mommy ordered herself a nice cold drink and a hot fudge sundae. Mmmm.... But halfway through the sundae, Baby K was fussing again. Time to move. Again, Baby K slept all the way home. Yay. Maybe now mommy can put him down in his carseat and he'll sleep for a bit? NOPE! Cue more fussing, crying, screaming, oh please daddy get home soon!
Daddy comes home and Baby K is finally calm. We put Matthew down and I tried to take a nap. No go! Time to feed ... again. So daddy makes dinner and mommy gives Baby K his dinner. Mommy got to eat over Baby K and then daddy tried to get him to sleep. It took some doing, but Baby K finally went down for good! Too bad mommy is so overtired she can't sleep. I hope this was just a day one adjustment thing. Maybe Baby K missed having daddy around all day? Maybe mommy just needs to learn how to read him better? I can only hope that Baby K is tired enough tonight to sleep and give mommy a break. Tomorrow is a new day and I'm sure there will be better (and worse) days ahead. I must keep in mind, he is only 2 weeks old. We're both still learning. Things will get better. Breathe in, breathe out!

I've reached my original EDD, but my OB's EDD is still 3 days off. So one way or the other, I'm 40 weeks or almost 40 weeks and yes, I'm still here! My last day of work is officially Thursday and it couldn't come any sooner. I'm tired, sore and sitting all day is a pain in my ... ribs and back. I have no idea how much "progress" I've made. My OB doesn't do internal exams until you go into labour, so as for dialation and efacement, I have no clue what's going on. I haven't had any real contractions, only painless Braxton Hicks that sometimes push up into my ribs and cause me pain. Baby K seems rather comfy in there and loves to stretch his or her little legs out, which makes mommy quite uncomfortable. You'd think the cramped quarters would encourage the little one to start making its way, but Baby K shows no signs of wanting to meet us. My wish at this point is to have Baby K in my arms before Father's Day. I already bought Daddy his Father's Day gifts and I really want to see his reaction when he recieves them!
It could be a long wait ahead! I hope I can keep myself busy in the meantime! Here are my 39 week pictures. I hope to get my 40 week pictures up a little bit quicker.

I thought I had finished all my growing, but apparently I was wrong. Here is my 38 week bump pic. Not sure if will be my last one, at least judging by the general consensus. I'm still betting on Baby Kurz being fashionably late.

My height chart is in place!
My hand-painted murals
(OK, so the flash makes this look beige, but I swear it's yellow)
I used the bumper as my valance on my window. I love that I can reverse it or change it up for the other bumper with the cute owl on it.
My "Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" and some shower gifts: A silver spoon and a crystal pacifier from Egypt. Thanks Auntie Jan!

I'm guessing the doctor doesn't think I'll be going into labour any time soon because she gave me the go ahead to drive up North for May 24 weekend (as long as I'm not the one driving). So don't worry Mom, I'm not going to "pop" on the drive up. I'll ask again at my appointment next week just to be sure, but it looks like travel is still an option at this point (as long as my back holds out).
So here's my "small" bump. Apparently I still "don't look pregnant from behind" and am "soooo small". Well co-workers, friends and family, I certainly "feel" pregnant and definately don't "feel" small. If anyone knows some voodoo or has friends in high places, I'd appreciate you putting in a good word for my little one to get OFF MY NERVE! Owie kid, owie!

That's right folks, a tennis ball. I keep this puppy in my purse so I can stick it behind my back when I drive. I pull it out to use at my chair at work. I bring this with me everywhere! It's surprising to me that as uncomfortable as leaning on a tennis ball is, it feels sooooooo much better than the stabbing, radiating, burning nerve pain my little one is causing me. This miracle cure will be with me in labour and delivery as well, you can rest assured.
In honour of my 35/35 milestone, here is my weekly bump picture. I took this last night on our way to our breastfeeding class. Boy I wish I had worn this dress all day. Had I known it was going to be 28 C and HUMID, I wouldn't have worn pants to work. Live and learn I suppose!
I have also started to work on some more baby shower thank you cards. I'm feeling the pressure to get them done, so instead of scrapbooking on Friday like I usually do, I'll be card making! Hey, paper crafting is paper crafting right? I love these ones I made using the stamps I bought on sale. I made 10 of them and still have another 15 or so to go. I have to mix up my cards, or I'll get bored. I don't know quite what my 3rd set of cards will look like, but I'll be sure to post them here!
