This is a vacation?

I arrived in Texas late last Thursday night. Friday was spent helping my sister pack up her apartment. Then we went and saw "Baby Mama" which was good. However, as most comedies do, this one had a sad spot, and I can tell I'm pregnant because I started crying and could not stop. I think my sister was a little freaked out. But it was all good. Saturday, I saw various family members and played various games and just generally had a great time, although I didn't get a nap, nor did I get to bed early. Sunday was spent helping my sister move into her third floor apartment, and yes, I did make several trips. Nine, to be exact. It was all light stuff, but I probably should have taken it a little easier. I was in bed by 8:30p. Monday, I got to see Camille!!!! We went to Babies r us, where my head exploded with all the stuff I apparently need to raise a healthy, well-developed child. Then we just hung out, and I got to see her kids. Her youngest, who is three, wanted to know, since I have a baby in my belly, if so did she. But, again, no nap and I was exhausted. Back to bed by 8:30p.
Tuesday, I felt much better and Phoenix came over! I got to take a nap with him, and got many, many hugs. But funniest of all, he wanted to know where I was sleeping. More specifically, he wanted to know if I was sleeping with Nana and Grandpa. I guess when he spends the night, he doesn't get to sleep with him, and he really wants to. So he was very concerned about whether or not I was getting to sleep with them. He also wanted to know if I was moving in with them, but I'm not. Today, Phoenix came over again. We made banana muffins, as you can see.
Cute aprons!


The funniest thing today, Phoenix wanted to know, if I had a baby in my tummy, how it was going to get out!?! He's four, and he thinks girls don't pee because we only have butts, so I certainly wasn't going to explain it to him, but he really did look rather concerned. Maybe I'll just show him the video after the fact!

Are you seriously going to videotape it?

Stacia said...

Um, probably not. At least, I hope not. My husband kind of wants to, but I think he would rather participate without a camera.

A friend of mine videotaped the birth of her niece because her sister wanted it on tape. I just can't imagine wanting that on tape! The cool part is having a kid in your life - the birth part, to me, is a prelude to the good part. But then again, I've never had one, so what do I know.

Phoenix has gotten so big!!! Being exhausted is pretty common when you're pregnant. So is the crying. =)

I had a c-section, but we video'd Capt Stinky's birth from the moment he was brought over the drape. So no icky stuff. Just the nurses checking him over and cleaning him up and stuff. I still love it. And he always wants to watch "his movie".
