The family is starting to weigh in on when they think he will come. Anne says Saturday, my mom Monday (she had a dream, so it must be right), and Greg Tuesday. I'm really fine with any of these days – I'm fine as long as I don't have to be induced at this point.
Joe and I are having a debate about when the child is allowed to go out in public. Of course our pediatrician will settle the argument, but in the meantime please feel free to comment. I have a knitting party on December 9th and plan to take Jack with me. We have a baby sling so I'm planning on just carrying him around all night. Joe thinks this is dangerous and I should leave him at home. He will be somewhere between 2 and 3 weeks old, and I'm not leaving him at home, but I don’t want to be locked in the house either. (On a side note, I was on a boat when I was 12 days old. So maybe I have a different perspective than him.)
Last night Joe and I went to Target with our gift certificate we got at his work party. Of course we spent way more than they gave us. Julie mentioned to me that none of Mac's clothes fit – all the 0-3 month sizes are way too big and she didn't have anything in the newborn size. So I got two sleepers that are newborn, and a few extra onsies. Joe wanted some masculine hats, and we also needed wipes. Oh, and a new dog bed. And sweatpants for me (men's large Hanes sweatpants. Right now I do not own a better piece of clothing. And they were only $6.50)
I'm off to clean for the maids – they are going to be surprised there is no baby yet….
