For the last couple of weeks, I have been too busy/too crabby to blog much.  So, here is your long, long overdue update!

My last birthday without arranging child care...

My last birthday without arranging child care...

My birthday seemed to have been a couple of weeks ago, and for the first time, I just could not have cared less.  I spent the day at my Awesome Little Job ™ and then Jeff took me to The Modern for dinner.  The food was, as usual, spectacular, although we were there on 1/2 price bottle of wine night, and everyone around us was having good times with a beverage that I have not been able to partake in for almost six months.  Not that I’m counting.  Or counting down till the next one.  (Who’s bringing Bailey’s to the delivery room??)

I spent the week before Easter doing the spring cleaning Chez Sekhon, as we were having the Sekhons over for Easter brunch.  I figured that not only did it give me an excuse to finally do all the things around the house I have been neglecting for the last few months, but I’m going to be pawning off the rest of the holidays this year on my mother-and-sisters-in-law.  (Sorry, girls!)  The house was clean, the food was good, but the best part was that it was Sydney’s first Easter (pictures by my father-in-law, the proud Grandpa):

Grandma brought Sydney a "basket" for Easter of books and stacking rings with all sorts of sounds and textures.  We have another reader in the family!

Alison and Sydney.  Syd was trying to catch a taste of her dress...is there anything cuter than baby tongue?

For most of the time since Easter, I have had a horrible time sleeping.  Thanks to awesome pregnancy hormones, I have had not only my usual battery of vivid dreams, but nightmares almost every night.  And that is when I can sleep – despite Unisom and trying to wear myself out, I’ve had almost no sleep for the last week.  Last night, I could only sleep for about forty five minutes at a time.  Oddly, I feel pretty good today.  I’m not sure if this is entirely pregnancy-related, or if it’s just my usual every few months insomnia, but it can end now.  I only have about three more months before I have a newborn in the house, and I have to stock up on my sleep now!

Coming Up:

*Wednesday is the Just Between Friends preview sale, where I will be looking for a highchair and whatever other cuteness I can find for our little one.  Christy will be coming with me, as Jeff has the condo association meeting.  (I am guessing that Jeff is glad I am not going to the association meeting with him, as I have had it up to here with the association, but that’s a story for another time).

*Thursday I have my 25 week appointment at the OB (we are a week off from the usual schedule due to the perinatal visits).  Shouldn’t be anything terribly exciting.

*First week in May I will  be back at the immunologist’s office to work out a birth plan with relation to the HAE.

*Week after that, we’ll be back at the perinatal doc’s for another ultrasound (!) and hopefully an agreement between all the doctors on how to handle labor.

Wow.  It’s almost like this is actually going to happen soon!

Also, WE HAVE A NAME!  And we are not telling, so don’t even ask.
