7 Quick Takes Friday...4


I've been hooked on Greek God's plain yogurt again.  I occasionally buy the honey flavor.  But just last week I've decided that I wanted to try plain again. Oh, it's so much better than the honey.  I mash half a banana in the yogurt as a sweetener.  It's so good.



Even though I'm REALLY tired, I've decided I don't care if the baby comes late.  I think I've just accepted that I gestate longer than 40 weeks.  Maybe I won't quite go 10 days over this time...
Let's talk dates.  If I go 10 days over this time, she will be born on the 26th.  And I like odd numbers, so maybe we could do 9 days over for the 25th, which is my Dad's birthday, or the 27th.
Then again, my in-laws have this weird thing where almost everyone in the family has a birthday on the same number day... not the same month but on the same number.  Like my husband and his sister were both born on the 11th.  My nephew and Father in Law on the 14th.  My son and MIL born on the 23rd.  And so on and so on.  So, if I had the baby on the 18th, only 2 days over due date, she would have the same number day as my husband's grandpa, her great grandpa.  Then there's always the discussion on when would be the best time for my husband to talk off work.  At this point, he will run into Memorial Day, so he gets a little extra bonus day off at home with us.
LOL, she'll probably come tomorrow.  I had to laugh a little, we just got our car seat today.  Even though I'm having a home birth, we thought it might be a good idea to have one.  I guess we have it in our mind that there is still plenty of time... maybe that's why I haven't started labor yet....

My son picked this flower for me at the park...


 Then picked this next one to give to the dog.

Then she ate it.

We had a fire on our little BBQ the other day.  I think it was a grease fire.  It was awesome to come out side with smoke puffing out of the BBQ and opening the lid to find this huge fire.  


We all had appointments this week at my midwife's office.  There's two midwives, both are Naturopathic Doctors.   So they also do appointments for adults as well as paediatrics.   I LOVED having Luke go there instead of a regular doctor.   They are so much better informed about natural ways to healing and preventing things than regular doctors.  Like, instead of being told to have Luke take tylonol at night for his two year molars, they just mixed up some homoeopathic medicine for him.  It has been working well too.  It feels good to find a doctor that you can trust and rely on.  I haven't felt that way before.

Luke got finger paints yesterday.  This is his first happy face that he drew.  I couldn't believe it.  He hasn't really drawn anything specific yet... so this was a first.  He really loves painting and drawing.  We usually do it most days.


My dad sent me this funny email... Enjoy

The Broken Mower

When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that
I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had something else to take care
of first, the truck, the car, playing golf - always something more important
to me.
Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point. When I arrived home
one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily
snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a
short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when
I came out again I handed her a toothbrush. I said, "When you finish cutting
the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway."

The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.

Moral to this story: Marriage is a partnership in which one person is always
right, and the other is the husband.

I love doing things like this because I can actually come up with things to talk about.  Then I also get to write down and remember my week.  See you next Friday!

LOL, I am cracking up at the last one.

Okay, so the yogurt. I don't like the flavors that brand offers, but I did buy a honey to try it, and a plain to try it with some strawberries (although I ate all the strawberries already). I love the Zoi vanilla, I think that's my fave.

I think you should just have the baby on the 23rd now (if you don't have her today, the day I picked) because then she and Luke can share their birthday. Although I guess some kids don't like that, I think it's cool.

Sooo funny about Misu eating the flower, and cute that Luke gave it to her.

Wow, I can't believe Luke painted a face! That's really good for his age. Michael still doesn't even draw any shapes yet, not even circles, unless you ask, and then it's this really weird warped looking thing.

I feel like I am reading and responding to 7 mini posts when you do these, lol.

I don't why I like the plain so much. I'll have to try the vanilla.
The 23rd is Ben and my guess... At least that's what we wrote down on the family guessing paper.
Luke is so obsessed with painting and drawing I can't believe it.

Eek it's so exciting that it's almost baby time for you!! I'll be keeping your family in my prayers as the big day approaches, whenever it ends up being :)
