Taking long walks and playing in the park:
Making a popcorn and cranberry garland for the tree:
Enjoying the lights in the City and in our living room:
Counting down the days with a simple, homemade-by-me advent calendar:
Making gingerbread houses:
We've also been knitting, baking (T's mom has made biscuits for us twice now...as well as cookies, homemade Chex Mix and several yummy meals), reading, listening to lots of Perry Como Christmas songs, sleeping in, staying up late and eating too many Christmas candies.
I've been drinking tons of red raspberry leaf tea, walking up and down stairs, meditating and yesterday my mother-in-law surprised me with a prenatal massage at the local spa...all this in hopes of getting my labor on. But nothing yet. I'll have contractions for a spell and then they'll fade away. My due date is tomorrow, and I didn't think I'd still be pregnant by this weekend, but here I am getting bigger and bigger. Even though I'm fully effaced and 3 cm dilated, I'm not that uncomfortable. I just can't wait to hold that baby.
