This past week was basically spent getting things together for Alden's arrival. I finished his blanket, sewed curtains and a little pillow, hung a few things on the wall, and bought a cute nightlight/lamp. Wally installed the smoke detector, moved some furniture in and the swing out, and installed the venetian blinds. So now he can come :)
I had Wally snip the wire to the music in the baby swing. Having "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" on my mind all day long was already driving me insane and I couldn't stop Rhianwen from pressing the music button. Mua ha ha...I'm so evil. She hasn't seemed to mind the lack of music so far.
We also have our bags packed and some backup babysitters in case we have to rush off to the hospital before Wally's mom gets here. Now that we are all ready, he'll probably wait 3 weeks before coming. Of course, I have this horrible gift of having to go to the hospital on holiday weekends, so maybe just maybe, he will come on the 4th, just to help me keep the trend.
We're enjoying the garden. Blackberries, corn, tomatoes, broccoli, and green beans so far.
I've tried pollinating our squash b/c they are not growing big squash, and I read that that happens b/c there are fewer bees and the squash doesn't get pollinated without them. I hope it works!
