At Jill's last doctor appointment, we learned that Janny can come any time now. She's very unlikely to wait past her due date of Mar 13.
I felt like the last few months slogged by as we dealt with winter and the extra rest that pregnancy demands. But now I'm getting excited. I keep waking up when Jill gets up for her frequent 'nose powdering sessions', thinking this might be it.
Clara isn't resting on her laurels until lil' sis shows up. She's taken a fancy to playing with water (we put her in our shower so that she can pour with abandon) and reading books. The best part of reading books is that she demands to sit right on our lap for reading time. She doesn't sit still for much else.Her 7th tooth arrived this week. She enjoys eating with her own spoon. She get a surprisingly good fraction of food in her mouth each bite. Also note that she likes water bottles/cups.
We have some wonderful friends. Since we're at often home not doing much, Neal and Christine have been coming over to hang out with us. Clara enjoys the attention.
Finally, a note about peas. I hated peas as a kid but rarely had to eat them since my mom also hated them. Well, peas are easy to cook, and Clara doesn't mind them so they are often on the menu. And you know what? They taste good. The texture is still odd, slightly mushy after the initial crunch, but they have a pleasant sweetness. Didn't they used to taste like dishwater? Has modern breeding improved them? Have I changed?
