catch up

it's been a while, so if i don't do this quick and with little detail, i'll never post about the last few weeks. wait-i pretty much took a sleeping vacation, so there isn't much to tell!

christmas: nash's second christmas proved to be quite lucrative for the little toddler. and i say "toddler" because he is in fact toddling on his two little legs (finally). not only did he make out like a bandit with gifts galore from friends and family, but he got to spend tons of quality time with his maternal grandparents. he was an angel on the flight to PA making no more than a few happy peeps. he was less of an angel on the way back, but all in all i'd say he's a trooper of a traveler.

pa: lots of sleeping in, napping, and watching the modelthon (america's next top model). nash had his best moment yet in 'the history of nash'. at dinner one night he stood up in his high chair and began to deliver a sermon to the masses. he literally went on and on, gesturing and pointing to the heavens, for fifteen minutes while we all laughed ourselves to tears. i think i managed to capture a bit of it on my new video cam (yay!), so i'll have to post that soon. haven made out like a bandit on the pa trip and now has close to a full wardrobe (but that won't stop me...).

and now we're back home: steve came back a week ago and nash and i came back last night. our first day back was a busy one with haven's 20-week ultrasound with the perinatologist. everything looks perfect and the doctor managed to get ahold of my neurologist to squeeze me in next week so i can get some treatment for my ms symptoms. anyway, haven is definitely a girl and is measuring a little big (13 oz) and so my due date is now may 26th, although my c-section will probably remain scheduled for the 21st.

and today is my birthday. the big 27. it feels weird to be so old in numbers. we celebrated with the bffs and the duncans by going to dinner at bombay house (tradition) and then saw juno (loved it). stevie bevie (with the help of the in-laws) got me a kurt kinetic trainer for my bike so i can train and ride in the house! i'm so excited. my goal is to be able to do the ms bike tour again this summer (only a month after little haven comes). thanks to everyone for the gifties and birthday calls. i wish i had more birthdays so that holwonder would leave me messages with her beautiful singing voice.....

Happy belated birthday!! It sounds like you guys had a great holiday and you all made out pretty well with the gifties.

I too loved Juno- a new classic for me.
