I'm hoping!! No plans this weekend. Well, probably going to do some cleaning. My sister-in-law is going through a nesting phase (she's not pregnant) and came over and helped me get the nursery all together. DH watched her kiddos while she organized and I supervised.

DH's mother and father are going home tomorrow. I have LOVEDDDDD having them here and they have been amazing but I am ready to have my home back to myself and get Darion back on his nice steady pattern of sleeping and eating again. He is all over the place right now because my MIL is always picking him up and trying to hold him even when he is sleeping. I've had to get her to leave him be when he is sleeping.
Anyway.. this weekend I am going to just relax and try to get some sleep before DH has to go back to work on Monday.
I am now hoping too! I am 40 weeks tomorrow! My dog's staples from his knee surgery came out this morning so I feel ready to have this baby now! I have a midwife appt this afternoon, hoping to be dilated some. then going walking with my SIL and planning on eating a pineapple tonight.
Plans for this weekend: Tomorrow afternoon, my mom and I get to deliver a horse to a little girl in town that has been wanting a horse for many many years. I am super excited about it. Her parents approached me about helping them find an affordable horse for her first one knowing that I have a lot of contacts and might be able to help them. It was perfect timing, since we have a horse that should be a perfect fit for her that we had just decided to re-home and for the right home we were willing to just give her to someone. So they are going to take her and try her out while my mom is in town and if it works then they are going to keep her if not we will try again. I am so looking forward to seeing the look on the little girls face when she finds out tomorrow! Then I will just hang out with my mom, do a little cleaning at the house and wait for baby to decide to come.
I want to go into labor immediately. I'm laying on the favorite couch right now and I wouldn't be upset if my water broke on it, that is how ready I am. Other than that, I'm getting the kids stuff ready to go spend the weekend with some family.
We are having LOs baptism tomorrow and then a big family gathering after. I'm excited to have him baptized because we don't believe in taking him out until after, so I've been cooped up for the past week. I'm not looking forward to everyone wanting to hold and love on him and having to be the mean greedy momma. I will definitely be bringing my moby to keep him sheltered a bit more.
Sunday is church, not sure if I'm ready to bring him there yet as his eat/sleep pattern is still unpredictable. We do have some grocery shopping to do though and then just relaxing.
No real plans here. Hoping to be able to spend some time outdoors...maybe let Grace run around at the park, since the weather should be nice. DH is off Sat/Sun now, so that'll be nice. Other than that, just the usual...family time, laundry, etc.
I'm cutting a fresh pineapple tonight and wil be walking
LOL I ate a little pineapple a while ago. Mostly because reading about all of you eating pineapple made me want some and partly because I'm kinda hoping I will go into labor this weekend. I didn't really care one way or the other until DH called a little earlier and told me that it looks like he is going to have work out of town next week. I don't know if it's going to put me in labor or not but man oh man is my LO moving like crazy now, lol.
I've got quite the social calendar lately- very unlike me! I had friends visit yesterday and today. Tomorrow Ingrid and I are heading to a friends' baby shower and then I have some errands to run after. Hopefully she keeps for a few stops! Then on Sunday we've got a birthday party for one of my son's friends at a gymnastics place that we think he'll love. The whole family is going to go- even though DH thinks he should stay home.
It's nice feeling like I can get out and about. I've been using my mai tei with her and that's great. I used my sling too for a grocery trip- if I can get nursing down in both of them, we'll be golden to be out and about as much as we'd like.
I did all of my cleaning today, so I'll just have to try to keep things in order. I have to take care of my grandma all weekend, plus take Brooklyn to karate tomorrow & get some groceries. On Sunday, there's a tour at the hospital we are thinking about going to, since out sibling class was cancelled.
