|07:27 pm - Slimming down my flist|
I'm paring down my livejournal in another fit of nesting.
If you've been unfriended and would like to ask me why, I will answer.

|04:32 pm - *happy sigh*|
scubajim and I took the day off today and went up to Lusk Caves. Now, you can walk through the caves and enjoy the experience, or you could rock hop to try not to get your feet wet and be playful that way...
...or you could put on a helmet and belly crawl through tiny cracks and openings, twisting your shoulders 180 degrees off from your hips to get around the corners, scratching and bruising up your limbs/stomach/back, all in the name of fun.
I am so thankful that I am not claustrophobic and that I am flexible.
I am so sore.
Going to bed after a shower and trying to get the cramp out of my back that is squeezing my spine.
I'm not 23 any more. =(. lol.

Her head is rounding so she no longer looks like Baby Voldemort.
Her eyes are much clearer, so you can see pupils and flecks of yellow in her blues. She looked fish-eyed for awhile.
She has a cute little button nose.
And she's growing. She's starting to move her head in order to reach for things she wants. She is using her arms to push against things she doesn't want or to pull desired objects nearer. She's also spending much more time awake and looking around at the big wide world.
We've been taking her out for walks in the woods nearly everyday this past week. She's been sung to and serenaded with a guitar. She's been held, cuddled, cherished, and adored...
I love that baby girl. I am excited to live through the rest of the moments we have allotted us.
And she has such amazing parents...you two are positively superb. I love you both so much.
okay - gushing over, must clean house.

Mom is great.
Baby is wonderful. She is gorgeous. She is also latching on right away, and the time between when the head first made an appearance and when we saw her toes was less than 20 minutes. There was one giant push and head-ears-arm-arm-body all popped out. She was barely caught!
7.08 was her weight, and she was born at 5:50-ish p.m. she's a tall baby, and small, and really really adorable. She doesn't have that new-baby wrinkled grape thing going.
Dad and I got through it. That's all I'll say for now. Wow, what a day.
*hugs* and thanks for the support.
we're going into the hospital
good blessings and prayers are welcome
all is good, no worries
|09:10 am - Baby coming|
We have been up since 2am Tuesday morning. I have slept about 10 hours since waking Monday morning.
The midwife says that once she is dilated to four centimeters, it will take an average of another 10 hours before the baby arrives.
I am tired, but don't want to sleep more than "Mom." Her contractions are hitting the yelling and swearing phase, and it twists my heart each time. There are a couple of other people here with me, and I am enjoying a quiet break to pound on this mother-beeping keyboard as hard as my fingers would like.
I am torn between feeling like there is nothing that I can do, and feeling like anything I try would be useless.
And I can't believe that I am looking for support or for help in this time. I mean - I'm not "Mom."
The other two here have been kind...reminding me that I can sleep, and that I should have fluids, and generally asking me how I am.
I wish I had more to say - pounding on this keyboard is comforting.
I'm glad I'm not alone.
I'm glad I decided years ago that I wasn't going to ever get pregnant.

|11:20 am - Lessons learned from gardening|
Gloves help you to a) not cut your own fingers with your garden shears and b) not get bitten alive by mosquitoes.

|03:05 pm - I took Gabriel out for the afternoon...|
and kept feeling like a woman in man's clothing...even with impromptu side-burns and guy-ish make-up.
It was a touch hard undoing Gabrielle from the night before. You can only make your hands change so often in a 24 hour period.
I do like the man-outfit though, except for the slight difficulty in breathing with a chest-binder.
