Phew. Now that I've gotten that off my chest, let me tell you what the Poulsens have been up to this week! (Sorry it's been so long.)
Our friends had a DARLING, PERFECT, HEAVENLY little baby girl last Wednesday and Austin and I have had a ball visiting them and spending time with this precious newborn. We are SO very happy for the new parents; when I got the first picture of her after she was born I literally burst into tears (thank you, hormones) because I was overcome with joy with the arrival of this brand new baby. This has not helped our patience for our own little girl, however...we can't WAIT to meet our daughter and get to know her and hold her and snuggle and dress her and hang out and be a family : ) As far as the "baby name crisis" goes, I would call it more of a tentative/wait-and-see kind of situation. Mostly we just want her here with us!

I have doctor's appointments weekly, which is fine with me (the more updates the better!) and it is fun to see our baby girl on the ultrasound each time. My doctor always glows with praise for how well everything is going with both me and the baby - yay for healthy bodies! I am 36 weeks along, and with less than a month before my due date I feel like it can't come fast enough. Bring on the baby! (When she is good and ready, that is.) I love feeling her start kicking when she hears Austin's voice and being able to pinpoint her foot or bum sticking out on my tummy. Apparently she has very chubby cheeks and loves being cozy with her hands up by her face. She is just the greatest : )
|Austin finds new ways to entertain himself every time we|
go to the doctor. We're surprised we haven't been kicked out.
|We toured the two hospitals we have to choose from,|
and Austin's favorite part about this one was
the plant "headrest" in the lobby. Silly : )
|This was a focus group of elderlies in my section |
learning about Nooks. I half mocked, half supported.
