Still waiting...

I am becoming horribly uncomfortable in the last 2 weeks of this pregnancy. In fact, even though I'm not superstitious in the least, I invited my parents to come down for the weekend (when I was pregnant with Noah, they were coming down and met us at the hospital). While I haven't gone into labor, we did have a nice visit with them. Unfortunately it rained the entire time they were down here so no one got to play outside, but Noah did get to play "play play", and drink "cose" from a big boy cup. Plus, Grandpa read him stories at bed time.

Saturday, Noah spent some quality time with grandma and grandpa, and Ryan and I went out on probably the last date we will have before baby ladybug comes. While we were out and about, we decided to stop at Toys R Us to see if they had a tricycle that we could get for Noah. At Christmas time, Grandma and Grandpa Mahlberg duplicated a Christmas gift that we had gotten Noah (the Little People Nativity set). So, we had a Wal-Mart gift card that needed to be used. We hadn't found a tricycle at Wal-Mart that Noah was big enough for, but we did at Toys R Us. In fact, it's adjustable, so he can continue to grow and still be able to use it. We also got him a helmet as well- helmets were hard to find, because Noah has a small head. The smallest size is 3+, which Noah isn't. Surprisingly, all the 3+ helmets varied in head sizes, so we bought the smallest one we could find. Guess who's on it? That's right, Mickey- I really wanted the Cars one for him, but that one was really big.

Anyway, Noah loves the tricycle! He's still trying to figure out how to pedal it- he'll pedal it when someone is pushing him, but otherwise he pushes it with his feet. So, thanks Grandma and Grandpa Mahlberg! (Even if Christmas was 4 months ago).


  1. Oh my word - those pics of Noah on his tricycle are too cute!!

    Sorry to hear, you're feeling uncomfortable. I remember feeling that way too. And anxious! I just couldn't wait to see each baby!!

    Hang in there.

    (and if you get desperate, I hear a good 'ol tablespoon of castor oil can get things rollin!)


  2. Awww how cute. Aren't you guys the safest--Rori doesn't have a helmet...

  3. Had a great time with my Ray...and just say no the castor oil...Hackney onions are much better at starting labor...Maybe Ladybug will be here today? Love MOM
