Solitude Standing #microbloggingMonday

So not much change from my last post. Still worried, but still standing. So is hub, thankfully. Hub’s foot is feeling better- not normal- but better. We thought he had an appointment on (last) Friday, but it was actually this Friday- a week and a day after making the appointment. Unfortunately we got all the way to the appointment before being corrected. Mom’s leg probably needs surgery, baby is still breach as far as I know. Appointment is tomorrow, then every 2 weeks until September!

I can’t believe baby is due next month!!! In some ways this doesn’t feel real. Even now that I am round and tired and ready-ish. The house isn’t ready at all, and hub on light duty, but we’ll get there. I need a double stroller (purchase) and to take down the play-yard and co-sleeper. Also, I need to sort out the newborn and 0-3 month clothing into piles by gendered and gender neutral and things that can be re-worn. I probably need some new basics but overall we are a reuse family for this baby.

About 7 weeks to go! Hopefully will have a happy update on the foot saga on Friday. 

Solitude stands in the doorway
And I'm struck once again by her black silhouette
By her long cool stare and her silence
I suddenly remember each time we've met

  1. Good luck with all of your "final" preparations. It's amazing how it so quickly goes from feeling surreal and far-off to right around the corner.

  2. I hope the last few weeks are easy. And that all falls into place.

  3. Hi! Just saw your post on my blog from February. Thank you so much for your concern. Things are great! Claire is doing incredibly well . . . her biggest issue these days is her pesky little brother, Caleb, who joined our family in November 2014. I'll post an update soon but wanted to reach out to you personally to thank you for your concern and your kind post. xoxo
