I haven’t posted a blog in ages. For those of you trying so desperately to live vicariously through me (and I know there are a lot), here’s a rundown on the past three weeks. I hope it suffices.
Since September 1, I’ve been to the doctor four times (ob-gyn twice, endocrinologist, and maternal fetal doc). I’ve joined a Bible study (moms.com) on Thursday mornings at The Chapel. LSU has won three games. Hans and I have had lunch or dinner with six different couples. I got a flu shot. I’ve been trained on a new insulin pump (www.minimed.com) that constantly reads my blood sugar (via another device attached to me). I’ve read “Blink,” by Malcolm Gladwell. I’ve gotten up to Harry Potter Book #5. I’ve eaten a bag and a half of Totino’s Pizza Rolls and two pints of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia FroYo. I’ve seen my family more than I have in the past five years. I’ve watched more Arrested Development than I care to admit. And I’ve been to Houston for a baby shower and to visit my cousin and her family. The latest pics I have are from that shower, so I shall share now:
There we are: Hans, me, and baby Ethan
The family resemblance is striking, I know.
My wonderful hosts, Hans’ cousin Aimee and aunt Laurie

Josh, Hans, and their twin shirts
Watching us open gifts is riveting.
Uncle Jon does his best to capture the excitement.

Everyone else was impressed with his mattress-balancing act.
“You know, Sam, this is the best shower I’ve been to.”

And there you go. I’ll try to blog again before the baby’s born. Speaking of, the due date is December 2. (But my doc said he’d be here before then.) On Tuesday, he weighed in at 3 lbs, 1 oz. And I feel him kicking my stomach all the time. 🙂
