A couple videos of recent events at our house (please forgive my goofy voice in any and all videos posted). First, Will's first real crawling!
Next, Will and Worden greet JT:
Love to all!
We took a long walking excursion around West Seattle last Sunday to see if gravity would work its magic on Radish. Here's a video from some beach time with Worden, which wraps up with a couple seconds of belly time and Dave's prediction.
And a couple more belly shots ...
My last visit to Dr. Block was last Friday, February 5th. She said I remain about 1 cm dilated but have progressed to about 80% effacement. Her prediction was that I would see her for another exam this Friday, February 12th, i.e. Radish likely won't make his debut before then. However, now that I'm officially on maternity leave, I've been taking long walks every day in hopes that perhaps he'll decide to arrive a little early. My Braxton Hicks contractions have increased in number and intensity at night (last night's was a bit of a doozy), so we'll see what that means. In the interim, I've been lightly "nesting." Haven't had the irresistable urge to scrub every last surface, but certainly feel compelled to run errands, finish off paperwork, cook up some meals for the freezer, and make that last run to Babies R Us. I suppose you're never fully "ready," but it's nice to have the time for a bit more preparation.
Love to all,
Alyssa, Dave, Radish and Worden
P.S. Worden is 100% fully recovered and back to his old self (as evidenced by his beach behavior). He's had to put up with his bed shifting to the other side of our bed to make room for the bassinet. While we occasionally hear a disgruntled sigh as he settles in, he seems to be accepting it (for now).
