Yesterday Kate and I were at a holiday party when all of a sudden she looked at me all funny like and grabbed her belly. I of course gave her the “did your water break” look which has become my response to almost all of her movements. She smiled and said, “Bing! Turkey’s Done!” She then pointed to her belly button which had given up the inny fight and switched over to an outie. Zig had obviously shifted downward and is getting ready to make his debut any day now. He is riding low in the belly and is getting quite cramped in there. A few kicks to the ribs, you can pat his butt pretty easily on the right side of the belly, and when he stretches you can see his elbow as clear as day. Luna, the cat, loves listening to him in the belly and purrs to let him know he should come out soon. She has no idea that she is no longer going to be the baby in the family.
Christmas in Kansas! We went and saw the houses with all the crazy lights before they take them down. It was amazing living in College Hill for Christmas and seeing all of the neighborhood lit up. Very festive, occasionally hilarious, and always best enjoyed with egg nog and hot cider.
The office threw us a great baby shower and gave us a gift certificate to Target that we used to buy the crib. I thought I was walking into a conference call and had no idea it was coming! I LOVE the people I get to work with in my office, they make my job as rewarding as it can be.
Happy New Years everyone! See you next year!
