still pregnant

March 1
Front Yard
We all voted today and this little miss dressed the part in her red, white, and blues.

March 2
Kids' Room
Second crib built = second baby being on the outside is getting closer!

March 3
Living Room
Just talking on her domino phones before bedtime.

March 4
Family day-date to see the Rodin exhibit. Leena wasn't so in to it. We had to resort to phone distraction to keep her quiet enough to make it through the entire thing.

March 5
Pad Thai Restaurant
Adult only date night. All we can muster in creativity and energy is going out to dinner. But an uninterrupted meal is a treasured time!

March 6
Kids' Room
Unfortunately this is the only photo I took today to show Andy Leena's run-in with a cat (not ours, though that wouldn't have surprised us).


March 7
We introduced her to showers when she was sick and now she asks for one nearly every night.

March 8
Engine 7
Just some hose folding at work.

March 9
Kids' Room
Leena is at Ducky Daycare and I have been dying to get my hands on their closet and make some sense of it. All the things on the floor and all the things in the closet. So satisfying, even if it did only look like that for about a day.

March 10
Kids' Room
One more of the prepping. Kiki got to town and brought the crib sheet for Tuco's bed. Pretty pleased with how great it looks with Mr. Snake!

March 11
Andy and Rick bucked up a little bit of wood today.

March 12
Kiki and the kiddos!

March 13
Thirty-eight weeks and counting. Thinking this kid is going to make an appearance any day now because, well, feeling huge and feeling other things.

March 14
Art lessons with Kiki. Leena's really improving. She wrote her name in all caps after getting marker all over her fingers.

March 15
Side Yard
Getting the garden going again, but this year we are trying raised beds. So we have to build them.

March 16
Side Yard
Ducky daycare yields another day of productivity. Finished the boxes by noon time! Here's the muscle overlooking his work. (I just swung the sledgehammer a few times hoping it would induce labor.)

March 17
When the baker bakes exactly what she wants: an all clementine fruit tart. Now that I see this photo, I'm pretty sure I had a dream about pastry cream last night...

March 18
Cousins! Hanging out and eating!

March 19
Family FaceTime with our new friend Indy and our old friends, his parents! He's giving us the ole' tongue hello.

March 20
Holy cow, this kid! She's starting to develop a camera smile and I think I love it.

March 21
Groundbreaking for the new shop. Leena is monitoring the depth of the trench, hip height is what we are going for.

March 22
Front Yard
Doing some seasonally festive activities. Note that it took three adults to keep Leena from dumping all the dyes out and cracking all the eggs. She was a good little helper though. Andy just sat back holding Porter and laughing.

March 23
Station 7
I'm pretty sure the location just told you what you were looking at. But I'll go on with more about the day. Andy got transferred to Station 5 (our neighborhood) and the guys came and poured the concrete slab for the shop.

March 24
Lewis Ginter
Nearing the due date (I didn't think we'd be making it this long, but I've also mentally changed the due date to April 1 because here we are, still pregnant) and feeling the emotions that come with Leena not being our sole attention holder. She's still so little and she's about to not be the baby anymore.

March 25
Unprompted adorable photo op seized by Andy.

March 26
Due date's come (and it's probably going to go), but we are hunting eggs. A great distraction and LB did a fine job spotting her loot. (They were filled with things like clementine slices, animal crackers, plastic frogs, pennies, and tiles. She doesn't care.)

March 27
Kiki got the girls matching outfits for Valentine's day. This is the best we could do for a group photo, but the joy captured is better than plain smiles.

March 28
Side Yard
Picked up our good dirt and now we are filling our beds. Again, trying to induce baby labor with manual labor and starting to wonder what this kid is waiting for.

March 29
Benefit of Kiki across the street. But they are watching a video of Gwyneth Paltrow read Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? and it's weird.

March 30
Having a morning coffee and treat date after dropping Leena off at Ducky's (man, are we lucky to have her so close and willing and great) and before ultrasound appointment to check on this tardy baby.

March 31
So that ultrasound appointment was actually today. And Tuco didn't pass all of the tests so we are getting induced tomorrow morning at 6 am. Ready or not! Leena's ready to spend the weekend with Ducky! Our last photo as a family of three. Also, remember how I mentally changed the due date to April 1? I guess I knew.
