I've been enjoying my break and spending more time with Love Bug. She's taking a music class and a gym class, which she will continue with Daddy after he arrives this weekend. She's been doing more learning activies too and now knows two colors- green and blue! She also knows a few letters and can say she's 2 (with two fingers up). We taught her to count like the French and Italians- starting with the thumb as one, the index finger as two, and so on. It think it's much easier to do and actually makes more sense. Just a warning- if you're ever in Europe and ordering food, don't hold up the American two fingers, because they will think you mean three, since they've mentally counted your thumb. Susan, does it work the same way in Germany?
I've also finished all my shopping for the baby. We got a bassinet with the playard, since he will also sleep in it on trips once he's outgrown the bassinet. We also got the baptism stuff (since his Christening is a few weeks after he's born). Finally, we got a double stroller. Go check it out- it's actually more of a sit n' stand type stroller and it has a neat attachment on the front to hold a baby carrier too (you can see this on the third picture). It's the only stroller for two kids that fits in our tiny, Italian elevator- very exciting!
No baby yet and we're still on target for a c-section in a few weeks. B will let you know when Dragonfly arrives and how we're all doing! Until then, I'll be praying for cooler weather and an easy recovery.
