The W Family Chronicles


Posted on: December 9, 2008

It’s been several weeks since my last update.  Again.  I have been neglecting my other blogs as well, so I guess it’s just a symptom of the lack of time I have right now.  Things are going well.  We’re still shooting for a c-section date of January 20, so unless I go into labor (unlikely!) Baby V should be born that day.  Which just happens to be 6 weeks away from today…yikes!  I’m starting to really evaluate what we need for her arrival and try to figure out what we need to get and pick the small things up here and there as we have the cash or I see them in consignment and/or thrift shops.  Luckily I’ve gotten a lot of hand-me-downs from friends so she will be well outfitted through her first year!

I am scheduled for an ultrasound next week to check her size and position, the position of my placenta, and also fluid levels.  My doctor is concerned that I may have high levels of amniotic fluid…which would explain a lot of my discomfort!  Most of the time this is not a big deal, so I’ll be praying for that to be the case if they really are high.  Assuming everything checks out then, I’ll be on weekly appointments until birth!  I cannot believe it’s getting so close…

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
