Home stretch

Today we officially reached 35 weeks. We're in the home stretch, and I'm really feeling so excited about the prospect of having another little boy. I confess that I had a few days of gender disappointment when we discovered we were having another boy, but soon after we found out I couldn't imagine it being any different.  Now we're very close to meeting him, and all the difficulties we've had seem very much worth it.

We do have a lot to do. Installing the car seat (not sure of how to configure the seats in my car.. any suggestions for placing an infant and a convertible seat in a car that would take 3 seats?). I need to get moving and order some cloth diapers so I can wash and organize them. I also need to work on getting a few things for Raf for when he comes to meet Toast - as gifts from his baby brother. I did order him a sweet little teeshirt with a red train on it, and we've talked about getting him a toddler camera and a new bridge for his train set. Oh, and then I ought to really repack bags (hastily packed when I was admitted for one of the hospital stays a few weeks ago.)

Baby Toast's little sleepers came and today I washed them... they are so diddy.

People have been incredibly kind and today, as I ordered a couple of things from our Amazon wish list, I discovered that we have at least a couple of secret shoppers who have bought up a few things. It would be a bit of an understatement to say that I was pretty touched. There may have been some tears and a few murmurings of gratitude for some really phenomenal friends.


  1. They are soooo cute :) I can't wait to see them on the cute, sweet junior Rafi!!!

  2. Eeeeee I'm so excited. And shall I tell you what my mum said today when we are out? Perhaps if you are well enough, dad and I can treat you to go to see Alex and your friends in America. So maybe I'll get to see you all. I'm working so hard to be well. I want to meet toast and see rafi and your new family. I love you

  3. So close, Alex. I can't wait to see little Toast! And see Rafi's interaction with him.
