Final Days...

These are Raf's final days as an only child! It is hard to believe that soon we'll be a family of 4. Tomorrow I'll be 38 weeks and 5 days, which is the gestational age of Rafi when he arrived (though I had to be induced because of a kidney problem). I keep thinking that this kiddo will not be appearing for quite a while, even though today I am having so many contractions it's difficult to believe that we'll make it to the weekend.

Today may be the final time that I spend all day alone with Rafi. It was a lovely day, though a preschooler who wouldn't nap and a mama with some pretty distracting discomfort made for a LONG afternoon! He wasn't feeling especially independent, either, so it was a very interactive day, with lots of 'whys' and 'what happened'? and other continual questions!! I did feel a bit batty by the time Rich returned home.

We've had a busy but nice time with the Rafman. He's super interactive these days, which is both lovely (mostly lovely) yet exhausting. I'm wondering if it'll be easier with a newborn or whether I should soak up these days as a heavily pregnant, contracting mama! I have a feeling it's easier now.

Here are a few pics of the last few days.

Sleeping angel :)

Friday night chips and veggie burger.... and he found a bit of left over french bread! Very healthy!

Saturday lunch out... more chips.

Sunday morning banana-bread making. 

Cheesing it up for the camera.

Jumping in puddles.

Morning at the library.. grinning for some pictures to send to Daddy. 


  1. Lovely photos! And I'm thinking of you!! I can't believe it's October already. I'm on the edge of my seat! xoxo
