It has been a cloudy, cool week here in KC -- hopefully May will bring some sun and warmer weather to us Missourians. Besides the weepy weather, I had another reason to pout this week . No cell phone. Thank goodness I was born in the 20th century because I'm not sure I could go longer than a week with out my iphone. It is my connection to the my husband, family, friends, email, news, FB, and more. This is not the first time I've lost my cell phone; about a year ago I misplaced my Sprint Centro which actually turned out to be a blessing because I got to jump on my in-laws family plan and receive my beloved iphone and unlimited data package. This time is different though -- I can't even blame it on pregnancy. Mike and I are sure that my phone is in our home -- somewhere. We both saw it (and, I used it) Sunday morning before we left for church and we know I didn't take it with us because the first thing I did on the way to church was grab for my phone in my purse and it wasn't there, so I figured I left it at home and we would find it when we got back. Boy, was I wrong! After 20 hours of searching (home, car, purse) Mike and I gave up and resigned to the fact that I was just going to have to get a new one. A very depressing day. So, I'll be sending a FB message out asking for your phone numbers soon! I hope the baby gets Mike's keen organizational skills and not my absentmindedness. :)
Baby Milestones This Week: Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies respond best to tastes they've already had via amniotic fluid.
Obsessions this Week: Getting organized. In my search for my cell phone I started to clean and organize (which if I'm in the right mood is actually quite fun for me). The more I cleaned the more I organized and it spurred a whole week of cleaning and organizing. I know it is too early to be "nesting" but I do desire to make an orderly home for my husband and children. Hopefully I can keep this up when the baby arrives. One website I love to use is flylady.com. She has some really good tips about how to get started and stay organized! Thank you flylady!
