We've arrived

Well, we finally made it down to Miami. We got in last Thursday evening and have been getting our new house ready for move in since then. I'm a little behind on taking belly pictures because of all the craziness.

We had our first Midwife appointment on Monday at the clinic where Hilary works. It went really well. Luckily the vampires didn't need any more blood from me since the docs in Toronto nearly drained my body on multiple occasions. My next appointment is in one month's time to test for gestational diabetes.

In the meantime, we're working away on doing some minor renovations on our new house which I absolutely love! I can't wait to be able to move in and make it our own. We're expecting our stuff to arrive from Canada in about 2 weeks, which should hopefully give us enough time to finish the painting and replacing the light fixtures and baseboards. I will post up some pictures when the renos are done.

On the road

Well, We're now almost all the way down to Miami. Tomorrow is the last leg of the journey. Jim says that means we're closer to meeting Morgan.

I've discovered some interesting facts about traveling while being PG.
1st - there are NEVER enough public bathrooms along the road... and when they do exist, wow, who wants to go in them??? lol
2nd - seatbelts, while absolutely necessary, are VERY uncomfortable.... especially when one has to stop short.
3rd - apparantly whoever designed cars was determined to see if they could cause massive ankle swelling.
4th - there is never enough water in the car, no matter how many cases you prepack, which, of course, leads to realization number 1.

Mourning my inner punk

Well, with all good things, something has to give. Today I had to remove all my possibly interfering piercings. It is a sad day. I'm mourning my inner punk. Thankfully Jim can be very gentle with pliers.

And we have a name

Jim and I have done a lot of thinking about this and have come up with a name suitable for our little girl. The world will meet Morgan Jade Cable this November. Since all of the books say that Morgan can now hear external voices, Jim has taken to reading chapters of Winnie the Pooh to her nightly. We're thinking of adding Dr. Seuss to her repertoire. We've been discussing a Seuss style for her nursery instead of Pooh since Jim thinks that Pooh is just too common. :)

I may eventually change the name of the site to Morgan's Page, but for the moment we're keeping the LittleBear since, well, I've become quite attached to it. However, Jim is determined that Morgan will recognize her name in his voice by the time of her birth, so he's preparing her already.
