We're now about 6 weeks from Optimus Prime's due date, and even though we don't have a crib or the baby's room 100% ready, we have been doing some baby preparations.
A few weeks ago, John was out of town all week. Our neighbors gave us a very nice Ergo baby carrier as a gift. Since John was gone and I was bored, I decided to try the carrier out. Since I don't have a baby yet, I decided that Portland would make a good substitution. It worked OK, but clearly the carrier was meant for a baby without a tail.
|He was a pretty good sport.|
|And then he got squirmy.|
|I don't think John would make a very good pregnant lady.|
Last, we spent a few weeks looking at rocking chairs. There aren't a whole lot of Mid-century or even just modern rocking chairs. I finally found one we both liked from Thrive, and we ordered it Labor Day weekend. It showed up this week. You know you're getting old when you're anxiously awaiting the arrival of your new rocking chair.
|Looks good in the living room and Nera approves.|
