I made a loaf of banana bread yesterday. Yes, Mom, I said banana bread. It turned out really good for my first try! There’s just a little bit of it left for tomorrow.
That’s been about the extent of my life the past couple of days. I haven’t really done much. Yesterday we watched 3 different sports on TV – NASCAR, football, and baseball! And all my people won – #48 Jimmie Johnson for NASCAR (our other driver, #24 Jeff Gordon, finished 9th), Green Bay Packers for football, and Boston Red Sox won Game 2 of the World Series! I’m not usually a Red Sox fan, but for the next week or so I will be cheering for them.
Today I went back to the midwife for another recheck on my incision. It’s healing slowly, but at least it looks a whole lot better than it did a couple of weeks ago. I go back again on Thursday. . . Robbie and I had fun playing after he woke up from his nap this afternoon. We play things like “So Big” (I ask How big is Robbie? and then I open his arms up wide and go “This Big”), This Little Piggy, and pat-a-cake. He’s starting to smile more and more and he’s just too cute!! He’s over 12 pounds now – I’ll find out exactly how big he is at his 2 month checkup on 2 November.
The weather here has been unseasonably warm lately. It was almost 80 today, and the normal for this time of year is in the 60’s. At least it’s not in the 90’s every day like it was a few months ago. It has been kind of cloudy and dreary and when the sun came out today, that was a welcome sight!
I hope everyone has a great last week of October!
