My coworkers threw me an awesome potluck lunch today for my going away.  There was TONS of food!  It was really good.  And they all put money towards a gift and I ended up with a $300. gift certificate for Crocodile Kids!  Nice!  So pleased :)

Had a great weekend in Vic.  Highlights included:
  • meeting L's 7-week old daughter Taylor and chatting with the Alm sisters about everything baby and mom related.
  • meeting A's 5-week old son James and chatting with the Whetung family and friends about more baby stuff and mom stuff - lots of laughs :)
  • finishing a puzzle with my bro and dad.
  • doing word jumbles with my mom.
  • hanging with my bro and just talking
  • the whetung's awesome pastries :)
  • new baby presents!
Now it is back to work for 2.5 weeks.  I can't wait to be done.  I am working on my post-baby calendar.  I am writing in all the activites avaialble to do after baby arrives in a day planner so that when inspiration hits I can just open it up and see where I need to go. So far I have penciled in:
  •  weekly post-partum meet-ups at the midwifery clinic. 
  • weekly mom & baby yoga at the studio by my house
  • twice weekly "stroller striders" walks
I need to figure out when the family place drop ins are for bby and van and when the first session of mom & baby swim is at the pool by my house.

I bought 2 comics last weekend.  It was totally random.  We met up with our friends from Abbotsford in Port Moody for coffee and there is a comic book shop nearby. 

It got me thinking about Cam of course.  Especially because one of the comics is a DnD Eberon campaign comic.  I read the first one (a Buffy comic) on Sunday.  Today I was reading the DnD comic at waves while I had my tea before work.  Then when I got to work things got a little creepy.

*background info * I used to work with a girl (T) who believed she was a medium.  She was part of some kind of spiritual group where they got together to commune with spirits and develop thier powers as mediums.

So today I got this email from T:

Hey girl, I was just wondering if you've picked out a name for your little angel yet?

FYI Cam won't let me sleep tonight and he is showing me that he's been watching during your whole pregnancy with excitement and nervousness - excited because he feels like a proud "uncle" would (that's what he feels he would be known as if he were still here), and nervous because pregnancy is alien territory for him and therefore nerve wracking :) He's on the edge of his seat :)  He's also very proud of his Lia for embarking on such a journey.  He says "if there's anyone who can do this pregnancy thing, she can." And he means it!  He knows you can do anything and is so proud to know you and to call you his friend.

Happy Friday sweetie!

Big hugs xo



Weird.

Not sure how I should reply to that one...

P.S. to deadkittens - I realised that I never picked up my box of stuff from your place.  (I was taking the bus home that day when we went to Cams and you took it for me so I wouldn't have to carry it - it is labeled with my name.)  I should probably do that before you have to move it to the new place!  Let me know when.

Can't wait for tomorrow's appt. to see our little girlie and see how big she is growing!  We have placed bets.  Angelo is guessing she is about 5lbs now - I am guessing 51/2.  We'll see...

If you know a team player with a great attitude and some administrative/office experience please pass on the word!  I think there is a good chance that this might actually go to someone from outside :) *fingers crossed*

In other news I had a great visit with my sister last night :)  A had to work late so we had a great one-on-one visit :)
I can't wait to see Stacy today and talk babies, baby names, baby plans, baby stuff... :)  I always feel like I am boring my non-pregnant friends/coworkers but I really have a one-track mind right now!

I am definately not shopping for any more baby clothes!
On top of all the clothes I got from Angelo's mom and sister my old coworker from the Housing department said her daughter may want to get rid of a bunch of baby clothes that her daughter has grown out of.  Yay! 

Mom's lunch today was great but it ended up going a bit late (or maybe a lot late).  Now I am not sure if I should say something to my boss...  oh well...

Weekend!
Payday!
Mom is coming tomorrow!
Yay!
