And more baby news ...

Sorry about not yet posting baby shower pictures. I know they are eagerly awaited. The problem is I was checking our camera and we have a bunch of bad photos. By “bad” I mean, they are shots from weird angles, mostly candid pictures where no one is looking at the camera, and are shot sort of haphazardly. This is because Jojo and I were quite busy entertaining guests and would only grab our camera and shoot pictures when we had a spare moment. I am waiting for the pictures from my sister-in-law, Tracy’s, camera and the ones from my brother-in-law, Jay’s. For one thing, they have better cameras and were able to take better shots. I’ll post those pics as soon as I get copies just cause I think those pictures do more justice showcasing Beanie’s shower.

In other baby news. We had our doctor’s appointment again yesterday. All is going just fantastically well. Thank God. Beanie is growing amazingly fast. She is now almost 5 pounds and is about 14 and a half inches long. Isn’t that incredible? She also moves A LOT these days – she must be doing some baby gymnastics in there cause I feel her tumbling around all the time. Dr. Chen’s only advise is for me to take things a bit easier. I’ve been feeling some pain in my lower back and around my groin area – so I’ve been advised to minimize standing for long periods of time, bending too much and carrying things around. The biggest perk is I have been advised to give up doing strenuous housework. Dr. Chen specifically asked Jojo to pick up the load (not that he hasn’t been doing that already – cause my husband’s been just awesome in taking up more than his fair share – but now we have strict doctor’s orders so I can seriously milk the situation!). Hahaha.

Jojo and I begin our baby classes this week too. We have 3 sessions of Childbirth classes (3 hours for the next 3 Tuesdays), 3 sessions of Breastfeeding classes (on Wednesdays) and 3 sessions of Infant CPR classes (on Thursdays). We also have a full day Saturday class for first time parents. Whew! I’ve also enrolled in “Mommy and Me” classes after I deliver so I can meet with a support group of trained nurses and other moms. Next week we are also starting to interview for our baby’s pediatrician. I have three appointments to meet with prospective doctors located around Torrance. These are all pediatricians that Dr. Chen recommended. I want to interview each one to make sure we find Beanie the perfect doctor to take care of her as she’s growing up.

I’ve put away Jamie’s baby shower presents. While she got a lot of great stuff, there’s still a few more things she needs. I marvel at how much stuff such a small person needs. So this weekend, Jojo and I are heading over to the Baby Depot for last minute stuff. I figured we need to get them now before I become too huge to waddle down store aisles.

So, that’s basically that for now.
