So, I was thinking of posting but I'm not sure if anyone still checks this blog...especially now, due to the end of Kinja (that really stinks because I can't figure out how to use blog rovr). Anyway, just drop a quick comment if you do check it so I can decide to post or not. Thanks a great big bunch!

Oh, and btw, if anyone knows of something that works similar to Kinja PUHLEASE let me know!

Coca and Pixie's Costumes

Although I wasn't with Coca to dress her up yesterday, she still got to get dressed up! Thank you, Laura. :)

Extra Time on My Hands

Now that I have some extra time, I've been able to edit some videos that have just been sitting on the tapes waiting to die. Have no fear, videos. I'm coming for you!

Anyway, here is the video of Kent assembling Julianne's crib. I think I had a cold when I made the video so try to ignore the sniffling and Darth Vader breathing. Also, I had to save it as an MPEG because it was too big for You Tube, so please excuse the video quality.

Riding the Bus / Rail

While here in Boston we've been making use of the public transportation system. We're getting quite good at it, actually. One thing that is a little stressful is getting on a bus or train that is really crowded. I have to stand up and hold on to the pole for dear life because neither the bus nor the train provides a smooth ride! Its actually pretty scary. I saw a grown man almost fall on top of his baby in a stroller on the subway!

I've had to stand and ride several times already. So far, only one person has given up their seat for the 9 month pregnant woman. The one person was an Asian lady, probably in her 50's. Other than that, no one. I did have one man hold on to the pole a little lower because he said he "didn't want to offend anyone with his armpit hair." Nice...

Coca's Awaiting Her New Family Member

These are two of my favorite pictures. They are my favorites because 1.) I have on my favorite maternity outfit, which is a super cute leopard print dress (I forgot to take a picture in it before I left). and 2.) Coca looks like she really knows someone is in there and she's waiting for them. :)

I Really Miss Coca :(

Of course I miss Kent TONS, but I know he will be here in about a week and a half. That gives me something to look forward to and it helps me get my sadness under control.

Coca, on the other hand, I will not see until sometime in October, possibly later. I cried as I watched her tilt her little head from side to side as she heard my voice through the computer speakers last night. I got choked up as I looked at her picture today. I cried as I saw her on the web cam tonight. I got teary eyed just now when I told Kent I was posting about missing Coca. Some of you may think that sounds silly but I really love my little Poochie. I know I'll be busy when we get home, but I won't love Coca any less than I do now. I tried to explain that to her and prepare her before I left. I hope she knows that I didn't abandon her and I'll be back for her soon. :)

Still getting bigger...

Tomorrow marks 36 weeks for Julianne! I'm going to try to remember to take another picture for my "belly progress" chart tomorrow. Here is my most recent picture though. I think we took this one this past Saturday.
