This week we wrapped up quite a few loose ends and prepared for essentially being shut-ins for the next couple of months - cleaning, finishing some books and other research, yet more laundering of baby things, gardening, eating at some favorite restaurants, etc. We also met with a couple of day care providers, liked one of them and really, really liked the other, so we should have that all set next week once we call the second one and work out the contract and deposit. I also got everything transitioned and wrapped up at work as much as possible - my replacement and I spent yesterday preparing as if it were my last day and then we'll just consider any time I'm able to go in next week as bonus, but I'm about ready to be done at work now. I'll keep working next week if I haven't had the baby yet, since I'd prefer to be at work rather than sitting at home analyzing every ache or twinge, but it's also a little nerve-wracking to just have to hope that my water doesn't break at work!

Ryan also took a video of the baby moving, and has peer pressured me into posting it here. So here you go:
