Alan update Jul 11

Alan's heart rate is 152bpm and weighs about 4.3lbs (give or take .77 lb).   His/her head measurements continue to stay on track for..how do I put this lightly - to not have the largish Eastern European head (Mark may kill me, so if you do not hear from me again, you will know why :))
We got a decent 3D shot where baby Alan looks a tad grumpy, or maybe sleepy...


All is going well so we cannot complain!  People say Alan looks like a boy, but we will truly not know until birth.
We started packing on the weekend, and putting all these tiny clothes, bottle, bibs and blankets into a suitcase became somewhat overwhelming, in a good way.  Finally, we are so so close!!!  We are officially in the 50's , translated into week 33!  wild!

On the weekend we went to the water front and enjoyed a family of Canada geese.  The babies were busy busy eating grass as mom and dad stood close by on guard .

And last but not least, my Big Fat European Shower is on the weekend.  We have a great hot meal being served, wine, a special cake, a Mendi artist and a pretty cool shower favour.  Will definitely post pics afterwards!

  12. If Alan is indeed an Alan, are you going to have a tough time giving him any name but Alan? :)
