7 Quick Takes

We made it to 33 weeks today.  If this baby has the same schedule as its older sisters, we have a little under 5 weeks left!  I have not reached the uncomfortable stage yet and am keeping busy around the house.  I think this baby is going to be small based on my weight gain and measurements at the doctor's office.  (Watch...this baby will be the 9-pounder!)
I managed to order Meghan's medication in under 15 minutes today, which is about 1/3 the usual amount of time.  Success!
Meghan saw her endocrinologist yesterday.  Since November she has grown 1.5 inches and gained 1.5 pounds.  Her height actually almost reaches the first percentile on the growth chart now!  She still needs to make some progress in the weight area, but I have started giving her a milk shake for a snack every day made with full-fat ice cream, whole milk, and Carnation instant breakfast.  This extra treat seems to be helping.
I am almost done with my "little" project for Camille's preschool:  25 community helper vests.  This sewing project has helped me pass the time this winter, and I think I am becoming better-skilled with my sewing machine.
We had some plumbing problems in our basement bathroom and laundry room, so we have had numerous contractors and plumbers coming over in the evenings to give us estimates on the repairs.  We were not planning to remodel the basement for 5-10 years, but I guess we will have a new bathroom and laundry room (with two washing machine hook-ups!!!!) by summer.
Camille is a budding artist and has drawn on pretty much every piece of paper in our house.  Her grandparents joke about her "traveling art exhibit" because when she goes to Fargo, she replaces her old drawing with new ones and then takes the old ones home for someone else's fridge.  Camille's drawings have gotten quite elaborate, but we cannot figure out what to do with all of them!
Meghan and I have been stuck in the house for a week and a half with a terrible cold.  I would love to go to the gym and stretch my muscles a bit, but I have this thing about children with green snotty noses being dropped off in the daycare...  Hopefully a good rest this weekend will make us better.
