Nanny and papa

This past weekend, mom still didn’t get any time to rest, since we had some visitors–people that mom called my nanny and papa. I think that these people are actually mom’s mom and dad. I’m not sure how that works, it seems pretty strange to me that my mom has a mom. Does that mean that at one time my mom was inside of her mom? And that after she came out, she was able to have me inside her? How long has she been out? And when I’m out that long, does that mean that I will have a baby growing inside me, too? I have so much to learn!

When nanny and papa were here, the first thing they did was take mom to another Blue Jays game. Dad didn’t go with them, since he had “better things to do,” and mom said that the game was a belated Father’s Day gift to papa. I can’t believe that there is a day dedicated just to dads…I’ll have to find out when that is, so I can take my dad to a Blue Jays’ game, too!

Mom seems to be having a lot of fun lately, with all these games and visitors. Dad says that she better enjoy it while she can, since my arrival will change everything. But, I really can’t see how my arrival will change everything, since mom already carries me around everywhere she goes. Maybe dad means that things will change for me?

After the game, mom, nanny and papa came home and started getting our house and my room in order for my arrival. Together with dad, the four of them started by putting some stickers up on my wall. It seemed to take quite a long time, and mom says that I better enjoy it. But, in the end, I think that they were all happy with it. When I hear things like this going on, it makes me excited to come out and meet everyone and see everything!

I’m exhausted from such a busy week!

This last week has been an exhausting one. I’m tired just thinking about it, so I’m not sure how mom is handling it!

First of all, mom and dad told me that this was a special week, because it was Canada Day. Mom says that this is a day to celebrate Canada as a country, but that a lot of people just use it as an extra day off work. I’m not sure about that, but I do know that mom and dad used their day off to it’s fullest. After taking the opportunity to sleep in–which mom doesn’t get a chance to do much anymore–they went to a Blue Jays game. I have a feeling that it’s kind of like a TFC game, but a little less rowdy. There was a lot of clapping and woohooing happening, but not nearly as much chanting and cheering. I think that both the Blue Jays and TFC games seem like a lot of fun, so I hope that I’ll get to go to some when I come out!

After the game, mom and dad went out to watch some World Cup footy. If I thought that I would be able to get some peace and quiet during this game, boy was I wrong! It seems that the whole place was yelling and cheering–almost as loud as at the Blue Jays game! Luckily, that game didn’t last as long as the Blue Jays game. And even luckier, after the game, mom and dad came home for a little bit to rest.

I know that mom used this time to sit back with her feet up, and since I had been awake all day because of the noise I enjoyed the rest time, too. I even got a bit of a nap in! But, it didn’t last long, because mom and dad went out to see what the call fireworks. I’m not sure what they look like, but they sure are loud. All could hear was “pop, pop, pop” over and over again. The first one startled me and I kicked hard, but when mom put her hand over my kick, it made me feel safe. As I continued to listen to the fireworks, the less they scared me, and the noise almost became soothing–not enough to make me go back to sleep, but enough to keep me still for a while.

Believe it or not, that was only one day of the week! Now, you can see why I’m so tired. I haven’t even talked about the other Blue Jays game or the visit from Nany and Papa…I guess you’ll just have to wait until next time!

Maxin’ and relaxin’

Today mom went for a massage and now she says that she feels like a million bucks. That seems like a weird thing to feel like to me…how can a person feel like money? Just another thing I hope to learn about on the outside!bowlingball_clip_art_15758

Because I’ve been growing so much lately, mom says that her growing belly has been putting a lot of stress on her back. In fact, she says it’s a lot like carrying a bowling ball on her belly. I’m not sure, but I don’t think that bowling balls and babies look the same. I’m pretty sure my mom is a smart lady, but sometimes I think that maybe she really doesn’t really know what she’s talking about!

During mom’s massage, I could tell that she was getting nice and relaxed. Although I like to move and kick when she’s being still–as a reminder that I’m still here–I stayed as quiet and calm as I could. I figure that this was the least I could do, since mom is taking such good care of me in here! And, also between the calming music and the gentle rocking back and forth, I think that I may have fallen asleep. I think that maybe mom did too, since I think I could hear her snoring!

After the massage, mom asked the masseuse to show her some things that dad can do at home to help with her back pain. I hope that dad can help mom out and do just as good of a job! Not only do I think that mom deserves it, but I like the way it feels too.
