Mission: Accomplished

As I pointed out yesterday there were a few things that I wanted to be sure were out of the way before I went into labor. I am pleased to report that I have now crossed a few more items off my list.

  • LP's birthday party (May 24)
  • LP's birthday (May 28)
  • Last day of work (May 29th)
  • The season finale of Lost (May 29).
  • LP's 2-year check up (May 30)
  • My grandparents' return from a month-long transatlantic cruise (May 30)
My brother-in-law and his family are taking a vacation next weekend and they are really hoping that I hold out until Tuesday (June 3) to have the baby so they don't have to cut their vacation short in the event we have a boy and will have a bris, but I can't make any promises there. I will do my best!

I will not make any other "wishes" about the birth of this baby since I have been so lucky so far. Let's just say that I hope all goes swimmingly and the result is a very happy healthy baby.

Speaking of healthy babies, LP's doctor visit went very well (aside from the fact that she has a mild case of coxsackie). She has gained 4 pounds since her 18-month well visit and grown an inch and a half. I was worried on the height end because she hadn't grown much in a while, but this is great. The doctor said that if she maintains growing in the 25th percentile she should be around 5'4", although there are no guarantees. Hell, I'd settle for her being 5'2"!

Anyway, everyone continues to do well and eagerly await Bun's arrival. Today LP told her doctor that the baby was a girl and her name was going to be "Baby Cup". It wasn't on the list, but maybe we should reconsider...

Maybe this gives you the nickname? BC? Cuppy? Cupcake?
