Considering I did nothing all day, it was a somewhat eventful day. A package came from my online Twin Christie today for Lyric. It was full of awesomeness — handknit goodies, baby books, a Dr Seuss onesie, a dragon stuffie, and best of all — ITTY BITTY RUBY RED SLIPPERS! They are so absolutely perfect and match mine wonderfully. I think perhaps Lyric and I will have to get Daddy to take us out for a fancy dinner sometime so we can wear our matching shoes. And since everything is better with pictures, here you go:
Ruby Red Slippers to match Mama’s:
Pixie Hat & Booties and Celtic Cable Baby Cocoon:
A fabulous collection of books (the Wookie one is from Christie’s husband):
Dragon Stuffie modeling the Pixie Hat:
In some other exciting news, the contractions have started. They’re somewhere in between Braxton-Hicks and actual labour contractions so I suppose they would be considered “pre-labour” contractions. The lame thing is that they only last 5-15 seconds and they come every 10 minutes-2 hours so I still have quite a ways to go. Regardless though, my body and my baby are definitely making progress and every pain brings me a little bit closer to her.
I’ll leave you all now with what the O’Callaghans do best — dressing Spike up in Lyric’s clothes.
