Contractions & Prezzies

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.
