Quick Takes 9/2!


I am really doing my best to not be dead. I promise!


I am absolutely in love with the clearance section at Japanese Weekend for maternity clothes. Seriously. They are awesome and the clearance and sale prices aren't awful.


I am also in love with the Old Navy maternity long skirts. The weight is nice, the length is nice, and it's really comfortable. Not to bring up the skirts vs pants debate, but these skirts are comfortable enough that I actually COULD wear them all day.


Glow-worm (6.0) is now just about entering 2nd trimester! I looked at the calendar and realized that my "big" ultrasound is about 6 weeks away, and I'm about 6 months away from my "victory over due date" day, and uh... eek. Especially since I tend to go over a bit, which puts me in excellent position to have an Ides of March baby.


This does mean that I am getting pretty close to being able to find out whether Glow-Worm is Pink or Blue! Most of the house wants a girl, because "Thumbelina is SOOO cute!" but Yogi wants a boy because "we NEVER get baby boys..."


I am absolutely dorking out reading through the really solid report from the IOM (Institute of Medicine) report on vaccine safety. The report was commissioned to be able to streamline claims for people who have suffered vaccine related adverse events, but to streamline they needed to be able to determine which events were truly vaccine related and which weren't. Wonderful 600+ page long report.


3 year old check up for Baby Bear and 15 month for Thumbelina, and I think we should be able to get our flu shots too.
