were at the end of the boys two week school holiday, their last break before summer. i expect this next term to cruz by since we have michael's parents coming in from alaska. did you know michael grow up in alaska? it's been a little over three years since his parents have seen the boys.
that visit will quickly be followed by halloween, our street was streaming with kids last year. i expect the same this year as i've already heard the discussions of "who their going be" floating around the hood.
come november a sweet fifth birthday for my tate. sometimes i secretly hope we have a girl so tate will remain the baby boy. i still call him "baby" and the thoughts of him not being the baby are making me a little nervous. he's so the baby of our home and the entire neighborhood.
my mom will then join us at the beginning of december, i wasn't sure if that was going to happen, but tickets have been purchased and it's happening. for those of you who were curious about our decision to have the boys with us at the birth, they will be home with my mom and possibly join us sometime right before the baby enters the world. maybe? logistics? i am not so worried about those details anymore.
soon after a christmas tree and ribbons of red will appear, and fingers crossed our baby arrives a week or two before school is out.
our due date is sort of fun, 12-12-12. i actually really like that it is written the same in both countries, but i have yet to actually make it to any of my due dates. if by chance the baby does go beyond that date there will be no interference until i am officially two weeks over, which brings us right to christmas eve. my midwife is quite fond of my due date though. she has said if the baby hasn't come before it she will use all her tricks to get that baby born on the twelfth, but trust me once i am 37 weeks i am sure i will be trying every natural remedy to get this baby out.
