The Best Feeling in the World

Being a Mommy! It's seriously the coolest, most amazing thing that I have ever experienced in my life. You could never imagine how much you could love another human being until you become a mommy. Reamer V is so perfect. We are so in love with our little guy. We just sit and stare at him in amazement and awe that we could make something so perfect! We all are doing great and enjoying spending time together. I am going to start posting video's and pictures on "photobucket" so that I don't bambard facebook with my thousands of phots and videos. If you want to keep up with us via pictures and videos, just check our page on photobucket.
Here is a link to our first photo/video album.

Ok, so I have issues. As you all know we are just on standby for the arrival of our little man. I am feeling pretty good (not tired or too uncomfortable etc...) So that means that most of my day consists of getting ready for the baby. Cleaning, buying stuff, running weird last minute errands (dry cleaning the comfortor etc...). But one thing that is detrimental is my need to look in my hospital bag and make sure I have everything I might need. I keep putting things in and taking things out. I am bringing several outfits for baby Reamer just in case he might need different sized things. I have bought extra shampoo, conditoner, toothpaste, toothbrush, makeup, contact case, etc...... strictly for my hospital bag. That way I don't have to do last minute packing. I keep looking online at different "what to bring to the hospital when giving birth" lists. And this will spark the idea for something new that we might need. Even though I know that I will not even touch half of it, it is giving me something to do. I just feel like I am getting things accomplished by doing all of this weird stuff. If I keep packing at this rate my husband is going to need a forklift to get my hospital bag in the car!!! (he might need a forklift for me too if I keep growing....)

Come to think of it, maybe I will have a forklift on standby for D-day!!! hahahaha! Just kidding!

Inducing Labor with WivesTales..........

I'm almost at Reamer's due date! I just can't wait to see him and hold him! I'm not uncomfortable or in pain or anything, but I really do want him to go ahead and come! I feel like a little kid just waiting for Christmas. So I have been trying some wivestales about how to induce the labor process!!!

The Italians have told me that by walking the big hill (Mt. Berico) in our town that it will get things going, so I keep trying it. I will be going again today so maybe this one will work.

I have eaten an entire pineapple and had some spicy Mexican food. I have been on tons of walks. I've even riden our elevator up and down 3 times and done 50 jumping jacks.

This weekend I'm going to make Eggplant Parmesan and I'm going to get Reamer to give me a foot massage. So if anyone has any other safe suggestions I'd be happy to give them a try. (I'm not going to try anything dangerous like castor oil, or any herbal rememdies etc...)

Hopefully one of these will eventually work! Let me know if any of these or any others have worked for you! Thanks for your suggestions!
