Into the home stretch!

We're officially at 35 weeks and 1 day into this pregnancy. Ang looks like she's ready to burst. And honestly last night it appeared as if the baby is starting to drop. Like I said in previous posts, Malaia was born at 36 1/2 weeks so it really could be anytime now.

Ang's sister was at our house on Sunday and had her 4 month old baby with her. Up until now Malaia has been somewhat jealous if she saw Ang holding the baby. But this time around she did nothing but give the baby kisses and small hugs. Which really is a huge step in the right direction of us feeling more comfortable about bringing the baby home.

We've also had to introduce "timeouts" to Malaia in the past week. She appears to have understood what it meant almost immediately. Much to the relief of our one cat Pedro who is relieved to not have his hair ripped out on a daily basis. We're hoping that it will be a tool in our arsenal if she becomes a little too aggressive towards the new baby.

We have everything in place now for the baby too. Everything is washed up and awaiting their arrival. The baby room is back to the way it was when Malaia was born and the we have everything prepared right down to the diaper bag for the new baby is all packed up and ready for the hospital. I will keep updating my blog should anything happen earlier than expected..


  1. For your wife's sake I hope it is sooner than later. Her being uncomfortable and getting bigger puts a strain on the whole family.

  2. Sounds like the only thing missing is the baby! Can't wait!! Tell Ang to hang in there and we are thinking of you guys.
