35 weeks today

I had another Dr's appointment today and I fully expected them to tell me that I was dilated to at least a 5 and to admit me to Labor and Delivery. But I'm still at 3 and still waiting. It's a good thing - but I feel so anxious! The NP told me to stay in bed and eat, eat, eat. (I lost two pounds this week...weird because I feel like all I've done since I've been on bedrest is eat, sleep, and play Sudoku). I've got another appointment on Thursday so we'll see what happens then.

Here's a picture of Julius and I that Tony took on Sunday...

This evening I ran the kids through the McDonald's drive through for "half-price Happy Meals". When we got home Bronwyn discoved that they did not include a toy in her meal. She was bitterly disappointed and crying her eyes out. After a few minutes Julius looked at her and decided that she could have his toy. I was shocked... I had not prompted him at all. I almost cried because I was so proud of him.
Happy meal toys are like gold around here and he's been talking about getting his Kung Fu Panda happy meal toy for two weeks...It was a really big deal. I am so happy that he's growing up and that he was so kind to his little sister. It was a very happy mommy moment. I love you Julius!
Here is a picture of Julius and Bronwyn enjoying BEDREST with me...
