Although my little man has gained 2 pounds, none of it has gone to his legs, which goes to show he's got some Mcfall blood flowing in there. Who knew my baby would be Scotch?

okay, all this to say, we are trying to decide on something special to do this weekend! because it will be our last weekend together with just the two of us! (most likely!) we might:
*go to devil's lake and have a picnic (never been there!) (and you can go and not really hike right? right?)
*go to a haunted house! spoooooooooooky! i said to matt, what if i get scared and i go into labor? and he said "that'd be awesome!" (he is antsy for the little guy to arrive -- we ate very spicy food last night and he didn't even want me to drink milk, for fear that ... oh, i don't know, something about capseasin (sp?) counterreacting something, rendering the plan inutil?)
*go to an apple orchard and maybe ride a hayride and maybe go in a corn maze and maybe have cider?
*go to that cave where you get to paddle around in a canoe and duck under the stalagmites. (or is it the stalagtites?) okay we probably won't do that because i don't know where it is and i probably shouldn't be climbing down into a cave. i know, i know...
i think that's it. what do you think we should do? or do you have some other suggestion? do tell!

he will arrive?
(the doctor said he could be born at any moment! or he could wait for two weeks! (nooooooo!) we are very ready to meet him!)
and who do you think he will look like?
(i think he will have matt's eyes and we can only hope he will have matt's sideburns.) ;-)
and what do you think his middle name should be?
(can you believe we still don't have that figured out??!)

fy is terribly, terribly interested in the fish. he sits at the bottom of the shelf staring and staring. i think sometimes he forgets what he was staring at, and we find him with his gaze fixed to the clock or perhaps an empty bottle of Leninade.
anyway. so. that is that. we have lovely fish. :-)

we gave fy a haircut (very short!) he is left with only ear fluffs and a rooster tail. as a result he gets very cold and tremulous at night, so matt sometimes bundles him into his tee-shirt. clearly he is a natural when it comes to fatherhood. :-)

on saturday, my parents and the goodmans surprised us with the most wonderful gift! a beautiful crib for our little guy! they even set it up for us!
this is getting so so so so so so so exciting! i am very pleased too, because my little son is very strong, and has taken to playing my ribs as though they were a xylophone. a little painful, but i am so proud. :-)
and by the way, my sweet mamita took me to get a haircut! the plume has been cut off! cast to the winds! what a weekend. :-)

i just had no idea he was incarcerated in the US all this time (i honestly didn't even know that could happen). i wonder: did he have a cellmate? (probably not if somehow even paris hilton got out of having one right?) did he carry a shank in his sock? did he make a tiny chessboard? did people know who he was? did he lift weights out on the yard? did he feel bad for what he had done or was he planning his next revolution these past 18 years? did he write a manifesto? did he get to watch tv while locked up and if so did he watch sabado gigante? (and did he see the mother's day episode that i was in the audience of? and did he have a different favorite in the hot mamacita contest? because i kind of think the wrong lady won.) does he admire chavez and will they meet? was he a fan of prison break? are they even allowed to watch that in prison? does he feel as though he has been cryogenically frozen all this time and is suddenly stepping out to a whole new world or is it all the same old same old to him? and if he had been incarcerated in the phillippines would he have participated in the dancing of "thriller"? there is just so much i would like to know.

it's early july, and i think we've been to five weddings so far this summer. and what i love is that each wedding has its moment, the part that you won't forget. i think at kelli's it was when they said their vows, so very choked up, and seeing kelli's face when they were pronounced husband and wife (she just lit up!) and then at the reception of course it would have to be watching her dance to n'sync. :-) (okay and i will always think of cake when i think of kelli's wedding, since it was just to die for and through some finnagling i got to try five different flavors. one of the definite perks of having a nice round little pregnant belly - no one wants to deny you food.) :-)
so anyway, i am curious: what was your favorite part of your wedding? and your reception?

I was telling my mom the basic plot over breakfast and in the car, and by the time we were headed home we were both crying... And not only is it a beautiful story, it is set against the most amazing backdrop of the past 30-some years in Afghanistan and is worth a read if only just for that. (Should I tell you what happens in it? Should I?) This is from Wikepedia:
The Kite Runner tells the story of Amir, a well-to-do Pashtun boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, who is haunted by the guilt of betraying his childhood friend Hassan, the son of his father's Hazara servant. The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of the monarchy in Afghanistan through the Soviet invasion, the mass exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the Taliban regime.
Sounds so intriguing, right?
Okay. So: Have you read anything good lately?
