May The Force Be With You

Costas chose his own costume again this year. Darth Vader was his choice, along with a lightsaber. Since we bought costume last week, Costas has worn it everyday. Mostly at home, but also to speech and on one of our walks. He likes to stand on the couch and jump off while swinging his lightsaber. He also will swordfight with anyone willing (not me).

Costas and I went to the zoo today. We have a membership and we were going quite often in the winter and spring, but we hadn't been there all summer. This is the last week of the stingray exhibit where we could touch the stingrays so I wanted to make sure that we went to that one again. But the favorite exhibit is always the reptile house to see the geckos. We usually end up going around the whole reptile house four times before Costas is ready to go. There are lots of animals there including elephants, tigers, and giraffes but the geckos continue to be the big hit.

In His Own Bed

Costas has been sleeping in his own bed for about 2 weeks now! He loves his Spider-Man sheets that he chose himself. His bed is next to ours, so he is able to get reassurance in middle of the night if he needs it, which he rarely does. For the first few days, he didn't even want me to read him a story because he was so excited to sleep in his bed. Now there is room in our bed for the baby.

Anxious baby?

I went for my doctor's visit yesterday and was informed that I was 1 cm dilated and partly effaced. I am just beginning my 35th week. The doctor said that the baby may come sooner than later. But, I've heard of women who were dilated the same amount for a long period of time. Time will tell. I really prefer an October birthday; not a big fan of September for some reason.

School is still fun!

Costas is having a great time at school. The kids paint everyday, which Costas loves. There is lots of outside playtime, which is also fun for him. Today he told me, "I like my school, all of the kids, and I like my teachers." I'm also getting time to get some errands done, but that won't last once the baby is here.
