23 weeks, 3 days

Well, well, well. My contractions started back up late last night and into today. Nothing alarming, but I'm getting a few more of them than I was at this time last week. My best guess about the break from contractions I had over the weekend is that Friday's progesterone shot helped them to hold off for a few days. Hopefully that continues to happen every week, and hopefully the reprieve time gets longer and longer. Who knows!? So today I'm back to being the couch's best friend.

My boys were so good to me yesterday! They made me feel like a pretty special mama on Valentine's Day. I got a bunch of new comfy clothes, which is the absolute perfect gift for me right now. Elijah even insisted on trying on some of my new socks. :)

Dan made a DELICIOUS meal last night after Elijah was in bed. It was one of the tastiest meals I have had in a long long time.

Crab legs, filet mignon, creamy potatoes and salad with sparkling pomegranate juice. All followed by ice cream, of course.

Elijah woke up at 4:37 this morning. I'm not sure we will ever get to a place where he sleeps in late ("late" = past 6:00). Maybe he is doing us a favor and preparing us for the new baby? By the way, he is STILL saying he wants to name the baby Zooter. He has been extremely consistent with this answer, which is pretty funny.

The couch is getting jealous, so I better sign off now. Thanks for checking in!

I was so seriously hoping that you could stay OFF of the couch. :(
So glad we realize this is only for a short season...and to grow an amazing little life! :)

I skipped breakfast this morning and the picture of your Vday dinner is making my mouth water!
I agree with Kathy... it may not be the baby's real name but, he'll be Zooter to me. It's just so cute.
Hope you have a good day in your new comfy clothes and cute socks. I LOVE cute socks.
