Well, things are just calming down... Matt has just finished his proposals that are due on Wednesday (money for research in Italy next year). The in-laws moved in on Monday, so the house is a bit fuller feeling and an impressive array of boxes. Dominic has been loving this opportunity to color on wardrobe boxes, crawl through tunnels, and get into things that are normally out of his reach. He has also fallen in love with the piano and plays it surprisingly gently and nicely. Maybe our little energizer will turn his energies to the fine arts? :) I'm sure that things will be even calmer once his new baby sister arrives. Lately he has been giving her kisses in my belly from both his precious Doggy and Elmo. Quite cute. We think he'll make a good brother once he gets over the initial shock.
We're anxiously awaiting the arrival of Baby Girl Gaetano. Thus far she has been a very good girl, waiting until Matt was home and moving day was over. Now she can come. I'm tired of being a whale. We had an ultrasound last week that showed her to be very healthy and quite active. In fact, they had some trouble getting her measurements because she didn't want to stop moving. Uh-oh! I had another ob. appointment today and things look like they might get going in the next couple of days. We'll keep you posted, probably by g-mail status and lengthier updates on this blog.
To pass the time, we're watching the election coverage. Things don't look too good for McCain or a Republican Senate. We'll just continue to pray that whatever happens, people may come to respect the sanctity of life from conception to natural death. What a miracle this whole pregnancy and birth thing is!
