One Month Left

Originally uploaded by telfandrea.

This is my favorite picture of Cate and Telfer right now. We went to the Central Park Zoo with Eleanor, Grammy and Gramps and Cate, as you can see, is a fan of the zoo. She loved feeding the animals in the petting zoo and watching the penguins swim. Perfect little zoo for small children. I will take her one more time before we leave.

So, two pieces of fabulous news.
1. We are having another GIRL. Aren't you surprised?! I KNEW it was a girl…and that's what we both were secretly hoping for. Also, the ultrasound indicates that I am around six days ahead of what they originally thought which makes my due date October 2. That's good news to a pregnant woman!
2. Telfer passed his oral boards and is now a board-certified anesthesiologist. Nine years of marriage, nine years of training. All good years. We are thankful he's [almost] done though!

We had a wonderful time with grandparents in New York. Mendy and Eleanor babysat one day while I headed to Ellis Island. Lovely, lovely day. Cate loves her aunt and grammy.

I finished a lot of moving and house and insurance details last week. Choosing movers is a time-consuming process. My favorite moment: telling an unnamed moving company my email address (includes my first name and then librarian) so he could send me a quote and getting the response: "are you a stripper?" Um, no. We went with another company.

Telfer worked yesterday and all through the night so he's home taking a nap (so is Cate). Later today I am headed out by myself for a bit. Trying to decide: go to MOMA or get errands done that I can't usually do with Cate. Fun errands though (fabric store, bed, bath & beyond, a furniture store in a dance studio in mid-town). Decisions, decisions.
