5 days & Counting!

It has been so nice having my mom aka "Dede" with us over the past few days - she is going to have me & Son totally spoiled by the time she leaves!

We call her Dede (pronounced more like Dee-Dee) because that is going to be her grandmother name - her real name is Debbie, and so she came up with "Dede" for herself & "Jimbo" for my dad (his name is Jim). I think those are about the cutest grandparent names out there - and Son & I have adopted them too. It was a running joke with Son & I before Dede arrived that anytime we would talk about who was going to get up when the baby cried in the middle of the night we would end up with the same response - "Dede"!

**Before you start to think that we are taking advantage of my sweet mother - we don't actually expect her to do this, but if you know my mom then you know how much she loves to help & take care of us. I can just see myself having to race with her at 2am to see who can get to the baby first!

Even in just the 1 full day she has been here, she has already done so much for us. Yesterday when Son got home from work he opened the pantry and said "I don't think we've ever had this much food in our house"! She tidied up the house while I was at work, went to the grocery store, and cooked us a wonderful dinner last night.

I have a doctor's appointment late this afternoon, and then we will find out if they are going to schedule me to be induced next week or what the plan is. After that Dede and I are going to get our nails done. It will be nice to be able to reach my own toes again in a few days or so!
