How many weeks? 27wks, 2days
Boy or girl? boy
Names? Torsten Willem
New worries or problems? not new, but always worrying about getting pre-e again, or breech again, or any complication, worrying about being "medicalized" again, still wishing and dreaming of that "ideal" birth experience. Trying for a VBAC, but learning to relinquish myself to "whatever happens." Meanwhile DH mentions that if it were him, he'd just plan another section....
Favorite childrens book? Sleepy Bears by Mem Fox. Love the rhymes and illustrations, my son especially likes the bear brushing his teeth in bed.
New cravings? hmmm.... My son's new craving is to be carried everywhere, must be because I want to carry him less. Actually, maybe he has the right idea - I want to be carried everywhere, too! Food cravings? Probably ice cream, apple pie, anything sweet. Used to be Mexican....
If you could be anything you wanted to be..? The same as I am now (stay-at-home mom), only without having to work/teach four evenings a week, so I could have time for hobbies.
Funniest moment you've had with a child? Lately, Espen thinks I'm a juke box or something. When it's time to put him to bed or nap, he requests song after song after song. Tonight we both broke into giggles realizing what he's up to....

-Lori
