Last month!

Hello, bonjour!

Comment ca va? How are you?

J'arrive bientot! 3-4 semaines max!!!!

Ca fait longtemps! Ma promesse d'ecrire une fois par semaine n'a pas tenu longtemps! Ma maman m'a dit de vous dire que c'est de sa faute! Mauvaise connexion! Elle etait plutot fatiguee ces deux dernieres semaines. Il etait occupee. Mais ca y est, maintenant, elle peut mieux se reposer. D'ailleurs le docteur lui a dit la semaine derniere. Elle est allee passer une autre echographie juste pour verifier encore ma croissance. Tout va bien. Je suis toujours petit(e) mais ca c'est pas nouveau. Le niveau de liquide amniotique etait un petit peu bas mais bon, rien d'alarmant. Le docteur lui a dit qu'elle devait se reposer et boire plus. Ce qu'elle fait. Moi je bouge encore pas mal la-dedans. C'est pas toujours facile mais j'y arrive. Je pousse une ou deux cotes par-ci, par-la, donne un ou deux coups dans la vessie. Maman est plutot patiente!
Papa a finalement pu voir les bosses que je cree. maman etait plutot contente parce qu'a chaque fois qu'elle lui disait de regarder la bosse que je faisais, c'etait trop tard. J'etais plutot fiere de moi. C'etait un gros coup!

Ah oui j'ai eu ma "baby shower". J'ai eu des trucs trop cool. Des couvertures faites main, des bonnets, des trucs pour me porter, des vetements, des jouets, des livres, de la biere et du chocolat (bon ces deux dernieres trucs c'est pour papa et maman)! Pleins pleins de trucs. Les amis de papa et maman ont hate de me voir arriver et sont trop gentils. J'ai de la chance que mes parents aient des amis aussi cools!

Samedi dernier, on a celebre l'anniversaire de papa. Il a pris 30 ans! Maman avait reserve la piece du bas dans un magasin de vin d'amis a eux. Et elle avait invite pleins de gens sans que papa ne sache vraiment ce qu'il se passait. C'etait super. Bon maman n'a bu que de l'eau. Elle a juste eu une petite, tout petite gorgee de vin, mais moins que d'habitude parce que elle se sentait fatiguee et voulait etre sure que nous nous sentions bien tous les deux. Papa a bu pour trois a la place.

Quoi d'autre? Ah, ca y est, ils ont termine les classes de preparation a l'accouchement. Ils se sentent prets a m'accueillir dans le monde, enfin aussi pret qu'ils puissent etre.... ahahahah! Ca me fait bien rigoler moi! N'empeche, moi aussi je dois me preparer. Bon j'ai deja la tete en bas et maintenant je dois prendre des forces. J'ai pas vu les videos qu'ils ont vu mais dit, ca va etre du boulot! pour maman et pour moi, il faut que je l'aide.

Je vous ecrirai avant Thanksgiving je pense mais sinon, je dois vous dire: je vais rencontrer les parents de ma maman, mes grand-parents francais. C'est cool. J'ai deja rencontre les parents de Papa. Maintenant, j'ai hate de connaitre mes autres origines...



Hello, bonjour!

Comment ca va? How are you?

I am almost there! 3 - 4 weeks maximum!

It's been a while! My promise to write once a week is already out of the window! Sorry.
Well, my maman told me to tell you that she is to blame. Bad connection! She was pretty tired those past two weeks. She was busy. But that's it, now, she can rest. Besides the doctor told her to. She went to have another sonogram to check on my development. Everything is fine, I am still smaller than average but this is no surprise! The amount of amniotic fluid was a little bit low but nothing alarming. The doctor just told her to rest and to drink plenty of water. And she does. And me? I am moving around. Well, you know as much as I can. It's getting pretty tight in there. It's not always easy but with one or two kicks in the ribs and in the bladder, I create myself some space! My maman is rather patient!
Mon papa has finally witnessed the bumps that I create when moving around. Maman was happy because everytime she was telling him, look the bump, it was too late! I was pretty proud of myself! That was a big one I did.

Oh and I have had my "baby shower". I received a bunch of stuffs! A lot of homemade blankets, hats, clothes, toys, books, beer and chocolate (well, those last two things are not really for me)... My parents' friends are looking forward my arrival and I feel lucky that they have such great friends!

And last Saturday, we celebrated mon papa's birthday. He is 30! maman had reserved a space at the wine shop of some friends and had people coming without him knowing too much what was going on. That was fun. Well, mom, drank water while everybody had wine. I think she had a sip of wine only. Even less than she has had sometimes. She was tired so she wanted to make sure we were both ok. Daddy drank for three instead!

What else? Ah yes, they are done with the childbirth preparation classes. They feel ready to welcome me in the world... well as much ready as they can be.... ahahahah! It makes me laugh! Well, actually, I should get ready too. I already have my head down but I still need to get some strength. I have not seen the videos like them but according to what I have heard, it's going to be laborious for maman et moi! I'm gonna have to help her.

Well, I will probably write before Thanksgiving but I have to tell you. Next week, I meet my maman's parents, my French grand-parents. That's exciting. I met my papa's parents already. I can't wait to know my other "origins"

Bonjour Baby Crevette,

I am very excited to meet you. You know we have already hung out together, but my mama didn't even know I was there. You will be born several months before I will, so you will have to teach me the things older babies know, and also help me with my French.

I like to kick my mama, too, but I haven't kicked her in the ribs yet. Sometimes she feels like I must have friends over because I kick her in three places all at once. I am just practicing for dancing!

Your parents will have to tell mine about this alternative registry because they already feel like they have enough clothes for me, and I haven't even had my baby shower yet. People get excited when we babies are on the way! I already have 12 outfits! I just like to hang around naked like you do right now, though.

Well, I hope that we will be able to meet each other soon. My mama hopes your mama got only good European chocolate at her baby shower instead of the yucky stuff, and my dad says he wishes he could drink a beer with your papa!

Love,

Baby Hislop
