Jack now likes to say to my belly "Baby Brother, come out and play." I'm trying desperately to get this on video. Hopefully, I will succeed before there is no one in my belly to talk to.

What are your favorite Easter type treats? Also, do you have a jelly bean preference?
Personally, I prefer the Cadbury Creme Egg, and Starburst or Jelly Belly Jelly Beans.... I don't care for the Brachs (which are the traditional Easter jelly bean in my opinion.)
Do you have any special Easter/Passover treats that you make? (I saw a Rice Krispy shaped like an egg and half dipped in chocolate & sprinkles and thought to myself Now that's an idea!)

Things that make people cool:
- New, clean, unwrinkled, matching clothes.
- A cool car, not new or fancy necessarily, but a cool one none-the-less.
- Done hair, makeup, deodorant (little things like that).
- A clean house, not covered in baby/toddler accoutrements.
- The ability to have an entire conversation without being interrupted by a toddler, or without needing to discuss said toddler.
But I'm still crafty.

I started a TV series on DVD... will I get to finish it?
I started a book, what about that?
When's the next big rain storm... low pressure... you know.
Have you heard the one about eggplant parm? I mean it's yummy, but people swear it brings on labor... what's that about?
Spicy food? I have a coupon to Bombay Peacock... who wants to go out with me (seriously) Indian food = GOOD!
Matt claims there is something to Oregano... seriously?!?!
So here are the husband-photos... I will attempt to channel my husband when writing the captions: Retirement Plan.

Here's me at exactly 37 weeks with Jack... oddly, the 38-ish lb weight difference is not so obvious on camera. And there is Emily L. Isn't she obnoxiously tiny?!?!

I love me a good "cold dessert". Ice cream, gelato, italian ice, fresh fruit salad... drool....
So, please tell me about your all-time favorite cold dessert. Anything, no matter how crazy.
Jack is also ready for spring. He has started insisting on spending his mornings at home shirtless. While I fully support his right to partial nudity, it seems a little cold to wander around without an article of clothing- but he doesn't mind. Watch out ladies!
(This photo was taken about an hour before the cashew incident. Where in he put it in his nose during lunch; we didn't know what all the pointing and saying "in there" was about. He coughed during dinner and out came a cashew which, in hindsight, we realized why there was all the 'nose talk' during lunch. Kids.)

Why are they evil:
- They are more intense that a Braxton Hicks.
- They can be 5 min apart lasting for 30/45 seconds.
- Changing position, taking a shower, drinking water, etc can have no effect on them.
- They do cause cervical change (up to the first 4cm) and they cause effacement.
- They are discouraging, because "This is it!" can happen MULTIPLE times.
- They can tire you out. (Duh!)
So when I say I've been in labor for about a week now, I'm actually not kidding. It's just not the "grab the hospital bag, call everyone we know, push the baby out kind." Fun.
Does it happen every day? No. But I'd guess it's about 3x a week. SO annoying!
But since we are getting close-ish: please place your bets for birthdate and baby size here. For those that need a reminder the c/s is scheduled for April 19th. So that's the LAST possible day to guess...
