Queen of the Post-Its

My computer desk is blooming in pink and yellow. I've taken to writing down everything. EEEEEEEEverything. Because otherwise, things fall through the hole in my baby-brain. And, shockingly, I still have Stuff To Do. I can't just sit around on the couch all day and all night, throwing things at poor J. I still have to work, and stuff like that. Who knew?
Anyway. The anatomy scan.
All is well. Heart, brain, kidneys, all functioning normally (yay!). And *ahem* ... I was wrong. And my mother was right.
I thought the baby was a girl. But nope. It's a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I was a bit shocked to start with, but at the very top of my list, is the fact that he's healthy. Anything else? Don't care.
It has felt like go go go this week, and it seems like we've hardly been home. So we're not going anywhere today; apart from me to work, obviously.
My friend who is over from Aussie and I went up to Dunedin on Wednesday to catch up with another friend and we had fun, getting out and about on the road.
Did my usual pilgrimage to the University Bookshop, although we didnt' spend enough time there, as far as I was concerned. Then on to Baby City and Arbuckles, where I got some stuff for baby.

Back home, and we had to take Piper to the vet. She has a skin infection on her shoulder, which means antibiotics AND anti-inflammatories. So many kinds of yay, I can't describe them all.
Peace out.

YAY! So glad everything was well at your scan :o) I had the same reaction as you when I found out Riley was a boy as I really thought I was having a girl and so did everyone else in my family.

When do you finish work for your maternity leave and how long do you get? I'm about to go back just after the Christmas break. Not looking forward to that at all.

Oooh, sorry about that! I upgraded to Beta Blogger or whatever it's called. I won't be able to take as much time off as I'd like, because I'm the main earner and somehow our Govt thinks $300 a week for 16 weeks is enough paid leave.
So I'm looking at maybe 10 weeks.
And thanks!
