At 26 weeks, according to my research, the baby has a 80-90% chance of survival if he was born now (with extreme medical intervention and a possibility of other issues that fully cooked babies wouldn't likely face). I wouldn't want Teddy to be born now, but it's nice to know he's got a fighting chance!
This weekend Ed and I are going to Williamsburg, Virginia as a sort of "babymoon." The books and forums say to take this vacation or mini-break before the baby comes and who are we to argue? We'll visit Colonial Williamsburg and the Jamestown Settlement and we plan to look for a super old church to attend on Sunday then we'll head home on Monday. I'm pretty excited about this - I've been once when I was about eight and Ed's never been at all. I may as well have never been since all I remember about it are the glass blowers. Historical vacations are lost on anyone under 18 (maybe lost on some people altogether).
That's pretty much what's going on right now... I could tell you about the nine million baby outfits I got from the Pikes or the enormous amount of bird poop I sprayed off the bird cage this weekend, but do you guys really care? I didn't think so...

Our sweet Maddie cat was hit by a car a little over a week ago. She was such a sweet, cuddly kitty who lived a very short but hopefully full life. We miss her very much. She was hit around 10 or 11 on a Saturday night and a man who knows the family found her, moved her to the side of the road so she wouldn't keep getting run over and took her collar so he could call us in the morning. We buried her in the woods and I would like to plant something over her soon, in remembrance. I knew it was a possibility that having and outdoor cat could result in this, but I honestly didn't think it would happen so soon. We'll miss you sweet kitty.
