We also want to spend as much one-on-one time with Mayumi as humanly possible before she looses her number-one star status in our household. Thus--trips to the local farm to indulge her in her absolute most favorite thing: animals.
Christmas time in Reston (a nearby town) is quite fun. A huge tree, skating rink, and gingerbread village COMPLETE with train are just some of the features. We went over there weekly last year. This was our first 'holiday season' visit. You can't really tell but we are standing in front of the candy village and train. I ask you: have you seen a cuter Mayumi in your LIFE? The darling hat is straight from Bolivia and courtesy of one of my fabulous students (thank you Jamie!).
And what blog post would be complete without a random yumi muvi? Here's Mayumi dancing...not as vigorously as she is known to do, but definitely getting down.
In case anyone is wondering, I am just 8 days away from my due date...yay! I think I am ready for her--ready to switch from anticipation into reality. Still going to the gym, still feeling great. This probably means she's NOT coming out for a bit yet. I felt fabulous until the day before Mayumi was born so if that is any indication of how it will be this time...we may still be in for a wait.
