Things are progressing well on the "all things baby" front. The nursery is coming together, the work countdown is now at 8.5 days, and I can't sleep worth a damn.
I also wanted to put out the information for the CPR class that Steve and I will be hosting- the CPR class will cover adult, child AND infant CPR so this is a perfect class for expectant parents and their families, or people who babysit and could use these skills. If we can get 8 people signed up the class is $25 per person...if you cared to actually get certified too (like taking the test and everything) it's an additional $15. To take the class through the American Red Cross or through many of the hospitals, it's closer to $100 a person so this is a really good savings. The instructor is fully certified and works independently so she is able to avoid many of the administrative fees and operating costs- hence our discount!
The CPR class will be held on Saturday, Sept. 11th at 12:30 at the Wedgewood Community Clubhouse in Alpharetta. If you would like to come please let me know and I can send you the rest of the information and we'll make sure to save you a spot!
And of course, the weekly update from Babycenter.com:
Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.
