What is it about water that is so intriguing? Occasionally, when I need a few moments to myself, I clear out the sink of the dirty dishes, fill it with a few clean ones, turn the water on a light flow, and let Antalya climb up on a chair and pretend to wash the dishes. It is one her most favorite activities. She will play for as long I let her. I am always grateful when I discover safe, stay-put activities that hold Antalya's attention for more than a couple minutes.
On a completely different note, a few of you know I had an amnio done last week. We have been a little concerned with a few things about this pregnancy. Just wanted to let those of you who have been wondering know that the amnio came back normal. I have another ultrasound later next week to check the babies growth. Although we haven't let ourselves spend anytime worrying about things, I must admit that I will breathe a big sigh of relief when that is over. Hopefully all these tests will be for nothing other than a mama's peace of mind that everything is fine. I can't wait to meet this new little girl. For those of you wondering, we still don't have a name picked out and are open to suggestions. The only requirement is that it must be a name of a place somewhere in the world.
