Tara had Braxton-Hicks contractions twice this week.  These are “practice contractions” for the uterus.  It is a little early to be able to feel them at this point.   Actually they are suppose to start around 6 weeks but most women do not feel them until the third trimester.  But Tara is expecting them so more attentive to the sensations. 


Today we went to Baby’s R Us for the first time to buy an organic mattress.  Not as nice as the organic mattresses I have seen at places like http://naturepedic.com, but we don’t expect to be using the crib all that much anyway.  I did test drive the different strollers and could see why the Bugaboo is so popular.  But it is big and heavy and does not fold easily.  So it is great for pedestrian NY but if we were in the suburbs and using a car it would be a pain in the butt.  But we are going to use a sling at the beginning so not sure which one we will get in the end. 


Later we went to friends, Aimee and Kevin, for a goodbye party – they are moving to Ithaca.  This is their new baby Valor.
