St. Ann's Festival

I'm expecting that soon this blog will be taken over with new baby pictures ... the real addition to the McCabe household that we've been waiting for.  But as for now....  we are still waiting.  41 weeks today.  My midwife is saying that everything looks healthy with the boy - he's definitely a boy - I had another ultrasound today - he just doesn't want to come out and meet the world yet.  
So this weekend we went swimming one day and yesterday, we walked up to the shopping plaza and then to another festival. 
Daphne's new hat... And now the computer is not recognizing my memory card - will try posting more again tomorrow.

St. Dominic's Festival

We're still just waiting.....
And in the meantime went to the St. Dominic Festival.  Daphne liked the festival very much - she liked playing games, eating cotton candy and riding rides (that is in her own words).  Joey liked watching the rides from a distant but he did go on a merry-go-round horse for the first time (usually he likes sitting on the benches).

 Riding.a motorcycle.

Happy Birthday Joey!

2 Years!!  My how they go fast.
 June, 2009 - All the pictures of Joey are of him sleeping at this time.
 1 year old birthday party. 
2 year old birthday - still has the same great big smile and infectious laugh.  He's talking more and more everyday and loves to copy whatever his big sister is doing.  Can't wait to see what he will be like with his baby brother.

Butterfly show...

Some more family fun before the baby arrives (the pictures were taken yesterday - on the due date).  It's kind of fun telling people that I am due today or was due yesterday - I think it really freaks a lot of people out.  But there is no baby action going on.   I saw the midwife on Monday and she said that it feels like the baby is over 9 pounds but not over 10 pounds.   Right now, we are just waiting.....
We went to the butterfly show at Krohn Conservatory and then ate lunch at Eden Park.   Both kids thought it was a lot of fun even if they were a little scared to have the butterflies land on them.

At the zoo....

We've been enjoying Kevin's time off and doing some fun family things until the baby comes...

 Daphne was upset because she was not on the gorilla.

 Me and Daphne in front of the storks (Ha!Ha!)  It has not helped, since this was on 5/19/11 and it is now the due date with no changes.
 In Lorikeet Landing.  The birds liked Daphne's velcro on her jacket.
 Feeding the goats.
 Joey and a baby 'Joey' (behind the window)
Joey was very scared of the rhinos at first - didn't even want to get out of the stroller but Kevin coaxed him into getting on one and then he loved it!
