favourite things of the day

Daffodils fresh from the garden,
lily of the valley from the garden in an oh-so-cute little pitcher,
and a fabulous baby who is definitely head-down! I had a quick ultrasound this morning, just to determine baby G's position, and s/he is indeed head down. Sounds a bit uncomfortable to me (that's something I've been wondering - why don't babies in utero have all of the blood rush to their heads and pass out when they're in there?) but it's just what we asked him / her to do. What a good baby! Again, they wouldn't really show me as they were taking the images, but I saw a round head shape, some wiggly legs, and a heart beating away. Pretty amazing!

I'm so glad Baby G has turned upside-down! That must be a relief. I'm just sitting down to have a cup of tea and one of your cookies. Mmmmmm.

Hey, I thought those were for Jesse. :) Glad you like them! I've eaten about 4 more already today... I think I need to cut myself off. And I am kind of relieved about baby G's position - hopefully baby G will just pop right out when the time comes. :)

Glad Baby G has made a move! Oh, I'm still so jealous of the lily of the valley! I still looked for some this year to buy and try to plant yet again--but didn't see any. Lovely pics.
