All in All, It's Been a Pretty Exciting Weekend Around Here

Frank learned how to ride a two-wheeler without training wheels. This was... ahem... forced on him just a bit as the training wheels on his new bicycle (purchased at a rummage sale two weeks ago) absolutely refused to stay pointed in the right direction.

The girls and I went to a baby shower for a cousin yesterday. I'm very pleased that I was able to drive our huge van through downtown Milwaukee without a glitch (this is a big step for me!), but definitely the most exciting and memorable aspect of the baby shower was that the mom-to-be, despite being four weeks before her due date, had her water break right during the party and was the first to leave (for the hospital). We're still awaiting news about the new baby.

Apparently 10 percent of labors begin with the water breaking. I had that happen with Ria and it was 24 hours later that she was born.

UPDATE: Baby Aniela (Polish version of Angela) was born before this post was even written - in fact, at 4:00 this morning. Even though she was nearly 5 weeks early, she weighed in at a healthy 6+ pounds, though her lungs are somewhat underdeveloped so I imagine she'll be spending some extra time in the hospital. Prayers are, of course, appreciated.
