A Walk in the Park

Today we decided to get out of the house for awhile since we've been a bit cooped up in the apartment. Mom & I took the train in to the city to meet Anthony and walk around Central Park. I've heard that taking a long walk can induce labor so I thought it was worth a try. It's also supposed to start raining tomorrow and not stop until Monday, so we figured we'd take advantage of the warmer weather. We started down at the 72nd street east entrance and showed mom the boat house and bethesda terrace, then we had lunch and listened to a pretty great jazzy band near the mall. After that we weren't totally worn out yet so we walked up behind the met to show Mom the reservoir. I'm pretty beat now so if walking is supposed to get things started we'll find out soon enough. If not, we'll have to come up with other ideas to pass the time. I think I've tried all of the natural induction options (except for acupuncture, which I'm too chicken to try.)
Here's a picture of Grandma, Leona, and I in the park.
And here's Anthony, Leona, and I in front of the firehouse on the way home.

  1. Between all that walking, and the oncoming rain, little Leona should be here very soon. I hope so anyway, just dying to meet her already!
