Monday Outtakes

Thoughtfully penned on April 11th, 2011 and generally concerning E, J, Life with littles, Pregnancy, S

I want to write, but I only have a very few minutes before the littles emerge from rest time. So, I’ll give you a few outtakes from our day.

~ I am 23 weeks pregnant today. We have a lot to accomplish in the next 17ish weeks.

~ I wore a pair of non-maternity pants to my meeting this morning. I’m wondering how I kept them on my body pre-pregnancy.

~ S got her first busted knee this morning. J was trying to be helpful and hold her hand. He pulled a little too much.

~ We left home this morning in the rain. J had rain boots and no rain jacket. E had a rain jacket but wasn’t wearing her boots. I was wearing sandals. How’s that for prepared?

~ I’m trying a new recipe for dinner tonight. The listed prep time was 20 minutes. It took me almost an hour. And 3 pots/skillets. It’s a slow cooker recipe.

~ J’s birthday is this week. He’s requested a blueberry cake with chocolate icing. And Buzz and Woody on top.

~ E is singing a song to J about “never, ever play with matches.” At least we have fire safety covered.

~ In the car this morning, E was pretending to be a cat named Rainbow. She told me I could call her “rain” or “bow” or “rainbow” or just “cat”.

Hope you are all having a great Monday!

Friday five

Thoughtfully penned on April 1st, 2011 and generally concerning Uncategorized

This is the random thoughts on baby girl number 3 version of Friday five.

1. We’re working on a name. I think we might have settled on a first name, but we’ll see.

2. Matt said that J does have one advantage in being the only boy – he’ll have his own bedroom.

3. Aunt Lu says J will be well prepared for marriage after growing up in a house full of girls.

4. The other day E was singing a song about her “new baby sister is coming near my birthday”. I asked her what if baby was born on her birthday. She said, “that would be crazy to have three birthdays on the same day!” (she and Pops share a birthday)

5. We need a few pieces of equipment (bouncy seat, maybe a swing) since we gave away some (swing) and some (bouncy seat) didn’t survive the first three. It’s kind of neat to think I can buy girly things since this will be the last baby. She’ll also have to have some clothes of her own, of course; although, I’m hoping she’ll be able to wear most of E’s and S’s clothes.
