I am so excited for this week and New Years!!! 2009!!! The year our babies will be born. I am so excited about just getting to January! I can't believe that we are all getting so close.
I have really been through it with emotions during this pregnancy. I have struggled with being pregnant in the first place . . . since this was completely the opposite of planned! I have struggled with putting weight on after I had just lost 25 pounds. I have struggled with the thought of adding another child to our mix. And I have just been all over the map with my moods.
But I am so excited to say that all of those things have just corrected themselves. I am so excited about this baby girl that I can hardly contain myself. My children are excited and their excitement is so contagious. They can't wait to meet their brand new sister . . . something they have never had! My husband is excited about it too . . . I already told him that I know that he's going to want to hog her all to himself, but he's going to have to share her a little! And he just said . . . well, if you already know I am going to do that . . . you should just get used to the idea!
We went up north for a few days to spend some time with family, and we had such a wonderful time. It was very low key, which is good . . . and we really enjoyed it. I don't know where we will live come next year, but I hope to be able to repeat our pattern in following years for Dec. 25th.
I am going to try and make a pinata this week with the children. My children know what they are but have never done one before. So, I thought we could make on Monday, and smack it open on New Years Day for something fun. They will LOVE that!
In a few short days, we can all mostly say . . . our baby will be born next month. (although, potentially some of them will be born in Jan. and I suppose some may be born in March)
