Good Friday morning! I'm so sleepy today that I've already spilled coffee all over the circ desk. Gonna be a good day!!!
Indigo~ WOOHOOO!! Your biggo baby will be here soon! I'll bet she shows up over the weekend, eh? ELV to your sweetie~ can't wait for the announcement and the pix!
Seraf~ I love the pix of your li'l bit sitting up in that chair! And your other li'l bit being a bundly lump~ so cute! When Alice got big enough for her high chair it was a revolution, because she was finally able to just chill for a frickin moment and let me get something done. Pretty soon you'll have a housefull, eh? I can't imagine. THAT will be the riot, eh?
Isa~ NAMES! What a chore, eh? It's a wonderful one, but it can be so tricky and so hard to find the right one. I personally don't think your rules are stupid. We liked the name Sophie, but it's so popular we ruled it out at once. Everyone has made good suggestions so far, for sure. I like but did not use Eleanor, Josephine, Saskia, Lydia, Evangeline, Betsy and Bernadette. There were more, too, I'm sure I'll think of them later....
Gumshoe~ Ellery is another of the names we liked, but we liked it for a boy. I also love the name Martin for boy, but DP said no (and then it was a moot point)
Wehrli~ I can't believe your kiddo's nine months!! But then I guess, so is mine (or just about!) She's got two teeth on bottom and one about to bust through on the top. He'll be walking any minute now, I'm sure.
Desert~ Nice to hear from you again! Maybe your DP will be lucky with her first tri. I never had any sickness, and only a 'normal' amount of fatigue. I don't know anything about gluten free food, though. Sorry!
I'm forgetting people, I'm sure... Sorry!!
AFM~ Alice is still a treat every day! We're finally imposing more rigid bedtimes on her, with mixed results. Previously I've just held her in my lap to sleep and then taken her to bed when we go, but I've gotten tired of being trapped in my chair, and DP got cranky about me never sitting by her any more, so now I take Alice in and lie down with her until she sleeps, then sneak out of the room. Then she sleeps for about 45 minutes and wakes up and I go back in to her, repeat repeat. It's a bit aggravating for me, truthfully, but I don't know what else to do. We went to our friends' house for New Years and I spent almost the entire evening in their son's room trying to get Alice back to sleep. Finally I just gave up and went to sleep myself and DP came and got me for a midnight smooch. So that's the low, the highs are getting higher all the time. She's started to babble 'mama mama' a lot, and often looks for me while she does it, though I wouldn't say she calls me that just yet. Still, I doubt it will be much longer. She's also pulling up and dancing a lot. Quite a sense of rhythm, that gal! I'm a good dancer too, so we'll boogie together.
Ok, much love to the people I've forgotten. Thinking of you all!
Go Indigo's baby! Go!!!
