I definitely need to take more pics of Dodi-girl. The rain has hit here with a vengeance so I suppose I will not get the beach photos taken that I wanted to. oops.
Yesterday the girls and I did a 2 mile walk (Leslie Sansone) and today the girls and I did a basic bellydance dvd. Really fun to have some exercise buddies.
I really should have exercised more during pregnancy because let me tell you - I probably would have felt even better if I had and I am a bit out of shape. (ok. lots. I'm the largest I've ever been and I've always been a chunkamuffin).
Took a pregnancy test last night because it was been since Sept. since I took one (I am trying to take one on the first of every month) and you guessed it.....
Yeah, no baby in June for me. lol Ofcourse, I would have been all *panic*panic*panic* if it had been positive, but there is something about being an older mom and new babies that just makes me so sad that I may have held my last newborn. I am enjoying this baby unlike my others.
It isnt that she is so easy -car rides are a constant scream along with me gripping the steering wheel in frustration for the whole duration, not to mention that during her waking hours its 'hold me, hold me.nurse, nurse..scoot around on the rug, cry, nurse me - repeat - no thanks to a jumperoo, or swing or anything like that) and she is not a nappy baby (today she has napped which is why we went with the bellydance dvd and why I am here!)
just that I realize how sweet this stage is, how fast it does pass, and how hard they get as they age. LOL
I stressed so much when they were all little about mistakes I was making that I didn't really enjoy babyhood. Ofcourse, probably the same thing can be said when the older kids get even older. Home schooling is a lot of stress (am I doing this right? oh no, so-so isn't on grade level etc) and mommy guilt is soooo intense sometimes.
Products of our environments I suppose.
Anyways, all this to say -- all is well. I love my girl...and I have dishes to conquer and lessons to teach and *sniff* maybe a shower would do me some good.
Love to you all - hope every one is good.
haha, I just heard her making her *scoffing* noises. like "I'm awake - where are my servants???"
