spacing game! 15 mo between the first pair, 18 months between these two. :) very typical in my little happy church world (and "so close" to everyone else. Hey, I will have three teenagers at once with this one, we will be unstoppable at cleaning!). Not looking forward to having three potentially in diapers at once but we have plenty of cloth diapers so supply won't be an issue. Diapers are not my favorite thing but at least with cloth I always have the right size on hand, no store runs every few days (we did that with our first, so frusterating!)
jul511riv, I wish you had a trip to Oregon planned sometime soon. I would load you up. Are you on facebook? I ask because there are several coops and other groups where you might get a good deal on inexpensive or Americanly used baby items. I could add you to my favorite groups, they may or may not be worth it with shipping but its worth looking into, especially since you wouldn't have to pay taxes on items that are not new in the box :). Could you team up with your husband on the blessing idea? Come up with a way for him to ask your mom in law, friend, or someone, to "help" him plan a "suprise" shower / henna whichever is most important/believable, for you. :) Teamwork! That is what I would do if no one was going to do it for me. Although we are talking about a gift exchange within the DDC so that might be a fun way for you to get some celebrating on as well. Oh and there is a birth bead exchange too, I hope you can join in on that, I am hosting it and would be happy to cover return postage if that was a pcomplication for you, since you're in Israel. I miss living there!
I am told 2-3 is the hardest transition, hoping this gets easier over time but just trying to lay a good foundation for now :)
