Congrats to you newly preggo mamas, and good luck.
Meg I'm in MN too!!! and Cecilia was one of my girl names, but my partner nixed it
: good thing we had a boy, since we couldn't agree on any girl names... where are you at? Tristan was born 2 weeks and 2 days after his EDD - he was due sept 2 and was born the 18th.

Oh, my. It's been in the 30s overnight here the past two nights. We've busted out our sweaters and wool socks and have been baking things looking for excuses to run the oven to warm it up as we are NOT turning on our furnace before the ducts get cleaned next week. Pumpkin bread, baked apples, etc. I've been working on getting a couple of sleep sacks from Germany, this unique kind that have a cotton outside and a wool fleece inside, as our house has been very cool at night. The things are EXPENSIVE but I've been tracking some used...
Tristan is walking all over and saying more things now - he says "hatchi!" when people sneeze (German for "ahchoo!"), "auf" for being picked up ("auf den Arm" = to be carried in arms), and what he's learned this week from Lucy - "uh oh" when he drops something... very fun.
Our visit from Sarah and Lucy has been very, very nice and I'm sad they're going home tomorrow. I feel like there are a ton more things we can do and that we haven't taken much time to just relax or go play at a park. We went to the Hanna outlet, and yesterday IKEA, and today the thrift store. Busy, busy, busy.
I found a set of Hanna striped long johns at the thrift store today for $3! They were in the Halloween section (?!!)...
