Hi everyone! Wow, this thread is rockin!! I scanned all the posts, sounds like everyone is doing pretty well. I am so happy!
I am about asleep on my feet - I volunteered at dd1's preschool's pancake breakfast this morning - nearly four hours of cooking, cleaning up, etc., with Ellen on me in the carrier. Whew! Won't be doing that again. But it was a ton of fun, and Sofie had a ball.
I have a cat napper too. Just like dd1, though, so it just seems normal to me. What takes me by surprise is that she will fall asleep without nursing, and that she sleeps three to five hour stretches at night.
Ellen is just a love. Not that Sofia is not sweet as all get out, but she has this bouncing off the walls intensity that Ellen doesn't have, and it is a nice break. Also, Sofie is very much an extrovert, whereas I sense already that Ellen is an introvert, like dh and I, which will also be a nice break. Not sure I could have two recharging their batteries by bouncing off of me all day!
Aimee, I think of you often. Hoping and praying the boys are both home soon.
Candy, yep, I think of having one more. Most days. Then other days two seems just right. I think next fall we might reevaluate and see where we are. Unless we get a surprise (and given that both our girls are IVF babies, it would be quite a surprise!) in the meantime. Which would be SO wonderful!
Oh, that reminds me - anyone here good with dream analysis? I had the nicest, oddest dream the other night. For some reason I was at this party thrown by Warren Buffet, and he was giving away $160 million dollars. He threw a pearl necklace into the crowd and whoever caught it won the money. In my dream, I stood there with my hands out, but not really expecting anything, and the necklace actually floated down right into my hands! I just feel like this dream means something. Guess I should play the lottery this week, just in case, huh?
