I've got a Mama bluebird right off my porch, but she's still sitting . DS must check every single morning to see if the baby bluebirds are hatched yet.

I just don't think it's fair that we have to give birth to the whole critter! I'd much rather lay an egg and carry it around (outside my body) for a few months...
Not much longer though for us!

LMAO, I thought you were going to say all the mamas whose babies have already arrived in our DDC!

And I was getting ready to agree (even though I'm of course very, very happy for them!! ).

But our turn is coming, even though these last few weeks have seemed very, very, very long!

Could be worse. . . good thing we aren't giraffes with a six-foot baby that have HOOVES! At least a human head is round and smooth.

we have a robin who has built a nest outside one of our basement windows. Dh's desk is right there so he gets to watch it all day. So far, one new blue egg.
I can't wait to see the baby!

The funny thing here is that when i planted tulips in the fall, i thought, 'when these bloom, our baby will be about to be born!' Well. All around town *all* of the tulips are blooming. Guess who's tulips are still green buds?

I drove past a horse with a new colt today and was soooo envious. So, yeah, it may be pathetic, but you're sure not the only one

my dh thinks i'm nuts that i'm so obsessed with the fact that our tulips haven't bloomed yet...i guess i've discovered what this is really about- and it isn't the tulips!

And NIP-ing would be soooo easy! The nipples are inside the pouch! I could so not sweat bringing DC with me into class. As it is, I'm scared if I try I'll end up spraying milk all over some innocent classmate and causing a huge mess. (I'll end up NIP-ing eventually, but I hav eto go back to class after a week or two. I fear the learning curve may take logner than that for both of us).

My poor babies... I can't tell you how many times I gave the kids a breastmilk shower. Makes 'em sweet and sticky... and later they smell like sour milk.

BBM-- I am starting to think we are leading parallel pregnancies. I've put in an order for Sunday May 7 after 9 p.m. but before Monday May 8 4 a.m. How does that sound to you? What about finding an acupuncturist for Sunday afternoon/evening?

Dh and I doing a belly cast tonight and watching Pride & Prejudice. Tomorrow he's power washing and scraping the house to get it ready to paint. I want to paint it yellow, but he thinks I'm making hormone-based decisions on paint colors. :giggle:

Cool, now I know for sure! That's hilarious that it was on your placemat.
