Just wanted to say that I think February is a *great* month to have a baby!

Now that the holidays are over, hopefully you have a minute to put your feet up, hunker down and hibernate these last few weeks.

I loved being secluded during the cold months with my new dd, snuggling her like a big mama bear. And as spring dawned we began to venture out, first just around the block, then further and further. As the weather got warmer, I got stronger and the weight began to come off. By June all my pregnancy weight (45 lbs) was gone and I felt great in my new (relatively) "slim" body.

At 10.5 months my dd was a joy to share the holidays with, wonderfully entertaining, and charmed all the relatives.

I wish you all the best of luck, you're in for a great year!

mama to : my spirited star 2/06, my sweet love 5/08, and a little lovey 5/12

Thanks for the well wishes! I just wish we were having winter weather here. It's too darn hot! 70 degrees is too hot for my 8 months pregnant body!

What a thoughtful and sweet thing to do, Lisa. Thanks! It's lovely to see a perspective on the whole thing.
I agree, we're lucky indeed. (but I too wish it were a little more wintery)

We've had winter since Oct 14.: You can have some of ours.

Thanks, Lisa, for that wonderful encouragement. I really think it will be a fun time to have a baby.
