Awww Lisa~ I'm sorry to just respond now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Our dc are thrilled about the new baby~ they would have a house full of kids if it were their choice, they are sooo excited to meet him.<br><br>
Marking the birth~ Well, I'd like to use my belly cast kit from my last pg that I never got to use because I was supposed to come home from my m/w appt and do it with my sis and mom but instead I came home a day 1/2 later with dd.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I was really looking forward to doing a tree of life mosaic last time but maybe something different will come to me this tme around.<br><br>
Energy? I have none~ if it makes you feel better, stop by and see the 7 piles of clean laundry waiting to be put away~ all over the dining room table btw,, the 5 waiting to be washed, the chaos of every bedroom and a farmhouse in disarray <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:. I've actually kinda 'fallen of the face of the earth' as my friends put it, in the last few weeks especially. I had a few huge events I was in charge of and once they were over ~ 'poof'. I'm trying to get the house in order and am as tired as my first trimester!! Not to mention, I'm just antisocial by nature in my last couple months of pg. DH calls me 'PI'~ People Intolerant. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
As for our edd~ I'd love this guy to come a couple weeks earlier than expected~ as long as all is ready, I typically go over and would loooove a target arrival birth in late July <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">. How about you?
