Pregnant Again

We just recently found out we are pregnant again. I am so happy! When I first did a home pregnancy test, it came up negative, so I thought it did not happen for us this month. A little sadness, but I figured we'd just try again next month. Then days passed and it became obvious it was time to take the test again. This time that little pink line showed up to tell me that I was indeed pregnant. Now begins the time of preparation and waiting. What will it be, boy or girl, or even how many could it be, praying for a perfectly formed, healthy, happy, intelligent and beautiful baby. So many blessings to pray for, so many things to worry over. Our family will be growing soon. Due date is 12/4/2009. Happy, happy day!

Nap time crisis

It has been a few days since we retired the baby crib. Bed time smoothed out after the first night. We kept everything else around our bedtime routine the same, and Zoe has been sleeping soundly in her big-girl bed, with only a minor hiccup here or there.

Nap time however has been tough. Wailing, crying, and high drama ensue. Now if it were just one child, I could handle it much easier, but I am now trying to get two or three children to nap at the same time. As Zoe wails, Maya imitates her, which makes Zoe laugh, and causes Maya to laugh in turn. They take forever getting to sleep and have been sleeping about half of their normal amount of time. This makes for cranky babies and a cranky Mommy too. So we struggle on and I pray for an extra hour of sleep.

Wild Woman of Borneo

My daughter is a wild woman. I happened to snap this picture of her climbing out of the pack-n-play. Ack! Needless to say, she is now sleeping in her very own "big girl" bed. Good bye crib, goodbye my little baby. We now have a little girl who runs, jumps, and climbs on as much as possible. Welcome, my little wild woman. I hope your adventurous ways serve you well in life.
