I, for one, am OVER it.
I'm 37 weeks and a handful of days today and I want off this ride. I want #4 out. Out of my belly and away from my ribs and off my bladder. I don't remember feeling quite so desperate for the end with the other babes. Maybe it has to do with the summer heat. Maybe it's the recent hearing/ear issues I'm having, which has led to headaches and dizziness and the ENT and a general sense of woe-is-me, my-life-is-so-hard. Yesterday I literally spent 80% of the day in bed. B Daddy took the kids to church, to the pool and out to lunch while I lay at home on the couch and groaned and slept and wished these last few weeks of incubation away.
Speaking of the kids - the big kids are great. They are all really excited for the next little guy to join the team. It's been approximately 12 months since you had a proper update on their fabulous selves, so here's one last Kiddo Update while the count is still at 3.
Kid is 5 y'all. FIVE. Kindergarten age.
Old enough to remember these days when he's an old man. (BTW that paper says, "Spiderman can climb walls.")
Likes: precision, pickles, being read to, swimming in the deep end
Dislikes: inconsistency, reading practice, not being able to do things perfectly the first time
Oh this daughter of ours.
At only 3.5 years she already has so much life bottled up in her tiny being.
Special Skills: dancing "like a ballerina", telling stories (girl could keep anyone entertained)
Likes: "reading", wearing twirly dresses, giving hugs, volume
Dislikes: dinner, authority, hair bows
Our 2 year old monster.
This little guy is talking all the time and proving to be quite a playmate for the other two.
Likes: hummus, bath time, sidewalk chalk
Dislikes: apologizing, babysitters
