Our first born, Chica still lives with us...forever! Ever since she could hear the baby's heartbeat she has avoided me. We no longer snuggle, we no long cuddle, she barely greets me when I come in the house. I cannot wait for her to meet Baby Grey so she understands our family is growing and I am still her mama too.

Loves and hugs--We ADORE that little doggie!

The things I miss

1. Jeans
2. Sleeping on my back
3. Shoes
4. Bending over
5. Walking
6. Chica
7. Shopping
8. Breathing
9. Energy
10. Routine

Loves and hugs--In less than 2 weeks maybe some of these things will return.

What not to do...when you are 9 months pregnant.

I was feeling a little nostalgic last night so I started flipping through some of our old photo albums. As you know, we LOVE vacation...I mean LOVE vacation. (We try to take 2 large trips per year.) One of the photo albums was from a really good time in our life, healthy, happy, great careers, and in SHAPE. When you are 9 months pregnant and there is no end in sight, you probably shouldn't look at the healthiest you.

I just hope that girl comes back...even if I am not the same size and shape.

Loves and hugs--I miss her energy and her face.

The places WE will go!

My last night of school was Tuesday! (Well, until January.) Our teacher had us listen to The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. This story is so fitting for so many of us...especially in times of excitement and trials.

Loves and hugs--Remember you have friends to go with you!

The man I love, CC has officially started nesting! I would have thought I would be the one to start but as a non-traditional couple nothing surprises us. He has washed all the baby clothes, put them in the drawers, and sanitized all the hand-me-down toys.
(Rocking Horse from my Grandpa's storage!)

He is such a romantic...he even went to the Big Box store and purchase "Puppy Pads" for the hospital ride. Just in case my water breaks he doesn't want anything to get in his truck or my car...I feel so special!

As I type, he is pushing Chica around in the baby stroller trying to get her use to riding in, our life is really starting to take a different direction.

Loves and hugs--More to come on the puppy pad situation!
