WOW - I can't believe it's been over 2 months since my last post. Sorry about that. Things have been moving so fast. I don't think I've announced it officially - but I'm pregnant. In fact - I'm only 3 months from D-day. With working full time, being involved in Compass, and trying to prepare for baby - I haven't had much time for blogging.
I'll try to post more often - but can't make any promises.
About baby, though - we've decided to let the gender of the baby remain a suprise. I'm really excited about that aspect. We're trying to come up with names - but probably won't decide until baby is here. I'd hate to realize after baby is born that the name we've chosen doesn't really fit them. We'll wait and see the kid first. But we do have some front-runners...I'll save the unveiling for another time.
My daughter is graduating kindergarten tomorrow night. I'm feeling quite old. It seems that just yesterday she was that tiny little girl I just met. Now sometimes I feel she's smarter than I am. We're going to have a graduation party - my husband says it's stupid, but my kid thinks its cool and I agree. Probably will invite the cousins and, of course, her best friend purple bear.
I think its kind of cool that my kid's best friend is a little bear who's voice sounds like a much younger and weirder version of her own. Someday she'll outgrow him, but for now it makes me feel like she's still my little baby with her favorite stuffed bear by her side. I think I'll cherish it just a little longer before I prompt her to let him go.
I've decided I'm carrying a human octopus. This kid is kicking all the time - and all over the place. Sometimes I have to hold on to something to keep from falling over - not an exaggeration. Have you ever noticed that there are certain times of the year when it seems like everywhere you go the place is crawling with pregnant women? I went to Target the other day and counted almost 10 pregnant women - and I didn't even go all over the whole store. Weird.
I guess that's all I got - I'll try to keep posting, but usually if I have a spare minute - I find myself napping.
