He's here. 8lbs 14 oz. of cute chubby cheeks. Everyone is doing well. We are in love.

Defining Goals

It seems more than a little foolhardy to make goals for the next month and a half. When have I ever done things the easy way though.

1. Fall in love all over again! Yeah new baby! Love up on the family!
2. Only smart, well thought out purchases. Curb the consumerism.
3. Finish at least 2 projects that I have started. There is more than enough of these throughout the house and they probably range from a 5 minute job to a few days. I have been finishing projects like crazy around here in the last few weeks and it feel so good. Must keep it up.

I miss you my loves

"Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others...for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received."

Making Valentines, Sharing the Love

LM and I have been crafting it up. This is a somewhat major development in our household since he is 3 1/2 and has shown no interest in crafts or coloring until the last month. Being craft obsessed you might imagine how excited I am. I think what finally pushed him over the edge was his desire to write his alphabet. He loves it.

Well, he also loves stickers, regular and foam stickers. This weekend we made little Valentines that we will stick onto lollipops. LM decided he is a big fan of the glitter and glue. Can't say I blame him. These are just a few of our efforts. I say "our" only because I got to play with the Cricut machine DH got me for Christmas. Unlimited crafty potential in that thing!

Who needs to see their feet?

Well, just a few more days of being an expectant mom. Not sure I will be here again and it is making me a bit sad. Anticipation and waiting is a bit better this time than when I waited for the first little man. It is easier now to take it one day at a time and enjoy the anticipation rather than the anxious waiting that it felt like before.

I am bigger this time than ever before which is really saying something. I have not gained anywhere near as much weight though and this little one seems to be taking out real estate only in the very front. Probably wanting water front property like his father.

It is a beautiful day here. One of the truths about living in northern New York state is that when any sun comes out and it climbs above freezing, everyone vacates their houses, some in their short sleeves. Evidence my DH (who in this photo just hit little man with a snowball- and LM thought it was funny. Those two are two of a kind.)
