Loving:  how well kitty klaus and omar are get along

Giggling: at how grossed out husband gets when henry spits out chewed up food he doesnt like
Feeling:  anxious, excited, nervous, blessed 

the idea for this list came from here


  1. No to the blonde (stupidly hard to maintain), it's OK to feel isolated, yay that your husband and you are a good fit, impossible that Henry is talking already, and please do go ahead and have that kid already. The childcare thing is a tough one - I drove 100 miles a day back and forth to daycare/work/daycare/home at one point to have the boys in a place I was comfortable with. Will cast out a prayer or 2 that you solve this dilemma soon. --Kerry

  2. Love this post! Can't wait to meet baby Girl and I hope any anxieties you have melt away with the summer heat and the promise that God knows exactly what's in store for your beautiful family. Hugs!
