time marches on

I'm getting big and tired in this heat. I try to remind myself I will not look like a blimp forever but I hate looking in the mirror. I ate too many beans today, I will not elaborate the consequence of that. Compared with the amount of obsessing a first pregnancy gets the second one goes on pretty much unnoticed in the background of life. I haven't bought a single thing for the baby, sleeping arrangements are still in flux. Some progress has been made on closets etc, but not enough real work as been done and I'm not worried either. We were so busy before Anika, I can't imagine what the hell we were doing?

We've been thinking of names, lists are made and revised. perfect names on one day quickly fade into oblivion the next. We asked Anika what she wanted to call her baby brother, she said without hesitation,"Darling baby".

On the weekend Dh was reading Anika a new book we got her called, 'Baby whales drink milk', she listened attentively and then thought a while before she said," Papa, mama is my first love." Sigh sigh sigh.

I love her heart and how she easily she expresses her love for you and everyone.

All the arrangements?...will work out. Planning will happen, and then your family will settle into what works for you :)

Love you!

I'm so much more relaxed about number 2 as well. When we asked our boy what we should name his baby sister, he said Caleb (as we had recently met Heather's new Caleb). I'm all for gender-neutral names, but that's a bit much for me! Darling is much sweeter.

Oh, her sweetness melts my heart. What a doll she is!

so glad to see you're back! Even with our Amie - first and so far only child - we didn't do any preparations. And it all worked out. I always say children are like houses: a five-year-plan (gasp, which means I have only one more year to make it all perfect!)...
