baby boom
Can we just move to a big house in the country and make gourmet baby food?

3 questions:

1. How do working moms do it?
2. How do stay-at-home moms do it?
3. How do parents do it?

As exciting as this time is, I wish I could just have a tiny sneak peek a year into the future; we’ll have a 6 month old, I will have been back to work for a few months. Everything will be ok, right?

Random thoughts: When will my desire to cook ANYTHING come back, eating out does not bode well for saving money. Is it normal to have only put on 5 pounds by 15 weeks? I keep telling myself the weight I put on before I was pregnant factors into baby weight - right? heh. Why did we spend twice as much on a twin guest bed than I thought we would? I blame Chris, he liked the more expensive one better :) Can I really paint if we get low or 0 VOC paint? A little over 3 weeks before we hopefully find out what we’re having (eeee!!) But most importantly, the u/s will show that everything is coming along nicely, just like it should, right? All tests will come back with good results? Will the vintage theme I’m going for in the nursery end up just looking hodge podge? We switched bedrooms this weekend, why does it feel more strange to sleep in a different bedroom in your house than it does to stay in a hotel?

That is all for now. Well, not really, but it’s a good place to stop.
