Ryann - Love the pics of the babies reading together. Adorable!!
Lou - Love that new pic of Chloe, oh what a doll she is! Sorry you have to go back to work soon, but I'm glad you've got your plan in place for daycare.
Annashope - Paul is such a cutie! I love how happy he looks in his bouncer. And a cruise sounds like so much fun. I hope you'll post pics.
Blair - Great news that you'll get to stay home with the girls! I love staying home with Maribel. The days are long sometimes (like today will be since she decided to start her day at 3:55am...why, I have no idea LOL) but it's amazing to see all that she learns and discovers. And she makes me laugh all day with her big cheeky, gummy smile so even a long day is full of smiles.
l'll probably have to go back to work next year, unless DH goes to Afghanistan, in which case I'll stay home longer. But I'm just cherishing every day I do get to stay with her.
Alisa & Yingz - You're almost there! Can't wait to see pics of Evelyn and Chloe when they arrive.
Kat - You must be a really nice person because I'd be telling my boss to take a flying leap if they asked me to return to work that early. Geez, you just had major surgery and you waited so long for little Lucas, the least they could do is let you enjoy a few weeks with him. UGH! Not nice! And hang in there. I remember those early weeks of complete and utter exhaustion and I rejoiced every time Maribel slept just a little bit longer. (Of course, this morning she had a bottle at 1:30am and got up for the day at 3:55am so I kinda feel like she's back to her newborn ways today.) But Lucas will stretch those sleep times soon, even if it's just a little.
I know sometimes these "Babies Born" threads slow down or even screech to a halt after everyone has their babies. So if you're interested in connecting with me on Facebook, pm me and I'll give you my email addy to find me on there (or tell me how to find you.) Hope everyone has a very Happy New Year!!
