Monday...

Happy Monday! Happy because I am not working (my blackberry is close by, but I am not really working)!! It is nice to be officially on leave! Today is also Nana's (aka Becky, Shane's Mom) birthday, a very important, BIG birthday =)!! Here is the picture I sent her of the kids this morning telling her happy birthday! Owen has a spoon, not sure why, but Owen is in his own world these days =). I would love to give Becky another granddaughter on her bday, but I picture Bree holding on to my left ribs with the power of the jaws of life =)! So instead, we will just have to go with a Francesca's gift card =)! Happy Birthday Nana! We love you!! You are gorgeous and such a great Nana (and Mom and MIL)!! Hope you have a great day!!!

So no baby this weekend. She is just fine in there, and really if she holds on for 11 more days, it is ok with me. We are now getting close to O's birthday and Claire has a lot going on next week and I need to be well and not recovering. I am really taking it easy and hoping she can take it easy on me until then! It is so close, it is crazy!!! I am keeping myself busy this week (not moving too much busy, just things to do busy =)) so it goes by fast and before you know it, it will be next week and we will be so close!!! I am really trying to just take in these last few days of my very last time to be pregnant, EVER. As miserable as I am most days, these are the last moments of anticipation of meeting the newest member of our family...the feelings of the last few kicks and jabs inside me...and then she will be here and everything will just fly by!! This time 3 years ago, I was in the same boat, but even closer to having Owen. Owen was harder on me than Bree at this point and I remember thinking "I am not even going to live to see my son" =). Now, he we are 3 years later, he is running around like a banshee, refusing to go in the potty, tormenting his sister and trying his hardest to make room in my lap =)! Time goes by so fast....don't even get me started on the fact Claire is going to Kindergarten!!!!!!!

Have a great day!! I am sure I will blog a lot this week...

I'm sure you'll be able to make room for one more on your lap with plenty of love to go around!

Hey Rachel! Hang in there! Bree will be here soon! I can not wait to see updates on your blog of the little darling! I am soooooo excited for Bree to get here and I've never even met you! :) It's a bloggy-world thing I guess.
