Has it been that long?

Dear Baby,

I should be 35 weeks along with you at this point.  I should know if you were a boy or a girl.  I should be feeling you hiccuping and kicking.  I should have seen your face on ultrasound by now.  I should be relishing these next few weeks, because if you were to be like your sister, I could have expected you to arrive next week.  I should be shopping for last minute items.  I should be packing a hospital bag.  I should have a name picked out for you.  

Instead, you remain nameless.  I don't know if you were a boy or a girl.  I never saw your face on ultrasound.  I never felt your kicks.  But that doesn't mean I don't think of you.  I think of you everyday when I see your sister's face and wonder if you would look like her. 

You are a part of me.  And I miss you everyday.

A busy summer

Wow...time gets away from me rather quickly these days.  Unless I make a serious effort to post something, I tend to put it off in favor of being outside...or playing with Lexi.  Either way, the time is enjoyable. 

We had a rather pleasant weekend here in my part of the country.  Sunny and NO RAIN!  Ugh, I was getting so tired of rain day in and day out.  It was nice to get outside and get some fresh air and sun!

Lexi is all signed up for her summer classes.  She will be enjoying all kinds of arts and crafts, swimming, athletics etc this summer.  But not too much.  One class is in June...the next in July...one in August and her swim class overlaps June and July.  She will be a busy toddler.  I'm very much of the opinion that kids need activities to keep them busy...but not so many activities that they have no down time.  This schedule will be perfect for her:

Weeping Willows pre pre-school class.  Wed & Thurs from 9 - 11am June 8th - 30th
Water Babies II Swim class.  Tu & Thurs from 6 - 6:30pm June 14th - July 7th
Toddlers in Action.  Fri 10 - 10:45am July 8th - 29th
Teeny Tiny Tots.  Sat 9 - 9:45am Aug 6th - 27th

Weeping Willows is sans parent...the rest parents attend.  So we'll see how she does without anyone staying.
