Pregnancy Notes: Week 25

I don't know where this "9 months" bologna came about. It is 10 months.
As we go about our days now, I'm starting to visualize a fourth child in the mix. It sounds great. We are great when we are all together. Like this, above:3 in the afternoon post-zoo unwinding with crayons on roll out paper. Craig is smooth. He smooths us out. I breath a little easier when he is there. This fourth will be great because he will be there.

My girlfriend tried to convince me that really it is only 9 months (mind you she has had 3 children) because if you add 1 day for january but subtract 2 days for february.. etc you really only get 9 months (including subtracting the first two weeks you aren't really pregnant). Now mind you, she did this while I was 7 months pregnant. You can imagine the look she got from me. I agree with you sister- it is 10 FREAKING months.

Heidi - what a kind compliment! Not only very generously calling me your hero, but giving me the honor of being complimented along with one of my most inspiring friends- Jordan.

Jordan, I am SO excited for you. Four has been such a tremendous blessing but SO busy, and it truly does make all the difference in the world when the hubby is around. I would have to agree with you that with our 4, Mike makes things "smooth" too, just as Craig does for you.

Love the smoothing a husband can give. Darling photo.

I was just thinking on Saturday how smoother it is when Kalani is home. Kai just runs in and out of the yard following him around helping him with his projects. It calmed some nerves I have about being ready for our new arrival.

The muffins were delicious! I had a feeling they would be good because the recipe came from you! I'm excited for your fourth too! Your children and husband are lucky!

I love the "Craig is smooth" line. That's perfectly how I feel about my Jim. By 5 pm I'm always ready for him to come effortly work out the day's wrinkles...his presence alone often does the job.
