Makes Me Merry Monday #3

30 Down, 10 to Go!

Happy Monday, friends!

Today, I’m merry because we have only 10 weeks until Baby arrives!  Woo hoo! (which also means we only have about 10 weeks until Christmas)

I have fuzzy, child-taken pictures of me at 30 weeks!

30 weeks

I’ve laughed a lot lately because we’ve done NOTHING to prepare for Baby #5!  At this point with the other children, we had sweet nurseries, clean and neatly folded clothes in the drawers, and all the gear a parent could need!  Oh yeah, we had names picked out, too!

This pic doesn’t really show the “baby belly” very well! 😦

Poor Baby 5.  We love you so much, but we are much more laid back parents now.  😉

In the dentist’s office the other day, I picked up a Parents magazine.  I saw the funniest list called Raising Your First Child vs. Your Second Child.  (And where does that leave “fifth child”?) Here is a little snippet…


First Kid: All homemade in special baby-food processor. Quinoa! Spinach! Sweet potatoes!
Second Kid: Crackers.

First Kid: All handmade out of wood. Mostly Swedish.
Second Kid: The boxes his brother’s toys came in.

First Kid: Every night in a special bathtub that’s just the right size. Hand-washed with a soft cloth or silky sponge.
Second Kid: Twice a week. Swimming pools count.

      Ha ha! I know! I remember when I just had 2. Once my husband got them ready for bed and didn’t put on pj tops and bottoms that matched. I remember thinking, “Oh no! That top doesn’t match those pants!” Now nobody has anything that matches! 🙂

    I absolutely love this post and the list!!! Won’t ever forget the shirt I had on Jack…..Daddy’s little Cowgirl!!! And, putting Mary Sorrels’ pjs on Catherine and vice versa!!! Only Nana would get that confused 🙂
