I Fear...

...that the pregnancy brain has sunk in. I tried to go to work in my slippers last week, I'm constantly calling people back because I forgot to tell them something the first time around. I keep forgetting to buy key ingredients for dinner (which is why we are having pizza for dinner tonight rather than the chicken quesadillas I had planned... two fails on that end - no guacamole and the chicken wasn't defrosted). I'm managing to keep things together at work, but I think I need a personal assistant at home!

I've had two dreams lately that I have had two little girls - but oddly enough, at a much closer age range that Willow and #2 will be. In one dream, #2 was an exact mini-replica of Willow, pigtails and all, and in the other dream I had two girls with red hair - one curly, one straight. In both dreams, there was about 4 years between the two girls, not the 8.5 that there will be in real life. And I think it is funny that I am dreaming of another little girl, because I feel like I am having a boy - maybe it is just the familiar. Andrew and I will be finding out the baby's sex - even if for the sheer fact that I want to know whether the 8 year old baby clothes packed away in my basement are still serviceable or whether I need to get more stuff!

I guess when it comes to clothes it really is a good idea to know what the newcomer will be so you can be prepared with all the right clothes. Deep down though I would not want to know before hand.

We didn't (and couldn't have) found out with Chunky. We did with Mooch merely because of the whole "God I hope they're the same sex so they can share a room!"
I remember pg brain. I kept forgetting really important crap at work. Thankfully my boss's wife had just popped out a baby so he had just gone thru it with her! LOL!

Pregnancy brain: awful stuff. I could never find my @#$% keys. That's when I took to always popping my sunglasses on top of my head because … well…

I didn't find out beforehand. But I was a headcase and didn't want to even be pregnant, let alone want to know anything else about the baby.

How exciting!!! Both of my girls wanted to know the sex of their babies. It's so nice to know what to plan on. We now have a basement full of both baby boy and baby girl clothes from John, Nathan, and Maggie. The girls don't want to give away anything because you never know when one of them might end up needing them ;) Please let us know as soon as you find out boy/girl!!!!!

I could never the combo to the safe at work, which I probably have gone into 20 times a day for years! I thought Hunter was a girl, I was so WRONG! I personally like surprises, but thats how I feel. I do want to know what you are having!! Jaime

My youngest sister is 6.5 years younger than I am (pretty close to Willow's 8.5) and we are great friends now as adults. As a kid I helped my mom take care of her and was a free babysitter when I got old enough. Whether it's a little sister or brother, I'm sure Willow will be a great big sister too!
