WOW!

The support from everyone has just been amazing. Thank you SO MUCH!!!! It means a lot to me and my family!

Well, baby drama aside (I'm praying for 30 weeks of no-drama for the rest of this pregnancy) I'm now focusing on Maggie and getting her ready for school. This time next week, she's going to be in her Kindergarten class! I really don't know where the time went. It seems like yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital and she was so tiny. Now, she plays soccer, tells me what she wants to wear, has her first "big girl" tooth coming in and she's anxiously awaiting the arrival of her sibling.

Yesterday, I went to her soccer practice to help Scott out. He is the most patient man I know. How he can coach 5 year-olds is beyond me. He has one that NEVER wants to do anything. He sits when they're supposed to run, he gets upset if he doesn't score a goal, etc. I don't have patience for that but Scott does. He's a great coach. Anyway, Maggie was practicing and whenever they had a break, she'd run up and kiss my belly. She's such a sweet little girl. I just hope she still likes the baby when it's here and the attention is focused on it for a while. I'm sure she will. She seems to be taking on the "little mommy" role already. Yesterday, she had a copy of the Babies R Us flyer that came in the mail. I was going to throw it away but she looks it over like she's shopping for the best stuff. She cracks me up.

I promise to post pictures from vacation soon. I finally picked them up from Costco. LOVE that place!

Brigid's off to kindergarten in less than 3 weeks, and she is far more ready for it than I am!! I hope the rest of your pregnancy is totally *boring* - you've already had your excitement for the next few months!!!

I am so glad to hear things are okay! I still get teared up when I think about the day you found out. :)

My baby boy started K just two weeks ago. I cried the first day and every day since has been a party! LOL!!

If Maggie talks to your belly a lot over the next months, the baby will respond right after birth to her voice. It's the funnest thing to watch a new baby perk up when the sibling comes into the room. One of those amazing things about newborns. You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers!

Good luck with all the back to school stuff. SO glad to hear everything is ok with the pregnancy, and I am sending you totally boring and uneventful pregnancy vibes for the rest of your pregnancy! You've had more than enough of your share! :)

Maggie will be such an asset when Chester arrives. I was told by many (before my 2) that having an older daughter means she'll be like a little mommy when baby arrives. Can't say this is true for all instances but it was for us. Samantha was great with her little bro! Always wanting to help with things, whatever she could. Too bad that didn't last! LOL. Actually, she's a pretty cool big sis.
