tymothy kate - WELCOME TO THE WORLD!!!!!!! Congratulations to your wonderful Moms who have kept us abreast (aha) of all the goings and have provided so many people with so much joy in doing so - these pictures of you have made my day!
Meagan - Deah . . . WOW! Hello to my WAYWARD husband Scott if he is still out there in Ottawa..speaking of children he should come get his - hee!!
Meag, you should consider writing as a career... what a beautiful story (I''ve still got tears in my eyes)!
Myles and I are working very hard on getting better so we can come visit again and do some helping out!
Take care of yourselves little LeBlanc family!
Congratulations. WOW! That is a good looking baby. She is almost as good looking as me. Well, maybe she is a little better looking but I''m working out (he, he, he...). I hope to see you soon. Take care.
Congratulations to both of you! You done good! She''s beautiful and already looking very content. Both Mommies look like you weathered the storm well. I can''t wait to meet her!!!
Now get some sleep, you''ll both need it!!
One of the things you might want to do on your last day as a childless couple is write a letter to your old life- both as a thank you and as a blessing and releasing sort of thing to help deal with the drastic change that''s about to take place. You might include friends that you won''t see quite as often because babies don''t allow you to be quite so mobile, or places that you won''t frequent as much because it isn''t really "child-friendly." Anything you think that you''ll miss, write it down. But be sure to thank whomever is responsible for the life you''ve led so far, because it has been a great one. It doesn''t have to be all sad- just an acknowledgement that things are going to be different.
I can''t believe it is so soon! Good Luck! Amy (sister) said to roll from side to side on day one (even though it will hurt), and try to walk the second day. It will make it easier than not moving for two days. Love you!
Just decided to check the blog (thanks to Cam for re-sending me the link) and see how things are going. The big day is looming! You two will make such wonderful mothers. It was great to experience the first two trimesters with y''all, and I hope to see the baby on my next visit home from teacher''s college.
Hello sweet mommies to be:
Just had a look at the beautiful photos that Scott took. They truly are lovely. You both have that pregnancy glow about you (sorry Meag). Looks like you are ready for the appearance of my great-niece (it is all about ME, you know). I can hardly wait to see her beautiful face.
Only a few days to go!
Love and kisses from Nik and Lou
I''ve just read your latest entry. I know, I know... making the sacrifices is VERY hard sometimes, but I can tell you as a new parent... it DOES NOT SUCK... the love DUCKY gives to you will more than outweigh the disapointments... and those will seem so minor when she looks up and smiles at you, ''gently'' tugs at your hair as she suckles your breast and truely hugs you (arms tightly around your neck). These moments, and the many more to come make the few sacrifices all VERY worth while!
Forget the money jar - use colorful language NOW while you still can! You have 1 whole month left - that''s 31 days, plus a few extra days into April. Don''t sell yourself short! You''ll then have 18 years (that''s 6570 days!) to keep your language clean - or somewhat clean. :)
You must be talking about my housemate! She never takes her message therapist''s suggestions yet she growls about her. I don''t understand that either. My therapist tells me to soak my feet everynight which I do because I''m not into pain.
Great pictures from the shower! Meagan, you look more excited about the soccer duckies than anything else! Please feel free to phone me, too, at any time of day during the labour or post-delivery. I frequently screen my calls (because I get a lot of wrong numbers, especially from Cook County Jail for some reason!; makes me wonder who had this number before I got it...), so do leave a message. If I''m home and wakeable, I''ll be glad to talk.
Though I''m not close enough to be on call *physically*, I''d very much like to be a phone-a-friend should the need arise. And since I am a student, you know I never sleep so whenever you call is just great. :)
