Its fun to think back to this time last year. I was just about to my due date with Owen and, although I don't remember it, I was pretty miserable. Its so funny how I forget this part. I look back at the pictures...and think "oh, how exciting that was. I just love having that big belly". Josh quickly slaps me across the face (not really) and tells me "YOU DON'T REMEMBER!". For some reason, he remembers everything about me being pregnant.

Not only am I being reminiscent about this time in my life because of Owens impending birthday...but I am also reminded of these times by the birth of Kim and Chris's baby (they welcomed baby Caleb on Tuesday...a month early weighing 7 lbs 13 ozs!) and the soon to be birth of Nate and Megan's baby!

Its funny how Josh and I can have completely different feelings when we hear of a new baby being born. Josh is happy for them of course...but has that "I'm so glad its not me" feeling. At this point he has no desire to be back there with a laboring wife and then a newborn baby.

But then me on the other hand...I get all sad, wondering if that will ever be me again! Then I am quickly reminded during weeks like this past one..with sick kids and that feeling of being overwhelmed and I start to second guess my thoughts of baby #5. The problem is that 95% of the time I don't feel overwhelmed..and I think "whats another baby?". ha ha ha.

Anyway..this was not supposed to be another one of these posts where I whine about this subject:) I was just gonna post a picture of what I looked like at this time last year.

This picture was taken on March 26, 2007.

I suppose I am glad that instead of looking like that I will be a hip hop class today:)

I know exactly how you feel! My friend Elizabeth is having a baby any day and I get that same feeling!

Congrats to Kim and Chris 1 month early and that big wow!!!

I agree! When you have four, what's one more :) After I had the twins, I would get that feeling too. Now, after Hailey...I KNOW I'm done! I'll wait for another 10 years!!!
