For some reason I had it in my head that I was doing a great job blogging. And then I realized I only blogged three times this month. I think I write lots of posts in my head and THINK I blogged them but I really didn't. Those were some great posts, too. I wondered why no one commented...

I finally got myself a planner for 2008. We're two months in and I'm finally ready for the new year (yeah, it's gonna be rough). I've filled it in with my work schedule, appointments, school calendar events, church calendar events...and I've still managed to double-book myself- TWICE. And I say that like I have this super active social life. I don't. I just remember in my head that Friday we are going out with so-and-so and February 29 we have a church thing- not realizing FRIDAY and FEB. 29 are the SAME DAY. If I have anymore pregnancies I will have no more brain cells left. I had a teacher in high school once say that babies suck all the vitamins out of you leaving you with mousy hair and pasty skin and this empty look in your eyes- I think she was trying to scare me into staying away from boys but I do agree I lose brain cells. But my planner is very pretty and compact and works for me! When I remember to write in it. Actually, I get really attached to my planner and can't go anywhere without it. I'm one of those people who will lose their minds if I lose my planner.

But on a much happier note I've purchased two adorable little girl dresses and I've been given the cutest little pink polka dot swimsuit. It's tiny! Having a "baby" in size 5 diapers and then pulling out the newborn stuff makes Henry look huge. Huge. I can't wait until I get the newborn diapers. I love how they look like toy diapers for a baby doll. And I can't wait to hold that wrinkly, snuggly little baby! I've got a long wait...being buried in all this snow makes July 4 seem a long ways away.

Tracy - great job on your new header! Oh, I'm enjoying the baby snuggles right now - I know it won't last long enough! I hope time will pass quickly for you as you wait for your little one! Yeah for pink and polka dots!

Tracy,

I like the photo in your header. I was so absent-minded right after our son was born. One of the worst things was making a grilled cheese, but forgetting it on the stove and going off to do something else. Nathan was sleeping right next to the kitchen when the fire alarm started blaring. Oops!

I just got a planner for 2008, too! Don't feel bad. I'm still trying to figure out how to use a planner and remember to look at it and write in it.

I have relied so much on my memory that I've hardly ever used a planner before, but I'm tired of forgetting things...and I don't even have the excuse of being pregnant! :-)
