Congrats Monkey! I can see how cute she is already! Rub that belly hello for me! It so doesn't feel that long ago to me, but my little Bella is 5 1/4! I am one of those crazy people who really enjoyed being pregnant. Helped that the first time, during the first tri when I was feeling crappy most of the time, I'd be lounging on the couch and my husband would walk into the room, look at me and say, "Wow - you're pregnant....we're going to have a baby....wow!" Made it easier to get through the rough patches. I'd guess that even with your more complete than most people's knowledge of what's going on, it's still an awe-inspiring thing to be pregnant. Enjoy it!
Bella's been enjoying 'Dr. Suess week' at school. Monday, for 'Green Eggs and Ham Day', she wore green (got her into a 'girly' green shirt she's been avoiding all winter); Tuesday for 'Cat in the Hat Day', she was supposed to wear a silly hat, but just wanted to wear her Yankees hat (that we couldn't find), but was happy with a Rochester Red Wings hat (our AAA baseball team); Wednesday was 'Wacky Wednesday' - dress silly: so she wore one of her usual 'boy' shirts, with a blue skirt, mismatched sneakers (apparently a popular idea), and sock on her feet. Apparently her teacher, who is usually well-coifed and dresses very professionally, was in sweats and had her hair in about 10 ponytails. I'm hoping someone got a picture of that for the class website! Today is 'Fox in Socks Day' - she just wore one white sock and one orange sock as we didn't have any silly socks. Should have asked my mom - she has some 'holiday-themed' socks... Finally, Friday has a sleep theme (can't remember the book titles), so she'll be going to school in jammies and bringing her Bun-bun. she's VERY excited about that!
Pumpkin just had a good Feb break week at Zoo camp - this is the last year he'll be able to go for these mid-year breaks. We counted and figured it was his 8th week of zoo camp. It apparently doesn't get old for him even when he has duplicates of various crafts now. The April break was opened up to Kindergartners (they'll have two age-group classes), so Bella will get her first Zoo Camp experience. She keeps vasillating between being excited about it and wanting to go to the daycare instead...we'll see how that goes.
One of these days I'll get a couple of pictures up here. But now, I should really get back to work!
