- I leave my house whenever I want. Even during nap time.
- I sleep in.
- I eat what I want.
- I go shopping for as long as my back will allow.
- I miss my baby. Waaah.
- I miss my husband.
- I missed Magical's wedding.
- I will miss Baby J's blessing.
- I haven't even seen Baby J in real life yet. She is already a month old!
That said, I am sooooo happy my husband and daughter will be home tomorrow evening! When Baby E gets on the phone and says, "Mama!" in her adorable little voice, I can barely handle it. I want to hug her and snuggle her until she protests and pulls away.
Yesterday I went shopping and found some fabulous stuff at Gap and Banana. Including a pair of maternity jeans that actually make me feel attractive. Worth every penny! I also bought a few (non-maternity) tops for spring. I am excited for it to not be winter anymore and me to not be pregnant anymore.

Back at Thanksgiving, while wandering a mall with Dh's brother Longroper, we found a rack of pajamas on sale at The Children's Place. We had the brilliant idea to get one each in Baby E's size, and for future Baby J (who was born at the end of January). Babies E & J met for the first time this weekend, so Dh and Longroper arranged the photo shoot. Knowing my need for a Baby E fix, they emailed me a couple of pictures:
J makes E look so big!
Hopefully Baby E will be this gentle with her baby brother.
Baby E: I'm not too sure about this little person!
Baby J: Wow! The world is so cool!
*Sorry I can't find the recipe online. Maybe it's too new to be up on the website. It came from either the February or March 2008 Everyday Food magazine. Sooooo yummy. 1/3 C tofu, 1/2 C pomegranate juice, 1 C frozen berries, 2 tsp honey, and a couple of ice cubes in your blender.
