I hope. Two weeks till due date. All signs so far point to going the full term and then some. Blah.
I want to get back into blogging more often, but as with many other things going on in my life now, my mind just screams, “blah!”
Lily declared Sunday after what was apparently too much general conference in her mind, “No more Jesus!!!” Not so proud mommy moment there…
Neal has been out of town a lot and is currently in Chicago. Luckily we have him for Easter but because he was gone on big family food holidays like Chinese New Year and April Fools Day (yes they are big food days here) my motivation to make anything festive was non-existent. It’s ok since I’m so tired but Aedan was bummed I wasn’t doing another April Fools Party so we bought and made up 10 boxes of raspberry Jell-O to disguise as drinks to take to our branch potluck in between conference sessions on Sunday. It was pretty funny as I put some in cups w/straws but also filled a clear pitcher full and put a stack of empty cups next to it. Not as fun as last year but still got plenty of laughs.
The kids got to participate in a town egg hunt on Saturday. They were very content to come away with a humble pile of eggs (while mom was irked by the crazed parents present who frantically
horded for “helped” their kids to get a insanely massive “good” haul, but I’ll save that gripe for another day) and funny thing, most of Aedan’s eggs had money in it. He was pretty excited about finding dollar after dollar (seriously, you guys should come next time) and after a while of that he starts shouting very excitedly, “MOM!!! MOM!!! Look at this!! I got TWO little chocolate eggs!!!!!” Apparently he is supposed to use the money to buy his own candy?
And major “blah” is that we haven’t settled on a name for this little gal yet. Correction, I don’t think we’ve settled on a first name. And I hate mentioning candidates to people because sometimes their reactions tend to make me rethink my choices whereas if I just say “_____ is the name we’ve chosen” people usually don’t have the guts to say anything negative. So feel free to suggest some here but I don’t think I’ll be listing anything for a bit.
And no, April is not on the list although maybe should be given the song...
Hhhmmm… rereading this, I think I’ve done enough complaining for the day. Can you tell I need a foot rub? :)
