Stay at home Mommy!

I am officially a stay-at-home mom! I am finished with school and am ready to tackle the millions of projects I have in mind for the summer before the baby comes. I wish my body could keep up. :) The baby's room has bedding and a dresser. She has a bookshelf, drapery hardware and paint ready to be used. I still need to find curtains but I want something simple so it shouldn't be too hard.

Leah said the cutest thing the other day. She was patting my belly and she said "Baby Erin needs her mommy." I said I know and she said "Her mommy is at work." I said "No, I am her mommy just like I am your mommy. Can you share your mommy?" She threw herself on the ground and said "NOOOOOOOOO!" and started to fuss. This may be an issue...

I just watched an episode of A Baby Story and almost lost it. The woman has a daughter and had another one. I watched the three of them snuggle after the birth and realized that I will be there soon. How amazing is that???

Is Erin the new baby's name?

I'm sure Leah will go through some form of a jealousy phase. Hopefully, it won't be too bad. Kellynn was great with Ella for the first month or two. Then the newness wore off and the jealousy set in. She now is much better.

AWE! What a cute story! I'm sure she'll be a bit jealous, but Leah's going to be such a great big sister!

Leah is going to be an amazing big sister. Jordana loved Connor and always looked after him. Now she tells me she "hates his guts" and wishes she "never had a brother". AHHHHHHHH - love in sibling heaven. LOL

I love the snuggle time. I'm sure Leah will adjust. She'll probably be the best little helper.

Congrats on being an official stay at home mommy!
