It is the day after thanksgiving and I have a lot of random thoughts running through my mind:
- I am thankful for my wonderful family, great friends, new and old, and being saved by the grace of Christ. I am also thankful for the anti-reflux medicine that allows me to enjoy eating :)
- I think that I have bought the kids way too much for Christmas this year. We try to limit what we buy them, but I went a little crazy buying stuff at an online/ebay type, not a TON of money, but too much stuff. Thankfully their bdays are right after Christmas, so now I can roll over the gifts to bdays and I already have that shopping done!
- I have been telling people that I don't FEEL as huge and pregnant as I did with my first pregnancy...and I truly don't....then I caught a glimpse of myself in a full length mirror yesterday...all optimism is gone :)
- Finally Disney has an African American princess....seriously....I am glad, but that took a LONG LONG TIME
- Thanksgiving is over, which means that either Christmas or NEW BABY are the next big event for our family...yikes.
- I am nervous to ask for breastfeeding items for my shower, because last time I only did it for 2 months....I don't want to be wasteful if it doesn't work out, but am looking forward to trying it again.
- I have totally forgotten how much labor hurts. Crazy how that works.
- We are slowly getting rooms painted in our house and curtains hung. The painting has stalled out until December 1st as the paint mixing machine at self-help is out for repairs. I painted the baby's room two different shades of blue I got from a friend, but neither looked good, so I have to wait a few more days to get the exact shade I want.

I feel like I need SO MUCH more information about this post. Please share the online/ebay type store and what you got!

I definitely don't think you are being wasteful AT ALL because you want to take a second crack at breastfeeding. Anyways, you are the person most likely to find a home for anything you might not end up using. Is there anything I can send you?

Ah, it is like ebay, but for people who live here on not something you would find handy! We aren't allowed to have garage sales/yard sales (that I know of) and so this is a great way to sell/buy used stuff and people from all of the bases on island use it. I got a fisher price doll house with the people and accessories for 8-10 dollars, a fisher price garage car ramp thingy for 10, a huge lot of 2t (planning for way in the future) boys clothes for 12, diaper genie for 8, and the best deal, an enormous GeoTrax set with trains, buildings, tracks (must have cost at least 300 new) for 35 dollars!!!!! Loving me some bargains!

Thanks for the bfeeding support...I would much rather try again and fail than not try at all....! I hope it works though!

So good to see you blogging again! Oh, I know all about the second time around with breast feeding.... Tish only could for a few months and so I was nervous with Jr. However, I knew a lot more the second time around and was much better prepared for asking for help/info from drs, pharmacists, and nurses for all sorts of things. I hope it works out for you. It was so nice to be able to have that time with my son and saved me thousands on formula!!! Miss you tons and will be praying for you all!

Give your kiddos a big hug for me and tell your hubby hi as well:)
