life is settling into a nice routine of days...we get up and play a little (currently Joe likes to play tag with the dog) and make some breakfast. Joe is becoming a little helper- cracking eggs, telling me the pan is "ha" (or hot in Joe-speak) and throwing cans and packaging into the recyling. Its hard to remember what he was like when he was tiny. We are getting so fogetful of the tiny stage that we are very much thinking of the next baby.
But we have a deadline- a friend is getting married in may and I am slated to be the matron of honor; and I would like to stay at my current job next fall. SOOO if there is no baby in the belly by the end of october we are abandoning the thoughts of a next child for the time being.
I'm ok with this, like I said life is taking on a routine that I like, sure it tires me out and I feel like I've been beaten with a stick some days but I like the way things are now. And they can only get better. There are so many exciting things to be done this year- new babies are on the way from a few cousins, my sister is knee deep in the adoption process, new words are being learned everyday, and I get to watch 15 3 year olds experience and navigate their way through their first year of school. Today a child (who wasn't mine) told me he loved me.
For now that is enough.
