Can I blame this on hormones too?  Today I’ve totally been overflowing with love for my little boy.  I can’t get enough snuggles or spontaneous hugs from PJ, and I’ve spent the day watching him play or playing with him nearly with tears in my eyes.  It helps that he’s being good, but it’s so much more than that.  It’s as though he’s decided to take today to remind me that all the pain of pregnancy and frustration of having a newborn is totally worth it.  I’ll get past all that again with BabyN and be left with another adorable little man who loves me with all his heart, no matter what.  This is why we put up with so much during and after pregnancy, not the screaming newborn.

Do you know what he said to me as I put him down for a nap a few minutes ago?  “Seeyalilwhy”–or “see you in a little while” to anyone not yet fluent in toddler talk.  I think this counts as his first sentence.  He hears it from me every day when I put him down for a nap, and he is now so happy to take naps that he will say it to me first.  “Thanks, Mommy, for letting me rest during the day.  I know I’ll see you soon after I wake up, and I look forward to it as much as I look forward to sleeping now.”  I’m so lucky.  I can only hope BabyN grows up to be as sweet a boy as his big brother.

In random news, I am down to one nausea pill every two days now.  I hope with each pill that it’s the last one, but that hasn’t happened yet.  At least I can see the end just around the corner.

We’re baby-sitting that sweet little girl again tonight.  I wonder if I can get her to sleep in my arms again.  Ooh, and it’s a chance for me to try out my new baby sling with a real baby!

That vein in my leg came back last night–when my leg swelled while playing computer games again.  Then it went away again this morning.  As long as it doesn’t stick around, I guess…

Nursery pictures tomorrow if I get around to finally downloading the pictures off my camera today.  It’s sort of decorated, but it may give some of you better ideas on how I should finish the decorating.
