Are you sick of soakers yet???

I’m so glad this baby is coming out relatively soon. Both boys were early, at 38 and 39 weeks. I’m trying not to assume that this one will be early too, but oh how I would appreciate it if baby shows up before week 40! I’m so wiped out with this one. Tired, swollen, and worn out! I feel like my feet are going to explode. I have a hopeful theory though:

Little Man: Super easy pregnancy, I bounced right through it. Little Man now? We’ll say he’s spirited, creative, spunky, but not easy! 🙂 As one friend at playgroup said today (after I told her the story of how he played a “joke” yesterday that involved a giant jar of raisins being thrown all over the room) “I’m not sure what I’d do if my boys did stuff like that all the time.” Heh…..yeah.

Knittykid: Kind of easy pregnancy. More tiring, a bit of bed rest, but not too bad. And now, for the most part? Kind of an easy kid. He’s definitely more laid back than his big brother, that’s for sure, although he’s got his moments, and he’s BUSY.

Baby #3: Wearing me out, and just 35 weeks! So I’m hoping, maybe that means super easy kid? The kid who likes to sit and color all afternoon long? Who likes to help Mama clean up? (Do these children exist?)

Of course, I’m assuming that we’re getting another spunky little boy to join this family (or maybe a spunky girl?) but it’s funny to think about the possibility of a quiet, easy going little kid. I’m not sure I’d know what to do. I’m pretty used to the chaos by now, and crazily I think I prefer it a bit!

Anyway, enough of that theory. I’m just about finished up with soakers for now. A couple more to finish up, but here’s the latest showcase:
