I have Cousin Callie for part of the day and Maggie & Ellie are loving it! So far, we've had pancakes, played My Little P.onies and A.merican Idol. We've looked at pictures from our old house and of Ellie's birth. And I've managed to clean off our 2GB memory card, move 400 pictures to disks and make plans with my mommy friend K to visit Ms. A in the hospital tomorrow. This having three girls thing is crazy! There are ponies and B.arbies and girls squealing every single time I turn around!

I can't wait to get my hands on Ms. A's new baby girl tomorrow! Ms. A and I were trying to get pregnant at the same time. She was the first person that I told (in person over the phone) and she was just as happy as I was! My only regret about getting pregnant with Ellie is that A wasn't pregnant too. She went through several rounds of C.lomid before finally finding out that she was expecting. I have prayed for this baby so much. A has a septated uterus and has had numerous miscarriages in the past and having her little boy C (also known as Maggie's future husband) was such a miracle. She had a difficult pregnancy that involved weeks of bed rest and then he was born early and not in good health. After a long stay in the NICU and lots of therapy, he's a rough and tumble three year old! This pregnancy has not been uneventful, but I'm praying for a normal c-section delivery tomorrow. K and I are beyond excited to see each other, our friend A and "our" new baby.

Of course, my main reason for going to Sanford tomorrow is my midwife appointment with Peg. I admit, I'm excited to see her. It's funny how you spend all those weeks of your pregnancy going to the doctor and then you have the baby and you no longer have to go. Peg saved The Muffin's life and I would have definitely had a c-section with Ellie if she hadn't been the attending midwife. She knew that I was adamant about trying everything possible to have a VBAC and she made sure that the doctor gave me every chance.
And in other news...Big Daddy and I are sure that we aren't ready for baby number three, but we're also sure that we can't rule out a baby number three. When/how do you really know that you're finished having babies??? If you know the answer please tell me. Looking at this little baby-body makes me think that three wouldn't be enough!

For now, I'm getting my baby fix by working in the nursery at church. Maybe one day I'll figure out if I want 2 or am happy with just 1 but right now, I have no idea!!

When I was a little girl I wanted 3 babies. After I had Alan I only wanted 1, until Alan was about 1.5, then I desperately wanted 2. After maxton I was definitely satisfied with 2, but delayed on making the permanent "fix". Boy, am I glad I waited...Joshua most definitely completes our family and we made that decision permanent when he was 4 weeks old!! You will know what is right for your family when the time is right!!

I don't think anyone decides on #3 - I think #3 decides on you! Everyone I know has gotten #3 as a "bonus"!
