Our Crazy Lives...

Daycare, pregnancy, moving and back to school!!!

Well, the school year has started and except for being very tired, it's off to a great start! Well, Jaxon has been at the new daycare for two weeks and is slowly becoming accustomed it it. He still cries when I drop him off (but usually I hear him stop before I leave the building) and he screams "MAMA, MAMA!" when I come to pick him up. But, I do think he's getting better. They had a music presentation Friday and they said he LOVED it! Of course, later it'll cost if I want to keep him in the music program, but he loves "mu-gick!" so I may try it out. He started a week before the 3 year olds moved up, and he seems better now that there are kids his age in class. He said "Bye, friends!" when we left which made me feel better too. He has already gotten a cold though- one of the daycare drawbacks I guess.

I'm feeling pretty good still which is good for 8 months along! I'm definitely carrying this baby differently though... it's funny how each pregnancy can be so different. Here's hoping the labor and delivery goes as well with Marley as it did with Jaxon! I still don't feel like I'm going to have a baby (and it's only 40 days until my EDD!) I'm not sure if it's just because I'm too busy to really think about it, but I don't feel anywhere near as prepared as I did when I was pregnant with Jax. I've not gone to birthing class or done up her nursery either, so I'm sure that has something to do with it. I know the feeling will change when Marley arrives- ready or not, she'll be here soon!

We met with our realtor yesterday and she suggested moving a few things and gave us a little bit of work to do before she puts it on MLS, but no surprises- they were all things we'd talked about doing anyway. Our listing will be up next weekend! We're the only house in our range in the neighborhood too- every other seller is either much smaller/cheaper or larger/higher priced. Keep your fingers crossed for us that the lack of competition helps us sell quickly!

The school year is off to a great start, but I'm definitely tired. My class seems to be running pretty smoothly with the new program and I'm really enjoying it so far. I hope all goes well when I'm home on leave. I plan on working until the week before I'm due and going back to work the first full week of December. I may try to get my mom to come watch the baby for those two weeks in December and hopefully will have a sitter lined up for January.

We'll keep you posted! S :)
