luck be a baby tonight

The past few months I've been on a lucky streak and I like to think it's on account of my little guy in utero. I have won $50 at American Eagle, $100 at Victoria's Secret (I know, what do you do with that at 8 months pregnant?) and a free month of dues at the gym we attend! And Brad won tickets to a jazz concert that we went to last month. I don't think I'll be buying any lotto tickets to press my luck, but I hope the good karma continues after he is out. I told Brad we are going to win with my Spin ID on "Wheel of Fortune."

You can rub my belly for good luck if you want!

But hopefully he won't be in there much longer...7 days 'til my due date! I've painted my toes for the occasion and crossed [most] everything off my to-do list so we are all ready to go. And I just found out this morning that Galla's preschool class is doing a "Fashion Show" for their moms next Friday, May 7, in honor of Mother's Day. They are all going to dress up and do a show and then have punch and cookies. Hello!! That is straight up Galla's alley and I know it will just crush her if I'm not there. I CANNOT be in the hospital at 11:30 am on May 7 (2 days after my due date)!

Come on Baby Boy, mama needs you to come soon!

Lest I slip back into my slacker ways...

I'd better keep posting like I'm s'posta!
Don't be fooled by her cute hair--this little girl is a wild one and she loves to dig in the dirt!
I know this is not the most flattering shot of her face, but Galla has a style all of her own that needs to be showcased! She is very adament about dressing herself and changing a dozen or so times a day. Here she is sporting her 4 pm look: several shirts layered over a dress (that is not just a skirt) with Hello Kitty tights, rainbow socks and her diamond Crocs. And don't forget the excessive accessories! (She actually has those toned down in this picture.)
Here they are playing "cowboy" in the backyard.
Finn also has a unique style that doesn't stray far from shorts. Every day. Rain or shine. Thank goodness it's really starting to warm up. He also likes to throw a Boston accent on things. He would say they are playing in the "backyawd." And when we go somewhere we get in the "ka." I don't know how to spell it the way he says it, but can you hear it? Who knows where he got that?
Here's a classic Easter morning shot. Chocolate bunny--breakfast of champions!

Paisley looks like she's thinking: "Are you sure this is ok, mom?"
Easter afternoon. I love my cute little family and can't wait to add another little boy! Due date countdown: 17 days!
