Oh my, has it been a pitiful week around here! I'm so used to staying busy, both doing activities with the children and working on various "projects" that I have going--usually several at a time! So it's pretty sad to have to admit that the high points of this past week have been crashing for a nap with the littles every afternoon! I don't really feel sick anymore, but oh boy, the exhaustion is sticking around WAY too long!
There has been one other highlight this week...yesterday I finally got in for my ultrasound. It turns out that our seventh little munchkin is a healthy little baby BOY! Surprise, surprise, huh? I have to admit I was hoping Joanna would have a little sister, but Jeremy and the boys are THRILLED to be adding more maleness around here. Because, you know, we have a serious testosterone shortage and it's way too quiet in this household. Ha ha.
On a practical front, now I know which baby clothes to dig out and wash, and can start thinking about how to rearrange beds and such in the boys' rooms to accommodate another. And, of course, I can start sewing little blue blankets and such...as soon as my energy comes back!
