My headaches have subsided and for that I am extremely grateful. Things are slowly coming together. A load of laundry for baby is done, so s/he will have at least a couple of options other than blankets. The car seat has been located, though not installed in the car. The taxes are almost done, with maybe an hour or two of fine tuning this weekend. The only pressing issue continues to be the piles on my desk at work. I've come to the realization that there are just going to be some things I have to pass off to others.
Courtney and the Squibs, but if you don't, you MUST visit her blog. She is the inspiration behind many of the half finished projects I have for Claire all over the house. But more than that, she inspires me. Her post Getting to Integral is what I want for Claire. Claire has jobs where she is integral (she is the drawer closer in the kitchen, and the best trash-thrower-awayer ever), but I've realized this needs to be a continual and evolving process, for both our kids.
I'm still not sure on the boy name, just as I wasn't with Claire. Makes me kind of hope for a girl. At least the kid will have a name!
