Hi, My Name Is Melissa

Remember me?  I used to blog here a couple times a week.

So I thought I would check in, say Hi and let you know I am still alive.

Life has been so busy, but I'm hoping now that the holidays are behind us and life has resumed some sense of normalcy I can get back to this.

What's up with me?

Well, here the latest tidbits:
1. 30 weeks pregnant, size of a horse

2. Signing up Mia for preschool for the Fall and I want to die

3. Trying to coordinate my maternity leave schedule and our sitter schedule for my soon to be family of 4 (that's fun...not so much)

4. The kitchen is finally almost finished.  We still have the backsplash, but we are otherwise complete.

5. Christmas was a success.  Limited family drama (Hubs side, as always, not mine) and a very happy child.

6. Trying to get started on the nursery.

7. Maternity photo sesh and shower dates scheduled.

8. Working on convincing myself that we will survive as a family of four, both working full time and managing to keep our toddler happy and loved.

9. My doctor is on maternity leave officially, actually bed rest, so I am now with a new doctor for the rest of this pregnancy.  I met her for the first time last week.  She's very nice and seems great, so relieved by that.

10. We have picked her name.  I love it!

That's about it.  We are in fully baby prep mode.  I just need more hours in the day and more energy to get everything done.

No matter when she makes her arrival, we are in a much better place than we were with Mia so I will count each and every blessing.  When Mia was born, we had been in our new house 5 days, so I brought a baby home to a house full of boxes.

Hope you all are doing well and that everyone had a great holiday!

See you again soon!  Pinky promise.

I'm new to the blog! I'm party of the @slumie mimosa dream ;)
Looking forward to reading more... and you're going to do just fine with your little family of four! I didn't think I could do it - but it's crazy how it all works out.
