I am excited, but all of the sudden a little overwhelmed as I realize I am now a mom to three girls, and a lot of what they learn about the type of mothers and wives that they may some day become will depend on the example I set......too stressful to think about.

Girls, Girls, Girls
Foote has his ringtone set to the Beastie Boys hit song Girls Girls Girls. It was funny because his brother turned to him and said, "Girls Girls Girls, Seriously?" He replied "this is my theme song, all I have girls" girls, girls and now........yes another girl. I know this is old news for people who see us on a weekly basis or talk to my mom, but for others, (drum roll please) this is me finally, at six months announcing that we are expecting girl #3. We are due Christmas Day. I am blessed to have easy pregnancies so really the only low part of the pregnancy was that the doctor made me stop running for three months. This was a really hard adjustment to make (runners may understand). So I compensated by becoming a master at spin class. I am attempting to run again, now that I have permission. The truth is, I am just to pregnant. The girls are excited and love to peek into my belly button and tell me that they can see the baby like it is a peep hole. Brooklyn tries to convince me on a daily basis that the baby wants to come out, as if I am holding her prisoner and it's time for her time out to come to an end.
