one. though i often get called this accidently by one of my kids at least once a day.

3. Girl? Boy? Both?
a boy.

4. Did you know what you were having?
no. though i wanted to know so badly! dr wouldn’t do an ultrasound though unless it was a medical emergency. but everyone told me i was having a girl, just by the characteristics i was displaying.

5. How old were you when you became a Mom?

whenever he’s sick.

14. Is your child named after anyone?
he has his father’s name as his middle name.

15. How did you come up with their name(s)?
i had to come up with a name quickly because i had only picked out girl’s names. well, no, i did have 3 boy’s names that i did like, but because i didn’t spend 9 months getting used to that idea, it took a while for me to choose which one would be the best fit. but being so indecisive, i ended up having to hastily choose one because i was just SO ready to go home by then (had an extended stay in the hospital due to the surgery and elevated temperatures). sometimes i wonder how it would’ve been different if i had chosen any of the other 2 names i liked.

i was gone 7 days when i went to texas for a reading conference. that was hard.

19. Bedtime routine?
he’s so much more independent right now. he goes around and checks to make sure the house is secure. then he comes in for a hug and a kiss, and puts himself to bed, turning off all the lights in the house (even if i’m still doing my work!!!) in the process.

gosh. um. it might’ve been up.

everything. 😛

being loved.

he has never napped. only when he is sick will he sleep more than his regular bed time sleep, and usually then, i’m just worried sick about him.

26. Where is your child now?
on his bed, reading 2 books. yes, two. i have raised a nerd.

27. Favorite place to buy maternity clothes?
