This right here would be my 100th post! Woohoo me! I've been writing here since 2009 - I'm pretty proud I've kept it up even if I have slacked a bit in the last few months.
That part is sad. This summer was so packed full of fun and family. I even have pictures to share - but my computer is dying and won't upload pictures. There's no money for a new computer due to the new house and new landscaping and new water heater that we SURPRISE had to buy when the old one exploded. So just let me break it down. Eliot loves parties, the cabin, all types of water unless it sprays in his face, and his cousins. He's adorable and precocious and just plain precious. He is so much fun and we laugh so much sometimes it hurts. Chris is working hard at work and at home. He takes care of...almost everything sometimes. I need to buy him a beer sometime. I'm finally feeling better after 8 weeks of morning sickness. And I'm so very happy about that.
I keep thinking of this new little one as basically another Eliot. I cannot imagine having a child who is anything but Eliot, just like before Eliot I had no idea what he would look like or who he would be. And although I always doubted parents when they said this, I really really don't care whether it's a girl or a boy. I see pluses and minuses to both, and I will love any baby. I do have to admit to a little baby girl clothes perusing though. Some of that stuff is so freaking cute - although the new baby boy outfits make me squeal (inside) too.
So there it is folks, 100 posts. I will try to get some pictures up on this beast soon. For now I'm going to bask in the accomplishment of those double zeros.
