04/24/12 On a really cute note: After I cleaned up the baby's bouncy seat and swing, Libby played "Mommy" with her baby dolls and stuffed animals testing out the seat and swing.  She would put them in the straps and then cover them with a "blanket" (she uses kitchen towels for blankets because she can reach them in the kitchen drawer).  Then she would come over to Bill and I who were sitting quietly watching the Twins game on TV and tell us to "be quiet, baby sleeping".  She is such a good little Mommy to her babies.  Hopefully she will feel similar about the new baby!

04/27/12 I just can't seem to be able to keep up with basic tasks anymore.  Last night after work I went home and went straight to bed at 5:30 PM.  Just so exhausted.  I don't think I am going to be able to complete my baby task list prior to this kid's arrival.  I may just wish to re-evaluate what is the most important few things and complete them and forget the rest...
