I was thinking about that lastnight. Right now it's DH, myself and our poodle. I can imagine what it's going to be like with her here. There's no more "just running to the store", now we have to pack like we're going on vacation (diaper bags, strollers, toys, etc) just to buy groceries...lol. There's no more sitting with my feet soaking while reading a magazine just because it's the weekend and I'm bored. There's no more "I'm bored" either... but I'll grow those extra pair of hands and learn to live on 25 second naps and realize that shaving my legs and washing my hair in the same shower is a thing of the past... I'm actually looking forward to it. Hubby and I are huge kids at heart and I think we're more excited about having a playmate then anything... for a few years at least until puberty, independance and boys get in the way...lol

Me time? What's that?!

Our big changes will be more with DD, I think. I'm totally ready for the newborn phase again (no sleep, cluster feedings, all that) but I'm really nervous about how DD will react and what it will do to our VERY close relationship. That is going to be a HUGE change! I'm not sure I'm ready for that... but she seems REALLY excited, so I hope it doesn't fade, and I will really have to do everything in my power to give her all my attention when I can.

No! I am terrified of how I will handle 3 kids under 3. I know it will be fine though
Thank You tasha_mae for my beautiful siggy!

YES!! I have come to terms (I think as best I can so far) with the changes that are going to happen! I actually get annoyed when people laugh at me and say stuff like "Get ready for not getting any sleep" or "Just wait until baby comes....". Annoying. I was a college student only a few months ago, I know what its like to have no sleep
The only thing that I am kind of sad about is the fact that it won't be JUST me and DH anymore... but the miracle thats coming is SO worth it

We're mentally preparing for these changes -- we know they're coming and we know that they'll be big. I know that the first month is going to be crazy -- how crazy, I don't know, but I know life is going to definitely change.

I know it sounds silly, but I'm worried about our dogs. We've already started to implement some changes for them and I feel bad about those (the Yorkie already can't come upstairs, the Westie no longer sleeps on our bed, all the baby stuff is down here for them to smell). I hope they can adjust to the big change.
Thank you JAIDYNSMUM for my adorable new siggy!

With already having 2 kiddos, I don't foresee any big changes happening.

I was really worried about what life with 2 was going to be like. No more "taking turns". It will be more of a divide and conquer kind of game plan. I have discussed many times with John how I don't want it always to be me with the baby and him with Evan. I know it will end up that way at times because I am feeding the baby and can't really do anything else while I am doing that. But those precious in between times, I want to make sure I am some QT with my older little man.
Thank you Alethia for my awesome siggy!

Eeek...I don't know, Anna! To be honest, I have no idea what is going to happen in September. People keep asking me about plans for second semester, and I just keep saying that I have no idea...I have to see what happens in September!

Changes? What are you talking about? Oh.... right I'm pregnant and there will be a baby at the end of the pregnancy! Yeah,I'm still in the "OMG I'm pregnant,really" stage.

I have no routine now at all so I'm hoping that baby and I do settle into a nice routine once he's here. Right now I spend way to much time on the net and playing YoVille and FarmVille. I don't mind missing out on that at all. I look forward to laying in bed with my son and looking at him and running my hands through his hair and making him smile and coo.

Yes and No. Funny enough, yes I know I have 4 children, but with Anja being 5, I do have more freedom. I can run to the store alone, go out for lunch or dinner with my girl friends, or out for tea. We can go for long drives with little scheduled stops, drive thru's work.
All that will change. I know exactly how it will be and I love it, however it will change and I'm excited but not in a hurry either.
