Am I just a cynic...or am I just sick of being pregnant?

SO.....I was doing some homework tonight and after doing this transcription, I think I want to barf. I guess I am just ridiculously grouchy and I'm just in a terrible mood....for the last couple of weeks, but really! Skip to the end, the rest is boring! "for referring this delightful gentleman to us"? This just oozes brown-nosing to me. ARG! The fake overly politeness just kills me! Wow, I really do sound like a cynic!

*Please note, I will probably return to my normal, somewhat cheerful self in about 8 weeks time. Until then......

New baby round 2

This morning we got a phone call from Kaye's brother Kurt. His wife Jen had her baby this morning! I'm very excited about it and will post a pic as soon as a get one. BUT, I just wanted to point out an injustice.

Jen woke up at approximately 12:40 (I think...if I get any of this wrong, I'll fix it later) in labour. She went to the hospital about a hour later, I believe, and delivered a healthy baby GIRL at 3:09. Does that seem fair to anyone at all???

Jen labour with 3rd child - all of about 2.5 hours.
Kristen labour with 3rd child - 12 hours.

She was obviously born to have babies! Either way, I'm super excited that I have a new niece and I'm glad to know that everything went well....even if it was a girl and she came so easily.

Oh, if anyone is interested, her name is Chloe Kristina Kronebusch.

I'm just going to sit and wait for my BOY to come now.

She just melts my heart!

There's nothing like having a little baby come into your family that you can love and snuggle....and give back when they cry!'s such a different feeling.

Just look at that squishy face!! She is just so cute it hurts to look at her!

The little boys just love Harper.
