This pregnancy is rushing by me. Chasing a toddler will do that, I guess. I can't help but feel that my due date is going to sneak up on me and I'll actually end up more freaked out this time than I was with Izzy's birth. I say 'more'... I guess I should just say 'actually'. I remember being surreally calm about labor that time.
A mom on the July '08 board lost her baby this week. The funeral is/was today. I can't imagine having to bury your six month old. Myocarditis took him and they had no advance warning, even though this is not something that just flares up out of the blue. Her son's age just made it impossible for her to know something was coming till it was too late. Anyway. It's heartbreaking and I can't imagine going through it. I hope they're able to get through this and have more kiddos when they're ready.
Isobel is making great strides in listening comprehension and communication. I'm just amazed at how much she really understands about what's going on around her and what's said to her. Her latest 'phrase' is "Go Stars!" We encouraged her to say it at a couple of games and maybe while watching games at home but in the last few days, she's suddenly made it her own. She goes to the fridge and looks at the schedule magnet and yells 'Go Stars!' It's so cute. :)
Funny thing about pregnancy, for me: I have celebrity dreams. When I'm not pregnant, those just don't happen. I dream about anonymous people or my friends but not famous people. Last night's dream was about Johnny Depp.
In other news, Joe the Plumber is going to Israel to be a correspondent for Pajamas Media. When asked how he intends to stay safe, he says that "as a Christian" he believes he's "protected by God". Go, Jon Stewart, for pointing out how this should be said while on his trip. And often.
