Dear Baby Boy J,

A few things...

Can you please move into the downstairs apartment so that I have a shot at catching my breath? Every time the phone rings, the caller remarks "did I catch you exercising?" and I have to explain that no, I'm just walking around my house trying to breath like a normal person and I didn't just finish a marathon. I could really use your help.

Also, if it's not too much trouble, could you kindly stop kicking my stomach every time an ounce of food enters it? Food is great going down. Not so much with the coming up. Thanks.

Finally, could you schedule your hiccups to occur sometime during normal business hours rather than when the office is closed? I could use a little sleep.

Oh, and I love you.

Yours,
The Management

I find it amazing how little oxegen you can feel like your getting and actually still manage not to pass out. Good luck with the sleep, I always felt like as soon as the baby started to move sleep was something I remember hearing about but not actually participating in.

You never sound out of breath to me... good luck with the hiccups!

If it was just that easy Karen. So funny. Let everyone know if it works. CEO report~ I will have Dandee make the memo baby notes. At least we'll know they will be cute.

Thanks for letting me laugh out loud! I love it! Sorry for commenting the other day on the phone about the "out of breath" thing! Pregnancy....what we do for these spirits to gain a body! We all need extra gold stars for just doing it!

So funny. Aw, the joys of pregnancy.

The babies always like to play around when you finally get relaxed. Wait, they do that after their born too. It never ends....

And you just made me feel better about my crying baby...I bet he'll move in the "downstairs apartment" soon!

So sorry to hear about all your pregnancy woes. Sounds like you have an active fella in the upstairs apartment.

I just wanted to say that I think you always look so good. I also wanted to tell you that you don't look that pregnant. You look good pragnant. You don't look like you have gained everywhere like some of us. I know this is from a few post ago about how you look and how you looked when you went out for your morning walk. Anyway I just thought I would let you know. Also I do hate the hiccups in the middle of the night. Carter had them alot.

This note you will have to keep for when he is fifteen and then you can hold it over his head for any and everything. "Look at what I went through for you. . ."
