Birds and Bees ... and Nets?

So this morning Abby Kate and I were sitting at the table eating our breakfast. Our conversation:

AK: Can I say hi to baby, Mommy?

Me: Sure (thinking she was talking about her doll baby sitting on the table, I held it out to her)

AK: No, Mommy... I say hi to baby in your belly.

Me: Oh, well OK (surprised at her request). Sure you can! (I get up and let her touch and hug my belly) That's such a sweet girl, Abby Kate. You're a good big sister.

AK: Can I hold the baby, Mommy?

Me: Well, you can't hold it right now, but when the baby comes out, then you can.

AK: When the baby falls out?

Me: Um, right. But we'll catch the baby. It won't fall.

AK: Baby will fall out? And then we'll catch baby? We will catch baby with a net? (her face as serious as can be)

Me: Uhhh... OK, sure. With a net. :)

Oh the humorous conversations you will have regarding this topic in the weeks and months to come!!! That is so sweet!

Hannah resolved that we push babies out of our belly buttons (and is still convinced of this)-- that's just fine with me!!!

Hahaha! Abby Kate is so cute! I really do wish the baby just fell out...I could do without all that pushing haha

And wouldn't a net be so much easier than an epidural?

I'm still bummed that we missed the par-tay!

Very sweet conversation. I'm excited for you to see AK really hold her new brother or sister for the first time. I cried happy tears when Philip came to the hospital and met Braewyn. It's indescribable!!!

We finally got a new computer and I feel like I can get back in touch with the world!! AK is so cute and the conversations just get better and better. Caden told me the other day he was going to school and kissing a girl ): Her name is Holly and it is Josh Chalfant's daughter. Caden is not even 3, but he hasn't actually done it yet. I think he says it now to get a reaction out of me. Take Care..Cristy
