1) I am sure this will be #1 on every body's list, or at least every body's mental list, but I am keeping Jen in my thoughts and prayers this weekend. I cannot imagine dealing with anything in addition to just being pregnant + having 5 other kids-- definitely offering up diaper changes and screaming toddlers and praying for her.
2) Did you see Grace's "Birth Story Link-Up"? It is the best thing ever for the lover of birth stories, which I do happen to be. It's like a snack platter of birth stories-- a smorgasbord, if you will. Oh, you don't want to use food comparisons when talking about birth? Why ever not? Head over and pick out a birth story like your getting something from a vending machine. Too much? I will stop.
3) I am writing these a tad early since we are having a veritable deluge of company this weekend, and after the detox from family post-Christmas break, I am just a wee bit excited. Lucy will get to see her closest cousin in age, little Charlie, and we will attempt to take a Charlie Brown-esque photo of the 2 wee ones. Only if I can scrounge up a little blue dress for little Lucy and find our stuffed snoopy, we'll see and so will you if it happens.

4) In honor of the fam-a-lam visiting and then the ND championship game on Monday, I will be making a few favorite recipes

6 )I just weighed Lucy and our scale just said she is already 15 pounds. Which means that when we eventually kick her out of our room (soon, I hope) she will be too fat to go in the bassinet. If she wasn't so cute I would reprimand her for her gluttonous ways, but alas I cannot:

My favorite part is when he says "Do you want to know what it's like having 4 kids. Just imagine you're drowning... and someone hands you a baby"
Head over for some more Friday fun.
