Jamie gave her mama permission to give updates on Baby E. I had to get creative & came up with this...My artist dummy is going to be Jamie's stand in!
Jamie had a good first Dr.s appt and today she's 9 wks along. Baby E is the about the size of grape and all his/her body parts are accounted for. It's fun listening to Brian and Jamie get so excited and emotional upon hearing their baby's heart beat for the first time. It brings me back to my own pregnancies with my three. The baby is due Jan. 21...and Baby E...if you get this message through osmosis, my birthday is Jan 14th...AND it's #50...just sayin!
Speaking of babies...
Mama Monarch came back yesterday for day 3 of egg laying. I was rearranging the patio plants, aphid killing, leaf marking, egg counting, when she stopped to rest...but only for a split second. There seems to be such a sense of urgency to get out as many eggs as she can. I wonder if they know they're time is almost up? I stopped counting after 12 eggs because she just kept laying more. I figured, I'd just go ahead and be surprised otherwise I might become obsessive about it all! Frankie and Austin just roll their eyes at me. Whatever! I've got my eye out looking for her but haven't seen her yet....Yet.
Happy (summer) snapping!
