Who Cares About Baby Showers, Bring on the Twilight!

Today after school is Baby Shower #1 for the week. I am as "ready" as I can be. I'm hoping for the best....and knowing that it is after school, so I can truly only stay an hour and a half before I have to leave to pick up Emma. And I'm looking forward to meeting the wife of my co-worker who has only been in the U.S. for 3 weeks after finally getting her Visa approved to move here from the Philippines.

Saturday is shower #2. It might be a little more tricky. The PG gal and her hubby are our only "couple" friends left in Jacksonville. They were WONDERFUL about inviting us over when I was newly PG with Emma and she was due to have their first child (K's bday is in May and Em's in Sept.) We talked baby products. She showed me an amazing nightgown with slits for breastfeeding, we talked "new parent" stuff. It was great. I am happy for them to have Kid #2. I am just longing for Kid #2 of my own....so it makes happiness about baby stuff difficult sometimes. We shall see how things go. I think I can put on my game face in the name of friendship and make it through.

But I just heard some REALLY SUPER FANTASTIC NEWS! DH texted me to say that on the cover of "USA Today" there is an article about a new Stephenie Meyer novella that will be released on June 5th! I am STOKED! My fellow Twilight fans can click this link to read the article yourselves.

Dreaming of Edward is helping my baby longings vanish for a little while....

{{{Hugs}}} and thinking of you. Sadly, Edward does NOTHING for my baby lust.

Wow, interesting about that book! I may have to check it out.

Wishing you lots of strength for the baby showers this week. ((hugs))

I will be thinking of you today and again this weekend, though I don't really have to . . . you are an amazingly kind and gracious woman, and the fact that you are attending these showers speaks volumes for what an awesome individual you are.

I hope you're feeling well today. Sending you SO much love!

OOH I saw that too. If you go to her webpage: www.stepheniemeyer.com she mentions that she will be releasing it for free, online view in june-july but if people want to buy it, they can do that, too. Nothing to do with lovely Edward though, so I may not be able to read it!

I'm not a Twilight fan but I have various other pursuits that distract me from TTC ;)
But I definitely hope you manage to get through the showers OK. I understand the bump envy and hope the showers are not too painful.
Sorry for the lack of comments lately-can I blame my crazy life? But I saw you on my traffic tracker and was like "whoops, better stop by!!"
