To further prove how excited I am, I read several books to the baby today (they start to remember things around week 23!) and I read Love You Forever which was a mistake because I used to read that to Lydia when she was a baby and it made me cry like a big silly girl. Me crying made Aly cry and then Anna came in and thought something terrible had happened, so she started crying. Lydia entered the room, and being the wonderful big sister she is, she accused us of 'being mean' to Anna. We had to explain that it wasn't sad crying, it was happy crying. And then Caleb entered and informed us all that he's going to take 'ninja lessons like Pierre does'. I took him with me to see the tournament because I knew he'd like it, and so he's going to sign up for some karate classes next week. Not so much ninja classes, however. As much fun as it sounds to have a son that's a professional assassin, it's not very practical.
Ahem, anyway. Anna has her ballet, Lydia has her horses, Caleb has his karate and Baby has making Mummy and Daddy cry. I think that sounds wonderful!
Also, Tasha, Liz and Emma say that if you want to stay with them and Hope when Aly and I are in Ireland, they'd love to have you. They'll understand if you stay with Renee instead. The kids are going to stay with Aly's parents. I didn't think you'd want to be alone, though you're welcome to do that too. It's up to you, Sweetheart.
