And the countdown begins...

Spent the morning bookmarking all of the funniest blogs in my Kindle to get ready for the hospital.  I didn't realize that I have about 150 blogs bookmarked on my laptop, most I don't even know why I saved them in the first place, so this was no small feet.  I think this is my way of nesting, which is making Rick really nervous, but I'm on week 27 (tomorrow) and that's when Gavin decided to arrive.  I have my bag packed (which, incidentally, was still packed from last summer when Gavin was born), my Kindle is loaded up, and the nearest route is mapped out, with a pit stop at McDonald's for my last meal until they let me eat again.

Did I mention that we're on baby FIVE?

Isaac Aaron Robin Darcy, hoping he'll be my redheaded Mexican baby!  I've been slacking in my posting, but Gavin is growing to be a monster baby.

He is right on target for where he needs to be for the average 7 month old (his adjusted age).  He and Aidan are getting along great, if you don't count the chunk of Aidan's hair that Gavin pulled out.  It did make a nice lock for the baby book!

Gary and Benny are having fun with the babies.

On top of it all, we're getting ready to move at the end of June!  When I say we, I mean everyone else.  I have a mental note of what the boys (including Rick) have to go through before moving day, it's a tough job being in charge.  We will have movers do the packing and moving and some awesome friends who are volunteering to help unpack.   OB is hoping Isaac will make it to 32 weeks, which is a week and a half before moving day.  Everyone is panicking, I'm not sure why, I'm not helping anyway.  I guess they just want my direction :)  But, we will finally have room for everyone!  We'll have a toy room in the basement with an office and school room for the babies when they start homeschooling, and an extra table for the scrapbooking I fully intend on doing (but probably won't).  

So it's resting for now.  Will try to be wittier on the next post, but not much is exciting on bedrest!


  1. What will you do if you ever have a girl? I love to read your blogs. I wish i could get into blogging, i just wouldn't know where to start. Keep up the good work.

  2. Thank you so much! I miss it, I've just had nothing to say for too long, lol!

    If I ever have a girl I will cry because six kids is just too many for me!


Love it and leave it!
