Great name, especially the meaning behind it and your photos are gorgeous. What a beautiful collection of different ethnic backgrounds! So many times you see pretty photos in portfolios, but they are so bland in their similarity. Yours are wonderful.
As for Julia being an anniversary gift-yes, we are totally expecting her to come on February 5th!!! Not only is it our anniversary, it is also the day we had to put an offer in on our house so everything 'big' seems to happen for us on that day. When I got pregnant in June, my mom said, "OF COURSE, we should have expected that to happen, since everything exciting happens for you in February."
Glad you all like the name. Surprisingly, so far everyone has liked it.
Now i know what day to more closely watch the board... I had a gut instinct with my third when he would come and he came that day. I can only imagine that your gut instinct will be close too! It will be incredible to have 2(maybe 3 if you get the house) such wonderful events fall on the same day.
O for finding which posts have new discussions on them.... Use the User CP option, go to subscribed threads and it should display the threads you have posted too, then i think they bold when there are new posts within them
Sorry I've been MIA...I've been madly trying to finish everything before today, because we thought baby was coming today and I STILL have work to do (self-employed), which I'd like to get done before baby comes, of course. I am so happy to have time to sit down and rest a bit today!
THANK YOU for telling me how to find threads!!! That was another problem. I wanted to respond, but I couldn't find my thread
MarysBuns-we actually bought our house in 2006, so it would be 3 things on the same day (today is our THIRD anniversary too)!
That said, at this point we don't think she is coming today. DH now thinks she will be late.
We shall see! I feel a little more relaxed now that I feel like I have way more time (of course, who knows if I do).
Today we're going to something called "Winterlicious" for our anniversary. http://www.toronto.com/winterlicious We're going to Opal Jazz Lounge. Unfortunately, we couldn't get in until 9PM.
Thanks so much for all your kind comments re: my photography. I just wish I was done it all!!! Yesterday I went to the lab and album place and the album place rushed my book blocks, so they have to do them again and they won't be ready until after the baby arrives
Lost my lodge (wasn't in User CP) and found it again!
Had a MW appt. today and my cervix has completely thinned out and I'm 1-2CM dilated, so she could be coming soon!!! I hope it's not tonight though 'cause there's a serious snowstorm and I'm not sure if I could have the homebirth I want in this weather.
Whew! Made it through the snowstorm without going into labour.
Thanks Chimmy I figured you'd like the name, esp. the first one.
Our anniversary was actually Feb. 5th, so that prediction wasn't true either. Winterlicious was DELICIOUS and a pianist we LOVE was playing too!!! We bought both his CDs.
Now I'm hoping she makes it past Valentines Day so she'll get her OWN special birthday. If she's not on her way tomorrow, we're going to go to a nice French restaurant that we also coincidentally happen to have a 2 for 1 coupon for (we used to always go there on our anniversaries when we were dating
