Stealing the Show

N has been VERY excited about his new sister, and has managed, with his antics, to steal some of her spotlight.

Yeah, these are all from the hospital, what with the third kid, I can't seem to keep up with the picture loading and organization.

A little more about J

Addressing some questions:
Yes, all my babies have been big, over 9lbs. She was not the biggest.
The boys both had dark hair when they were born too, but not so much.
We'll probably call her Josie, but I'm waiting to see what develops on that front.
Priya is an Indian/Hindi name. Supposedly it means "beautiful" or "beloved." We just like it.

Pregnancy is bizarre

Some pregnancy symptoms just don't make any sense.
Why am I increasingly clumsy while it gets increasingly harder to get to the floor to pick up what I've dropped?
Why can't I breathe? What do my nasal passages have to do with it?
Why can't I remember anything?

And then there are the things that come and go with different pregnancies.
With S I was so swollen that I couldn't wear anything but my Jesus sandals, in November, in Philadelphia. But that one has disappeared in the following two pregnancies.
With N I regularly had leg cramps at night, but not with S or this pregnancy.
You don't want to know about the sweet new symptom this time around.

Just over a week until my due date. I'm ready.
