I bought a gallon of milk today with the expiration date June 1. Do you realize what that means? We're close enough to June, the month that Lucy comes, that my milk will only last that long (if it even makes it that long since I've been chugging it straight from the carton these days). WOW, it's so much closer than it's seemed, well, since I found out I was pregnant. This one has draaaaagged on, but it's coming to a close. Good thing we're continually making progress on the room! Nate did purple flowers last night, and even those these photos are begging to be re-taken in daylight, I had to share them anyway.

The flowers will make the perfect frame for the yarn letters we did months ago. Can't wait to get those up on the wall!
Milo has been a little bundle of adorable energy lately, although he's always such a gem, too. We had a bit of a scare this week and I spent a day on virtual bed rest, and Milo has just been sweet and agreeable through it all. He actually got to spend most of the day playing with Nana, and he couldn't have been more delighted.

Today I pulled out my thank-you cards to write a note, and he asked me for one, too. I obliged him, and even got him a pen, and he spent a lot of time seriously concentrating on drawing on every single part of it. I asked him who it was for, and he told me, "It's for Daddy." So we marched into our room to put it on his pillow, and as he climbed up onto the bed, I asked him what it said. The answer was so completely heartwarming: "Daddy, I love you soooo much. Don't go to work any more."

I also let him get a $1 Matchbox car at Target today, because he was so good and walked right by me through the whole store. As we were walking to the check-out with his pick, he told me, "Mommy, this the coolest car I ever opened." So easy to please, and such a precious little nugget. Hopefully things go just as well when Lucy is born!
