It's friday, and it's SPRINGTIME! Lots to celebrate:) These photos were taken a couple weeks back, as evident by the size of my (smaller) belly. I'm now 21 weeks along with baby #3 - opps, I just accidentally typed #4! Getting ahead of myself. There is only one baby in there... confirmed by an ultrasound last week where I saw the little one sticking out his or her tongue, followed by some finger sucking. The technician asked if I wanted to know the gender, and I did, but I said no thanks as we are planning to wait until the birth to find out. At this point, I'm kind of leaning towards feeling like it's a girl, but I felt that way with Soren and he is definitely all boy.

This weekend we hope to spend lots of time outside, enjoying the sun. The kids are loving their scooters and bikes, and I'm sure they've slept better this week because of it. Fresh air... it's just the best. Have you read the article about how Dutch children are the happiest in the world? I'm sure unstructured outdoor time plays a large role in their happiness. And maybe chocolate toast for breakfast. I've never bought Nutella, but I think I may have to start. When I lived in Barcelona my room-mates introduced me to Nutella, and I knew that if I ever started buying it I would start a very bad habit. However... pregnancy... and new emerging research on children's happiness and chocolate may make have me reaching for a jar at the grocery store:) I bet it would be sooo good with toast and bananas. Or with banana bread...
