wow. It has been just ages. Ages upon ages since we've caught up. And not just you and I. It's nothing personal, because I feel out of touch with EVERYONE these days. And the strange thing is, we're going through so much in common right now, you can probably commiserate and celebrate with me in ways no one else can so precisely, and yet, it's been impossible to go through all that together - given 3000 miles of distance, and the overwhelm that hangs over at least my existence these days in being pregnant.
So, we're both preggers! AND our due dates are just one day apart. What are the chances that college roommates would find themselves so in sync?!?! You're having a little girl, whom you've already named. I'm having a little boy, and we are still brainstorming name possibilities. :/

And that's pretty much all I can think of to say about this entire pregnancy [last time I had a whole blog full of posts! The second-child syndrome already begins . . . ]. Tell me all about yours! How have you been feeling? How is Eiley feeling about being a big sister? etc. etc.
It was hard not to think about our time in Berkeley this January, while we were buried under snow, instead of taking leisurely walks in 70 degree weather with t-shirts on. Remember Sofia and Eiley holding hands while we ambled down the block? Since we last saw each other, when we got to spend a week being "room" mates again for a week in Berkeley with our girls, we've both moved. How is your new place? I fear our move has made the most difference to Manny, who used to be able to walk to work and didn't used to have to mow a lawn or snow-shovel a driveway. I also miss our proximity to more walkable destinations we used to have, and the free heat, but otherwise, I love our house and yard.

Well that's more than enough about me. Your turn. Fill me in, Lobster!
