James is always so sweet with Gemma. She doesn't deserve it! All the kids have been helping me out during these last weeks of pregnancy, distracting Gemma and playing with her. I am a very lucky mama.
Gemma was in rare form today. Some words to describe her are: constant, loud, emotional, irrational, high-energy, spunky, defiant, hilarious, and animated. Luckily she took a good nap, and then after dinner Marcus took charge of her so I could garden. Planted 6 tomatoes, sunflower and patty pan seeds, 2 peppers, and 3 eggplants. Doesn't sound like much but I had to spend some time amending the soil (meaning I dug out the old clay/dirt, hauled it away, and added a mix of purchased garden soil and compost) since the sunflowers are along the edge of the garden where the tiller can't get to. I also had to pull weeds in those areas. But it is good work, it is good to be tired and sore at the end of an emotionally hard day. I'll post more garden pictures soon.
