A friend suggested the other day that I actually write something on this blog, so here I am attempting to write. It has been so long since I’ve actually written anything that I’m not really sure where to start, which is why I’ve been sitting here staring at a blank screen for nearly an hour now.
I guess the easiest place to start is with baby news. I’m 32 weeks along and so ready to be done being pregnant. Thanks to the fact that Hubby and I seem to make ginormous babies, I’ve had several sonograms now. At the last check, he was measuring about 2 1/2 weeks ahead of due date based on his size. I’ll have another sono at 36 weeks and then most likely will schedule an early evacuation for the little guy. After two 9 pound babies, I’m a little scared of just how big this one will be. Of course, the kicks I’m getting in the ribs really aren’t helping that fear at all. Not only is he big, he’s a strong little guy.
While I’m ready to be done with the whole pregnancy thing, I’m not so sure I’m ready to be the mother of a newborn again. Round the clock feedings, diapers, no sleep – just the thought of all that makes me tired. However, once he’s here, I’m sure none of that will bother me and I’ll be more than happy to snuggle up and enjoy my baby boy. I just can’t believe how close it is getting.
The kids are getting really excited to meet their little brother. Evie is obsessed with asking how much longer it is until the baby comes out. She knows he will be here in February, so she asks over and over again when February will get here. Along with her excitement (and possibly some anxiety) over the baby’s arrival, we have also reached a stage of whining and crying and screaming that is completely unbearable. Knowing her emotions are going haywire has not given me any more patience, unfortunately.
Zach is getting anxious as well, but he shows it in a much more endearing way. He has become very loving and gives me lots of extra hugs. He also loves to rub my belly, which I think is the sweetest thing ever. He’s been able to feel the baby move several times now and thinks that is really cool.
And now I’ve got to get to bed, but hopefully I’ll manage to write more later this week. Next up – the holidays and some big plans for my photography business!
