Holy pregnancy did I fall off the wagon with this blog or what? I’ve been mentally here, sort of, blogging in my head but never translating to paper. TOO. DAMN. BUSY. It mostly stems from work, things have been insane and while I’m very grateful for the job, I’m beat when I get home.
It’s been a whirlwind these past few weeks, and then some. I’m 36 weeks pregnant this Saturday and am feeling every bit of it. We’ll just leave it at that in an attempt to not sound over dramatic, and to spare you the fun details of what’s happening to your body at the end. The end. The END – it’s near! I can’t hardly believe that in just a few weeks I’ll meet this little man. This pregnancy has felt long, but then again looking back it does feel like it’s also flown by. It’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that we’ll have another little one around. Brooklyn is it, she’s our baby girl, so grown up now and becoming a big sister.
Lets pause and update on that little diva while we’re at it. Her vocabulary is insane – she’s says anything from ‘mommy sit now!’ to ‘catepilwar’, ‘ouside’,’yogur’,’i like that!’, ‘be wight back’, ‘sweet deams!’, it just goes on and on. The past two months have been remarkable in watching her change. I love that little mouse more than I can ever describer on paper, she is the best thing that has happened to Dom and I, hands down. She’s also been helping in the kitchen lately and would like for me to let you know she’ll be hosting a dinner party soon.
We are anxious to introduce her to her little brother, I’m confident she’ll do great with the change but also know to expect a few rough patches as we work through giving our time to both.
House projects are still underway, my poor husband has been a freaking rockstar helping get everything ready. He has totally stepped it up and accomplished so many things over the last few weeks that we wanted to get done – I hope to post before and after pics of our room, the baby’s room, etc…but considering it’s been about 6 weeks since my last update, don’t hold your breath.
Speaking of baby’s room, my friends at work threw me an amazing shower and HOOKED us up with so many adorable little boy things. I am so grateful, it’s such an awesome feeling when people are so generous and thoughtful, it overwhelms me. What also overwhelmed me was all the BLUE as I’m so used to seeing PINK. A balloon was all it took that day to throw me into the reality that my little BOY is almost here.
I’ve got so much to say, updates to give, stories to tell, but that’s it for now folks. I’m hanging in there, almost done making this baby. Stay tuned.
