|gasp! bare belly! I cannot believe I did bare belly shots last time.|
*hangs my head in shame*
-Did anyone experience odd clinginess from their toddler in the weeks leading up to the baby being born? I know Em can sense a change--I'm sure of it. But I do feel like she's being extra clingy which is uncharacteristic of her. I don't know if it's her last set (praise the Lord) of eye-teeth--or this big 'ole change that's coming. But, phew. She is pulling out the tricks to extend bedtime, is mainly all!about!daddy! and wants to sit on our laps constantly.
Besides all that, she's still cute as a friggin' button, though. Here she is from last night singing 'Twinkle Twinkle' in the car. Oh this kid....
-We're going on our last getaway as a family of three on Thursday thru the weekend, and I'm excited. But I do totally dread the whole packing up & unpacking thing. I will savor the fact that I'm only packing for one child though, when after this trip, it's inevitable I'll be packing for two.
-Me in a bathing suit=scary. Maybe I should wear a sign that says "I'm 37 weeks pregnant, stop staring." I hope I don't make all the hot bodies on the beach jealous. You know, of this bod.
-The other afternoon I was in a MOOD. But then again, when I'm pregnant, when am I not in a mood? (It's sad, but kind of true. My poor husband.) I grabbed my keys, didn't even tell Declan where I was going, just said I needed some me time and left. I ended up (gasp! how did that happen?) at the nail salon getting a pedicure. Let it be known, a pedicure (at any time, but especially when very pregnant) is THE BEST attitude adjustment.
|also? While I can bend over still--who really WANTS to at 36+wks pregnant?|
-Up until last night I had NO big sister shirt for Emeline to wear when she met her baby sister in at the hospital. I know this may not seem like a big deal, but in my world? It was. An Etsy seller was going to make me one, then got too busy--but told me too late. Now it's really too late to order what I had in mind. But one of my friends, Lindsey is saving the day and she's graciously sending me an adorable Big Sis tee her daughter wore--and the fact that I'm not stressing over this anymore? Basically makes her my hero right now. Thank you, Lindsey :)
-I am FULL TERM this weekend.
Let me just let that soak in.
Nope, I can't. I'm in total denial. Holy moly.
A mom of two little girls....that's about to be me.
If you'll excuse me, I'm off to be poked and prodded at my OB appointment.
