So now that we have a tiny bit less then two months until the baby comes I have been a lot more tired and sore, I guess I cant complain since I have felt pretty good up until now. Perhaps I would feel better if I wanted to eat anything besides ice cubes and doughnuts, I know very nutritious! I am still guessing that it is a girl but Olivia lately has been saying she wants a brother so I guess we are good either way! I think it is about time to start thinking about getting some stuff together for the baby and buying a few things for him/her. I have started having my doctor’s appointments every two weeks so the end must be in sight! I am still pondering the idea of having this baby without an epidural since I felt so much better after having Zachary that way, I just don’t know if I can go into the whole process knowing that relief isn’t on the way.
Olivia was so excited to meet her new baby cousin. She keeps asking if she can hold our baby when it comes, I hope she enjoys the new baby as much as she thinks she will!
I am really liking being a mom lately, this isnt something that is always true for me. Honestly I am not a baby person and as my little ones get bigger I find myself enjoying them even more.
I love that my little ones are getting big enough to play together for (brief moments) nicely.
I love that they sleep pretty well, both at night and at naptime.
I love that taking them to the store is easier now that we dont have to bring a diaper bag everywhere.
I like that they love to go to nursery/primary allowing me to enjoy church (and I love that their teachers are so wonderful).
I love that they come to give me (and the baby) hugs and kisses at random times.
I love to see how excited they are when Rob comes home.
I like that they think helping me pickup or do the dishes or laundry is fun.
I am going to try to remember these things for “those” days!
Rob and I went to Tucanos for his birthday dinner since they give you a buy 1 get 1 free meal during your birthday month. The food was very, very yummy! Of course by the time they finally got us seated I think I would have thought anything was yummy. I really liked the fried bananas, teriyaki beef skewers, and of course the grilled pineapples! It was kinda hot in the resturant but we both left very stuffed.
Zachary has been having lots of fun dressing up in other people’s clothes lately. We did buy him some boy rain boots this weekend so hopefully wearing shoes that are his size will be fun for him, too.
Notice that he is wearing one purple boot and one pink boot.
Yay, for Daddy’s shoes!
