~I am 28 weeks pregnant and feeling pretty good. I have a HUGE belly and can't imagine it growing for another 11 weeks. Yikes.
~I try to walk on the treadmill 4x times a week for about 30 minutes. It makes me feel better about doing all the eating and snacking I am doing :)
~Hawkins has been doing a breathing treatment for the past 10 days for a bad cough and the boy does not like it! Only his Daddy or Big Daddy can convince him to leave the mask on for longer than 30 seconds. Many M&Ms have been used for bribery.
~My boy has had a rough few months as school...first he got scratched this summer by his teacher and STILL has a scar on his chin. Mommy is really not happy about that. Then he got bitten for the 2nd time this week by a classmate. Poor fellow. He better learn how to fight back! Then he hit himself in the eye with a toy truck and now has a black eye...just in time for his 2 year pictures on Sunday, yippee!
~(Knock on wood) he is doing much better sleeping and falling asleep. We went through a rough 6 week patch, but thankfully he is doing less crying and less crawling out of his crib and more sleeping through the night! Now I just have to decide when to move him to the dreaded "big boy bed" before his little brother arrives...
~I am sooooo ready for cooler weather. Fall is probably my favorite time of year. I love the pumpkins and crisp fall air - hurry up and get here!
~I am really starting to get things together for the baby and it is surreal that another human will enter our family in a matter of months. I have somehow found Hawkins newborn clothes and even bought the baby some new ones of his own. They are so tiny and precious it makes me melt.
~On that note, I am really nervous about going from one to two children. Am I the only Mom who feels this way? I know my love will multiply and not divide, so I'm not worried about that. It's just going to be tough for Hawkins to have to share his Mommy with someone else. I have a feeling it might not go over so well with him. He is in a major Mommy phase and will only let me do everything for him. I don't know how I will be the one to change his clothes, put him to bed, feed him AND take care of a newborn. It's not that I don't have helping hands - he just wants ME to do everything!
~Our family of 3 went to Atlanta last weekend to spend time together and do fun stuff like go to the zoo! More pics later...
~I crave lemonade, Oh's cereal and cinnamon teddy grahams right now. Oh the joys of pregnancy!
