[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”] J [/dropcap]ust a few things . . .
1.) We’re making changes to this website, so please check out the new pages at the top of my homepage. These will be updated on a regular basis and a few more pages may be added. If you have thoughts or comments, please let me know! Or if you have websites, blogs, books that you think I would love, then please tell me! I’d love to hear what you all like. Lastly, if you were a subscriber, you will have to subscribe again. Sorry about that . . . but hope you find the new changes to be an improved version.
2.) I am feeling LARGE. I’m really hoping that this baby only weighs about 8 pounds or I fear that I may look giant in a few months. I actually lost 4 pounds during my bout with the flu and have only gained 2 back. So I weigh less than I have weighed since our honeymoon. Holy smokes. Yet I have this big belly. So all the maternity shirts are out and in rotation. Haven’t needed the pants yet, but I anticipate that shortly. I don’t feel this is good news for only being 14 weeks along. Ezra weighed 8lb 13oz, and here is a belly photo at 32 weeks. I feel that I may be larger than that by 32 weeks this time. AND food doesn’t even appeal to me! I’m forcing myself to eat as I’m nauseous 24/7. I guess the good news is that I’m not resorting to hypnotherapy like the Princess of Cambridge is as she has complete food aversion. And have I mentioned that my skin is bad this go around as well? That’s a new one for me. Anyway, enough with the pregnancy woes. I’m relieved that this will be the last go at this. 😉
3.) I’ve been in nesting, planning, shopping mode. I really want to put girly things in the nursery . . . yet am waiting until the ultrasound. I need patience. And if baby is a boy, I really want to clean out all of the boys’ clothing and just keep what I know he’ll wear. I’m wanting to get ahead and not behind with this baby.
4.) Also feeling ready for winter to move on. I know we need lots of snow and rain as this has been a very dry winter, but the cold has kept us from going out. And as Ryder likes to cry and say, “Mom, please don’t make me stay in that living room and kitchen!!” We’re needing to get out. All of us.
And that’s it really . . .
