When you spend weeks just wishing you could get a little further down the road past the morning sickness, an amazing thing happens when you are finally having more good days than bad days…you are actually surprised by how far along you are!
The ticker above is one of my favorites because I’m able to show the children about how big the baby is in terms they understand.
What I’ve been doing this week:
*Reading pregnancy journals. This is one of my favorite things to do during pregnancy. I never get tired of reading through these old journals and reminiscing.
*Lovin’ all the pregnancy/new baby announcements from friends on Facebook. And yes, getting a wee bit anxious to be cuddling my own bundle of joy!
*Organizing. The better I feel, the more I feel the need to organize. First it was my spice rack, then it was my homeschool supplies. I have my sights set on the boys’ room next. (and next week you’ll get a taste of a couple of organizing projects I tackled. )
*Grocery shopping & cooking! I felt good enough to grocery shop and I’ve been back to cooking on a regular basis as well. I still have to be careful what I choose to cook and I can’t let myself get too hungry, but I must say my children are quite appreciative of the more varied fare.
*Trying to figure out how to rearrange my bedroom to accommodate the bassinet. I seem to start thinking about such things about this time frame. I know exactly where I want it, but that means moving my desk and I have no idea where to move my desk to. Going to keep thinking on this one…
*Potty training the 3 year old…again. We had a smallish victory yesterday when he actually told me (of his own volition) that he had to go potty! I praised him profusely and gave him a piece of candy. He grinned from ear to ear and told all his siblings, who then proceeded to all come and tell me they needed to go potty too. Lovely.
Looking forward to a wonderful weekend with my family just staying home and relaxing! Have a blessed weekend as well!
