Life Lately: Lucy.
I could go into more detail, Other than falling more in love and getting to know our girl we’ve been huddled up at home. Jakes been furthering his cooking with new recipes & we’ve also watched numerous episodes of chopped and iron chef. I’ve started thinking about projects and things id like to be working on.. baby calander for all the big moments, i’m writing letters to lucy every week on friday, a book to give her eventually from mama with love. I’d like to start printing off our photos and storing them in photo boxes for the future, that and I’d love to print off a few photo books our our adventures, Travels and clam life at home. I’m also still working on Lucy’s nursery, once we’re up to taking road trips i’d love to hit up the thrift shops so i can collect some frames to work on her gallery wall. I might want to print off a large picture or canvas for our bedroom. Something, but i’m not sure just yet. I’d also love to keep up with this blog. I was so good with it the first year and then for an entire year it went un-loved. So hopefully i can keep with it a bit more now that i’m not working and a full time mama. here’s hoping.
We’re in the home stretch. We’ve spent the last few days being a couple of home bodies, enjoying ourselves as a little family of two with the puppies before baby joins us. Making quiches, re-arranging furniture, making finishing touches to the nursery, watching far too much mindless television, snuggling puppies, staying up past our bedtime & sleeping in late into the morning.
We’re really cooking here. I mean, we’ve been cooked? Baby is officially full term & kicks have turned into full movements & I’m going to miss being so close to babe. These 9 months have really been special. I’ll miss the belly but I can’t imagine how much I’m going to love the newborn snuggles. We’re as ready as we can be to bring home baby, diapers, wipes, clothes, blankets, bottles & a place for baby to sleep. We’ve prepared to the best of our abilities, I want to say I’m ready for babe but once I day that I feel like in saying I’m okay to not be pregnant anymore, & that I’m not ready to say. I love the little kicks only I can feel & knowing I’m keeping baby as safe as I can. Soon I have to share my little one with the world, that’s terrifying. What if I just don’t want to share? Life other than baby? Husband & I are in a full on hibernation. We’ve rewatched all of the office & dexter. (Am I the only one who wanted to yell at he tv at the end of that series?) played monopoly & ham. Sister had a birthday in which we made sushi & had fondue. We’re getting good at our rolls. I impressed myself! Puppies have been going for walks & we’re napping & sleeping in. Trying to enjoy the last bit of life that’s just for us.
I’ve said it before but seriously this time, updates are coming to you shortly. I took a lazy person break but I need to really start documenting. I will ease your mind in saying that we’ve been hibernating & life has been good. We’re finishing Christmas shopping & baking when I can pull my self off the couch. Baby is growing & becoming more uncomfortable each day. However, I’ll be sad when this time is over, I’ve loved everyday of this, baby wiggling & letting me know he/she is in there & healthy, just waiting to come see us. Speaking of our littles arrival we’re busy getting our nursery in order & figuring out how to get a tiny car seat to fit In the huge truck.
