Have you had days when you feel like you have so much to say but not enough words to say them? Like you know what you want to talk about, but you can’t get it out? It’s a day of lots of thoughts and self talk communication, but not a day of understanding or processing.
I’m still finding it hard to believe that we’re going to have a newborn in two months. Oh, 8 month pregnancy photos to come on Friday, I promise! I am so excited for our 2nd baby, but it just doesn’t seem real. (I know, I know.. it will become real very soon, ha!) People are asking me what I’m doing to prepare Lucas for the arrival or a baby brother or sister (sooo excited to find out!) and my response is always the same. Ummmm. What am I suppose to do? He is a little young to fully understand it I think. Some days I think he’ll do great and others I worry about him. Will he feel like I’ve left him when I spend time with the new baby? Will he understand? I hope he does okay.
The kids are sharing a room (eventually) and I’m absolutely not buying another crib, so we have to transition Lucas into a “big boy bed” (a twin) eventually. So, like, pretty soon. I have been putting this off as long as possible because I don’t think it’s going to be any fun. How exactly do you teach a kid to stay asleep in bed? I know many people do it though, so we’ll figure it out.
I went through storage yesterday to take out some things for the baby and realized we only have six size small cloth diapers. I need to get some more, what other cloth diapers do you love that are snaps? Besides bum genius velcro. We’re staying away from velcro. They fade way too fast and Lucas has now learned how to take them off which is pretty awesome at nap time.
Another part that I keep forgetting is labor. I haven’t really done much to prepare for labor, so that is something I need to work on/start on. Daily squats, walks and more swimming is in order for me.
Oh, I also keep forgetting that winter is coming up in a few months. Winter = snow and 20 degree weather. As in snow every day for about 7 months. Which…. means I need to have winter clothes for my children. Which means I need to go shopping. Which means I should probably do that before I see the snow falling from the sky.
And Lord have Mercy, what are we going to do about these pacifiers? I feel bad taking away my toddlers comfort object when we go through a huge change such as having a baby in the house, but then I feel like having two kids in pacifiers is kind of silly. But then again, I really don’t care. Whatever makes people happy. There are more important things to worry about when raising my kids than stinkin pacifiers.
(If you think I’m a ridiculous mother for letting my son have a pacifier right now, don’t bother sending me an email. Save your breath please.)
Lucas got a new piano and he loves it. He lays down to play it… so cute!! It is slightly creepy at times because if you forget to turn it off it will meow. As in a cat’s meow. Then you think you have a cat in your house and I do not need more animal hair in here.
I hope you liked that picture interruption.
I am so excited to find out if we’re having a boy or girl. I’m pretty sure it’s a boy, because I’ve had several different people tell me they had DREAMS about it being a boy. I have never had a dream, but people I hardly know are dreaming about me going into labor and delivering a boy. Funny. I am happy boy or girl and, you know what I always say, if it’s a boy then I know we will be having a third! But I might be waiting more than 11 months to get pregnant… not sure yet.
Are you so excited for Christmas this year? Do you want to talk about it? I am not having a Halloween baby, either. Halloween is not on my calendar and I don’t know what it means.
Anyways. What were we talking about?
