Time has really been flying by. If life continues to speed on like it has been during my pregnancy I’d like to call an official time out and press pause for a little bit. I love being pregnant. I’m trying really hard to savor every moment and enjoy this time with baby boy before I share him with the world. Even the not so fun moments-like not being able to sleep because of my busy, anxious head and even more busy little guy, or throwing up in the restroom of Target (and Red Robin and Olive Garden and The Capital Grille…), or walking around my baby shower with my tights falling down and my dress safety pinned shut in order to prevent another wardrobe malfunction the likes of which we haven’t seen since Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl. Even those moments I want to remember and treasure. Because it makes the wonderful pregnancy moments even more fantastic…like seeing his sweet face in 3D, and feeling his jabs and kicks to my ribs while his already proud papa reads him a new book each day. I want my son to have siblings (at least one-a sister perhaps?) but it’s possible this is my only pregnancy in life, you just never know, so I’m trying extra hard to just be in the moment and appreciate it.
When you’re prepping for baby and creating lists upon lists of things you (still) need, and reading and re-reading product reviews, drafting birth plans, and downloading pregnancy and baby Apps, it’s so easy to get caught up in all the planning for the future that you forget to enjoy the present. Not that you can really blame me for being caught up in the future…ten tiny fingers and toes are some pretty incredible things to look forward to.
Crue Bear, we are so so so excited to meet you soon!
