That pantry that has bags of Veggie Straws and Pirate's Booty shoved in just enough so it doesn't come flying out at you when you open the door? Yeah, I've probably cleaned and organized that sucker three times in the past month and a half. Now that we have a "Mr. Independent" on our hands, he will just take his little bathroom step stool and grab whatever his little heart desires to snack on at that minute, with no regard to the fact that I just spent 45 minutes rearranging everything he just toddlerized over the past two weeks.
Anyway, enough about that, besides cleaning and organizing and pitching every thing I can get my hands on, life has been becoming more chaotic around here. Being stuck inside for the past three months because of this God awful cold we have been dealing with, we are going a little stir crazy coming up with activities to keep a 3 year old entertained for more than 20 minutes at a time! That said, we started swimming lessons again…which, thankfully, this preggo mama no longer has to waddle into the kiddie pool with him anymore! He is one on one with an instructor and he's loving it. I think he was more excited about the goggles he gets to wear than the actual learning aspect, but it's only been two weeks, so I think he'll come around!
|Soooo proud of his "Gold Medal" after his first class of gymnastics…it's the little things!|
I am still keeping up with my workouts…even at almost 6 months pregnant, I can still keep up with the non-preggo gym goers. I'm taking each day in stride, though, because I don't know how much longer this will last. Things are getting pretty tight in the 'ol uterus, so breathing is becoming harder as the nugget is squishing my lungs and pressing on my bladder as I try to run! So, I am doing a lot more heavy lifting to bulk up these arms and legs of mine, since my middle section will continue to grow...But I am determined to keep up my workouts until the day before "d-day," like I did with Madden, so we will see how long I can keep up! So far, so good ;)
|I've been doing more "bare bump" shots, to truly see the bump, versus it being hidden under my shirts…as I couldn't tell a difference from week to week when I was doing that! So bear with my half naked pics… ;)|
I feel like there are so many other things I am missing, and I feel awful about this…I am going to do my best to post more, update you on my life, and try to give you better pregnancy updates, as we are only a short 15 weeks away from meeting Babe #2!
That said, what do you feel that you have been missing from me? What haven't I talked about that you want to know more about? Please, shoot your questions my way and I will give you all the details!
Thank you all for sticking around and not completely abandoning me…I truly appreciate and love each and every one of you!!
Until next time...
