WARNING:: For some reason I've randomly started talking to you all like I'm talking to my 3 year old.
I've been living the quote of "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything." This pregnancy has not been the same as my first one at all, but I'm almost to the 3rd trimester where "beastmode" comes out and I'm just ready for baby! That's all I'm going to say. So, I really have just been doing the daily routine of going to work, getting groceries, taking care of the child (who now has a broken leg), & cleaning when I can, and within the month we have to do a switcheroo of bedrooms and couches to make some room for the new addition.
I think I told you we went to the Dells? Well, we went, it was great, Mt. Olympus was so worth it, we didn't have to go to any other water park and scored some free passes to other places in town. The LAST 'free' adventure we went on, daddy ended up driving us home at midnight leaving the Dells, traveling all night to get our sick toddler home in her own bed. Trampoline accident around 2:00 p.m. She was in obvious physical and verbal pain all day, we kind of chalked it up to lack of naps for 3 days and excessive fun and sun, but sure enough Dr. showed us the X-Ray and had a broken leg. So, that has been a challenge the last 2 weeks. She doesn't have a walking cast, so she figured out a way to scoot on her butt, but for the most part it's stroller, wagon, or being carried. It's super hard, especially with me already carry an extra 20 lbs. We go back to the Dr. next week, so hopefully she can get a walking cast--- Her T-ball & gymnastic dreams are shot for now. Wait, or are those mine?
So, with mommy pregnant and extra hormonal and hot, I can't take her to the beach, or park (unless it's a swing) and water events are really all I want to do right now because of the heat wave. Her T-ball and neighborhood kids run circles around her just sitting there, it's really heartbreaking.
So we're camping for a couple days later in the week, I'm going to have to get some kind of plastic wrap sealant so she can at least put on her swimsuit and enjoy a squirt gun or 2? So I guess I've been stressed, eating a bit more than I should be, feeling kinda super fluffy, retaining water, you know all the fun things that come with life and being almost 28 weeks. So that's where we're at. See why I haven't really written. Hopefully next time I write, cast is off- baby is out (jk), and the heat is a pleasant heat. Or someone builds me a small river in my backyard, that would be lovely!!
It hasn't been all bad though....
1. Breakfast on the farm was great Sunday, I am baffled by how big that operation is
2. I have a really cute maternity picture I'm going to get taken within the next few weeks
3. I am thankful I am able to have children (really)
4. It's July tomorrow!!!!!! It stinks I'm wishing the summer away, but I really want to see my little nugget and feel normal again.
5. I watched Lego Movie 3 times in 2 days- one word #princessunikitty
Baby Cravings: Coffee, brownies/cake, noodle salads
Weight Gain (as of 2 weeks ago) 18 lbs. (I think I was off on my last blog, my simple math skills aren't always the greatest)
Fun Things: Decorating/organizing baby's room!
Next Step: Daddy has to part with his prized possession Packer Room to turn it into a bedroom.
What I wish: For wings to fly and ones that can get wet
