I miss being comfortable. I miss being able to run around and play with Urijah like I want to…and like he wants me to! I’m looking forward to being able to move around easily, and actually, this time, I’m looking forward to getting back to wearing regular clothes. Not saying that it’s going to be pleasant or easy for all those first months since nothing will likely fit anyhow, but so much of my maternity stuff already doesn’t fit, I’m really relegated to a few things that I’m just wearing over and over. So, mostly, I just want to be back to normal Julie.
We’re….pretty much prepared at this point, I think. U is definitely settled in his new room, the baby’s stuff is settled in his room, and I have the basket of burpcloths back on the shelf downstairs where we kept them before. I am going to set up the changing pad in our bedroom for those middle of the night diaper changes that have to happen in those first months, and the carseat will go in the car very soon! (We’re actually going to look at some cars later this week, since Scott will be starting his new job soon and will need a more economical vehicle for the longer drive. The plan right now is that he will take the Prius and I will drive whatever “new to us” car we decide on that has a bit more space for 2 kids. If we can decide on and find something quickly, we can wait to put the carseat in it, but if not, it will go in the Prius just in case. I finally took some pictures of Urijah’s new room, so you all can see it, so far. We still need to get a bookshelf and to figure out some better toy storage instead of just all those random bins on the floor. But, no real rush on all that stuff. He seems happy with it, just as it is!
Highlights of the week?
There hasn’t really been a pregnancy related highlight, but Urijah has really started saying more and more words and it is so exciting to hear him trying new things to say! Like when we were in the car the other day and something happened, and I said “Oh, shoot!” and without missing a beat, he parroted “Shoot! Shoot!” from the backseat. Ha! Some of the other new ones he;s come up with in the last week or two are help, food, oops, yellow, snack, yucky and cold. Also, here are the pictures from his first day of school..better late than never!
Belly pic: none yet, but I’ll have Scott take one tonight…the first “real” one we will have done in a lot of weeks!
(I might be smiling but that was because Urijah was doing his “silly” face for me. Otherwise, I’m huge and uncomfortable and can’t be bothered to wear real pants or do anything with my hair or face. Taa-daa!)
