galoshes on- check! lion- check! 35 week henry in utero- check!
Oh boy... I think I'm ready to be done with pregnancy. I love being pregnant, but this one has physically worn me out. Thank goodness we have jumped straight into fall, perhaps even winter. Maybe having two kids so close together is taking its toll? I don't know. But I have had the October tater tot arrival in my mind for 10 months, and it's here. Amazing.
Our little sweetie has been keeping us busy. She talks ducks, fishes, balls, "moooore" food, bananas. It's wonderful. She smiles and points and hugs and kisses (even with the kissing noise). She chases us around the house and loves being spooked around the corners. She laughs hysterically when she starts to get delirious/ tired at the end of the night. It's too cute. It makes us realize that all of this hard work is worth it, that the world is wonderful and just as it should be, that nothing else matters.... like the dishes piling up, the crusty fruit droppings under the high chair, piles of laundry, an aching pelvis, the husband that I haven't spent quality time in days with, and mail in the mailbox for who knows how many days. This little person is perfect. Life is pretty darn good ...and it's October!!! We almost get to have another tiny person.
