This pregnancy is flying by! I’m so excited about the upcoming “sprinkle” (a mini shower…get it! :)), getting ready for our little girl and getting Eric in pink mode after 3 years of blue.
A quick pregnancy update for those who’ve been asking. I’m doing pretty good, but have had a few high blood pressure readings so they are watching that closely (next appt tomorrow). I’m still having all day long, never ending, yeah right first trimester only my rear end sickness. This has led to a few unfortunate episodes in public, once again making more thankful than I can ever say that I telecommute! I recently adopted Eric’s gluten free diet and am happy to say that has kept the pregnancy weight gain to a minimum, safe level since it was out of control with Alex. Alex is super excited, wants to know when Olivia is going to be here and if she is going to arrive ready to go ride bikes with him.
Alex is doing great, although we are having daily meltdowns over next to nothing. Today has been a great day with no volcano like eruptions so I was not surprised at all to find that he actually napped today. Although as I type this he’s going into whiny toddler who needs a nap mode. It really stinks that by the time his neighborhood friends are home to play he’s not in any condition to be a good friend since 5-7 is the witching hour in our house. On a good note though he is sleeping through the night much better. So good in fact that when we wake him up at 10 to go potty he generally falls back asleep on the toilet. One of these days I’m going to get a good video of his “sleep talking” during this. 🙂
I am really looking forward this upcoming weekend. It’s hard to believe it will be our 5 year anniversary. 🙂 Now if only I knew what to get Eric to celebrate!
