We had such a fun time a few weeks ago celebrating our Haze with our family and friends. She was completely spoiled with gifts and chocolate cupcakes, she talked about her party for days! This little girl is so precious. I love watching her learn so much these days, absorbing everything around her like a little sponge, she's such a chatterbox and is always singing. I just put a few snippets together from throughout the day so we can remember just what she was like at this fun age :)
I'm 26 weeks along with baby two and feeling good. Mornings are still a bit rough most days, I wish I could just wake up and drink a big cup of coffee, but I'm usually a bit queasy until I get some breakfast in me. Leg cramps come on strong when I sit for too long, and getting out of bed is difficult! I'm starting to get closer to that third trimester uncomfortable phase, with Hazel it was never thaaat bad, but my body is feeling it more this time around. I'm more sleep deprived and have a lot more going on, but I'm forcing myself to slow down and ask for help more (something I'm quite terrible at). This baby is SO squirmy, waking me up with jabs so the ribs, I love it. I am SO excited to have a newborn, I know it's going to be a huge adjustment, and I really do forget how much work it can be, but I am so looking forward to having another little human to care for, to cuddle and who needs me. Now that Hazel is two, such a big girl, with strong opinions, it makes me all the more excited to have another one who won't deny my kisses or cuddles. At least for now ;)
I'm officially feeling large. As of this week, I've really started to notice my body taking it's toll and feeling the changes of this growing life. The flights of stairs up to our studio suddenly are killer, carrying Hazel around is becoming more and more challenging! My back is starting to ache and leg cramps get the best of me in the evening. My body is doing its job and telling me to slow down a bit.
This has been an incredibly busy season for Dan and me. This month is probably one of his craziest ever. Which has made both of us all the more excited for June and our little Oregon getaway. It's much needed, some good quality time, lounging on the beach and going for long walks in the sun, oh it's going to be good. Counting down the days. It's almost all I can think about ;)
I can't believe we're over the halfway hump! I just bought my first little outfit for baby, and a little blanket now that we know the sex! So fun to be able to do that, with Hazel everything was "gender neutral," which meant lots of grey and yellow, so when she came out a girl I wished I had bought at least something pink! A little advice if you're keeping it a surprise, buy at least one thing pink! I can't believe I didn't, I think I was convinced it was a boy, or that if it was a girl I didn't want to dress her in pink? Who knows, this time around, I'm glad I can be prepared, and buy a few cute new things <3 It was hard to resist this weekend with all the amazing Mother's Day sales going around!
