Hello? Is this thing on?
Preparing for a new baby takes up so much time, and with busy schedules and visiting family, I have not been able to give this space the time and attention it deserves. I am back, though, and with a few tid bits about what I've been up to and how life's been going.
The above picture is the husband and me at Easter lunch. I'll be honest for a second and say that this picture was hard for me to post, because it's the first pregnancy picture I've shared online and on social media. If you follow me on Instagram, then this picture isn't new. But hey, milestone!
Reading... The most recent book I read was Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. Very good read! It was a page turner, and it kept me on my toes. I've also heard it's going to be a series on HBO next year. I'm interested to read more books by her.
Writing... All. The. Lists. Lists on lists on lists. I wrote an extensive to-do list of things my husband and I need to get done before Baby Boy makes his appearance in 56 days...!!! It can get really overwhelming thinking of all the things that need to get done, but at the same time, it gives me a sense of control when I accomplish something.
Wearing... Lot's of stretchy things! It's odd because, on one hand, I don't want anything touching my belly. Like if I could walk around in midriff tops all day everyday, I totally would. But at the same time, I need the stretch because my belly no longer fits anything that I wore pre-pregnancy, or even in the first and second trimester.
Eating... Anything and everything. But I'm still keeping it pretty healthy. I'm trying to get in lots of proteins and veggies, but I have always been a huge fan of carbs, so those are in there too. I'm trying to eat a lot of organic food and foods without a ton of preservatives. I've been doing a lot more scratch cooking (which Joshua LOVES), so that's been fun.
And that's all I can think of to update you guys on! It's been a crazy few weeks. I'm tired all the time now, and I don't sleep well, but I've got less than two months before I meet my new little man and life changes forever (again). I'm scared as crap, but I'm excited!
