Happy Monday my lovely mama and lady loves! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I am here in the wee late hours of the night, blogging instead of sleeping. I’m sure I’ll regret it tomorrow, but I’m trying to get it all in before a snow storm comes our way. I was really hoping that we were past the winter season, but here in Michigan, snow in Spring time is pretty much a given event. I’m still counting my lucky stars that our winter was pretty mild this year. Anyway, here we are with our weekly link up and I’m so excited to catch up on the posts y’all share this week!
OMG. Here we are, hello!! third trimester!? I can’t believe that in just three short months, we’ll be meeting our newest little bundle of joy. I am equal parts excited, giddy, nervous, and scared for the chaos that is about to overtake our house!
I’m eating well (and gaining weight like crazy!), but I’m starting to feel a lot of the end of pregnancy symptoms pretty early on this time. I guess it’s pretty much the norm when it’s your third baby. And seriously, I’m only getting older with each pregnancy. Most days I feel great and normal, but other days I’m SO out of it and lethargic and just plain uncomfortable. In the silent moments of the hard days, I try to reinforce just how much I’ve been wanting to enjoy each moment of this pregnancy. It doesn’t always happen, but I’m glad I’m able to remind myself whenever possible.
I haven’t done much in the way of nesting. We still have to transition C into A’s room at some point this summer. So we won’t be doing anything to the nursery much, if at all. I did have D pull out two bins of newborn/infant clothes, but they’ve just been sitting out. Most days, I’m trying to enjoy all of the QT I have left with the boys before my attention is taken away by their littlest brother. I figure as long as he’s clothed, fed, and rested, babe #3 will thrive just as much as his big brothers did with all of the first (and second) time mom hoopla! Haha.
Our weekend was a “normal” one full of toddler sports, visits with family, and just lots of wrestling around and eating, eating, eating! Speaking of food, I am OBSESSED with all the sweet things. I think I made chocolate cake in a mug three or four times last week alone! HERE is my fave and easiest recipe for those of you who want an easy, sweet treat for dessert!
My parents were without power for a few days and they stayed over at the tail end of last week and my MIL is back at home after a few months’ stay at a rehab center for her ankle. So, we spent lots of QT with the grandparents this weekend. D and I always lament every winter about moving somewhere warm, but weekends like these remind me just how lucky we are to have both of our parents nearby. Michigan is HOME. And here is where we’ll stay.
Hope you all had a great weekend with your littles and loved ones! Can’t wait to link up and read your posts this week!
