When I first started Friday Morning Coffee, I was pregnant with Eli. I would drop the older kids off at school, come home, top off my coffee, grab a bowl of cocoa puffs and my laptop, sit on the couch and share whatever was on my mind.
Um. Those days have gone bye-bye. Right now, however, I am sitting on my couch with my laptop, for the first time in weeks. I am drinking coffee and I just had a pop tart. (okay, two pop tarts, leave me alone)
This moment of peace is brought to you by Eli waking up at 5:00 this morning. This is also known as UNACCEPTABLE and NOW HE IS GROUNDED.
So, not only am I not sitting around blogging, relaxing and eating cocoa puffs.
Now, I’m chasing Eli, waking up early and I’m in my third trimester.
Can you believe it, friends? TWENTY-EIGHT WEEKS PREGNANT.
(by the way, I decided to crop out my fingers because they are soverylarge.)
Baby girl is becoming so strong. During the past 8 weeks or so, I’ve grown a little frustrated with her lack of movement, I’d become convinced that something was wrong. And then, finally, after hours of freaking out, I’d feel a little *taptaptap* way down low. Like a little reminder, her letting me know she’s okay, she’s just resting because she’s going to be busy for the rest of her life.
But now, she’s making her movements known to the world. Her kicks are hard and her rolls are vigorous and she’s getting so very big. We had an ultrasound the other day and found that she weighs 3.1 pounds already. I love how wonderfully large she is.
She’s becoming the main topic of our conversation these days. Her nursery. Her entrance. Her sweet baby toes. Planning time off from BFP, Brian planning time off from work…
We don’t have time to just sit around and wait which means time is flying, right past our eyes.
I absolutely can not believe how fleeting these moments are, how soon our last child will be in our arms, ready for us to nurture her and watch her grow. I’m so ready for those moments to come but I’m also holding tight to these moments now.
Before we are six. I love that we’ll be six.
Happy Friday, friends.
