She is so much fun. I know, I know, she is ours, but really if you knew her she really is a lot of fun. She is becoming more independent so she doesn't want to be held as much and she is expressing her emotions a lot more. (AKA temper tantrums) It is hard to know exactly how do deal with them. I mean do you let her just throw her little fit or do you try to distract her to get her mind off of what she if fussing about to begin with. Not really sure. Experimenting in progress. We will let you know.
My progress is....well...progressing. We are currently 37 weeks pregnant! This is the farthest we have been in pregnancy. With Havah we only made it to 35 weeks so the uncertainty of what to expect for labor is mounting. Everyday we get closer. I have to say, I don't feel very prepared however I don't know if you can ever be prepared to have a baby. My list of things I want to get done continues to expand as my memory of what I want to get done continues to diminish.
For example, on Monday I was leaving the house to get to work by 8:30ish and realized I did not have my keys. So I got Havah out of her car seat to try and look for them. I ended up looking for 45 minutes for my keys. I mean, moving the couch and bed, crawling on the floor so I could be eye level with where Havah may have dropped them....45 minutes looking. Then I discovered them right as I was calling my in-laws to come get me...on the COUNTER!!!! The whole time I searched they were almost taunting me, every time I groaned and moaned trying to stand and squat back down to look, again, under the bed they laughed. Very funny you may say, not to a 9 month pregnant woman. I cried when I couldn't find them then cried when I did. Looking back it is funny but in the moment, not so much.
So as for us, we are getting closer. Closer to expanding our family and closer to being busier and more full than ever. So exciting. Can't wait.
