We're at the point in my pregnancy where the midwife asks questions like "how's your pelvis holding up?" And my answer is something kinda iffy. These kinds of questions make it pretty hard to ignore the fact that I'll soon deliver another baby and then have 2 kids. Forever. Second pregnancies are weird, at least mine has been. It's still magical but just a totally different mindset/etc. than with the first. And way fewer of those 12-hour nights of sleep I had the first time around. We're definitely very excited to meet this boy but it's just different. It's been way faster and also sorta slower (to me). You know, that old trick time does. Anyway, we're finally working our way through the 'Before Baby' honey-do list (but obviously I fill it up as quickly as we empty it). I'm slowly cleaning out every drawer/area I can in our apartment to find any possible thing to get out of here. Of course, by the time I get to the last area, the first one will be messy again. Even with only 600 square feet to manage, it seems like things are never all put together at the same time.
As for Gwen, I'm trying to get out and have fun with her during these nice Spring weeks before baby but I also just found out Costco has Ben & Jerry's by the quart so sometimes we just stay in. Gwen's getting pretty good at working the ipad (I have mixed feelings about this but I have a feeling it might save my life in about a month.) and she's reverting back to "baby mode" right on schedule, asking to be swaddled/rocked/sung to. Also, every time she hears a baby cry she says "aww, baby, shh shh go to sleep." I'm sure that won't get old! It's gonna to be a wild ride for a while, but seems like she's up for anything.
