i’ve been a really horrible blogger the past, oh…few months. i wish i could say that i’ve been super busy or something, but the reality is that after i get home and get jonas to bed, all i want to do is soak in the bathtub and watch old 48 hour mysteries, hair tutorials, and episodes of degrassi high.
so i’m writing this in a crappy attempt to briefly go over what’s been going on around these parts lately…
he’s a hoot. jonas has some sweet white boy dance moves, and couple that with his obvious musical talent, and we got ourselves a show. he likes to take his harmonica, bang it on his thigh while saying “TWO FREE FOUR!” and then play like a maniac. he’s getting into pretend play, having even longer drawn out conversations with his Zeusy dog, annabelle, and meow-meow. he “vacuums” the downstairs with his ball-popper, builds with blocks, and shuffles around the house in whoever’s shoes he can find.
one of my favorite things is watching him try to ride zeus, our corgi. he’ll manage to get one chubby little leg lifted high as possible in the air only for zeus to have walked off. rinse, repeat.
the new kid:
i haven’t gained any weight thus far in the pregnancy (give or take a pound daily on the scales), so it’s looking like i’ll be at about the same place i was with jonas weight-wise. which is fine by me. i have a personal goal of only gaining 15 or so pounds, which is healthy and achievable. the doctor is pleased with me so far, so that works for me.
we had an ultrasound several weeks ago at work, and it’s looking like the new kid is actually noah james alexander. we have our official ultrasound to confirm that he’s still noah and not piper (even though through recent events we realized that ultrasounds can lie about the gender, which is the best surprise!). in the past week i’ve felt the random kick or two, and can’t wait until it’s studio 54 in there.
sleeping is just about impossible, and i still have a fun “hold my puke” moment atleast once daily. i find it so hard to complain about pregnancy though because we have been so blessed to not only have this baby coming, but to have such a healthy and easy time. i just don’t see the point in being all bitchy and moany about it when really, it could be so much worse.
spring break is coming up, which for us means that while we still have to work, we get to do the GREAT ROOM SWAP OF 2011.
the guest room downstairs needs to be cleaned out so that we can paint and then move our bedroom things down there. jonas is moving into our old bedroom, and then we have to paint the new kid’s room and begin to get it all set up.
we decided to leave our old bedroom painted the same (gray on most of the walls, a great green color on the others) and we’re actually painting our new room the same. lame, whatever. we like it. the new kid’s room is going to be gray and yellow (no matter what gender) and after the gender is finalized as much as possible, we will order the new bedding. jonas is staying in his crib for a while longer…he’s just not ready for a big boy bed, and frankly the idea of him roaming around upstairs by himself at night more than slightly terrifies me.
i hope to post pictures of the rooms when they are all finished!
until next time :)
