One of my favorite Instagrammers/bloggers, is Danielle from Sometimes Sweet. I’m jumping on her Currently post train because I need a way to procrastinate some responsibilities right now. Check out her blog if you get a chance. She’s a mother of two insanely adorable boys, she has great style, and she provides an overall positive read. Love her stuff.
Doing: There is still so much stuff all over the house. We’ve been bad about putting stuff away the last few days, and it takes no time at all for junk to pile up around here. So I’m trying to go room by room and get everything put away so the house is ready for a good pre-baby cleaning. Hopefully the last time any cleaning needs to be done before The Usurper arrives. Just shy of a week from my due date!
Watching: Rewatching Game of Thrones in the background while I get things done lately. I’m a few episodes into Season Three, which I think is my favorite of the series. It’s been strange to go back and watch from the beginning and see so many characters that I love and that are also dead. But this is also the first time I have started a full rewatch from the beginning since I read the books a couple years ago, so I’m picking up on a lot more than I did the first time around.
Planning: Preparing for a second baby feels like way less of a big deal than the first baby did. I had changed diapers and bathed babies before, but when I had August, it still felt like I had no idea what I was doing and I would Google how to bathe an infant. It was a weird time. I feel ready to roll with this one, and I’m most excited that I can still plan to go to events and get out of the house. Feeling confined to the house for so long last time was the pits. So lets plan some brunch dates, friends. I’ll just strap a baby to my chest and be on with it.
Thinking about: Leftover shrimp lo mein in my fridge. And pizza. And beer. And s’mores. And oranges. And Poptarts. And macaroni and cheese. And beer.
Looking forward to: Our last child-free evening out. My mom is taking August on Saturday after we go see Thomas at the B&O Museum. The responsible thing to do would be staying home and tying up any loose ends before the baby comes. Eff that. One of my favorite memories is from the weekend before August was born. Instead of getting stuff done and being productive, Adam and I drove out to Pennsylvania so he could show me a house that had our dream yard near a race he recently ran. Then we went to a hot dog place he used to stop at on his way to visit his grandparents. Best hotdogs of my life, and french fries and milkshakes. Then we drove back home and went to the movies to see The Dark Knight. I told him that I want to repeat it, go get hot dogs, drive around together, and then go to the movies. Can’t. Wait.
Loving: Spending time together as a family of three. I keep stopping myself during little moments, like the three of us sitting in bed together this morning while August ate his breakfast. I was having contractions and thought it was go-time. It wasn’t, but it was nice to have a morning with just us three for one of the last times. I’m so excited to meet this baby and expand our family, but I am also enjoying how perfect it feels, just the three of us right now. Lots of mental snapshots.
