So much has happened the past few months. Life is if possible *gasp*even more busy and with all I have to share I’m sure you agree it is just going to become MORE busy. As I shared in I think my last post, I rolled my ankle prettttttttty good 5/31 and I AM STILL HEALING! Unreal. I’m sure, had I gotten a MRI they would find some SERIOUS sprain haha. I’ve gotten hurt in the past but I swear this recovery has been more brutal than my knee surgery. A good friend of mine saw my ankle several weeks after I did it and again today and she can STILL see the swelling that annoys me each time I look at my ankle ;-)
Evan is such a toddler, little man. He is not at all babyish anymore. Ok, well except for maybe when he sleeps:
He will be TWO next week! Exactly a week from tomorrow. As much as I miss baby Evan moments. Each day, he grows, learns and reminds me to live. He is such an amazing little man and it is awesome to watch him flourish. Other things flourishing?
Evan’s birthday party plans:
My plants (who am I kidding, my WEEDS too ;-) ) :
My love for my husband:
*be still my heart*
Yup. As much as I wanted to do the coolest post ever reveal. Here I am today in my 24 week glory ;-)
I still haven’t done a “share with the world” (you know my world,private facebook world) post. Simply because I want to do something super cute and special. Who knows,maybe I still will. But I haven’t documented this pregnancy as much as the last one because I haven’t even publicly shared the news! Of course friends and family know… hard to hide (especially in the picture above right after a long day of polish food (Thanks Joanna!) and ice cream haha.. what? cheat days after a loved one passes, I swear I’m still a super clean eater 90-95% of the time). It has probably taken so long for so many reasons all that is going on and I dunno the fact that it has passed thus far at hyper speed even with my day-to-day between raising Evan, working, attempting to work out (foot allowance…) and having a tremendous loss in our family… I’ve been spent! I will tell you this. This pregnancy is MUCH different than my last and I hope to speak more on that before this little person *we know the gender… maybe I can do something cool for that?!* joins us around Halloween (Auntie Nicole’s favorite holiday!). It has been great to share pregnancy woes with my bff who is almost exactly a month a head of me. She is expecting an early October baby and I’m literally due 10/30 although – and we both share this as well – I have no real belief my baby will show before then. In fact, I fully expect a November baby whose first holiday will be Thanksgiving. How appropriate too, because I’m so Thankful. Thankful for my friends (who have been AMAZINGLY SUPPORTIVE LATELY), my family (seriously… I’d die without them), and my little new growing intimidate under my roof family. To make Evan a big bro and my husband a second time father? My heart swells with happiness.
I’ve gotta ton to blog about… I really hope to check in more often. Now that life is slowly getting back into the swing of things, just in time to get thrown back out.
That’s the theme of my life right now. Off to hit my yoga mat and snuggle with my only child while it is still just him and I (and Oso, who is rattling around downstairs probably getting into trouble…).
