I have a whopping 8 weeks until Little Mr. is due! I think the thought of a newborn surprises me sometimes. I'll be thinking about it, and imagining Ellie plus a newborn catches me off guard! It has been a harder pregnancy in that I don't have the luxury of being lazy, propping my feet up after work, etc. At the same time, it has been an easier, much faster pregnancy this time around! There's always worry, but it's been much less stressful.
On March 1st we got to peek at our boy. I love technology!
Ellie definitely notices the change in my body, but of course has no idea what's about to happen. She's very interested in belly buttons now! I take comfort in the thought that she will never remember life any other way, other than having a brother. If not for that, I would have a lot more remorse (than I already do) about having to divide my attention.
Ellie is 16.5 months old! She's walking/RUNNING all over! Some days she is too busy going, going, going to stop and play with toys. She does a couple more signs now, including juice and book. She's a loving, cuddly, sweet girl.
She's a little young to have much interest in dolls, but I want to be prepared if she decides she wants to "be like Mommy." I found a very cute Doll Diaper Bag tutorial and whipped one up. I plan to make accessories to go inside - diapers, wipes, changing pad, burp cloths, etc. - and have it on hand as a surprise, so she can be a mini mama if her heart desires.
I really must get going on a quilt for the nursery. I have all the fabric I need, just not the time! Too many projects, so few weeks remaining! I did make this cute little quilt, though, because I knew it would be a quick assembly. I am in love with it, and dreaming of a pink & gray version so Ellie can have a matching one. We'll see. For every project I cross off the list, 2 more get added on!
