Bliss with a Sidedish of Pregnancy Babbling


That right there is bliss.

A blurry quick moment with a sweaty sacked-out little boy asleep in my arms. I swear nothing feels better than the heavy even breath of your child on your neck, their arms wrapped tight around you. These days, the moments are fleeting, even more so as the belly just doesn’t allow for long snuggle times (not to mention it’s not easy to carry a 30 pound toddler around), but when they happen, oh they are the best kind of sweetness.


And there it is…all 36 weeks of baby belly. (Okay fine, I still technically have one more day until it’s ‘officially’ 36 weeks, but exactly one month from today is the supposed due date).

I haven’t written much about this pregnancy. The early days were so hard with conflicting emotions, that I wasn’t sure what to put on paper much less say out loud. And then, the next few months just flew by chasing a toddler and going about life. The minor discomforts and inconveniences of pregnancy were a blip on the radar in comparison to taking care of my family and going about the routines of life.

But a small secret happiness has settled in my heart. I have visions of the milky sweet breath of a newborn. As I’ve worked on organizing baby clothes and getting the house ready for this baby, I marvel at how small everything is. The diapers and clothes and even the burp clothes seem small. Oh it will be so nice to have a baby in the house again…

It’s a little hard to believe that July is just around the corner. But then again, I have heartburn and leg cramps, both of which keep me up at night, so July can come quickly as far as I’m concerned.

    Love the first pic! You look great! I have just hit the I’m ready to meet baby phase–sure the house is utter chaos now that we have just moved back in with plenty to do and gee it would be great if I could get something for the new baby out of the basement so that I am prepared, but alas, not yet. But it doesn’t matter, I am just ready to bend over without grunting!! And that’s the end of my rant : )

    And I just reread my comment and I sound like a jerk. I do want to meet this baby because of course we are excited it’s just that I am also OCD and want everything in its place before the baby arrives and to feel a little less like a waddling old lady!
