I managed to get one prego side view shot last Sunday. Not the most attractive picture ever and I'm not sure what I was doing with my hands, but now I can tell we're getting down to the wire. I'm definitely looking large and in charge... though fortunately don't have very much time these days to feel huge or overly tired.
I'm trying to get in as much running as I possibly can (within reason) before the idea of waking up at 6:15/30am to workout becomes impossible because I am so overtired and sleep deprived. My cute friends snapped a photo of me on our early morning trail run/hike on Friday.
My other main goals in the next five weeks are to...
- convince Andrew that sitting in the back of the Highlander by himself is really cool
- give Catie more opportunities to be my little helper and treat her less like a baby
- buy a double stroller that will fit in my Highlander when my back bench is up and I no longer have a spacious trunk to use
- do more than just look at the unorganized cupboards, drawers, and closets in my house...
Catie has surprised me once or twice over the past few days and has actually acted more grown up. She was super helpful when baby Jasmine was over on Friday and didn't cry or attack me when I held her (a first for Catie).
She's definitely realizing it is way cooler to be one of the big kids. When she woke up from her nap she came right downstairs to see the friends that were over and immediately said, "Hi Rose, Hi Simon" and joined in the craft project that the kids were doing.
I took her shopping on Saturday for a few cute baby accessories so that we can practice taking care of babies a bit more over the next little while... and then she's been my little cookie helper and cleaning helper this weekend too.
Can't wait to see how she acts with her new little brother!
Can't believe I'm already at 35 weeks.
