Today I’m 28 weeks pregnant. Not sure if it’s going fast or not… I can say it’s going by faster. Especially because the holidays are approaching and my kids begin school track out next Monday. They’ll be out for 3 weeks. So by the time they’re back in school it’ll be December.
In 2 weeks I’ll be 30 weeks pregnant. I had Zoe when I was 30 weeks pregnant. So, I’m a little apprehensive. But I have a feeling everything will be just fine. But can’t blame me for being a little freaked out. At least my son appears to be weighing in pretty big. He weighed 2.5 pounds last Tuesday!
I’ve been thinking about how lucky I am lately. How very blessed my family and I are. And when little Mason gets here our family will be just that much more blessed. Oh… did I mention his name? We’ve decided on one…
I was telling my husband the other day that I’m so glad that we’ve had our kids so far apart. I was thinking how lucky I’ve been with them… just for the simple fact that when I had Zoe Angelina had just started school, so Zoe got me all by myself for many hours a day. Of course Angelina was my first so she got me all to herself for a time as well. And now both my girls are in school so Mason will have time with just me for several hours as well. And then I’ll pick up my girls at school and have the special time with all 3 of them. I just keep thinking… how lucky are my kids that they have each gotten uninterrupted alone time with me and sometimes my husband. If I had my kids really close together it would have been fine, I’m sure. But for me this way is the best. Plus, it’s neat to see the excitement on my girl’s faces, because they REALLY truly understand what’s going on. It’s super fun!
On a random note, I taught myself how to crochet. I really wanted a blanket for Mason and I want to make him some hats, so almost 2 weeks ago I sat down and watched a couple YouTube videos by Crochet Geek (she was recommended by one of my Instagram friend). Thanks Elizabeth! :) So I practiced a bit and then decided that I was just going to get started on crocheting Mason Benjamin a blanket. It’s really large (like big enough to completely cover my 6 year old) but it’s great! And it’s really warm. Perfect for winter time. I can’t wait to take pictures of him laying on it!
After I finished Mason’s blanket (in a week) I decided that I wanted to make another blanket. So I’m currently working on this one…
And when that one’s done, I’ll be working on a blanket for Angelina and Zoe for Christmas. And in the midst of those I’ll be learning how to make hats. I tried yesterday… but it turned out pretty bad. haha!!! But I’m determined!
Last night was so fun (not the political part)… my mom came over and I taught her how to crochet too. Have I mentioned how much I’m loving living close to my parents again? It’s so fun hanging out with them! :) My dad and husband are out of town, so last night, my mom came over and all of us (my girls, myself and my mom) went to dinner, Michael’s and then came back to my house. We relaxed, laughed and she learned to crochet. It was so fun!
I’m currently crocheting a little runner to lay over a trunk I have in my living room. It’s just a quick project. :)
SO… what have you been up to lately?
