Life and Caleb Update

We had a super easy Christmas and enjoyed a lazy morning of Brooks opening presents (and playing with each one in between which took a couple hours), then a great afternoon and dinner with the Everetts. Having a toddler who sort of "gets" presents made me so excited for morning, I was the one who had a hard time sleeping!

New Years was also easy and we were all excited to be in bed before 10:00. Shoo, we must be getting old!

I am 35 weeks pregnant now and had my first of several weekly check ups... funny enough, I am almost exactly as "progressed" as I was with Brooks at this stage. A small 1, and 20%...both of which mean nothing at this point, but it is good to know.

I have a feeling this little one is going to come a few days past his due date because he has consistently measured a 1-3 days small. So, my head is in it for the long haul. February 14th would be a fun day to have him because it is my late Grandpa Jack's birthday, he and Grandma Sonja's anniversary and my best friend's son, Ryan's birthday too... not to mention the day of love, and I can't think of a better way to celebrate then to welcome a new little man into our family...

I am still really comfortable, my rings still fit and I am still in jeans I had long outgrown with my last pregnancy, so all in all things are great! I have finally washed all of the newborn clothes and the car seat in anticipation of Caleb's arrival and to wrap my mind around the fact that we are bringing home a new baby in less than 49 days (at the absolute most)...

We are still in the process of selling our house and aren't totally sure where we will be when he arrives, so nesting isn't really possible. If this were my first baby I would probably have had several melt downs by now, but since I am well aware and ok with the fact that Caleb will be sleeping in a bassinet for at least a couple months and doesn't need a perfect nursery, I don't need any of the frills this time around. It is a much more relaxed experience, for everyone!

Good thing you are having a boy for your 2nd, cause otherwise, I'd be willing to bet you wouldn't be so relaxed about not having the nursery completed and all the "frills" this time! I'm right, aren't I!? ;) Haha. I am SO SO SO excited for you and that baby boy! He is gonna be another blessed little guy to have a great momma! All THREE of your boys are super lucky. Love you beautiful friend!!
PS. And so jealous, I gained the same weight (a LOT) with all 3 of my pregnancies so I am thinking when we have a 4th, I am going to try really really really hard to be good! By 35 weeks I had said forget the jeans and just lived in my PJs. :)
