29 Weeks and Counting

So I am officially 29 weeks pregnant and, yes I am not one of those who are capable of consistently tracking their pregnancy, because I honestly just forget and the weeks just seem to sneak up on me. I am shocked that I am already 29 weeks. Eeeeeekkkk, in no time at all I'll be holding another precious baby boy in my arms. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention in earlier posts that we found out we are expecting a new little baby boy, and I'm so excited!  I feel like I'm so used to being a mom to little boys that another boy will be easy peasy puddin' and pie. 

I am anxious and a little nervous waiting for him to get here and to meet him for the first time. I feel like with pregnancy you're never ready until baby is actually in your arms. I'm also not looking to that kind of empty feeling where baby used to be inside my body, because even with how difficult this pregnancy has proven to be at times I love having him safe with me and feeling him moved inside my belly. I always feel so blessed to be on this journey of motherhood once again.

Now that I'm 29 weeks my body has definitely adjusted better than it was doing earlier. I think my body literally went into shock getting pregnant when the twins were only 9 months old, but it has adjusted and we are cruising along just fine now. No more morning sickness for the last 2 months now, I can eat red meat and tuna without hurling, and I definitely have a healthy appetite again; and that my friends, is a beautiful thing.

I have eleven weeks to go and I am striving for a really peaceful journey.

Things I'm Grateful For

As the weekend fast approaches I can't help but to look over my week and be enormously grateful for the life that God has blessed me with. Would it be considered perfect by the standards of others? No, but that's ok, because it it perfect to me. These are just some of the things that I am grateful for and have made me smile this week. 

Watching the twins actively love on and look after each other warms my heart. Every time I catch them holding hands, hugging, sharing, or defending each other from me I am overwhelmed by the fact that God deemed me worthy enough to be their mom.

It's summer and the living is easy, and after the crazy spring we have had here in Colorado, that's enough to fill a gratitude bank for a year.

I got to hear the baby's heartbeat today and it was so solid, strong, and reassuring.

Feeling the baby move always puts a smile on my face

I start school in a week eeeekkkkk, post on that coming soon

I launched my online jewelry boutique like I had talked about doing so many months ago. It's still in the beginning stages but check it out and tell me what you think Unbent Jewelry

My Love really liked his Father's Day gifts and I'm grateful for that because I always want to get him the most perfect gifts. It makes me feel good to see him enjoy things that I picked out for him.

Listening to the twins try and speak 'English'

The 3 little birds on my hanging plants, made me feel like I was in a Bob Marley song

I am loving being a mom and getting ready for a new little one and I am enjoying just being present and soaking in the little awesome moments that surround me everyday.

What are you grateful for?

So You Think You're A Dad?

      I don't think it's even possible to put into words the deep admiration and love that I feel for My Love as a man, as my soul mate, and as a father. Nothing fills my heart to overflowing like seeing the way the twins adore their dad and the way that he adores them. 
Dad's can be jungle gyms too
          The genuine love, intense interest, and patience that their dad displays and heaps on the boys in overwhelming amounts, completely takes my breath away. I cannot sing his praises enough when it comes to the devotion that he shows his family. 
     When the twins were first born I was really sick with pre/post eclampsia, had sky high blood pressure, a blood clot in one of the major veins in my abdomen, and was drugged and disoriented to high heaven due to the c section. Scary I know. Because of all this My Love spent the first hours of the boys lives with them by himself while I was in recovery.
     When I was able to join them, he had to teach and help me learn the boys and their needs. He encouraged me while I learned and got adjusted to breastfeeding. He went above and beyond, picking up my slack and being my rock and ally through sleep deprivation and two babies who had two different schedules. He did all this with a smile on his face and I can never remember him complaining, even though he'd work a full day and then come home and hop right in the trenches with me.

I'm pretty proud that King was wearing matching socks, (small victory)
Father's Day was created just for dads like him. For dad's that are so incredible, that they have both their kids and wives, waiting for them by the door for them to get home. For Dad's who are so amazing, that they make their kids wake up in the middle of the night and early in the morning just to hug and kiss them. For dad's who clean high chairs, pack diaper bags, change diapers, dance, laugh, sing, and genuinely enjoy spending time with their children. Father's Day was created so I could tell My Love and the world how much I adore, love, respect and admire him for all that he does for his family, and how incredibly thankful and blessed I am to have him as a soul mate and the father of my children.

'I'm So Pregant' Hilarious Iggy Azaela Parody

When my love sent me the link to this video I laughed so hard and watched it over and over. I feel like I had written these lyrics myself, and could relate to every single line. I cannot wait to eat sushi again, to not laugh to hard for fear of peeing on myself, and to be able to bend down and be able to get back up all by myself. Watch this video for some good ole pregnant laughs, but be careful not to pee!
