I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Soaking up Baby-ness

I was snuzzling with Lara tonight and the baby was kicking away at her back. It was so much fun to have Lara be able to FEEL Audrey kicking her. It was a nice snuzzly, cuddly, warm moment.

I'll be 29 weeks this coming week and have a little over 2 months to go.

Really? I mean REALLY?? only that little of time? I don't want it to go so fast!

I remember feeling the last 10 weeks felt like a year and for this baby I really really don't want it to end. I LOVE being pregnant and am enjoying having a big round belly and a tiny alien roll around inside of me.

I want to soak up every moment...remember every second.

Besides...I'm not ready for the next part yet. I'm not ready to have a 2.5 year old that is not potty trained and is still in a crib ON TOP of a new born. I admit that I don't have much faith that Peyton will be ready any time soon to give up his diapers OR his crib.

He is just different from my two girls. They were chatting away at his age in big girl beds and wearing big girl underwear by the time the next baby came along.

I suppose I'm not ready for him NOT to be my BABY anymore either. I want to hold on and soak up every ounce of his baby-ness before the new baby makes him look like a GIANT in comparison.

I'm just not ready and that is quite O.K with me :)
