Today, I wanted to move on to something a little lighter and share some baby updates :)
Last time I posted a baby update I was 24 weeks along, now I am 32! It's crazy how fast this pregnancy has gone by. We are beyond anxious to meet Aviana, but we sure do need the next 7 weeks to get everything ready. In case you were wondering about my math, 32+7=39 not 40, that is because we have an official csection date.
Although I'm not 100% sold on having a csection...I'm secretly
Last week E and I went shopping and he helped me pick out the cutest "little sister" outfit. We also bought a "big bro" tee. I think E is just as ready as we are to meet Avi. I have no doubt that he will be an awesome big brother. He is already so caring and helpful. The age gap between them,
Though we are not naive, we know Aviana's arrival will be a major adjustment for everyone. During our daily routines we always talk about how different it will be when she's here. How we will have to start doing this...or stop doing that. It's fun to daydream, but I am really looking forward to having her here and having that feeling where you can't remember what life was like before. I think that is one of the best feelings about parenthood, not looking back and missing your old life, instead having your heart feel so full that you don't even want to imagine life without your little one. If that makes sense.. It's the only way I know how to explain it.
Those are the things I want to remember feeling during the third trimester. I could go on and on about the back pain, the achy body, the swollen legs, the exhaustion, the weight gain, the painful kicks, the uncomfortableness, the itchiness, the dizziness, the shortness of breath but those are the things that go away and within time you forget. Which I want to forget if we ever want to have another baby haha ;)
So I am really hoping this wont be the last baby update because I really want to keep up with them over the next 7 weeks!
