are you guys tired of seeing my belly yet? i made a vow to document this 2nd child as well as little A’s days…so far so good. these photos are from about 2 weeks ago (photo credit and copyright Leanne Pedersen Photographers).
every day i’m finding more things to do over again, thinking this will be the last quinoa salad i make, the last load of laundry, the last big grocery shop, the last sweep under the bed, the last pair of knit soakers, the last time i clean the toilets and the tub…it could be; i’m full term (i guesstimated within a week and the last day of that week passed), baby has finally dropped right on to my cervix, i’ve had a couple nights this past week of that wavy crampiness, boobies are full of colostrum and i’m in the zone with acute hearing and sense of smell. i’m finally enjoying the fullness now that birthing is near. i’m often quiet here, sharing the good stuff, but the past months have been a challenging time for me, both physically and emotionally. i’ve got some blessings going into this birth that are real treasures and for that i am grateful, hopeful and a little more centered.
i continue to nest, preparing for diaper duties;
picky pants on ravelry;
while i’m planning to co-sleep i’m also hoping to get more use of this cradle. it was a hand me down from little A’s aunt & uncle and his slightly older cousin spent some time rocking in it too. i finally finished quilting the sunday project – yay! i also found a BC made mattress that is 100% certified organic hemp/cotton twill & pure eco grown wool batting complete with puddle pad. it turns out that Tracey is also good friends with Fabs who made us little Nukey in the cradle corner who may be the babe’s first little love. gotta love how small the world is.
so until i figure out how to update wordpress and make this blog private or until i can’t stand being away from here… thanks for visiting. i’m on my way to motherland of a newbie & near 6 year old. eeeek.
