Oh baby, we’re getting close!
During the past 2 weeks of growth, baby Wallace:
Is dealing with a mother who is in mega nesting mode, but doesn’t have much of an outlet for it! House projects keep running into little hiccups, and I am getting frustrated at times! I’m going to be perfectly honest here – I struggle with having things “ready.” What does this “ready” mean? Honestly, I know in my head that it is silly – that our sweet baby has all that they will need. A warm, clean place to sleep. Food to eat. Clean clothes. Clean diapers. What an amazingly blessed baby when considering what so many of his/her brothers and sisters are born into. Please pray for me that I keep that in my mind when I get “stressed” over insignificant, trivial things!
Baby Wallace is 5 1/4 lbs. and measures at 18 inches (the size of a honeydew melon)! And let me tell you, I believe it! I feel like my posture is improving constantly because of my having to stand straighter b/c I feel like my ribs have no room to exist! Sleeping is getting more tricky and I am tired often. My pillow and I are quite good friends! I love the baby movements at the end of pregnancy. It is crazy watching your belly move in slow, rippled movements as sweet baby runs out of room. I am trying my best to treasure all of these movements and feelings as this next month will come quickly, and I know I will miss these moments that “are all mine.”
Sweet Abi is just a treasure. She is so loving with our little bundle – and most questions/situations involve asking how our baby will fit into life. We are thankful – we’ll see how this holds up once baby W arrives!
