Apparently when you’re overdue and you skip a day blogging people kind of assume it’s maybe because you’re laboring. Sadly, no. I just didn’t have anything new to say that wasn’t a lot like before (AKA: I’m still pregnant and so I cleaned this and this and I’m still pregnant).
However, I had an appointment on Tuesday and I have good progress, so there’s hope I won’t be the first eternally pregnant woman ever. Hooray!
I actually slept through the entire night on Tuesday night, which felt glooooorious! I asked baby girl to come on Wednesday since I was feeling so well rested but, once again, no dice.
I ran 4 miles on Wednesday and felt great. Actually, felt not-great. Great would be if I felt labor-y after I ran, which I did not. I felt sweaty and energized. So there’s that.
I’m really digging “Timber” by Ke$ha and Pitbull right now. It’s a good song to run to. Do you have a song you’re digging for runs? I always love music recommendations.
I’ve struggled with dinners this week, mostly because I didn’t meal plan at all because I kind of assumed we would have a baby. We do not. So every day mid-morning I think “oh crap, dinner!?!” Dave has suggested breaking out a freezer meal and then I laugh and wheeze “not my precious” in a creepy Gollum voice.
Leo is back to feeling 100% and sleeping normal, which is just all-around fantastic. He’s also talking in much bigger sentences now, which is really fun. You can actually see the words building up inside him and he’ll start stuttering a few out and then they just pour forward in one giant breath. It’s awesome. He’s also really fascinated by emotions, especially sadness. He LOVES finding pictures of sad people/characters in books. He likes to tell us when he feels sad, which is really healthy and great. But he also loves to throw up his hands and scream, “I’m so excited!” or “I feel happy!” He’s a bundle of energy and particular-ness (his blankets have to be just so or he cries) and fun. And he’s getting really tall.
Leo’s new favorite thing is to chase Mosie around the house (“Can’t catch her! Too fast!”). The poor guy tries so hard and he never gets to touch her. At least he thinks she’s playing a game… I think in Leo’s head he and Mosie are best friends. Mosie doesn’t have quite the same view.
I’m honestly running out of things to clean. I’ve done the windows (inside and out) and washed curtains. Next up is the radiators – getting between the slats and under them, which is actually pretty tricky.
We got Leo’s new bookshelf yesterday so I assembled that. In only took about an hour. We love how it looks in his room!
