Thirty Five Weeks and Thinking.

Hiccups in my tummy. All the time. I'm going to miss these little hiccups.

Trips to Target with two. How, exactly, does one manage that?

Coffee intake. Massive increase? Is this possible?

Mornings. I've gotten waaaaaay too used to waking up at 7:30. Sigh sigh sigh.

Breast feeding. Do I remember how?

Baby girl. Not a baby boy. They will be so different.

Bloomers. Ah, little baby girl underpants. How stinkin' cute. So new to me.

Brain function. Will it exist after her birth? How does one split attention between two children?

Waistline. Ever? Again? My skinny jeans seem so ... skinny.

Swaddle. Fold up, fold over, fold over, tuck. Um, right?

Where in the world is our car seat base?

Little cries. Little cries that I won't understand. Little cries that will come randomly, sometimes for what seems like no reason at all. I'm so used to big boy cries that come for a reason.

Smiles. Coos. Kicks. Whimpers. Burps. Mmmmmm.

Anxiety. Will I have it again? Will I know what to do with it this time?

Four. The number our family will be. Our family of four. Wow.

Breast pump. Bottles. Pacifiers?

A brother and sister. Can't wait.

A Mom and Dad. Are we ready??

Feeling so unsure and so, so, so excited at the same time.


  1. You will be GREAT!!!! It's a huge adjustment, but you quickly figure it out and it just seems "normal".

    ...and Target with 2 isn't that bad. It was my first outing with carriers/slings work wonders with a toddler and baby for outings.

    p.s. My word verification is "noorm" ;)

    I'm so excited for your family.

  2. the trips to Target do get tricky! i think i had my sisters of friends accompany me for the first few rounds and i can remember thinking "wow! i seriously COULD NOT do this without them!" But it keeps getting easier and easier...not sure if that's a confidence thing or the fact that Lincoln keeps getting older and older, all the while a little mor independednt each day - now THAT'S sad. :( and you know how before you had one you never thought you could do it and somehow you pulled "hat tricks" like 10 times a day? Yeah - you'll find yourself doing the same with two tiny people now! and it feels so much more impressive when you pull it off! :) you're almost there!!!!!

  3. You will figure it all out! I'm worried about the Target trips myself, but I've got an almost 4-year-old so I guess she'll just be hoofing it more, which is her preference! And blooomers are AWESOME! You're so close girlfriend! ;)

  4. I'm glad we are on the same wavelength so very much of the time. I find our mutual excitement/anxiety comforting even if it's 3 states away. Love you friend.

  5. You will be wonderful! I am sure cub will be a good little helper with his sister.
