This just in, Julia went on the big swing at the park for the first time today. The triumph in this lies in the fact that ever since shes was a baby she did not like swings. Not even her baby swing. So her willingly going on the swings today was a big deal. Hopefully this will stick, because who wants to be the kid at school that doesn't like the swings. In other news, I'm still pregnant!!! I really shouldn't complain because I'm not even close to my due date. And by not close, I mean I'm due on the 31st and it's only the 7th. But I tell you I am so done being pregnant. I have run out of things to do to get ready for this baby. I have run out cute clothes. And I just want to be able to tie my shoes again, thanks to Toms Shoes I don't have to worry about that much though. All in all it has been a very easy pregnancy. I should consider myself blessed. And I do. But I also have the "I'm nine months pregnant and want my body back, can't wait to meet this new little one" blues. Yeah, try putting that into a country song. I also want to be able to play with Julia in our usual sort of way instead of having to say "Sorry, mommy can't be a frog and chase you around the house right now." (Because if mommy were to do that, daddy would have to come pick her up off the floor).
But I know, with experience, that this too shall pass and I will look back thinking how fast this pregnancy went by and look back with cherished memories of the miracle of pregnancy and birth.
Until then, I will attempt to keep myself occupied by walking, walking and more walking.
