You guys we officially have cleaned out our closets and dressers and every drawer in our apartment!!! This was a major accomplishment. You know when you are mid deep clean and everything is a DISASTER??? Well our tiny apartment looked like it got robbed and then a tornado went through it. Then I started to get really bad contractions, which I never got with Atticus, so I was freaking out a bit that I would go into labor when our apartment was torn apart and come home to a disaster ha! Luckily I didn’t. We cleared out so much stuff we have a completely empty storage bin AND two empty drawers.. which may not sound like much but if you live in NYC maybe you can realize why we are so excited about that! We were freaking out and joking like “WHAT ARE WE GOING TO PUT IN OUR EMPTY DRAWER?!” Options are endless, really. Just kidding but seriously space is so limited here.
And it is middle of the night as I write this so before I forget, loved your feedback on the closet sale! I have a few bags of clothes and shoes I will sell after the baby comes and we get settled in with her, etc. We will donate everything to charity or a local homeless shelter.. still deciding and looking into different options but I will keep you posted on when we do it! I was going to try and bust it out this weekend but we had so much to do it didn’t end up happening like I had hoped.
The baby is still breech unfortunately so I have been trying different exercises and stretches.. pretty much anything anyone has told me + everything my doc told me to do. Someone this weekend was telling me they have had friends who did handstands in the pool and it turned the baby haha so might as well try?! I am going to a Chinese herbalist this week that my doctor recommended and he is going to try a few things and do acupuncture. I have the option of doing an ECV but I have been reading a ton about it and it sounds like it makes the baby really uncomfortable?? So I keep having a bad feeling about it.. have any of you ever had a successful experience with that? The more I think about it the more I realize I don’t want a c section for MY own selfish reasons which is silly because I just want this baby girl to be comfortable and get here safe. So if it has to be a c section then I am all for it.
This weekend was supposed to be super amazing and then ended up not really being that great ha. I would say about 95% of the time Atticus is happy and/or content and the 5% is when he is too tired or is just having one of those normal 16 month old moments (or hour). But on Saturday he just had a completely off day, the whole day. He was just not happy and would cry no matter what. It was really unlike him and we tried doing all of his favorite things to cheer him up, like taking him to the park to chase squirrels and everything. He had his happy moments and SOMEHOW we caught a couple of those on camera (that family selfie was taken while hunting out squirrels..) but dont let the photos fool you, he was not a happy boy most the day. We finally went to the ice cream store and got ice cream sandwiches and just let him go crazy with it. He probably ate like two bites and mostly just held it and squished all the ice cream out and enjoyed everyone at the store thinking it was adorable haha. I didn’t even care at that point – it was like whatever makes you happy kid! Today he was back to his normal self and we went to church, did lots of cuddling, and went to a festival in Harlem with friends.
Hope you all had a good weekend! xo
