These are just some random pictures from a walk in the park we took over the weekend! We had a pretty chill weekend … David and I went on a date night to The Spotted Pig and we planned on seeing a movie but made a rookie mistake of thinking they wouldn’t be sold out (and they were) so I talked David into doing some reflexology with me. We went to Norma’s .. watched football .. had dinner at a friends house .. played at the park .. and not much else! Today I am busy getting last minute things ready for baby girl. We have had her bassinet and some other random things in boxes on our balcony to save space but we are finally busting them out today. I go in tomorrow night and I am so excited!! The good thing about having a scheduled induction is that I can plan everything. I was really stressed about going into labor and not having anyone available to watch Atticus during it all so its nice that I have everything squared away for him. ……………. and that I can conveniently plan my hair appointment … haha.
Last night Atticus kept waking up in the middle of the night wanting to cuddle and I loved every second of it. Not that I won’t be able to do that once baby girl comes but I still am just soaking up my last couple days of having 100% attention on him. It is kind of fun because Atticus was also born on the 18th so they will be exactly 17 months apart. A lot of you have asked if he knows whats going on but I really don’t think he does. I mean, when I ask him “where is your little sister?” he will come lift up my shirt and pat my belly and blow on it (sometimes if I am lucky he will give it a kiss ha) but I can’t tell if I have trained him to think my belly is little sister or if he realizes something is going on in there. Who knows! All I know is I am fully prepared for their first time meeting to be totally anticlimactic. I know I would love for it to be the sweetest thing ever and I am sure it will be in my eyes regardless but I am prepared for him to be 100% disinterested haha. We plan to be verrrrry quiet when he meets her the first time and not get too excited because sometimes that kind of freaks him out and makes him all shy. So we are just gonna plop them next to each other and see what happens. I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!! I honestly can’t sleep at night because my mind races with all these thoughts of having her home with us and spending the holidays together etc.
ALSO – I wanted to post these pics because this coat is the PERFECT coat for if you are pregnant but don’t want to invest in a maternity coat for winter. I mean, my belly is pretttty large and it zips up just fine because of the stretchy sidings. I was looking into some maternity coats for the little bit I would need one but they are honestly pretty expensive for a coat you will wear for a few months or so. So anyways, this is a good option to invest in if you want something you can wear pregnant or not.
