Not going to lie, this day light savings thing totally messed with me and the days have felt 3 hours longer to me! I love when a day is just so amazing it flies by and I am left wondering where the day went. I sometimes really hate days that feel 72 hours long. David is on a quick trip to a football game so this morning I took the boys out on a walk and planned to just wander Central Park to kill a couple hours til A’s nap time. One thing I love about living in NYC is being able to take Atticus into Central Park and let him walk wherever he wants and see where we end up. I could do that for hours on end and just watch him run around.. that is when I am most happy… and I think he is too. So today he decided to take a new route and we ended up in the most dreamy spot ever. It was soo quiet, no one was around and the leaves were bright red and covering the grass. I love quiet areas so I can let Chauncey off the leash and just let him run around so we stayed there for a couple hours then headed back to let A take his nap. After his nap we went back to that spot and stayed there til the sun went down and it was honestly such a perfect day. Nothing but happiness which is just what I needed! Those two wrestled and cuddled on the blanket, Atticus threw leaves for Chauncey to catch, he played his harmonica, and they were just soooo fun to watch. At one point they were chasing this squirrel in circles around this really wide tree, the squirrel wasn’t going up the tree just around and around and around haha, it was like he enjoyed them chasing him! I was a little bummed I didn’t catch it on camera because I feel like it would have been one of those Funniest Home Video type of videos but it was too hilarious, Atticus and I were cracking up hysterically. We got home and facetimed David, ate popsicles in the bath together after dinner, and now he is fast asleep and I am just feeling really grateful he is mine.
Anyways, I am not in labor (obviously) for those who thought I was 🙂 but for an update, baby girl has turned and is now head down (yay!!!!!) and I am 3 cm dilated! I keep having contractions, but not the serious kind yet. I have been going to spin classes almost every day to try and keep the contractions coming. She is measuring 41 weeks and is already over 8 lbs according to my most recent ultrasound measurements! (she literally looks CHUNKY in the ultrasound ha!) This is bigger than Atticus was measuring at this stage and he was 9 lbs 5 ounces when I had him so not going to lie I am hoping she comes in the next week! I would really love to enjoy the newborn stage a LITTLE longer. Over 9 lbs is just such a big baby lol. I went to my friends house the other day to see her 1 month old and she said she is 9lbs 2ounces so when I was holding her I was just in shock that Atticus was even bigger than that when he came out of me.. haha sometimes it is a little mind boggling. But I keep having dreams about her and I can picture exactly what she looks like… or at least what I think she is gonna look like. It makes me soooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!! Until then I am enjoying every moment with my sweet Atticus.
