The funny thing about the picture above is that it was taken many, many weeks ago when I was still not even 30 weeks prego. Technically, I haven't gained a lot of weight, but I'm big. I feel big. The baby is measuring big. Definitely my biggest and most uncomfortable pregnancy yet. Please don't think I'm not grateful--I am--but between compression hose for my awesome varicose veins, an extra large belly, a still very physically needy 3 year old and possible gestational diabetes (what?) it's been a challenge. I also find myself vacillating between getting as much done as I can while I can in the form of organizing and purging or enjoying a little extra time to myself in the form of TV watching and chillaxing to the maxing. It's a tough call. I'm also trying to get as much Christmas shopping done just in case this babe decides to make an early entrance. Here's my free advice of the day: Don't bring your kids over to the computer to look at Christmas presents as they will tell you they want that, that, that and that and yes pleaseplease that! and now you're left to figure out which 'that' is actually the one their little hearts will treasure most and which one is most likely to end up forgotten by 2 PM Christmas Day. So yeah, maybe avoid giving them ideas that will likely only end in shattered dreams.
Anyway, signing off early this week. I have some good stuff in the queue, I just can't get to it yet... so hopefully the beginning of next week? Yes the beginning of Thanksgiving week sounds like much better timing. Oi.
While I'm here I do have one question...I'm going to need a new double stroller. The one we have is the kind where the older child can hop on and hop off by themselves (A joovy I think?) which doesn't work for Lamp. I need double that has two seats that children can be buckled into, but still something I can attach a car seat to on one side. Preferably something lightweight as well. Any recommendations? I'm all ears!
