I’m back!

…18 months later. Since my last post (when Brooklyn was 11 months) our life has transformed week by week and month by month. Brooklyn had an awesome 1st birthday party (Winter ONEderland), began school (Primrose School at Hope Valley Farms), had ear tubes placed (around 15 months), done lots of learning and playing, had an epic 2nd birthday party (Princess Party at Little Gym), and found out she was going to be a big sister!! Something about the loneliness and boredom of pre-baby maternity leave has brought me back to blogging, which I want to do a better job of keeping up with this time around.

Current Happenings:

Maternity Leave Day 2– Day 1 was filled with pampering, playing, and a long walk — already has me desperate to deliver. I decided to stop working a little earlier than I did last time because I haven’t been feeling so hot, but of course now here I sit with baby still cooking inside. I am trying to take advantage of this *me* time (Brooklyn is still going to school for most of the day) but also can’t help but obsess over getting this show on the road. I still have 9 days to go before my due date (April 21st) but am really hoping that this little girl will make her appearance before then. If not before, then certainly no more than a week past my due date since I am trying to avoid being medically induced. While we wait for Miss Eleanor Frederick Winslow to make her debut, here is a little of what we have been up to.

  Getting ready for Mustache Monday at school! Clint bought B a new step stool, which has somehow quickly taken her from a dependent toddler to independent kid. Slow down time!

  Since there is no rush to get out of the house in the morning, we are embracing a few extra books and taking a little longer to get ourselves ready.

 B is not the biggest fan of baths these days, so we use bribery at its finest. Who wouldn’t take a bath for a little ice cream treat?!

   37 week belly bump — I am currently at 38 weeks, 5 days.

  Shoe shopping! B LOVES her black and pink Nike’s so it took a ton of convincing to get her to pick out a new pair. 45 minutes later (thanks to a very patient Stride Rite employee) we left with not 1, but 2 pairs of shoes!

This girl LOVES Playing with her cousins! There is usually a lot of yelling, laughing, and a whole lot of love.   Today was Team Spirit Day — she chose the right colors 😉

Rare sleepy cuddles — soaking up every minute I can with my little girl while she is still my only child.
