For the last 2 or 3 weeks all I can think about is how dang tired I am. I mean, can't stay awake. Asleep before my husband and daughter...needing afternoon naps...just drained. Like the first trimester returned coupled with kicks to my internal organs...including my suddenly nauseous stomach.
But tonight....man. I can not wind down. Hubs fell asleep about 3 (maybe 4) hours ago.
In those 3 hours I have:
-Eaten about 3 slices of banana cake. I'm estimating because I sort of destroyed it this afternoon packaging up most of it to take to my hubs shop. I basically strolled out into the kitchen at midnight and ate the scraps off the cake plate with my hands. It was like carnage. A wild woman, with fresh kill.....
Did I mention I can really eat lately?? I mean really eat. My husband gave me the last 2 pot stickers tonight (we usually split them) saying something about how I probably want them more than he does... But there was fear and horror in his eyes.
- Oiled my belly (no new stretch marks so far! yay!)
-Watched the alien in my tummy create warped waves in my abdomen. Think he might be turning...hopefully head down..... That or practicing for future sky diving acrobatics.....
- Played a couple rounds of Bingo Bash on my Ipad. You can only play a couple rounds before you run out of chips....and I refuse to pay real money to play a bingo app.... Yes, I am an old lady who enjoys a good game of bingo.... judge away.
- Read a few blogs. Had a few laughs.
- Watched a couple sappy Valentine's movies on Netflix. I have no idea why I'm "girling out" lately. All I have wanted to watch is salacious television and sappy chick flicks. It's really not like me at all.
-Ate some cheese.
Anyway....I guess I'm just up. And thinking. Maybe because it's getting closer to baby time. I decided to thumb through my phone at some old pics. I mean 4+ years worth of photos. Reminiscing about where I was, who I was, around this time with Sophie on the way.
8 months pregnant with Sophie. Don't you just love my "I'm 26 and all into bathroom mirror Iphone photography" pic? I was the master at bathroom mirror phone photos make no mistake....
Sophie's Nursery. My mom sewed all the crib bedding (well except for the sheet). The canopy and all. And no, I didn't let her sleep in the crib with all the pillows, and I took the canopy down. But I really wanted it to look super pretty before she arrived.
She still uses the same bed and bedding that's on the twin bed. It's classic y'all.
Baby girl. All cute and pink and healthy. 2008
I don't know that he's ever slept this well since....
It all goes so fast!
Ah just stuff....and memories. Maybe I'm just getting anxious because I have like 6 weeks left (or so). Maybe I just feel completely unprepared. Or totally ready. Or both.
Either way I need some SLEEP! Elusive sleep.....
Maybe I should watch a good old black and white that I've seen a million times and play a round of solitaire or two. That should work....I hope.
