The Mommy Life

Yes, my computer is still broken, which means the blog updates are few and far between. Sorry about that - but I'm stubborn and prefer to hold out until I can afford a Mac! :) And it's difficult to update from my iphone, so unless I have access to a computer, blogging has stalled for me. :( I will try to get to it as often as I can, but as you know, my plate has been full these days...
So we are creeping up on week 22 of this pregnancy. Let me tell you, I'm not one of those moms who LOVE being pregnant! It's very weird actually. And uncomfortable. And stressful. Not sure if I would do it again. But I hear you feel differently after the little one enters the world. Hm. We'll see....And speaking of entering the world...Can someone else PLEASE give birth to this baby other than me? Or can I go to sleep and wake up and it's over?? I fear the delivery process. Call me a wuss. I don't care.
It's weird because I'm officially showing now. I can tell I'm showing because I can't stick in my stomach even if I tried! And everyday it keeps getting bigger! It's such a trip! But luckily, the second trimester is WAY better than the first. I'm not in as much pain, I have more energy, and my spirits are in a better a place. But I hear that the third trimester is all downhill! ARGH!!!! Lol. Great. Juuuust Great.
Nicolas is getting bigger everyday, right along with me. He's 2 months now and we have had the pleasure of making him smile and gurgle and laugh. It's awesome :) He had to get his 2 month vaccination shots last week and you should've seen me! It was hard to see him get upset and in pain! Poor baby... But it's all to keep him healthy. It's amazing to see him grow and learn and develop everyday. It's a blessing. It truly is - and we are so thankful to have him in our lives. :-)

The holidays are just around the corner and so is our moving day. We plan to move from South Austin to North Austin just after the new year. The plan is to get into a house big enough for our growing brood. Exciting! I would like to get us settled in and moved with enough time before this baby is due. (march 18th, 2012)

By the way...It's a GIRL! :) Now I have to come up with a name that we can all live with for the rest of our lives! This mommy stuff is HARD WORK! ;)

Life is good...
