Just Some Thoughts

I was trying to take a nap yesterday. After about 10 minutes, I woke up to the phone ringing. I couldn't go back to sleep because I couldn't stop thinking about eating a peanut butter & jelly sandwich. Sad.

I had a delicious veggie sub for lunch today. I'm sitting here contemplating making another one.

I'm not a vegetarian.

The first three thoughts are about food and I'm holding back.

I just got some really cute burp cloths off Etsy. (These aren't the exact ones I got. The beauty of this store is that you can just pick and choose which fabrics you want. I got some for gifts a couple for myself!)

I can't wait for May. With it comes my birthday, Mother's day, a camping trip, our family beach trip, and the wedding of some really good friends! Oh, and my blood glucose test. How could I forget that?!

I'm in a phase of pregnancy where I'm not sleeping well. Although I'm usually awake and back to sleep before this once or twice, something happens around 3:30 a.m. that wakes me up every morning. Maybe it's just that I have to go to the bathroom....

I lost a small diamond from my wedding band. My rings, since they're saudered together, are at the jeweler for the diamond to be replaced. Now I'm paranoid that everyone thinks I'm a single, pregnant mom of a toddler.

It won't be just Bob, me and Sam much longer. That makes me a little sad. That, obviously, means it won't just be Sam and me hanging out during the day much longer. That's gonna end real soon and it just makes me kinda sad.

My dear sweet Greta how well I remember when Laura was about to join our little team. Your Mom felt the same way. But guess what, it wasn't long before we wondered how on earth did we ever get along without YaYa.

Your heart for your husband and Sam, and the sweet times that you and Sam have one on one almost brings tears to my eyes.

What a wonderful, wonderful blessing it is to be your daddy.

I love you, Poppa

I know exactly what you mean about the wedding ring thing. I REFUSED to take mine off, regardless of the fact that my finger was really swollen too much to be wearing it. I DIDN'T CARE.

I'm going to cry reading that comment from your dad - how sweet! And, I completely agree about feeling the same way before Graham was born. Now, I couldn't picture it any other way. We do still have our days of me being frustrated I can't devote as much attention to her, but then there's sweet little Graham. And, she loves giving him little hugs and kissses, too. So, he just fits right in.

I understand the sadness you feel when thinking of the one on one time you'll lose with Sam. When I start to feel sorry for myself that we can't just have another kid I remind myself to be thankful for this awesome time I have with just Shiloh.
I'm sure, though, that in no time it will be hard to remember life without your new little guy. Just like I'm sure it's hard to remember a time without Sam.

I've been feeling the same way lately. I love having our little family of three (well, four counting Layla :)), and I'm not sure how the newby will fit in yet. I think it's normal to mourn the loss of your current "normal" while looking forward to the "new normal" at the same time.

i'm feeling the same way, in a sense, about adding a new addition. it's weird to think about not just have eric and i anymore. that just sounds selfish, though. yours is much sweeter ;) i am praying for you!

what a fun month may is! :)

your dad's comment made me cry.
