Around Here

32 weeks (this was last week, I am between 33-34 weeks now)
 Its been pretty quiet and mellow around here lately.  I haven't had much motivation to do anything, with this belly of mine getting bigger and bigger everyday simple tasks are getting harder.  Let me tell you its tough trying to wrangle a wiggly toddler with a big 'ol pregnant belly. 
 Last week Ruby turned 21 months old
 and was the furthest thing from excited to get her picture taken.
 Apparently she wanted to be beside the chair, not on it.
Ruby is getting more and more interested in the potty!!!  Every time I got potty she comes in and sit on her little potty next to me, though she hasn't gone potty in there yet.

30 weeks

30 weeks, here we are.  
Its just a little over two months, give or take a week or two, before we are finally face to face.  I dream and can't wait for that moment.  
I just ordered the car seat and a few random things for this baby yesterday and when they get here we will have everything we need for the beginning.  We have a girl name and possibly a boy name figured out, but nothing is permanent until we meet this little bean and feel that the name fits.  I really want to dwell on my sweet newborns face and personality for some moments before I set any name in stone.  After we had and named Ruby it took me 3 months to be ok with her name.  I feel we settled and named her to quickly, luckily I love it now though!  I don't want that same feeling with this little babe.
As far as this pregnancy is going, well it could be easily described as uncomfortable.  I really think having pregnancies so close together really does a number on your muscles, bones and joints.  This time around I am having lots of discomfort in my back and hips and my abdominal muscles feel so worked.  I would definitely say I enjoyed being pregnant with Ruby more.  One thing I do love and will always love about being pregnant is feeling the baby moved around in there.  This one does it almost constantly which is great!
