We’re just a few days away from finding out what we’re having and we’re super excited. Granted, I’m more excited about just having an ultrasound and finally getting a glimpse of the burrito. With Enzo we had 1 or 2 ultrasounds before the big anatomy scan, which is of course more about making sure the baby is developing okay. I’m always nervous during this one as they look at the heart and organs and pretty much hold my breath until I hear them say everything is okay.
As for other things, the house is still coming together, but I actually feel like my energy is coming back even if my sciatic ends up acting up after a day of activity. This weekend I pulled out the crock pot and made a Moroccan beef stew and even made fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp for dessert.
As for Enzo… well, he’s definitely been entertaining. We have our highs and lows, and part of the extra sassiness this week has probably been because he’s been the oldest kid at day care with no one else to really play with since the two boys nearest his age have had Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. They’re supposed to be back tomorrow, though, and apparently they’re both starting to walk now, so hopefully Enzo will have some kiddos that can keep up with him now.
When he isn’t causing chaos in the kitchen… or his bedroom, or the living room, or the bathroom, he’s busy surprising us and acting like a big goof. He is now pointing to his nose and learning different body parts, even though he can’t really say them yet. We’re getting closer to new words, though, and it’s kind of amazing what each new week brings.
Granted, he has his meltdowns, but the laughs and giggles and sweet open-mouth kisses make it all worthwhile. :p I’m also loving that he has a new favorite book almost each week and likes to climb into Mama’s lap to read whichever one it is. It’s been ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear’ for about a week, but I think ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ is giving that one a run for it’s money. Exciting, right?
