This week was actually much better than last week — I only had two hormonal meltdowns and despite ongoing discomfort with, well, everything, I’m in a pretty good emotional state.
It’s hot as HECK in Florida, which means that the time I spend outside is extra hot and sweaty. Your big sister and I are still walking to and from school almost every day, and I’m still taking barre classes and doing as much at-home yoga as possible. But I’ll admit…everything has been taken down a notch or two.
I know I say this every week, but we need to get moving on setting up all of your stuff. Your clothes are clean and in the drawer, your crib is set up and we’ve made some progress in general, but your car seat, swing and other furniture are still in boxes from the move. I have one more travel weekend ahead (yikes!) and the following weekend, your Daddy is working but after that, I promise — we’ll get serious!
We have, I think, seriously decided on your name. We haven’t wavered much in the last few months and the more I sit with it, the more confident I am that it’s the right pick. Truly, your Daddy and I are the only ones who know it — we’re too afraid to share it with your big sister, because she’ll tell the whole world!
I am so excited to meet you. I want to know what you look like, smell like, act like and how you’ll fit into our family. I know that you will be welcomed and loved. So stay put for a few more weeks. But then, get ready for lots of open arms and snuggles!
