pregnant mama and toddler

I am having a baby.


Holy crap.

I am three-quarters of the way through this pregnancy. And I just can’t believe it. It sure has felt like one seriously long haul, with all the sickness and unfortunate worshiping of the toilet. But now? I’m getting a little wistful. I want to savor each and every last one of these 10 (or so) weeks.

Also? “Nesting” is my new middle name. I’m up to my eyeballs in baby clothes, and I simply can’t believe that a little person with little arms and legs will actually fit into those clothes pretty soon. You should see the nursery. Or, as I like to call it, the-room-that-requires-rappelling-equipment. Mountains of clothes and gear are everywhere. Photos coming soon!

Here’s what makes me happy at 30(!) weeks pregnant:

feeling the baby jazzercize in my belly
Marc’s homemade pasta sauce
McDonald’s sweet tea
banana cream pie doughnuts from Krispy Kreme (hallelujah)
the look on Small Fry’s face when she feels the baby move
daffodils in bloom
pink trees
making baby lists, prepping the nursery, and generally flying the virgo flag
discovering teeny-tiny peep-toe shoes from Small Fry’s baby days
my new iPhone (I think I’m in love)

What’s on your happiness list?
