Holy moly — baby boy got strong over the weekend! All of a sudden, I can feel him a lot of the time, and when he’s kicking towards the front: you can feel it from the outside!
Well, the hypothetical you anyway. So far nobody has felt it but me.
A is out of the country til Saturday, then home for a night and off again. I meet her in Miami on Tuesday to visit her family there.
As of yesterday, I am unpacked! Whew! This move has been a doozy for many reasons. The house still looks like a natural disaster has occurred, but it looks less hurricane and more tropical storm now.
Last weekend I went home to my family to visit. My sister gave me a SHITLOAD of baby stuff (to borrow! “Do I have to make a list of what I’m giving you so you’ll give it back?”). And then my mom went apeshit in a C.arter’s outlet, so baby boy will at least not be naked for the first year of his life by a long stretch.
I have to admit, though: it’s all REALLY CUTE stuff.
So in terms of baby preparedness…we’re still not. But we’re a liiiiiiiiittle bit closer. August is our big push on the house, since we’ll both have more time.
I keep feeling like a baby is just around the corner! And then my mom says things like “if you’re this big now, think about what you’ll look like at Halloween!” and I think “Halloween! That’s so far away! Good god, I’ll still be pregnant then!?” And then I look at the calendar and realize it’s MID-JULY. How the hell did that happen? Where is summer going? What happened to all the stuff I need to get done???
