tales of something simple - settling in

i believe

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.

all types of chaos

settling in

So we are just about used to the idea of you.  We don’t think of you as a baby boy or girl yet, just a baby.  We aren’t going to find out what you are, which is exciting and nerve wracking all at once.  We have a lot of clothes with ducks on them, so I really hope you like ducks.  Maybe we will nickname you “Ducky” since you are the first little duckling in our pack.  You already have so many clothes and books and essentials we could bring you home without buying another thing (for a little while anyway).  Daddy and I go to stores on the weekend (when I am not horizontal on the couch, which is 90% of my time when I am not at work wishing I was laying horizontal on the couch) and we find cute little things for you.  I was going through books at a second hand store yesterday and was thinking of you and what we will like to read and how I will remember the exact place I bought each of these items from and I can tell you about it.  How you were only two inches big in my belly and I was already imaging reading to you and helping grow your mind and giving you memories.

We read about you every week, figuring out how big you are and imagining what you must look like (I’m not going to lie, so far you are quite alien so keep growing).  I day dream about what you will look like and what features you will have.  I already think you are a girl for some reason, and I hope you have brown eyes like Daddy and thick cool hair like his, but with my blonde.  I can’t wait to see how tiny you are and watch Daddy hold you.  He has never been responsible for something so fragile and small and I know how excited he is that you will be his first challenge!  I do fear the dogs will jump all over you when we bring you home and lick you all over, and who would blame them?  We have lots of work to do with your canine siblings (cough, Penny) before you get here.

So far in eleven weeks we have thrown up about 200 times, started a new job, flown to and from Las Vegas for a business trip, endured one too many snow storms, quit babysitting (for the most part), had two ultrasounds, and developed cravings for things like pickles and cheese sticks, chips and dip, Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger’s from Wendy’s, gourmet Popcorn (the craving passed by the time it arrived, bummer), eggs (that was short lived with the vomiting), peaches, pudding, creamed corn and pizza.  Needless to say I have just started to put on a little weight :-)

We are going to hear your heart beat on Thursday, St. Patrick’s Day.  Hopefully we will get lucky!
