22 Weeks!

Definitely feeling, definitely looking pregnant now at 22 weeks.   2.0 is moving around a lot….I feel him late at night the most when I’m lying in bed…maybe this is because I’m finally still and don’t have any distractions to worry about.   K has just been able to feel the beginnings of the movement….she says they’re like light taps of a finger.  I find I’m so busy with Lach and the house, that I haven’t paid nearly as much close attention to this pregnancy and connecting with our second son.  Good and bad.  Good because it allows me to not focus on the uncomfortableness of my growing belly….or the veins (the VVV is way better by the way and the new headache is a bad vein in my leg and ugly purple spider veins that have popped up – ugh!), Bad because I haven’t really connected to this new little one.  I know I love him already, but I just feel like I’m neglecting him in some way…does that make any sense at all? I haven’t read him any books or played him any music – though I’m sure he appreciates hearing me read his brother “Raggedy Anne & The Cookie Snatcher” five times in a row every night.  Belly pics have been seriously lacking.  Finally cracked out the camera this AM to take the 22 week belly shot.  Please ignore the toys and “mocha” in the background!

Just A FEW More Projects…

… and then I can get back to blogging! It’s been a busy week.  We closed on the new house April 30th, but weren’t able to move in right away.  As you can see, we are re-doing the kitchen – putting in new countertops, sink, faucet and backsplash.  We’ve painted all rooms but the kitchen and are almost done un-packing.  Still need to hang artwork, photos, etc. and put in our new washer/dryer.  Updated photo of the kitchen SOON, as well as the rest of the place! We love our new home and Lachlan is having so much fun already 🙂  As for baby news, 21 weeks tomorrow (half-way through!!!) and feeling good.  400 IU of vit. e seems to be helping quite a bit.  Still not feeling baby boy 2.0 too much, but last midwife appt (this AM) assured me that he’s moving around like crazy and doing well!! Gained 8 lbs so far and definitely feeling BIG!  More later!!
