A little late in the day for a TTT, but hey, better late than never, right?
By next Monday, we’ll be in June. Can you believe it !?! The school year has zipped by.
We’ve been looking at paint colors for Little Dude’s big boy room. The bottom half of the room is going to be green and the top half blue. The colors are going to be separated by a road decal and we’ll be adding some car and truck decals on the road. We’ve already decided on the green that we’d use, but are now hesitating between three blues: Rushing Stream, Yucatan and Perfect Sky.
The little guy has been getting his game on and has been experimenting with yelling, crying and pouting when he doesn’t get what he wants. It never lasts very long though. I’m hoping it’s because he understands that yelling, crying and pouting won’t get him any closer to what he wants.
I don’t know if I have bad memory, but I can’t remember Charles ever moving as much as Peanut when I was pregnant with him. Seriously, I am rudely awoken nightly with well-placed kicks to my bladder and then kept awake by a seemingly hyperactive baby.
Since I’m aiming for a med-free birth this time ’round, I have started to work on a birth plan. I found an awesome resource here and am happy with what I’ve got down on paper so far. I like how the author of the post, a L&D nurse points out that a birth plan needs to be flexible because, well, labour and delivery is unpredictable and we shouldn’t feel as though we’ve failed at birth because things don’t go as planned. Valerie put a great post on the subject earlier this week.
While working in the garden last weekend, my partner found a couple of grub worms. I fed one to each of my geckos. They were very happy for the treat!
In a contrast to the nice weather we’ve been having for a couple of weeks, it was really chilly outside today. Brrr… But I won’t complain, the sun and heat is supposed to come back by Thursday.
I just realized that I’m off next Monday. I think I will try to get an appointment for a massage.
Tomorrow morning, I’m heading to Charles’ 18 month checkup. I’m curious to see how much he weighs now!
