Today officially marks the end of my first trimester (according to the What to Expect app.) Thankfully over the past two weeks my morning sickness has all but disappeared. It was a different kind of sickness than I had with Emerson, but still just as horrible. I basically have been hibernating for the past three months, but I’m ready to rejoin civilization. Timing wise I’m pretty happy that I’ll be able to really enjoy this Christmas season, since it’s my favorite time of year. We haven’t been able to do tons of decorating because between the puppy and the baby, things tend to get destroyed. It’s pretty crazy that I”m spending two Christmas’s in a row pregnant. Last year I was right at the end of my pregnancy and was not able to enjoy the holidays because I was so uncomfortable. This year I’m hoping to at least get a tree up, but we’ll see.
A little bit about baby number two, he/ she had a strong heartbeat and seems to be growing just fine. I’m hoping we’ll get to find out if it’s a boy or a girl before Christmas, but this time I’m not as anxious. I don’t think I’ll be that upset if we have to wait until January.
As for Emerson he is very quickly approaching his first birthday. Truth be told I do not feel ready to have a toddler. As much as I miss my tiny little baby Nick and I are loving getting to know Emerson and his personality. He is such a silly baby. He loves to crawl around the house and have us chase him, he is almost always smiling and giggling and he is completely obsessed with peek-a-boo. He has so many toys, but prefers laptops, iPhones, and remotes to any baby toy. He is epecially enjoying ‘helping’ me to type this post. The pictures in the post are from last week the weather was perfect so Nick and I spent the day walking thru model homes and finding different small parks to play in with Emerson.
We have a few fun trips coming up that I’m really looking forward to. Christmas day we’re driving to California to spend some time with my closest friend and help her celebrate her engagement! Then beginning of January we’re heading over to Hawaii for a much needed family vacation. It’s going to be Emerson’s very first time at the beach and I really think he’s going to love it. I am super nervous about flying on a redeye with a one year old so any recommendation and tips would be greatly appreciated!
I think that’s enough for today, but now that I’m feeling better I do intend on posting regularly again.
