Back to the pregnancy thing...I've been feeling just ok lately. Still dragging through each day being just so tired. Julee slept well for the first 4-5 nights in Lily Mae's room but then cut a couple of teeth and hasn't really gone back to normal. She's a bit of a momma's girl so, for now, I'm the only one who can quickly put her back to sleep when she wakes at night. Normally I wouldn't mind, but I'm really starting to be affected by the many weeks of bad sleep. Both girls also had some sort of weird stomach thing over the weekend and it was a big disaster. Sunday afternoon/evening was an unusually terrible night, with a TON of pelvic pressure and lots of Braxton Hicks. I came |thisclose| to calling the midwives, but after drinking water, laying down, and being catered to by my wonderful husband, the symptoms faded and I got some rest. Everything has been fine since, and hopefully it'll just stay that way.
I know this post is dragging on and on. Sorry (not sorry). I can't forget to mention my little soccer player!!! Lily Mae started playing in a micro league on Saturday! She has been SO, SO very excited about it for months - I kid you not. She had talked about it almost daily. I know my girl, though, and being excited about something doesn't necessarily mean she'll have the courage to follow through when the moment arrives. She's brave, don't get me wrong, but she's a little shy and a little bit of an introvert (different things, I know), so I didn't have very high expectations for her first practice. But wouldn't you know....she had a BLAST and had absolutely NO hesitation to participate! I was really, really proud of her and was probably That Mom who went a little nuts cheering and taking a bazillion pictures. Whatever. I don't care. She was proud of herself, too, and ran off the field a few times just to give hugs and kisses to me and Clark for letting her play. She can't wait to play again!! I'm so excited for her to have a good time! (PSA: I do want her to do her best and try hard and learn new skills. I will not be That Mom who pressures her kids to participate in extra-curricular activities they don't enjoy.) And also? SHE IS SO CUTE.
|See? Cutest kid EVERRR.|
