My mom came to visit for a bit last week and just played with Will, washed dishes, babysat, and generally was a wonderful grandmother! She sang songs, played and read with him nonstop, and treated us to delicious meals out. Will is smitten with her. And we are so thankful for all her help.
Will is saying new words every day. I’ve stopped trying to keep up. He pronounces flower “fwowee” and it melts my heart. His car/truck/construction site vocabulary is quickly outstripping that of all other categories. He has a little green dump truck that he takes to bed every night and calls “dump.” Oh the little boy-ness of this little boy.
It’s getting warmer here, finally. It is a miracle. We finally took the plastic insulating wrap off the windows. I’m 30 weeks along in pregnancy and have been wanting to write a pregnancy update, but that will have to wait for another day. The short version: things are going well, except my poor bladder. And all the excessive weight gain. But other than that. The baby is kicking around like crazy, and these weeks are going by fast. Eating lots of almonds and cashews, and salads with soft boiled eggs or sardines or chickpeas on top. With this salad dressing, when I have enough cashews and energy to make it. Drinking nettle and raspberry leaf tea. And seltzer water, oh the seltzer water. Trying to remember the cod liver oil but forgetting most days and just taking my gummy prenatal vitamin and hoping that I haven’t completely ruined this small person’s chances in life by drinking a small, tiny, minuscule amount of coffee most mornings since around 20ish weeks. (It should be ok, right?) Anyway, more soon, including a picture of my enormous self! So stay tuned!
