"Let's play belly bonk and smash the baby." (belly bonk is a game we invented that involves touching our bellies together)
"I'm gonna poop on the baby."
"I'm gonna pee on the baby." (there's a theme here apparently as potty training coincides with my pregnancy!)
"I love the baby."
"Mama, are you and the baby tired?"
"The baby's name is Margaret." (which I sort of like actually!)
"When I'm a big brother, you'll get me rollerblades."
"The baby is coming tonight!"
"When I'm a big brother I'll get a bat and hit a homerun!"
"Give the baby some coffee." (the one time I drink a tiny bit of decaf, he calls me out on it!)
I am hoping to do a few pregnancy updates here along the way, and maybe a few more "Edwin installments" of how he's adjusting to the idea. Although the pictures don't show it that well, this bump is definitely getting bigger, along with the rest of me. This mama is hungry all of the time! Eggs and cheese are my favorite foods right now, but honestly, everything tastes really good! I've been working hard to stay healthy and supplement my nutrition with tea and prenatal vitamins. I can tell a huge difference when I am taking my vitamins and getting enough water, rest, and exercise. I feel very very good right now and I am so thankful! My first pregnancy was something I cherished very much and I didn't know if anything could ever top that, but this time around is proving to be just as magical. Plus, it's not as scary. I know a little bit better what to expect and that is very comforting right now. The main difference is that I am even more excited for what is to come. Some days I would like to skip the pregnancy and go straight to the baby. But, I know I need some time to prepare, so here we go!
