tick tock

30 Nov
This week brings me to 6 months pregnant.
I can’t believe that I’m over half-way through with this pregnancy. 
I feel like I just found out yesterday that I was expecting.
Baby Girl is kicking and grooving up a storm these days.
Thankfully, she settles down at night and I’m still able to get a good night’s sleep.
(Except for the 5 times a night I have to get up to pee!)
We have decided on a name (no, I’m not telling)
and it’s fun to talk to/about her like a real person now,
instead of referring to her as “the baby.”
Sam is getting used to the idea of another sister…
although he’s still praying that she will come out a boy!
And Ava, she’s totally clueless.
However, she is very, very interested in her newborn cousin.
And wants to be touching and playing with her whenever she can reach the baby.
So, I’m sure once her little sister arrives, Ava will be all over her!
Speaking of Ava…
she is walking all over the place now
and tries really hard to keep up with her big brother.
Her favorite questions are, “What’s that?” and “Who’s that?”…
questions she asks a hundred times a day!
She also says, “WOW!” about anything that catches her eye.
She has perfected the temper tantrum,
and looks up at us out of the corner of her eye
to see if we’re watching her do something she knows is wrong.
She is obsessed with cell phones and, if there is one in a 20 ft. radius,
she will have it in her hands in 1.6 seconds.

The moment music hits her ears, she wiggles and jiggles like she’s dancing for her life.

And she manages to wrap everyone around her little finger in a matter of moments.

I’m just wondering…what happened to my newborn?

    I hope Sam will realize his very important role of being the big brother to not just one, but two little sisters. It takes a real big, young man to do that job well.

    Does Grandma have to wait to know her granddaughter's name,too? 🙂
