Updates from the Nest

I have been a busy lady, I was able to pick up a few extra hours at work and that has made my life a little more busy. As I swing into the 35th week of pregnancy I feel great today, of course I went to bed at 10:30 ish woke up about 8:30 and only got up to go the bathroom twice. I count that as awesome!!! I have all of my Dr.'s appts lined up for this afternoon, so this morning I am hanging out with my guy Matais, while Luis finishes up the trim in the basement. We are preparing to have our room ready to go by this weekend.

This morning Matias dressed himself with a little help from me. It still amazes me how fast children change and the rate they do it. It is different from baby changing, but all together so amazing. From pretending, to dressing, to potty training (hahahah! we are so not doing well on that but I am not too stressed about it) all in all it is really amazing. Again, I am so overwhelmed by "motherhood". I think the best part is the gift that a child has blessed us with, when I was least expecting it.

As we move into this next stage of parenthood, I am remembering to keep with my motto that I had with Matias, no expectations is the best way to go. I will not let myself build this new person up into anything that she won't be, and let her be herself. That includes how she wants to make her grand entrance into this world.

On a different note today is Ash Wed. I have been thinking about how I can make a big change in my life. I think my biggest weakness is eating out. So for 40 days none of my money will be used to eat in a restaurant. Here is to home cooking! Wish me luck, my supportive husband laughed for 8 years when I told him this so we shall see who comes out on top....

  1. Wow, you are getting close!

    "I will not let myself build this new person up into anything that she won't be, and let her be herself." That is so perfect.

    Have fun cooking.
