*Note: I’m actually 36 weeks today. All posts will be a week behind.*
I completely dropped the ball again with my weekly photo.
I take my pictures on Saturday morning but since it was Declan’s party day I blanked and ended up forgetting until late on Sunday.
Hence the bright, shadow filled photo.
I swear one day I’ll become a proper blogger that actually remembers to take decent photos.
(See it’s not just me. Apparently my entire family is incapable of looking normal for a photo. In our defense, the guy did tell us to say weird words like “burger” and “ice cream” instead of “cheese”)
As you all know, Declan turned two on Friday and we spent the day together before heading to dinner that evening with Derek, my parents, and my sister-in-law.
Last year we took him to Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour (which is essentially ColdStone on crack) and he loved it so much that we decided to make it a yearly tradition.
He couldn’t stop giggling and giving everyone at the table kisses because he was that excited, so I would say it was a successful evening.
Then on Saturday, we had his birthday party at a place called Pumper Jumpers in Fullerton.
The kids got to spend an hour running from room to room and playing on bouncers, trampolines, slides, etc. and everyone loved it.
I made a decision this year that I wasn’t going to stress details like decorations or food and I am so glad I didn’t.
We literally just showed up with some cupcakes and goody bags and the place took care of everything else for us.
He was giggling the whole way home again and Derek and I gave ourselves a pat on the back for a birthday party of parenting winning.
No matter what I do I feel like I cannot drink enough water.
I keep chugging and peeing, chugging and peeing.
It’s a vicious cycle that I can’t seem to stop or fix.
It probably doesn’t help that we’ve had awful humidity these past few days either.
My mom planned a girls day for me and invited my cousin, sister-in-law, and dear friend to join.
She took us all to get our toes done and then out to a fancy lunch, followed by some shopping.
It was really nice to relax and have some girl time, and it was so special that my mom took the time to surprise me by inviting these women that I care so much about.
She kept joking that she was going to relax me into labor.
Hopefully Bennett will at least wait until I’m full term though!
Bennett really likes to stretch out and roll around at all hell hours of the night.
It’s kind of a bummer because Declan is finally starting to sleep like a normal kid in his own space so I have all this room now but I’m still restless every night.
Pair that with how hot I have been recently and I’ve pretty much given up on sleep all together.
On the plus side, I’ve got tons of time to do super important things, like organize my Pinterest boards.
I had one or two or five cupcakes this weekend.
So that happened.
THINGS I MISS:
I miss being able to get out of bed without it being a full-blown production.
Seriously, it’s like trying to tip a cow over.
THINGS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO:
Seeing Baby B.
We are so crazy close and I’m just really anxious to meet him already!
