Thinking about: how weird it is to be growing a little person inside of my body. It was weird to me the first time around, and just as weird this time. We had a check-up today and I swear, I'm still shocked to hear that heartbeat and realize that even though I don't feel too pregnant, I most certainly am. At the same time there's so much worry. By nature I'm a worrier, and believe me when I say that being pregnant brings on a whole new set of anxieties. I mean I still get nervous going into these simple check-ups (what if I'm not really pregnant? what if they can't find a heartbeat?). One of my struggles is just stopping my overactive mind and being in the moment because right now is such a beautiful place to be.
Reading: right now I'm on the third book of The Beautiful Creatures series. I blazed through the first time but have been reading this one a lot more slowly, and mixing it up with Everyday by David Levithan also. So far, so good!
Listening to: Lately I've been on the most insane 90s kick. Hank is not impressed! haha. I also realized after typing that out that I think I've written that "lately I've been on a 90s kick" so many times, especially in these posts. So many I should only share if I'm NOT listening to 90s music, yeah? Makes sense. Anyway, my most played album this week so far would have to be Jewel Pieces of You. Ugh, it's so good and I think I've got Henry liking it too. I tweeted about it a few days ago, but while listening to the Jewel station on Spotify, Alana Morissette came on and Henry covered his ears and yelled, "No, no Mommy! I do NOT like this!"
Looking forward to: We got our big ultrasound date today...and April 2nd is the day we find out if we're having another little boy or a little girl. Now I need to just work on being patient for the next three weeks. SO excited!
Watching: So the other night I couldn't fall asleep and decided to see what was on Netflix. Switched at Birth was in my recommended titles so being that it was an ABC Family show (my favorite) I figured I'd give it a try. And guess what? Surprise, surprise, I love it. This network has not let me down yet! Have you seen this show? I'm about halfway through Season One because for some odd reason there are 30 (!!) episodes in it.
Making me happy: spending this week at my parents' house where it's in the high 80s and 90s! Ah! I can't wait. Swimming laps, Nanny doing okay, Henry and his funny little sayings, Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Luna Bars in place of Girl Scout Samoa Cookies (taste the same and so much healthier), new friends, Tom Petty and the song Wildflowers, sunshiney-outdoors time, chalk art on our driveway, planning our first garden, making plans for summertime fun with friends, and seeing people I love in love. Nothing better.
