25 weeks

Somehow I am already 25 weeks along. How is this possible?! Every day I am getting more and more anxious about this baby coming... in good ways and bad. There are days that I can't contain my excitement about meeting this little person who is half me, half LoLo. Then there are other days when I can't seem to keep my eyes open and I think to myself, "I had 10 hours of sleep last night and this is how I feel?? How will I feel with 2 hours??"

Still, things are moving along and I am feeling good. I passed my glucose tolerance test. My belly has gotten rounder. My parents gave me a mother-to-be card on mother's day.

And my favorite moment this week? LoLo finally felt the baby kick. And the baby kicked him in the face as he put his cheek up against my stomach. Now I really can't wait to meet this baby!

The picture isn't great, but it shows how I'm looking these days.

And because I think this is the cutest thing, my mother made a bouquet of mini cupcakes for mother's day and brought them to my aunt's house for our celebration. She is so cute and creative.

Hi Erin! Glad the pregnancy is coming along swimmingly :)

Toward the end of my first pregnancy I COULD NOT SLEEP at night. It was the heartburn and the anticipation of seeing my baby soon. What was she going to look like? How will I know what to do? What is labor like? etc..etc...Those thoughts and questions kept me up all night.

In contrast, I got THE BEST sleep ever with the pregnancy of my second-born. No more questions I guess lol. Seriously though, I would fall into the most comfortable deep sleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. I fantasize about getting sleep like that ever again :)

Anyway, keep keeping us posted! Wishing you a wonderful remainder of your pregnancy, and a happy, healthy baby boy.

You'd be surprised. I've always had sleep issues (not insomnia, just issues sleeping efficiently) but there's just something that happens when you become a parent. Sometimes, you'll find yourself staring at your little one as they sleep and you'll think, "I should be sleeping now," but you just can't take your eyes of of him/her/them.
