Me and Mine - July 2016

The Me and Mine Project

July has disappeared so quickly. I honestly don't know how we've gone from June to it being August tomorrow. Perhaps the realisation that we have only 3 months before the baby arrives, with a to-do list that is growing longer, has made time speed up. Everything always goes quicker when you have lots to do.

It's funny to think that we probably only have two more Me and Mine shots before our family increases to five.

28 Weeks - Heading into the Third Trimester

Ee, the aches and pains of pregnancy.

It's not all glamour, you know!
28 weeks bump
28 Weeks Bump
I get cramp, frequently, and not just your run of the mill nighttime leg cramps. I get cramp in my right bum cheek.

Siblings - July 2016

The Me and Mine Project 

As we get closer to the new baby's arrival, I look at these two and see them getting bigger and bigger. The age gap doesn't seem as great as it has before. They can play make-believe games together, and M can join in properly. It makes me all the more aware how different life will be with a baby in the house again, and how old the girls will both seem.
With M's speech and language so clear and developed, I often find myself forgetting that she is still so young. 2 years and 8 months. But because she can hold her own in a conversation I often expect her to understand much more. I think B finds that difficult too. She doesn't always understand why M isn't behaving the way she wants her to, and I have to remind her that M is still so little.

25 Weeks - The Wall

I've reached exhaustion point.

Hit the Wall in this Pregnancy Marathon.

And it can only get worse.

I'd dream of sleeping, if I could only nap!
