Ok- I have an announcement to make...I have officially slowed down. I can barely hold Kellen longer than a few minutes now, I feel like a beetle stuck on its back when I try and get up, I can't tie my shoes by myself, I have to lean on the kitchen sink when I do my dishes, I am tired and VERY uncomfortable. My pelvis hurts, my back hurts, my legs are weak, and I feel like I am in a constant daze because I can't sleep anymore. I am happy and sad at the same time. I am happy because I am getting close to meeting my baby and that makes me SO SO SO happy, but sad because it really bothers me that I can't carry my sweet Kellen around and I can't take him for the hikes that we used to do together. Kellen and I used to go on Saturday morning dates together while Evan was at work, but I am so weak I can't do it anymore, at least not by myself. I had to stop doing my playgroup because I can't chase Kellen around! I am struggling to get my chores done and things done to prepare for when Grayson gets here.
I am really not complaining, I know this all comes with the territory and I get that. But its hard going from an active and fit person to not being able to play with my son like I used to and I worry that its bothering him, that's the hardest part...and I don't like not being able to clean my house!!!!!
In other news, hehe, Memorial day weekend was awesome!!! Evan and I got SOME cleaning done. He's been helping me out a ton on the weekends, and I REALLY appreciate that! Of course I would kill to have my house professionally cleaned right before Grayson arrives, but that just wont happen, so we will tackle the cleaning a little at a time. I know, I am insane with the cleaning, but it really bothers me that I can't scrub on my hands and knees anymore! I've accepted that craziness! Anyways, we we cleaned, and I worked on a project that I've been wanting to do for Grayson. The other day I was looking around at Kellen's room and everything except for 2 things on his walls were handmade, so I wanted to do the same for Grayson. I decided a long time ago that turtles were his theme. I just kept seeing turtles everywhere and thinking about them a lot (when I was pregnant I kept seeing owls and got a different feeling about them when I saw them). Its like my boys were telling me what their totem was. So I listen. I have a lot of projects in mind for Grayson's room, but this is what I did. I took this old ugly picture...
We had a BBQ with Amber, Dave and Hyla on Sunday, that was nice. We love spending time with them. And on Monday I was so swollen, so Evan and I just did a little work around the house and I took many breaks. So, its was a nice long weekend.
Oh, and I am changing the look of my blog a little, so bare with me. :)
