Hey ya’ll. I cannot believe that we are already 11 days into the month of June. That means in just 3 short weeks, I will be welcoming my second daughter, Emaleigh Michelle into the world. I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that our family and life is about to change in a such a HUGE way. In the meantime, I am keeping busy cleaning the house, buying last-minute baby supplies, and soaking up every possible second with my husband and Joycie. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for blogging but I thought it would be fun to share what’s going on in my world, currently:
Current books: Nothing! I would love to be reading something but every time I attempt to read I find myself nodding off for a nap. (Can you say pregnancy exhaustion?) I am hoping to get back to reading after Emaleigh is born so if you have a great recommendation for a “must-read” leave it in the comments.
Current music: The musical styling of Joycie. My spunky 4 year old is singing her way thru life. I love to listen to the various songs she makes up as she navigates her way through the day.
Current guilty pleasure: Naps – every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
Current nail color: Plain Jane
Current drink: Water- all day long!
Current food: Plain Greek Yogurt and Strawberries
Current favorite show: I have been so busy with work, finalizing details for Emaleigh’s arrival, and yes, the duties that come with harvest season on our blueberry farm that there hasn’t been a lot of television watching. Do the NBA finals count?
Current wish list: A new cell phone. My beloved phone died at the end of May and I’ve been using a loaner from my sister-in-law. I am eligible for an upgrade on the 16th, but I can not decide what to get. Recommendations are welcome!
Current needs: Nothing for myself. Still need to purchase a crib for Emaleigh, a few sleepers/nightgowns for her, and whole lot more diapers!
Current triumphs: Having 95% of my major project at work wrapped up. I am at a place that if Emaleigh made an unexpected arrival, my co-workers could pick up without any lag in service!
Current bane of my existence: Being bone-achingly tired all the time…..and NOT being able to sleep thru the night. Between a million trips to the bathroom, leg cramps, and being HOT, I’m waking up every hour each night (maybe that’s the reason for my weekend naps)
Current indulgence: Green Apple Slush from Sonic!
Current blessing: My family – a husband who is picking up a lot of the extra housework as pregnancy progresses, Joycie who is an absolute delight and makes me laugh every day, knowing that Emaleigh is healthy, and wonderful parents and in-laws (as well as sisters, brother in-laws, nieces/nephews, aunts, uncles and Grandmothers) who are always willing to pitch in a helping hand.
Current outfit: Cotton sundress. It’s HOT, HOT, HOT and I am hugely pregnant so dresses are my best friends these days.
Current excitement: Knowing the exact date that Emaleigh will be making her grand debut. July 2nd !
Current mood: Happy and a bit nervous. My life is sooo full but I know there are a lot of little things that need to be done in the next 3 weeks to prepare for our family of 3 to become a family of 4. I am trying to slow down and just enjoy the moment. I am reminding myself that if something doesn’t get done – it is no big deal. As long as we are all healthy and safe, then my life is blessed.
What’s happening with you, currently?
