My blog friend Carissa has been hosting this party for weeks now, and I am finally getting my act together in time to join in!
1. I still have phantom baby kicks. In the exact same place I first started feeling Luke. I know they’re phantom because I’ve had them off and on for the past 6 months, and I’ve taken two
ridiculously expensive ClearBlue tests because nothing but a clear “Pregnant” or “Not Pregnant” will do when you have an extremely high-maintenance 6 month old and your doctor has expressly ordered you not to get pregnant before a year since it could be very dangerous for your incision. It freaked me out in the beginning, but now it’s normal life. Does this happen to anyone else???!!
2. I was eating salad the other day and I thought about how vinegar is salty without being salty and then I thought about Psalty the big blue singing book thing from the 80s (this is how my brain works all the time). Remember him? We would totally listen to all of the tapes as kids. I even had a Psalty Bible. I was preeeeetty awesome. “I caaaast all my caaaares upon Youuuuuu……” :)
3. I am ridiculously excited that summer is here. I feel like I kinda got gypped out of my summer last year since I worked til June 10th, was hot and uncomfortable, then had a pre-birth overnight hospital scare (long story!), then had Luke 12 days early, then spent the rest of the summer trying to recover from my c-section, suffer through failed breastfeeding and pumping, and take care of a baby who had days and nights all mixed up. But you already knew all of that. :) This summer, I say BRING IT ON! :)
4. Something very exciting happened in our lives this past week and I can’t wait to share it with all of you soon! (Although my FB friends will find out sooner…. :)
Happy Monday! It’s my grocery shopping and CVS day – off to get those deals! :)
