Evelyn is very excited for her Baby Sister and loves to talk about her. She has been with me to two check-ups and likes to hear her heartbeat. Sometimes she will lay her head on my stomach and say she can hear her. One day she even saw her through my belly button! ;) I think she has a pretty good understanding of what is going on, considering she's only two. One night we were getting ready for bed and she asked, "Mama, who put that baby in your tummy?" I was shocked! Just a few nights later, she asked if the baby is eating in my tummy and what she was eating. Evelyn is sure she is eating chicken nuggets and "mac-ee-roni and cheese!" She also wants to know if the baby can grow in her tummy for a while when she's done growing in my tummy. She is excited for the baby to be done growing and come live with us. She has plans to kiss her, hold her on the couch, give her a high five and tell her "I love you Baby Sister!" Most importantly, she is excited that Mum and Pop are coming when the baby is born!
My body definitely feels the affects of growing a baby and taking care of a VERY active two year old! I'm thankful for my chiropractor and look forward to my visits. Everything is looking great with the baby and I'm growing right on track. My most recent blood work came back better than normal for being pregnant, which is a huge blessing!
We are excited for summer to be here! I finished up baby-sitting last Friday and we have big plans for the Summer. We are starting off this week with potty training! Chris' family will be coming at the end of the week and we will be heading down to the Keys next week. After that, a friend from home is coming to visit, my sister is coming, we're staying several days at a resort in Orlando, a church meeting in July, and a few trips to Disney! We're also still hoping and praying we will be buying a home in the next few weeks. I know the weeks will fly by and it won't be long before we're enjoying our new sweet girl.
