What I am not looking forward to: Honestly I'm on such a high from finding out the gender and seeing our baby for the first time on ultrasound that I can't think of anything I'm not looking forward to. It's a good feeling.
Being pregnant has added a new dimension to our relationship. When I was complaining about fatigue, she assured me that it would get better in the 2nd trimester. When I talked about how (in the beginning) I didn't think I wanted to do this after all, that I was completely overwhelmed and emotionally not ready to be pregnant and have a baby, she assured me that she felt the same way in the beginning. She remembered the up and down emotional roller coaster of the 1st trimester and it calmed my fears and worries.
It's weird to think that when she was 29, she was pregnant with me, just like I'm 29 and pregnant with my first daughter. It's crazy how life comes full circle and repeats itself. I feel like whenever we have our little girl, I will, for the first time, understand how much my mom loves me.
Week in Review:
We told family in town by wearing this pink bow under a jacket and opening the jacket to reveal the gender. Of course we got it on film. It was hilarious. When my mom found out she is a she, she said, "okay, now I'm going to get really stupid". When my dad found out he said, "that was my other guess!".
To make it Facebook official, I put this picture up. Ehren wore pink on pink to work the next day. Ehren has always wanted a girl. And so has Cozy.
Hello, lady parts!
Cuddle time on mom's belly.
Cuddle time on dad's lap.
We went to Springfield to visit some very good friends of ours. Strangely, this is the only picture I took. Cozy would make a good babysitter, right? Free daycare for us... SCORE!
I look forward to this tree changing every year in the Fall right behind this old basketball goal. And my favorite part? It always coincides with the start of Kansas basketball.
Rock chalk, baby.
