This piece is called “Sage and Empty”. It’s the sixth new piece I’ve created for Clothesline and I have at least 2 more pieces in my mind that I want to create. But after my midwife appointment today I realize why it’s been so hard to be motivated and even get up and around. I guess Tessa (and I) have hit a growth spurt. My pound or two between appoinments was upped to 5 pounds today. Boy I’ve felt it. I can’t complain, even though pregnancy is really easy to complain about. I’ve developed a hearty appetite and a bad peanut M&M habit these days. I feel better walking Josiah to school, with Eden on my back in a sling. I get a pretty decent work out. It’s no bootcamp, but it’s good for me. If you happen to catch a glimpse of me during that jaunt to school I’m a lovely sight to see. Usually in just a little bit more than my PJ’s, unwashed face, sneakers, pregnant belly and a 27lb Eden on my back. She loves it! She’ll hug me like a little koala bear on and off through the walk. And my back is soaked when by the time we get home. Needless to say, I have kinda given up the walk to pick him up from school, it’s a bit much for my day. My midwife Laure asked me today if we’re going to go with the Dec 18th due date, or the Dec 26th. I am planning for a Christmas baby. Merry Christmas to me!
We got the kids bunkbeds yesterday at IKEA. So we’re now somewhat set up for 3 little monkeys jumping on the bed. Yeah, I don’t think they’re totally asleep yet. Eden has been in a crib until tonight and maybe she’s exploring her freedom. Well, I’ll just say extra prayers that they will not be little terrors at school tomorrow.
