I stuck to "Middle of August" whenever someone asked when I was due and that just threw everyone for a loop!
Same with last time "Middle of May" and the time before "End of May".
People just can't handle the uncertainty! I can't count how many times people would pester me for an exact date and I'd stick with "Middle of August" "But what DAY are you due???" It got to be pretty annoying lol! I'd point out that babies come when they want (i.e. I've had a 41w, 38w, 40w and now 39w).
Things are going pretty good here, I had my first day of errands with 4 young children and SURVIVED! Woohoo! haha
We went to play group, then the municipal office (that was hairy), then I lectured the kids and the rest of our stops were much MUCH smoother, including the full grocery shop trip.
I am completely and utterly smitten with baby G. our daily routine is pretty much back to normal, he sleeps (don't shoot me please!) for a 6hr stretch, I nurse him and depending on what time that is (4 or 5am) I'll either fall back asleep for a bit or get up, get him changed/dressed and out to the barn to do morning chores before the other kids wake up. He'll sleep the next 3hrs at the barn and then has a few long naps during the day. Even though he's 10ft away from me at the barn, I just feel this separation anxiety all the time. I just want to snuggle him constantly! It's terrible LOL
Last Sunday we spent pretty much the whole day driving and the entire time, despite him being in his car seat *right beside me*, I just felt this ache to hold him. This has gotten worse with each child!
Anyway, he's eating really well and the kids seem to have adjusted to his arrival without a glitch. My 4yr old just loooovvveeeesss to hold him too and he's big and careful enough that he can walk around with the baby which really makes him happy.
