Eli just walked up to me and told me it was naptime. "I want a nap. Nursie nursies, please." When I asked him to give me a minute, he said "Now, mamma!" :LOL It totally blows my mind to think that in a few weeks, I'll have a little tiny person who won't be able to ask for her nursies with words for at least a month!
Totally amazing. I just can't get over it!
It's taken all this time, but I really feel a strong connection with NewBean as my daughter now. I'm looking forward to seeing her and figuring out her name (we've got a very short list, but Mike & I have agreed that we can't name her until we see her), and learning who she is as a person. I no longer think of her as a small, intra-uterine, female version of Eli, and I think that's really contributed to the bonding process. She seems like more of a person to me than ever before and I'm getting to the "excited to meet the baby" phase of pregnancy. I'm definately at the point where I'm ready to not be pregnant anymore, but I am not yet screaming "Get it OUT!!!" like I was with Eli at 33 weeks. :LOL
Father's Day-- I'm hoping to have a baby around then! :LOL Seriously, if I haven't delivered NewBean, I have no idea. I'll ask Mike about it, I have no clue what he wants. He'll probably say that he wants it to be better than his birthday the year I was pregnant with Eli (just over a week before Eli was born) and I can't really blame him for that, as it ended with a lovely night in the ER and me unable to speak for several hours.
: Maybe he'll want some lovin'
and, if I haven't delivered, I'll definately be keen on that! :LOL
I've discovered that I can get hungry if I spend the whole day chasing Eli inside; I stay active and relatively cool. If I step outdoors, I get warm and the appetite vanishes. Today I managed to drink a bit more and I even ate enough that Eli ate all of his lunch! Yay!
QoC-- I so know where you're coming from! Best wishes for a quick and safe delivery!
Greaseball--wow, that was fast! Very cool! I'm glad you like it, I hope everyone likes theirs. They're all similar, yet unique. In fact, if I'd been in my right mind I'd have taken pictures... but I'm kinda not with it. :LOL
