Don't be fooled. She is back to her usual chipper self. She missed a nap yesterday and wanted to be held ALL THE HOURS of the afternoon. Also, note Baby Boy protruding from my belly. He's starting to wiggle a bit in there.
I ambled back to bed in the dark with full intentions to fall back asleep, as I usually do. The second trimester has been a lot kinder to my sleeping habits, and the insomnia has all but disappeared. This morning, however, though my eyes were tired with sleep, my brain was wide awake writing mental post-it notes about the many things I need to do today, catching up after a week spent away from home in the hospital.
Faith, and her entire face, love tilapia! Fish for the win!
I fought it for a good hour, willing myself to fall back asleep, but my brain just wouldn't shut off.
Follow-up labs at Children's this morning. Pick up formula from Pediatrician. Call Walgreens about error in formula order. Order baseball uniform. Find out game schedule. Locate Easter baskets. Find a flattering maternity Easter dress (do those exist?). Dye Easter eggs. Baby brunch on Saturday. Clean hardwood. Buy dog food...
Then, naturally, I had to check my weather app to see if today would be a suitable day for the park considering Becks is on Spring Break or would the museum be a better choice? Weather looks promising, and everyone will probably be at the museum. Park it is.
What's going on on Instagram at 4:55am? Facebook?
Also, I'm thinking about donuts. The closest Dunkin's is a 15-minute drive away, or I could opt for the closer grocery store bakery variety. But, a blueberry cake donut sounds soooooooo good. Why am I always hungry? #pregnant
Call financial advisor. Check on tax returns. Respond to a week's worth of emails. Finish TpT project. Purchase baby shower gifts. The dog hair is OUT OF CONTROL. Run vacuum...
Finally, at 6am, I relent. I start a pot of coffee that is probably (definitely) a little on the stale side because I haven't been helping Brandon drink it for the past four months, and pour myself a cup. Which is actually more like milk with a splash of coffee because, you know, caffeine. I formalize my mental list on actual paper, read a passage from the She Reads Truth Lent study (I'm about 40 days behind), and then begin checking things off of my actual list.
"Legos are my life," he says.
Happy Monday :)
PS. Random pictures compliments of the weekend.
One thing not on my list - supplies for the Final Four! Look at me, so ahead at life!
