Tales from a Mom-to-be
Shopping, music and ATVs
My little man was a wiggly worm at our last ultrasound, so we got to schedule another!
This is always super exciting to get an extra little peek at your beautiful baby.
I was able to invite my mom and sister to come along to the appointment. My mom could not contain herself, and my sister was fairly excited as well.
My sister is also pregnant—due any day now—with a baby boy, too! But this will be her third little boy, not first, so for her it was nice to be the supportive sister and not the one being poked and prodded.
My mom is a little bit sad that she still doesn’t have a granddaughter. (Is anyone willing to share their little girl with my mom? She’s a good baby snuggler!) We joke that all we need is two more baby boys and she has an infield to start her own baseball team. She does not find that nearly as comical as we do.
After the appointment, we had a girls’ day and went shopping. That’s trouble—two pregnant ladies and a grandma shopping at a store that has lots of sales and a fantastic clearance section. Thankfully, my wallet wasn’t too harmed. I cannot say the same for my sister’s.
But it’s so hard not to buy things for your baby! Am I the only one who wants to run to the store every day to purchase a cute outfit or crib bedding? Bean Pole yells at me if I even ask to waddle through the baby section in a store. I have a feeling this will not end. I like to shop, and having someone new to shop for more makes it that much more exciting!
To add to the excitement of the week, Bean Pole was able to finally feel Ryder kick for the first time! I was elated. FINALLY I am not the only one who knows he is in there. Bean Pole was a tiny bit freaked out by this. “It’s just weird,” he said.
In addition to the fun baby things going, we got our new piano! I am in heaven and have been playing for at least 30 minutes a day. Ryder also likes the new addition to the living room. While I play, he bounces around in my tummy. Thankfully he appreciates my music and sometimes wrong notes. I hope he will want to play an instrument. Bean Pole, of course, hopes he will take after him and develop a love for ATVs. Regardless, I am confident he will be good at whatever he chooses to do.
