Yeah, we're stoked and a little startled and a teensy scared about this development! We've got another munchkin growing. It's surreal still, since by all reports any kickings I'm feeling are my own imaginings, and I'm not really showing. But I am at 11 weeks, so I know that the trueness of this situation will soon be evident. Sometimes I am thrilled as can be, because we'd previously stated that since we've started a family, we're going for it, one after the other, until we decid to stop. Being that we're old people and such. But other times, I'm wondering what in tarnation I've gotten myself into, since Zoralee will only be a year and a half old and probably a fair handful. Her personality is developing at the speed of light. If you're a praying person, put one in for us that this baby will be chilled and laidback (you know, a baby that likes to sit on your lap, cooing and cuddling and signing to you in baby sign whenever they need to go potty. And also, likes to attach themselves to a binky or favorite blanket or stuffed animal, thereby self-soothing.).
I've had a few little dibbles of nauseousness, but almost not enough to mention. I've been tired, and generally unmotivated to walk or be outside, which is a bugger. It could be due to the RIDICULOUSLY LONG cold snap we've been having here in Anchorage, but whatever the cause, the body needs motion for health, especially in spregnancy, so this hasn't helped the old mental state of affairs, nor the physical.
Our time in Anchorage is drawing to a close. We've got three weeks left, during which my parents will be here for a week (yay!!), my sister for a long weekend (yay again!!), Zoralee will turn one year old, and we'll be packing up the house, solidifying travel and holiday plans, and saying our solemn goodbyes.
Thanks for checking in, though I've been such a sporadic blogger. It makes me glad to keep in touch with you all this way. Sometimes when Jason takes the laptop to school, where there's internet access, he'll pull up all the blogs I read and keep them on the laptop for me to read when he gets home. It's so great! I can't interact and add comments, but I generally know what's up with you, my fellow bloggers.
Take good care of each other!
