We seem to have been hit hard by the stomach flu this year. Calvin and I got it in Montana this summer, Brad and Mia escaped. Calvin, Brad and I got it around Mia's surgery, again she escaped. And now Calvin and Mia are battling it again. Aye, that's a lot of stomach flu. Calvin is much better, and Mia is slowly on the mend, we are hoping that we are done with this for awhile...a long while.
Gummy Bear, aka, Brother #2 was showered upon (well, I guess it was really me) this past Saturday. That was fun, celebrating him and being with some friends and family. It was an owl theme and he got some Owl toys, of which Calvin quickly tried to acquire when I got home. Thankfully they have been saved for Brother #2 and will resurface after his arrival next year sometime.
I find myself slowing down a bit. Today I went and tried on shoes and realized it isn't fun putting on shoes during your third trimester. I'm reaching the stage where it's uncomfortable, but I know it will be all worth it in the end. I'm just trying to get as much uninterrupted sleep at night as possible, thankfully Mia and Calvin are cooperating in that area, I wish my body were too. :)
Brother #2 is a kicker, he wants me to know he is there all the time. Brad got to feel the baby kick a few nights ago and that was a sweet moment for him. Yup, there really is a baby in there, sometimes I can't wrap my head around the whole process, truly a miracle.
That's what is happening on our side of the pond these days. :)
