This photograph was taken a week ago, but I haven't taken a new one since. (Can you see little Kiki?) I'm a little sad that Ramon and I don't have any photographs of both of us with my pregnancy bump, but there is still time.
Today wasn't the best day, I have to admit. I was woken by a phone call about my aunt's poor condition after an operation, and then walked into the nursery to find that Boston had peed on a few things. Luckily they were washable. But I was in a strange mood for the rest of the day. Very low energy, and with growing pains in my ever-stretching belly. I tried taking a bubble bath, which did help a little. But some days are just like that, aren't they...you don't mind going to bed at the end of them because you are hoping that tomorrow will be better!
Last night I had a burst of energy and a surge of nesting syndrome, and cooked up three different soups to freeze for after Raffi's birth: Chicken Wild Rice, Cream of Pumpkin, and Potato Leek. I will try to do this a few times before the baby is born. Also planning on baking and freezing muffins and cookies. I just have this itch, and feel like I need to be preparing!
It's crazy to say this at the beginning of the third trimester, but I already feel like I have been and will be pregnant forever. I am getting so impatient to welcome Rafael, to see his face and hold him in my arms. For him to be really, really real!
Here's the latest pregnancy survey. :)
