Tony and I have always known that we wanted to have more than one child and on New Years Day we decided that we will start trying for baby Birdy number two. I was lucky lucky lucky enough to get pregnant RIGHT away. (I can't even tell you how grateful and lucky we feel that fertility has been smooth sailing for us.)
We have been talking to Easton about the new baby and he has been loveingly pointing to my boobs, belly, and sometimes thighs and saying "BABYYYY." He also points to his own belly and says, "baby," but I always remind him that he is not the one going through this difficult pregnancy- I AM.
Difficult? Well, let's just say that I've had a rough start. I've been incredibly nauseaus and eating (which I love so much) has been tough. But yesterday I woke up with more energy than usual and didn't feel nauseaus ONCE. Progress, people. Progress. Poor Tony hasn't gotten very many home-cooked meals in the last two months because I feel so sick at the grocery store that I can barley buy Easton's milk. I have, however perfected the art of Mac & Cheese- which Easton hadn't had the pleasure of eating until about a month ago when I got a sudden craving. My cravings usually contain cheese and citrus fruit (luckily not at the same time). Although what I am really loving right now IS cheese and fruit: cottage cheese and pineapple.
The pregnancy feels different this time- I'm working now, which wasn't the case with Easton. I also have a toddler to look after (which sometimes doesn't go as well as it should), and this time I've felt more sick and had indigestion (YUCK). I have done the "unthinkable" and put TV on for little E, which I had never done before- and now, like so many kids before him he knows who Elmo is AND calls him by name. Whatevs. You win some you lose some.
I'm hoping to get a little more consistent with my posts now that my energy is coming back. So, you'll be hearing from me A LOT about how the pregnancy is going, how Easton is doing, and of course I'll be writing about Frascone life- in general.
PS- I just ordered THIS book for Easton. I hope he loves it!
