this past weekend i got to check off my 3rd heartspring event of the year. 3/3. whew. i feel like a new person. i always stress right beforehand thinking NO ONE will show up or that we won't reach our goals, so to be able to finally breathe is amazing.
- we are also still taking donations at www.autismcarewalk.org. all donations go to heartspring's CARE Program and support local families and children impacted by autism - the fastest growing developmental disability in the United States. -
The fam supporting the 7th annual Autism CARE Walk
i usually don't cry at these events because i'm so busy and just trying to make sure that everything is going well that i don't lose myself in the emotion, but i think the pregnancy hormone got to me this time. it was SO AWESOME to see families supporting their 1 in 68. i really can't imagine what the families sacrifice for their child with autism and to see the joy on their faces at this event was just awesome. happy tears.
it's baby time now. 12 really 11 more weeks until the due date and our schedule is packed.
6 days until i host a baby shower for my sister in law and niece
13 days until mother's day
21 days until maternity photos - aka more adorable photos of the bankster
28 days until south carolina for a week
7 weeks until i become an aunt (or sooner, or maybe a tad later)
9 weeks until g's 30th birthday
10 weeks until our 6th anniversary
11 weeks until D-DAY!
so much to look forward to, and so much to do, and i'm itching to tackle the rest of the baby's nursery, a few home projects (BOOTH WILL BE DONE THIS WEEK - EKKKK!!) photos to come.
still need a baby name. 100% on the girl name, but I'm so convinced this baby is a boy. so, therefore, the girl name does no good.
if you'd like to take a stab at the sex and birth date of baby k#2 visit this link! I'd love to see what you think!
have any of you experienced restless leg syndrome (RLS)? HOLY MOLY. at about week 26 this hit me like a mo-fo. every night around 7pm my legs freak out and it's the most annoying feeling in the world. i've been taking walks and playing with banks each evening, so i'm not sure what else to do, but any suggestions would be great!!!
banks wrapped up swim lessons and had a great time. we are thinking swim lessons round #2 and soccer for the summer. now that baby k #2 feels completely real i'm starting to freak out a little about the transition from 1 to 2. i think b will be a great big brother, but i have that terrible feeling that he won't like his mama and dadda anymore. i know that is very unlikely, but i just start having this crazy thoughts and dreams ( like having 1.5 babies - SO WEIRD).
yesterday, he told me the baby was black. and i said, what?? what are you talking about? he said "the baby, it's brown." I was completely confused.
then i took off my jacket, which was black, and had a blue shirt on. he then said, the baby is blue, mom.
i finally got it. he scared me for a minute, and garrett too.
