I can't believe we will meet our little guy in just 100 days (countdown set to my scheduled c-section)! I was shocked when I looked at my countdown app a couple nights ago! This little guy keeps me up at night. On average I have slept maybe 3-4 hours a night the last couple weeks. I have to visit the bathroom at least once every hour. I have to ice my back throughout the day. I HAVE to eat cereal and look at Pinterest late at night. Usually at 12:30 on the dot. My allergies are so brutal right now, I can't breathe. But the funny thing is, I enjoy it. It's quiet, and I get to spend time with just Beckham. It's the time he is most active, and I know that I won't be pregnant again so I'm really soaking it all in.
Beckham's due date is Thanksgiving Day. Of course, he will be here before that, but he's our little Thanksgiving Baby! I really enjoyed summer, especially since the heat has been so mild here in Oklahoma, but I am SO ready for fall. The weather, the activities, the FOOD, the multitude of pumpkin desserts, and the holidays with a sweet new baby boy.
The next couple months will FLY by I know, so I'm also trying to enjoy these moments with my girls. Brooke starts school on Thursday and turns FIVE in just a few weeks. The twins start school (one day a week) in September. Tear. They are all so excited....I can't believe how big they are getting to be.
We got a LOT done this weekend in Beckham's Nursery. I wanted to add a few rustic elements to his room, so I found a branch that worked perfectly (and was free!) for the curtain rod. I finished making the bed skirt with stitch witchery, of course. Total cost for the skirt was $5! I love looking in there and seeing it all come together!
Here are a few funnies from the sisters lately....they are really cracking me up with all their questions.
"Did Beckham go poop? You need to change his diaper, he stinks" - Lauren (while going #2)
"Did Beckham take a nap when I did? Oh he's still sleeping - WAKE UP BECKHAM!!!" - also Lauren
"I need to give Kep-bam kisses and hugs" - Lily (sometimes she confuses his name, but she is always hugging and kissing my belly)
"Does Beckham want some of my cookie (as she smears a fudge round all over my shirt)?" - Lily
"Wow mom your belly is getting big, but not too big yet. You look so cute" - Brooke
I love them.
