I know. I haven't been faithful this week with posting. As you know, I've been visiting my MIL as she's recovering from surgery, and have been so busy. I have tons of pictures to share soon of our time here. We've been able to do a few small local things that don't require much getting around and I've seen so many great friends and family in my few days here. My sister surprised me with a special overnight visit this weekend. It was so much fun to catch up again. We stayed up until 3 a.m. talking and laughing, but I definitely felt it the next day. Being in my 2nd trimester and having a 19 month old wake me up in the morning makes those late late nights a little different now. I have to say that after this trip I am completely exhausted and am looking forward to heading back soon. It's the good kind of exhausted though--you know the kind that comes because you've filled the time with so many fun moments.
I've learned that life as a single parent is hard!! I'm thankful that I have a great husband that helps out with K every chance he can. After this trip I appreciate him even more! I'm hoping that once I get back he'll let me have a late-sleep-in morning (hope he's reading this;-) BTW, the baby bump is growing due to all the great food I've been eating and the irregular exercise I've been getting while gone--missing belly pictures will be up soon. AND, in just a few short days until we'll find out the gender!!!! I can hardly wait!!! So, I'm off to bed a little earlier than the last few nights (though still much later than I should) in hopes of catching up on some dearly missed zzzzz's.
