Sorry for the lack of blog presence this week — my mind has been on nothing but work. It wasn’t necessarily a hard week, just long and was filled with some after hours work.
ANYWAY, so I missed the bi-weekly update this week. Baby J is at about 16 weeks now, and really starting to poke on out there! Baby is about the size of an avocado and may be able to start hearing! I’ve been listening to all types of music — my kid is going to be like me — going to know everything from Louis Armstrong and Springsteen (whom he/she better love — gotta carry on that tradition) to New Kids on the Block to Amos Lee. That’s one quality of mine that I love and want to pass on.
I still pretty much just feel overwhelmed that there’s a human growing in me. In about four weeks, I’m going to be halfway through this, and I feel like I haven’t gotten anything done! I know that I just need to be patient, and everything will turn out okay. Baby will be loved, and that’s all that really matters.
We’ve started to pick out names that we like (find out the sex on February 24th!) and dislike, and our imagining what the nursery will look like. Of course, we can’t actually start on the nursery until the basement is complete, but that should only be another month or so until it’s finished. Month or two. We’ve set a goal to be done by the beginning of May to get that all done, and we’re on track for it.
Work people think it’s a boy…what do you guys think??
