a bad case of pregnancy brain

Life has been oh so good to us lately.  Calm.  Peaceful.  Although, my brain has literally fallen out of my head.  While going to lunch with a friend today, I couldn't carry a full conversation with her while I was driving.  Doing those two tasks seemed next to impossible.  We laughed about it.  See, she has two kids and totally gets it... and me.  Which is nice.  

I've spent many nap times sitting down and staring aimlessly at the wall for 2+ hours, simply because I can't remember what I should be doing or what I want to be doing... so I sit there.  You other mothers out there know exactly what I'm talking about, right?  Also, my body has decided to completely deprive itself of sleep.  The other night I went to bed at 1 am after spending hours on a seemingly important task {aka a photobook for Sadee} and promptly woke up at 5:30 am... wide awake.  On top of having only five and a half hours of sleep, my body refused to take a nap that day and was totally fine just wandering around the house, absentmindedly putting random things away.

Bodies are strange... amazing things.

Needless to say, at almost 37 weeks, pregnancy is treating me well.  And while I complain a lot to the hubs, it's always about silly things - like using the bathroom constantly, or not being able to keep my stomach full for longer than 20 minutes, or not being able to sit or stand easily.  I'm sure many people would {my family} like more updates, but there's not much to tell.  I'm growing a child inside me and it's uncomfortably wonderful.  What more really needs to be said?  I'd tell you that Sadee is really excited to be a big sister, if she knew what was really happening.  She has learned "baby brothers" name and asks for him often.  She has been practicing changing diapers and feeding her dolls.  And she has promised to read to him, sing to him, and teach him everything she knows.  She'll be a good sister, mostly because she is just a good girl all around. 

We're excited to meet this little guy.  It's hard to imagine what life will be like with two babies, but we felt that way before having Sadee.  Life is definitely better with her, so I imagine we will feel the same way.  The next couple weeks will involve some planning, but probably more empty hours staring at the wall.  And any posts between now and when the new baby arrives will probably be random and scatterbrained, just like this one... because that's just how things are now.

Here's to another 3 weeks of pregnancy... wish us luck!
