This week was bittersweet. Uncle Michael had to go back to Afghanistan on Tuesday and we all went to the airport to see him off. I can’t imagine having to say goodbye to your daddy while you’re so tiny. I can’t imagine going through this process without him at all. Before he left, auntie Em and I took baby duty one night so he and aunt KiKi could get some sleep. As exhausting as it was, I think I really learned a lot and am glad we did it. I love taking care of her and watching her funny facial expressions.
Nonie and I did some more shopping for your nursery and finally found fabric I love…at the local Hobby Lobby, go figure. We found a bunch of accessories for your room so now I just need to get your crib painted and find a dresser. She’s giving us a rocker she used with your daddy and uncle Chris, which I’m really excited us use. I can’t wait to get the room painted and start putting all of this together.
I’ve noticed you’ve been sleeping a lot lately, not moving so much. But when you do, it’s more of a roll or something. I get this big tight bulge on my side, and then you roll over and it goes away. You kick more towards the end of the day and when I get into bed. Daddy like to hold my tummy and wait for you to move. It’s really cute. 🙂
