I don’t make money out of blogging so it’s easy to skip a day or two, or a month or 6 months. Ha!
I realize I haven’t even written anything down about baby number 2 that is on the way. Due in 5 weeks and I am a surprised I have gone this far. Desmond was born at 30 weeks and today I hit 35 weeks with baby girl. It’s pretty surreal to have another child, a girl and be this far along. From the day I found out I was pregnant, it was like I have been waiting for something to go wrong. I know it’s not right to think that way, but if you have experienced what I have, you’d understand.
Being pregnant during the summer has been a little tough since Seattle has been having a really hot one this season. Makes me think of all the mom’s in the Philippines who are pregnant any time of year. Gosh! So hot! I’m happy that Nick got us an AC and it has made it easy to function around the house.
Des will be a kuya (older brother) very soon and we constantly have conversations about his baby sister that he will meet soon. He’s excited, I think, and has been kissing my belly and saying, “Mommy, I love baby sister.” Super sweet, melt my heart moments but I do wonder what happens when she’s finally here with us crying her heart out. I hope Desmond still says the same thing.
As for squeezing into our 2 bedroom apartment, I don’t know how it’s going to be, but I’m sure our family of 4 will figure it out. I have lots of thoughts, fears and excitement brewing within me and yet, I still can’t believe I am this far along and pregnant.
Life is going to take us on another challenge. I know there will be difficult days but I trust that the happy ones will always outweigh the tough ones. Thank God that I have such an amazing husband, father to Des and soon our baby girl. So happy to be in the same team as Nick.
Let’s see how this goes.
