Lately I’ve been trying to grasp the idea of having two kids. I have so much love for Charley…so much that arrived so fast and so intense…I have no clue how I will have the same amount for this next baby. I know that my heart will grow more than I will ever know…it’s just hard to comprehend…and I think that’s the beauty of motherhood. I remember before Charley was born…knowing that my life was about to be rocked…but having no idea just how much…that feeling is here again.
And I love it.
There’s a whole lot of love going around our house…
That’s right…I FINALLY started craving cupcakes. Could be a bad thing…but man oh man…that first bite after nearly 6 weeks of no Cupcrazed cupcakes…bliss. Pure bliss.
Charley is really into brushing everybody’s hair she can get my brush on…including the dog. She hasn’t really figured out which way to turn it so sometimes you can be minding your own business and get whacked with the backside of a very large, hard brush.
Yep…we’re still nursing. I have no clue how long this will last during my pregnancy, but I’ll keep going as long as Charley wants. I’m even prepared to tandem nurse once the new baby gets here. I’ve heard that at around 20 weeks your milk supply tends to tank…but we’ll just cross that bridge when it gets there. If she decides to stop then so be it…if she keeps asking…game on.
Charley’s hair is growing at a rapid rate. During her morning shows, I’ll sit and play with her hair. The other day I decided to braid it…and lo and behold it worked. Dear Lord it worked. My next task is to try and actually secure the braids.
I’ve actually got a love/hate relationship with this one. I love seeing Charley grow…but dammit I want her to stay little too.
She’s becoming quite the independent little girl…wants to eat by herself…hold the computer by herself…but even with all that independence she still needs her mama. I love it.
It never gets old. Nuff said.
I can’t believe we’re already halfway through July. It’s been so hot this past month or so, we’ve barely been outside at all. That changes as soon as I start feeling better…which I can already tell will be soon.
Until then…stay cool.
