Tired. Always tired.

I'm really friggin tired. Like, REALLY tired. Like fall on your face, fall asleep at the wheel, drift off while sitting on the toilet tired. And all I seem to do is complain about it. "How are you?" people often ask me these days. "I'm doing really well. But I'm tired." Everyone assures me it's to be expected and I'm sure it is. But wow. I have not experienced this in my life...at least not for long periods of time.

But, I am actually doing really well! I'm excited and happy and a little in shock too. I still forget sometimes that there will actually be a baby in our lives in the next couple of months or so. And not just a baby...but a baby that will grow up!! It's all so very exciting. I have so many hopes and dreams and well wishes for this little one. I want him or her to have every possible chance at reaching their highest potential. In everything they do. It's a strange feeling to know that we will be completely responsible for this little human. I feel so honoured and so deeply, deeply grateful to have this opportunity.

30 1/2 weeks now.

The Final Stretch

I'm officially into the third trimester! Time is flying by even more now. It's very hard to believe that a baby will be part of our lives in about 3 months! We have most of what we need. We are waiting to pick up the car seat even though we already know what one we want. I think that's about all we are missing at this point. Oh, and we need to pick up the home birth supplies in the next couple of months - no huge rush on that.

The renos have been going on for a week now. The major work is done so the next week should be finishing up smaller jobs and getting the painting done. Yay!
