In the blogging world, trends often happen. Sometimes they’re centered around holidays or special events, sometimes around DIY projects, sometimes around opinions or ideas or current events. Sometimes they just happen.
Recently, this “Currently Lately” theme is one that’s cropped up. And, though I don’t always follow the trends, or more honestly, sometimes I’m late to them or overwhelmed or it’s just not the time for me, this is one that’s not far off my regular base.
I enjoy updating you all on what’s going on in our lives and what things I’ve been up to lately, so without further ado, here’s my current happenings.
Reading: Many borrowed library books for Baby Boy, Speak Now: Marriage Equality on Trial, crafting books for ideas and inspiration, and blogs. Of course, blogs. There are so many great bloggers in my Bloglovin’ feed.
Planning: Lately, it’s all for Baby’s arrival. We’re also going on a little a trip to see out of state family and our newest niece! Plus, more time in the water…
Stressing: Exercise and water are Huge focuses for me. Transitioning Baby Boy onto his own mattress. We haven’t started and really need to.
Wishing: I’m all about wishing that Turtle Baby’s arrival is more spiritual/emotional and without stress immediately following, than it was for me with Monkey Boy. Also, that there was a closer lake we could dive into more frequently….
Feeling: The annoyance of my pregnancy induced carpel tunnel, strong, confident, healthy, and happy. And, definitely Turtle Baby’s daily and harder kicks as s/he plays and grows.
Listening: To the soft breath of Baby Boy sleeping, the chirping of birds.
Thinking: Oh, when do I ever stop. I think about Turtle Baby and the wonder of having this opportunity to bring forth another child. What the changes in our family with a second child will be like. I marvel at my motherhood journey, and my body’s accomplishment and breastfeeding Turtle Baby. I also keep thinking about whether Monkey Boy will resume nursing and what it would be like for me to tandem nurse. Also, what special thing we’ll do just for Turtle Boy soon before his sibling arrives.
Loving: All things fun. The sunshine. Our growing Turtle Baby. Our beautiful family. Our wonderful midwife. Supportive family members. My body.
Wearing: Comfortable and cool clothes. I’ve been wearing a few dresses and definitely enjoying easy simple stretchy tank tops!
Hoping: Mostly that my fourth trimester will be a bit easier than it was with Monkey Boy. Also, that my carpel tunnel won’t get much worse for the remainder of this pregnancy.
What have you been reading, planning, stressing, wishing, feeling, listening to, thinking, loving, wearing, and hoping lately? Have any tips on carpel tunnel or the fourth trimester? Any advice for tandem nursing?
