We have finally hit double digits. 10 months old. Wow. I know I say it each month, but I just can’t believe how fast time is truly going. It only feels like yesterday that I was scared to hold this little newborn and now I’m running after a boisterous baby. In exactly 8 weeks, I’m going to have a one year old. That’s definitely something I’m not ready to accept yet. Before I start weeping over that, let’s get into her 10 month update.
It’s absolutely crazy to me that I’m already over the half way point. It really only feels like yesterday that I found out I was pregnant. And now we’re here, 21weeks in and only 19 more weeks to go. It’s kind of scary how fast it goes second time around. I guess that’s to be expected when you have a crazy 10 month old to look to chase around and and look after but I honestly wouldn’t change it for the world.
When I conceived baby number two, it never occurred to me how hard the first trimester was going to be with a 6 month old baby to look after. Having had it quite tough with my first pregnancy, I was expecting it again with my second, but I didn’t realise just how different it was going to be with a little one as well to care for. To say those first couple of weeks were hard would be an understatement, but I did find ways to make it slightly easier and that’s what I’m here to share with anyone who could be in a similar situation or will be in the future.
I’m pregnant! Now that you know that I’m expecting, you can’t be mad at me for disappearing for 4 months. In all seriousness though, I apologise for the lack of posts on this blog. When you’re pregnant and have a baby already, boy is it hard. It’s especially hard when you’re in the horrors of morning sickness for several weeks. Now that things have died down, I hope to update regularly on here about my pregnancy with baby #2. And of course updates on my beautiful first born, Emily. So, if pregnancy and babies is your thing, keep reading.
How are you four months old already, Emily Grace?! So much has changed. I’ve watched you grow from a sleepy newborn to a very active little girl. My heart swells with pride each day when you do something new. Just when I thought I couldn’t love you anymore, I do. Simple as that. Your third month of life was probably one of the most exciting and it’s one that I can’t wait to discuss here.
