10 weeks left! // Time is flying

She is a sister obsessed with her baby brothers. Always kissing my belly and loving on Everett.
Y'all, I knew I wouldn't post nearly as much about this pregnancy, just with time constraints and a busy life with two kids... but I didn't expect that I wouldn't post a single update until I was 75% of the way through it!

Time is flying so fast these days. I feel like I say that all of the time on here, but it has seriously kicked into overdrive this past year. I mean, it's AUGUST for crying out loud!

Maybe it's the fact that I have 2, well 3 counting my belly, kids but I literally feel the days slipping through my fingers. Or maybe it's because I'll officially be on my way to my late twenties by the end of the month. Yikes. Not that I have any problems with getting older (I know that I'm still so young!) but my mom sure made me feel old this weekend when she thought I was turning a year younger and then freaked when she realized how "close" I am to turning 30, ha!

Either way, time is flying, this pregnancy is flying, and there is nothing that I can do to slow it down. I can only enjoy it, and I have been.

Little man is always wriggling around in my belly. We've reached the point where sleep is hard, breathing is hard, sitting down for too long is hard because there's not much space in my torso for the little motorcycle-helmet sized baby and all of my organs (i.e.: my lungs, mostly) so it just can be super uncomfortable -- especially when he is trying to do some roundhouse kicks to my ribs.

All of that said, I LOVE IT. I love being pregnant. Sure, you're tired and miserable, moody, and your body quite literally doesn't belong to just you anymore; but it is the most rewarding and amazing experience that I have gone through. Feeling these not-so-little baby kicks and hiccups and knowing that another little person that you (and your significant other) created is just weeks away from meeting you, it's so surreal. You're literally creating a person... how awesome is that?!

Many people have asked if we're done having children after this baby. I haven't felt committed 100% to any answer that I have come up with so far. I've maintained that another is not entirely off of the table at this point - but, ask me that in a few more months or even a year from now, and my answer may just be a song of a different tune. ;) I haven't felt like this is my last pregnancy but who knows. All I can tell you is that it is certainly not in the plan to have another for at least 2-3 more years after this, if at all.

Be back with more soon!

PS- Aren't the floors gorgeous in the picture above!? They're the ones in the baby's room and they are hopefully getting sealed tonight so that we can start working on the painting (the trim, ceiling, and walls) this weekend. Eeeeeeek!
