Holy smokes, where does the time go? I’m already 36 weeks and still cooking Baby #2. It is really tiring me out and I’ve been trying to get rest as much as I can. The worst part has been that I don’t sleep well and my feet and ankles are swollen up pretty early in the day. Luckily, Ryan’s schedule has slowed a bit, so he’s been a huge help with Andrew and the house work.
Last Saturday was the Fargo Marathon in town. My sisters ran the ½ marathon for the 3rd time and did great. My dad got in on the action this year and ran the 1st leg of the 4 person full marathon relay. He did very well, too. We have a great place to watch the marathon, so we had lots of people over to cheer on the runners and had a fun potluck in the afternoon.
Andrew is doing great and learning so much. It's amazing what he retains. His favorite thing to do it go to the grocery store. The best part is our grocery store gives away balloons to the kids and he likes to pick one out to bring home. He is having a little bit of tummy trouble and constipation lately, but we put him on some medication and that seems to be helping. I hope that resolves itself soon as potty training is right around the corner. He doesn’t have any interest in that for now, which I’m okay with since he will have some big adjustments coming up with the new baby coming soon. In June he will be moving into the bigger nap room at daycare where he will be sleeping on a cot instead of crib there. He’s been in his bed at home for a while, so I hope that is an easy transition for him. He will have another session of swimming lessons in June. He started really liking them by the end last time where he got to jump in.
We’ll keep you posted on Baby #2!
