It's crazy how fast this pregnancy seems to be flying by! Baby E is due in about 10 weeks (although it's more like 11-ish, with the way my babies like to cook inside this belly of mine...), and I feel like we were just finding out I was pregnant with this little one.
My belly is getting bigger and bigger - my skin has been so itchy lately from stretching out. And little girl is a mover, always dancing and making herself known in my belly - especially late at night and early in the morning, which I sure hope isn't a sign of her sleep habits to come ;)
I am starting to feel more tired again, similar to how I felt the first few weeks I was pregnant, but that could also be attributed to all the moving prep and chasing after 3 little ones! For awhile, I was craving a lot of healthier-type foods, but the last few weeks, all I want is sweets - donuts, cheesecake, ice cream, cookies, chocolate - you name it! Good thing Max is on a healthy eating kick - it's good motivation to not go completely crazy with the sweet treats! I had no interest in coffee the first few months I was pregnant, but in the last two months, I have been wanting it again, which makes this coffee-loving mama happy.
The kids love to hug and kiss my belly, and Ezra likes to try to feel her move every night when he goes to bed. A few months ago, he announced he had a baby in his belly too. And then, shortly after that, it became three babies. He often talks about them, which cracks me up. The other morning, he came downstairs, and I could hear his stomach rumbling. I asked him what the noise was, and he was quickly told me that the babies in his belly were very hungry!
I am trying my best to soak up these pregnant moments, with my growing belly and little babe inside, but am also getting way excited for her to come out, so we can see her sweet face and get to know her personality - I can't wait to see how big she is (especially in light of my other big babes!) and what color her hair is - I feel like I am about due to have a dark-haired child, but then I look at my three blonde babes, and just laugh!
Oh precious baby E, you caught us all completely off-guard, but we are already so smitten with you. We can't wait for you to grace us with your presence. Even if you do have blonde hair and keep us up at all hours of the night!
