I’m 16 weeks pregnant today! Yea! This pregnancy is flying by! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. It just surprises me, I guess. I’m so very ready for it to be time for this little one’s arrival!!
I’m getting to the point of feeling much better these days. My energy level is almost back to normal. I can do much more than I could a few weeks ago. Once I get worn out, I stay that way, though. I think that’s the hardest part to remember. I usually pay for my fun days the day after. That’s ok, at least I’m able to have fun days!!
Sydney has been talking more and more about the baby. She’s named him/her “Charlie”. We’re not sure why. She’s absolutely certain that it is a boy & his name is Charlie. This surprised us because she’s never even named her babies. She says she can’t wait for the baby to get here. I’m sure she’ll change her tone a little once the baby does come. 😉 We’ll see, though, maybe not. She’s going to be a terrific big sister!! She absolutely loves babies.
This week has also been flying by for us. We are back together after being apart for almost two weeks. It’s nice to be “home”. Having us all together really puts me in a state of peace. I’m trying to enjoy every minute of it–soak it all in. Why? After this week, Ryan is going to be the Navy’s for 3 weeks. It’s time for his annual training. Usually it’s only 2 weeks, but this year they asked him to do 3. Times like these do help us out financially, but they also make us miss him terribly.
My plans for while he’s gone is to keep us busy! I hope to visit family, far and near. We’ll still miss him, but maybe it will keep us distracted a little. Sydney had a hard time with him being gone for almost 2 weeks. I dread him being gone longer. It’s like she hits a melting point. I understand. It rocks her world & she doesn’t completely understand what’s going on. I try my hardest to explain it to her, but it’s not the normal routine & is hard for her to grasp what I’m saying. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can fill our days with fun things to keep her as distracted as possible. We’ll see if it works.
That’s all I have for now. Sixteen weeks down, 24 to go! 🙂
