I am halfway through my pregnancy, and I still cannot believe it!
I think I look so much different this time around, I was so much thinner last time.. sigh
I have my 20 week check up today and our 20 week anatomy scan TOMORROW! I am so excited to find out what we are having so I can start planning the next phase of the nursery/when to move Liam into his big boy room.
The weather here has been so up and down that both Liam and I have a little bit of a cold this week. It’s not too bad and we are at the end of the cold so hopefully we will be 100% by Sunday! I also blame the weather this week for my horrific hip and back pain. I was doing really well for a while then it came back, and now I waddle. I hope it doesn’t keep getting worse, I am afraid I won’t be able to get up and down the stairs if that does happen. I delayed putting this post up because I wanted to wait until Liam was 20 months old, which was yesterday! I tried to get some good pictures of Liam and I next to each other but it is nearly impossible to get this toddler to stand still for a picture.
Liam isn’t so little anymore, and he has a mind of his own! He actually has opinions on what he wants to wear in the mornings and what he wants to do and isn’t afraid to tell us. He can say well over 50 words (I haven’t actually counted) and is learning new ones every day. We are trying to teach him his colors, but he refuses to learn and says everything is green. We are also learning the alphabet and our numbers. It has been really fun to watch him learn and grow, I cannot wait to see what he gets into next!
