Tomorrow I will be 36 weeks along (just over 8 months) and Jonah will be 15 months old. Here is a little update on the both of us.
Me: I have gained 25 lbs. so far this pregnancy. My cervix is softening but not yet dialating. I am tired (and today also emotional) and achy but overall pretty great. I have been taking walks everyday now that the weather is warm (It's been in the 70s, though it's going to be signifigantly cooler for the next week). I am so excited to meet my little girl! I am nervous about being a mom to two young children. We still have yet to decide on a name for our new arrival.
Jonah: I swear he gets cuter and funnier everyday. He goes to the doctor for a check up tomorrow so I can tell you even more then. For now I'm getting a big kick out of him practicing walking backwards, which he does at least twice a day with a very serious look on his face. He hasn't been crying at all when he goes down at bedtime this week (something totally new for him) but he's been getting up a half hour earlier in the mornings. He is teething on at least one back tooth which means he is gnawing on a finger most of the time and gets rather fussy sometimes, but overall he is an angel.
Other good news: My sister, Robin, who has a little boy 6 months younger than Jonah is expecting a baby girl 4 months after me. It will be so fun to have close cousins!
