Week 14 - A Lemon
Happy Monday! I hope all of you had a great weekend. We had a friend's 40th birthday celebration at Prickly Pear Friday PM (which btw is a super cool spot - unique space and has this cool library upstairs of cookbooks), a wedding Saturday PM, and Margaret turned 4 on Sunday. Peter and I were laughing last night as the weekend was a comedy of errors starting with the girls getting sick Friday afternoon and then Peter on Sunday. At the moment (knock on wood) I'm healthy - and hopeful to stay that way!
Wow, so little Baby Carr is now the size of a lemon (about 3 1/2 inches long if he/she were to stretch out) as I'm now in my 14th week. The little guy/gal can now squint, frown, grimace, pee and possible suck his/her thumb! I was chatting with a friend Friday night and she made me think about the fact that right now I'm really two people (kind of an interesting concept to think about!). I think this thought also hit home too when I was at my doctor on Friday for a check up and heard the little guy/gal's heart beat. Pretty amazing.
I'm a 30-something gal who went from Sassy and Single in the city (Chicago) to an instant mom living in the burbs w/my husband's 2 adorable little girls (ages 9 and 11). My husband's late wife's sister's husband (who I used to work w/) introduced us and the rest is history. I've never been happier. And summer 2010 we added a little boy to the mix. We love our little Prince Georgie!
