Hi hi hi. I dont have anything too exciting but I figured Id do some updating.
Harper is getting stronger and stronger. Its hard for me to believe Im already 6 months pregnant so whenever I get a really big kick or he moves and it hits both sides of my body Im like WHOA - I keep forgetting how BIG he is getting!! He can hit both sides of my body at the same time?! I swear he was the size of a "raspberry" last week...
There are 2 main things that I have noticed that are different from when I was pregnant with Alikah. He is a lot lower and covering my cervix, I know that. But I didnt think Id really be able to tell. I can TOTALLY tell. I never got kicked THAT low with Alikah. Or if I did I dont remember it. Also, I am pretty sure I have started having braxton hicks contractions, which is of course normal but I never had them with Alikah.
Alikah - At my last doctors appointment my Doctor and every nurse that saw and heard Alikah was amazed by her vocabulary. She talks like a 3 (or sometimes even a 4) year old. No one can believe that she isnt TWO yet, including me. I feel like shes been 2 for awhile now. But she hasnt been. She turns 2 in exactly 2 weeks.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE having her home every day again. And you know what? I know she loves it too. I miss Alikah the second she leaves. I miss her so much that it hurts. I have to put all her toys away right away because seeing them out is too hard for me when shes not here.
Last May when Marshall got out of jail, whenever she had to go by him I would literally sit on the couch and stare at the wall because I didnt know what to do with myself. Hes only been gone a week now but I already know thats exactly how Id feel if he got out again.
