Well here we are 3 1/2 months from baby #3 coming into the world! I can hardly believe that I’m 22 weeks pregnant already. Time is going by so fast and before you know it Easter season will be here, then spring, and then we’ll be welcoming our baby boy! I remember when we were pregnant with Grant I was so petrified that I would not be able to juggle everything without feeling totally overwhelmed. I worried about being able to love a new baby as much as I loved Gabriel. I worried about how I would juggle both of them and give them each the same amount of love, attention, affection, and stimulation they needed individually. Heck, I worried how I would even go out in public by myself and handle 2 small children. Now of course I look back and realize everything I was so concerned about ended up being fine. I instantly adored Grant with the same intense love as I feel for Gabe. Everything else just fell into place and now I can’t imagine my life before they were both here! So this time around I am much more at ease with the upcoming transition. Jim on the other hand is freaking out! Lol. He says there is just no way that we can go out…anywhere anymore. To the store, the mall, even the YMCA he thinks it will be just too difficult (especially if I’m by myself). I just laugh because I figured if we worked it out before, we’ll find a way this time too. It’s just funny to see him getting worked up this time, and stressing about the same things I did last time. Maybe I am in for a rude awakening but at this point I feel pretty confident with how we’ve been able to adjust. Still, I could use prayers that it goes smoothly! Lol. Well I have to go exercise while I have the chance. So far I’ve been getting my workout in almost every day and although it stinks DURING the routine, afterwards I feel so much better! Slowly I feel like I’m making a “habit” of working out again which I know for me is the key to sticking with it.
