ready for chores getting serious leftover soup for lunch so long feet waiting for those leaves watching trucks breakfast burrs aka hitchhikers kitty love
We're getting a taste of some warmer weather and it couldn't be more thrilling. There are still some cold temperatures and gray skis mixed in, but flowers are blooming and it really does feel like a new season. Little Smith has total spring fever- he's nuts. We go to the park and he runs like a mad man and won't listen at all when I call out 'stop, stop your feet, stooop!". I'm sure the neighborhood is getting used to the crazy pregnant lady booking it across the field to catch a giggling toddler, but I do know how he feels. There's such a sense of freedom with the sunshine and fresh air.
James has been able to get home early several nights these last two weeks. It's such a luxury to see him before the sun sets, and now towards the end of the day Little Smith starts looking out the window and letting me know, 'I go outside wait for daddy'. I know this schedule won't last, but it's incredibly sweet. I'm so grateful for the bond those two share, especially as we get closer to adding this new little person to our family.
I've been packing a lot into each day, little trips and activities and get together's with friends. It's a nice change not to be loafing around the house. I had thought that being struck with terrible morning sickness in the depths of winter was the most unfortunate timing, and in some ways it probably did make things more challenging, but on the flip side I am so so happy to be feeling great and fully able to enjoy these fresh long days. Complaints are tough to come by right now, even for me (and I'm a pretty adept complainer!).
