Holla Hump Day

This week's shout outs go to…

…baby Burrow #1. We are down to the last few days of Pre-K. If I'm being honest, I can't wait for it to be over. I might be more excited about summer than she is! It's been a long, tough year for so many reasons. This sweet girl has taught me more in her five short years than all of my experiences in the twenty nine years before she arrived. Lila's birthday post will finally be up tomorrow too!

…baby Burrow #2.  Preschool ended today for her and she too is ready for summer. Somewhere in this school year she went from toddler to kid. I haven't been feeling great in the mornings again and she just  cuddles in the bed with me talking and touching my face. Today, without prompting, she got a wet washcloth and put it on my head. It felt so nice to be the one being babied for a little bit.

…baby Burrow #3.  Taking a full body selfie is rather hard. Not to mention, I had to stand on a stool because we have no long mirrors in our house. In the past few days I find myself trying to imagine how on Earth I will get bigger than I am right now. My torpedo belly (as it was with Evie too) just keeps inching forward. Even with all of the crazy pregnancy symptoms I'm having I feel really fortunate to be pregnant for a third time. I have that constant feeling of fullness that goes well beyond the physical. It slows me down and makes me take time to embrace things more often. For this I thank you little guy or girl. Anyone want to take a guess as to which it will be?

…my dear, sweet husband. The man works like a crazy person this time of year. He's rarely home, let alone in town. He deals with nonsense and headaches on the regular. We are both so tired and spent right now. And yet, I can feel how much he misses us every single day. He spent half the day on Sunday cleaning the house because plans were canceled due to the rain. I was cleaning as well, but not like he was. All week I have been walking around this house feeling so thankful for his hard work when he's here and when he's not. Here's to daydreaming about Hawaii my love.


  1. Can't believe the girls are already 5 and 3! You look fabulous carrying baby #3!

  2. Baby #3 is a lucky somebody, whether him or her, to have you and Seth for parents and to have Lila and Evie for sisters!! I couldn't be more excited!
