We caught the flu, and that's slowing me down. SERIOUSLY slowing me down. Also, third trimester hit like a ton of bricks (I celebrated when I made it back up to my pre-pregnancy weight today though! At the end of the day, wearing jeans and a sweater, holding a can of soda, but hey, I'm still counting it as a victory).
Every time I've felt miserable this pregnancy, I've made another baby headband. Kai wanted to model headband number 58. (Yes, I'm aware that no baby girl needs that many headbands. I need to come up with some other accessory to make.)
Isaac turned 8 last week! I decided to wait until after his baptism to do a big post for him, but he was pretty excited about his cake, so I agreed to show it off earlier. (It's gluten free and petroleum-based-dye free, and still tasted good!)
He had a little party at home with his closest friends, and he was ecstatic! We don't do presents at parties (who needs 12 new toys?!), but his two best friends brought him something anyway: books. That kid is a total bookworm, and has almost finished one of his new ones. He was so absorbed in it after school, I had to guide him around the parking lot so he wouldn't walk into parked cars. I'm pretty sure this is about how old I was when I got locked out of the school after recess because I was too focused on my book to notice everyone going back into the building... I guess he comes by it honestly.
