I thought that last weekend might be our last one as a family of three but baby had other ideas! We’re still waiting and I’m now at the stage where I’m hormonal, grumpy and generally not too much fun to be around. In the last few days of my pregnancy with Lyra I found I was crying oh so much for no reason at all but this time my hormones seem to have turned me into some crazy micro manager! I have a compulsive need to write lists about everything and try and plan every little thing. I guess that it’s kind of understandable since I have no control over when this baby is coming so I’m trying to claw back some control wherever else I can find it.
I’m also much happier closer to home at the moment which is something new to me. I’m usually eager to be off out on an adventure with Lyra but in this late stage of pregnancy I find myself counting down until I’m back within my home. Because of this, Lyra and I have been spending a lot of time in the garden and I’m surprised at how much we’ve both been enjoying it. She still gets to explore and play outside but I feel more comfortable as I’m at home. It’s funny what pregnancy can do to you isn’t it?
We’ve been doing a lot of baking as well as paints and crafts. I’m trying to stay as involved with Lyra as possible and soak up these last few days with her alone. I may not know when this baby will arrive but I know that it can’t be too long!
