Things with the house reorganizing are coming along every so slowly doing it mostly by myself.
Yesterday I reorganized all the boxes in the POD outside and brought in 95% of the toys. They’re semi-organized in our old bedroom, the new playroom/office. I got completely worn out and sore after moving all those boxes. I’ve been too tired to do any more today!
I managed to take the girls outside earlier to check out signs of spring. We also potted some flowers they picked out when we were shopping yesterday. I was intending to plant some seeds too, but after feeding the chickens and carrying the chicken feed, then walking outside with the kids, and putting a few flowers in pots I suddenly had no energy left.
This pregnancy is really wearing me out for some reason. My body just stops. Cannot keep going, must lay down. Dislike!
I get antsy when I can’t get up and do things. If there’s no chaos I feel the need to create some, I can’t just sit here. Body, really…I’m not feeling sick anymore thankfully, just worn out sometimes.
Maybe I’m becoming elderly and feeble. You know, at the ripe old age of 26. ;)
And my toes are swollen. Dude! I’ve never had swelling this early in pregnancy before. June and July might be long, hot swelly months for me. Yikes.
I am getting cautiously excited about a teeny brand new baby to snuggle and love on. I’m still paranoid about miscarriage, or I guess now still birth. He’s not nearly as active as Rosie and Ada were, at least not that I can feel all the time. My placenta makes an L shape along the side and top, so maybe that’s blocking some of his movements? He’s down so low too, way lower than the girls.
I’m already in love with him, somehow. That scares me since he’s not safe in my arms yet.
But a new baby! I might really be having one? To dress in cute baby clothes, and with a tiny bum to pat. Soft baby hair to sniff. Send help.
Hate being pregnant when I feel awful, but I could easily have a million newborns.
I’ll just…post pictures now.
First, here are a couple of instagram pictures from yesterday at lunch.
These pictures are from our time outside this afternoon:
Our strawberry patch got decimated by the ducks. I wasn’t sure they would come back up, but yesterday tiny leaves appeared and today they’re even bigger.
Rapidly growing! These little dew looking drops are not dew. Guttation, maybe?
This would be perfect if Rintoo was sniffing a flower, but instead he’s sniffing dead tomato stalks from last year that I never cleaned out…
Periwinkle is in bloom!
This is the almost actual color of these flowers. They are very dark blue/purple in person. I’ve never, ever seen ones so striking before! I can’t remember the name of them.
I saw them at Walmart yesterday, which isn’t somewhere I normally buy flowers but I couldn’t not buy them!
Rosie and Ada picked Primrose flowers for themselves. We put them in clay pots today and since they only need 3-6 hours of direct sunlight per day the girls can keep them their rooms.
Rosie was distressed because the petals on her plant got old and white overnight. Luckily there are brand new buds down inside waiting to open.
The wild violets are blooming!
I don’t know why people put weed killer on their yards, some weeds are beautiful. What is our obsession with plain perfect grass??
I don’t know what these are, but they’re so cool! They’ve never grown under this tree ever before. We just found a random patch of them had popped up.
Leaves: Coming soon to a tree near you!
It’s supposed to storm tomorrow and then turn cooler again.
The past couple of days of 80 degree temps were heavenly! Can’t wait for summer.
