I had my midwife appointment today. Baby H is all happy and snug down in there.
Rosie and Ada were so active in the womb–both of them kicked, flip flopped around, jabbed me, poked me, and even did something that felt like clawing me to pieces. Baby H doesn’t do any of that. He just wiggles and pokes his butt up.
I imagine he thinks my womb is his man cave. I’m certain he’s in there chilling out. He stretches and yawns every now and then, scratches his bum, then goes back to playing his video games while munching on some snacks.
I wonder if he’ll be this calm on the outside. A mother can only hope. (Especially after Ada! I worry something is wrong with him!)
So I don’t think he’s coming out any time soon. It seems like he’s never going to come out. I’m not feeling very anxious about it, I guess I’m ok waiting for him to decide to emerge. Maybe when he beats the next level of Super Mario Brothers and realizes he’s out of space to stretch out and scratch his bum and decides that his man cave is getting a bit cramped…
But I would really like to stop feeling nauseated now, so the sooner the better.
Rosie’s seventh birthday was on the 19th. We had family over for cake the day after.
Her main present was the bunnies. The bunnies are surprisingly awesome. I think I’ve already written about that. I heart them, way more than expected. They are huge already at just three months old! Luckily I discovered that the feed store sells 50 pound bags of rabbit pellets for only $12. They eat that along with timothy hay and salad type things. They also love to graze on grass and weeds. I just need to find a cheap source for bales of timothy hay. The tiny bags from the pet store are expensive and last only a few days!
My internet is being too slow tonight to post pictures. Dang it! It’s going to take me hours. 0.8 mpbs is super frustrating sometimes.
Here’s Rosie on her birthday.
She used to be so small. I’m not sure how this has happened. It went by so quickly. She was only 6 pounds, 14 ounces just a few years ago. Some of the newborn clothes were too big! Now she wears size 8 clothes, and as many people commented yes she has my very long legs and torso. She’s taller than most other kids her age. I was too, but then in high school it all evened out. It’s just like I grew a lot early on then stopped. I have a feeling Rosie and Ada will do the same. Now I’m about 5 foot 6 inches, just kind of average, though still long bodied. Ada has a different body type than Rosie and me, but at age three Ada already wears 5t clothes.
Rosie and me on her birthday! (38 weeks pregnant. Tyler took the ones with me in them.)
I was telling her that I love her and happy birthday.
Opening some birthday presents from us on the front porch–
This turned out to be unfortunately more about raising meat rabbits than anything, which luckily didn’t horrify her, but I did have to swear several times that we weren’t planning on eating the bunnies.
Ada got to open a gift too. Something they could play with together.
By the way, Rosie specifically requested that all her presents be wrapped in pink paper!
They’ve been asking for those for months!
This was the American Girl doll scooter she wanted for Kirsten.
Spike the Dragon talks!
This was her birthday cake. It looked really great in person. The sprinkles were tiny fish in a waterfall!
It tasted great too. It was red velvet with cream cheese icing.
(The cupcakes are for Ada with dairy free icing. There wasn’t any dairy in the cake itself.)
Rosie loved it.
My in-laws got Rosie a bigger bike. It’s a tiny bit too big, she needs to grow into it a little so that her feet can sit flat on the ground.
She’s very proud of it. Papa took her to the store to pick it out herself.
Opening a few presents from family in the living room–her face is red because it was about 94 degrees outside and we’d just come in.
Oh, My Little Pony…both the girls love it.
Tyler’s aunt and uncle gave Rosie an awesome microscope that works really well. They gave Ada a giant magnifying glass.
Ada used it to inspect my mother-in-law.
(I hate the blinds in this cabin, they drive me INSANE.)
My parents gave Rosie a matching nightgown set for her and Kirsten.
Rosie loved it so much she left the guests and ran upstairs to try it on her and her doll, then came back to show it off.
Hank the Hound Beast was on the lookout for dropped bits of cake.
