Loving: reminiscing on all our adventures I've been able to share with my family the past month or so. I can't believe we fit in so much even with Eric basically working his life away. Eric and I went on our little babymoon cruise, we took Mia to the beach in Mexico for an amazing family vacation, Mia and I went to Utah to visit family (still have to recap that trip!) plus little stuff around home. I definitely have the wanderlust bug (and seem to have passed it on to Mia) so I'm grateful we've been able to do so much when I wasn't expecting to be able to do anything at all! I'm sure life will slow waaaaay down the closer we get to my due date and once baby boy arrives, so I'm loving giving Mia all of these adventures! Now if only we could figure out how to get paid to just travel and enjoy family vacations full time ;) Seems like that would be the life, ha ha!
Reading/Watching: I'm a Big Sister to Mia :) Someday I'll actually share something that I'm reading for myself! Until then, I'll be trying to prep Mia for the changes that are quickly coming her way!
I've been catching up on the Bachelorette on Hulu and guys, WHO ELSE HATES NICK?! Ugh, he literally disgusts me. I think he's such a creeper!
I can't even believe it but NCIS has finally been added to streaming on Netflix! Hallelujah! Eric and I are so behind on all of our shows, we go to bed after Mia does instead of catching up, ha ha. But we've actually been making the time to watch NCIS together a couple times a week and we are loving it :)
Trying to: gear up for transitioning Mia to a toddler bed! I have to admit that I'm not ready to kick her out of her crib, but I'm not buying another one for baby brother, so we have to transition! We actually won't do it until August as we have one more trip coming up, but I need to find her a bed! I always thought that I would skip the toddler bed and get a real bed when it was time for Mia to transition, but we've decided to have the kids (kids, weird!) share a room to keep a guest room available whenever friends/family want to visit. The bedroom is just too small to get the size of bed I wanted to get for Mia, so a toddler bed is the only choice for now. I would love any and all recommendations of where to shop for a toddler bed!
Wishing: that air conditioning didn't cost so much. It's NO fun paying $400 (a month) for AC, especially when ours is set at 79. Yuck! But I AM grateful that I live in this generation... I honestly wonder how people survived these Arizona summers before air conditioning! At least we won't have a heating bill in the winter. I'm willing to bet that we won't turn on the heat this whole winter (unless of course there is a crazy cold spell. We will be looking out for baby boy ;))
Excited for: how quickly time is flying! I'm ready to get past this summer heat AND have a baby in my arms instead of my belly ;) I am soaking up every second of this time of just me and Mia because I know I will miss it! We have had the best times together and I definitely don't want to wish that time away. But I also want to welcome the changes coming our way with open arms, hopefully that will help Mia adjust quickly? We will see! Either way, I'm excited to meet our baby boy but also taking advantage of living in the moment with my little bestie!
