Extra: Ordinary Moments
The highpoint of this week was a friend bringing her seven week old baby boy round. What a cutie! He wasn't particularly interested in me but I got to give him lots of cuddles anyway (and was reassured by how well Gizmo took the occasional baby wails). It was lovely to chat to someone about nothing but pregnancy and babies for several hours and not have to worry that I was boring them!
Steff also popped round this week with a big bunch of brightly coloured flowers. She bore all the baby talk well.
Seeing as we're here anyway, can we just take a moment to acknowledge that it's February? I know blogs are covered in posts about how fast January has passed and by what February means to the blogger but seriously: January has vanished.
People keep asking me if I'm bored, stuck at home all the time. I don't get bored easily (there's always a book to read) but I did expect the days to pass pretty slowly and that doesn't seem to be happening. April (our due date) will be here before we know it.
In the meantime, we have February. February means my sister's birthday and my mum's birthday and one of my best friend's birthdays, which has meant an excuse to do a bit of online shopping and a need to wrap things up prettily and just, generally, to think about three of the women who matter most in my life.
February is also the month when our rewiring gets done and we can start thinking about decorating the baby's room. It's the month when two of our closest friends buy their first home together. It's the month when we have the bulk of our antenatal classes. Those are a lot of significant moments for just twenty-eight little days.
What does February look like for you?
