The end if nearing in this pregnancy or that’s what I keep telling myself. There is only 32 days left hopefully. Knowing me it will be more like 40 days left. It’s incredibly exciting and incredibly scary at the same time. We have a routing right now and it works. Adding another kid is going to upset that apple cart, but we will find our new normal and everything will be fine right?
This weekend I have the goal of getting out the baby clothes and giving them a good wash and then getting all those bottles out and the paraphernalia that has been tucked away from Miss K that is soon going to be needed again. I told the hubs he really need to raise the mattress back up in the crib. The reply I got was a roll of the eyes and oh we have plenty of time. Sure we technically will have another month but then the anal over planner/worrier in me says but WHAT IF. What if we only have a week or two?
That also brings up another thing we have to figure out. The name. Why is it so hard for me to pick out a name for my unborn child that I’ve never met and don’t even know the gender of? Oh wait, maybe that’s why it’s so hard. The pressure of naming a human being who’s personality I don’t know kind of makes me want to throw up a little bit. You see with Miss K I had her name picked up before I even told people I was pregnant. It just came to me and that was it. Boom. Done. The boy name wasn’t so boom done. In fact I was still trying to change it to what I really wanted as I was having contractions. The hubs did not take pity on me in that moment and agree to changing it.
This time around I have the boy’s name. Boom. Done. The girl’s name I’m a little hesitant on. We have one but I’m wishy washy and I can’t quite say yes forever and it’s done. Does that mean I’m having a boy this time? I kind of hope so due to the fact it would take this name pressure off of me.
Oh wait did you come here for a recipe and not to hear me babble about trying to get ready for a baby and pick out my unborn child’s name? Well then I have the perfect treat for you today! If you are loving all things pumpkin then this treat is for you. If you are not loving pumpkin then either get on the pumpkin band wagon or go look at another one of my recipes duh!
