My six month bump

It’s official, I’m six months pregnant.  This pregnancy is moving along too stinkin’ fast!  I’m trying my best to enjoy it while I can.  Here are a few things I’d like to say to my little BIG six month bump.

-You already have sibling rivalry.  When older bro Parker is on my lap playing patty-cake, you kick me as if to say…”Mama, it’s my turn, my turn!”

-You are a night owl AND a morning riser.  I feel you kick the most first thing in the morning.  Probably to let me know that I should empty that bladder of mine to give you some extra room OR ELSE.  Before bedtime when Daddy and I snuggle up to watch some late night TV in bed, we feel you moving around in there practicing your kicks and spins.  We both enjoy feeling you move around and wondering what you’re up to.

-At your 2o week viewing (ultrasound) we found out that you were going to be a boy.  We were thrilled and excited that Parker would have a buddy to play with.  I just know you two will be the best of friends.  The boy name we picked out for you is Mason.  We thought it was pretty hip, but also thought it sounded very masculine, timeless and strong.  Your middle name will be Ashby after my side of the family, which I’m very proud to be apart of.

-You’ve been getting a lot of bouncing around and movement because Mommy has been working out a lot while you are bundled up inside my belly.  Being pregnant with you has been different from Parker because it hits all the major fattening holidays… Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  While I love the excuse to “pig out” , I don’t want you to get too big and be mad at me come delivery day.  Because of that, I’ve been trying to make sure I’m making it up with lots of time in the gym on the elliptical.  Your older bro loves the play area there, which I’m sure you’ll grow to love after your born.

-We’ve been slowly working on getting your nursery ready for your arrival.  Most boys love cars, planes, scooters, and anything that moves, so we decided to incorporate that into your nursery “theme”.  Good thing your Mama is an interior designer, because that and my good friend Etsy, you’re going to have the best looking nursery in town.

-We wonder what you will look like and what your personality will be.  Will you look like your older brother Parker?  He’s pretty cute, so if you do, we won’t mind.  We wonder how much you’ll weigh, if you’ll be tall, what your eye color will be and wether you’ll have a lot or just a little hair at first.  One thing is for sure, I can’t wait to hold you in my arms, kiss your head and say Happy Birthday to you in March.  I’ve already started to bond with you, even though I haven’t seen your sweet face.
