Last week I showed you a couple of family portraits from around our ‘hood on Crown Hill and today we’re taking it inside the Jungalow. Jen Lauren Grant has managed to capture the heart of our growing family, and our colorful, silly lifestyle.
I am into the third trimester now, and although I do get tired and I’ve had a few minor health issues along the way causing me to be on mild bed-rest, Boomba is already such a good baby and she makes mama laugh with her little kicks and hiccups.
As the belly get’s bigger and bigger and we get to know our little-one more, everything starts to feel more real than surreal. At our ultrasound last week, we got to see her little face in 3D and we also learned that she is currently both “breached” and “posterior” (position-wise) (yikes) so mama really hopes Boomba does some serious twisting and turning soon! To be honest, the prospect of birth still completely terrifies me but I’m hoping the birthing classes that we start next week will tame my fears. Knowledge is power, yes?
Meanwhile I’m waddling around prepping for her arrival. Daddy and I had the nursery painted yesterday. Looking forward to showing you the progress! And while I’ve made a few purchases for myself over the last few months (like new bras from Jeanette Bras–since I’ve gone up a whopping 3 cup sizes) I made my very first purchase for Boomba yesterday of little tiny hangers for her little tiny clothes.
We have been so lucky to get hand-me-downs from lotsa ‘tantes’ (that’s Yiddish for aunties) and homies and have everything in big piles ready to sort and organize–I LOVE this part.
