The little mister and I continued to grow.
We fixed Tatum's hair in a single pony tail for the first time. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. It looks a little bit like a rat's tail to me but it also kind of makes her look grown up.
Now Brennan is back to school and we are all still working on adjusting to that. His schedule is much different than it ever has been. Not all of the differences are bad, just different and definitely require adjustments to our usual family routine. Tatum is definitely missing the time with daddy. She is always surprised if he isn't here when she gets up in the morning or from a nap. It's amazing how that just became the norm to her in two short weeks. And sometimes at nap time she will do a really sad cry and say "want daddy rock". So sweet, but so sad.
I am 32.5 weeks pregnant and look every day of that and then some. I'm starting to realize just how quickly these next 7 weeks are going to go and my feelings are all over the place about it. I am feeling stressed because I don't feel like we have everything we need for him. I am nervous and anxious because giving birth again kinda sorta scares the living daylights out of me. I am feeling sad because I only have a few weeks left of just me and sweet Tatum and I know her world is about to change drastically and there's really nothing I can do to prepare her for that. And lastly I am, of course, feeling excited to meet the little dude and become a family of four. Whew, that's a lot of emotion. Might explain a few things...haha.
And Tatum? Well she is equal parts sweet and sassy. Some moments she melts my heart with how eager to please she is. She can be so sweet and loving and ready and willing to help and listen. And then the very next moment she makes my blood pressure rise by giving me more attitude than a 16-year-old. I love her to death and I sure am trying. I hope those two things are enough because most days I feel like I am failing at every attempt to teach her anything of value.
And I think I am finally all caught up. I, for one, am glad it's Thursday. (Brennan doesn't have classes on Fridays). I hope you all have a great weekend!
