There are still a few days left in 2013, but I might not update my blog again until January. It's been a somewhat quiet year for us, which is a good thing. The most exciting thing that happened for us is finding out we are expecting another baby. We have a name picked out, but I'm not ready to share it. I'd like to be able to keep the name a secret until the baby is born. It's more fun that way.
We had a really great Christmas at our house. Carleigh was so excited to see Santa had left presents for her. She got some new books, clothes, and of course, some toys. She loves her Jake the Pirate Ship and Optimus Prime toys. She also received gift cards and cash from other family members, so she will get to go shopping tomorrow while we are out. Heath & I got a bunch of gift cards, mostly for Target, so you know where we are going tomorrow. Heath bought me a Galaxy Tab 3 and some Prada sunglasses, which I love. Carleigh had pretty much taken over my Kindle Fire awhile back, so I am glad I have my own tablet again. I'll be searching for a cover for it at Target. I got Heath Gran Turismo 6 for the PS3, so he's been playing that in between GTA Online.
My next doctor appointment is Jan 2. Things have been going good. The only complaint I've had lately is the random pressure that I feel in the crotch area. It feels like the baby is trying to come out. Or, for a better explanation, it feels like someone kicked me in the crotch. It hurts like a mofo and I'll find out if it's normal at my appointment. Those pains aren't followed by cramping or bleeding, so I feel it's nothing to worry about. It's probably completely normal.
We still have a lot of shopping, or should I say, ALL of the shopping to do for the baby. Nothing has been done. It's been stressing me out because we had a bunch of Christmas shopping to do and now that Christmas is over, we now have to do baby shopping. It shouldn't take us too long. The registry I started at Target has about 30 items on it. So it's not that bad. Neither side of the family has bothered to ask if we needed anything for this baby. I'm not sure if they plan on buying anything or not, so instead of waiting for them, I'm going out and purchasing everything myself. I have a feeling my parent's and in-law's aren't that excited this time around because this baby is no longer their first. If that makes any sense. They sure seem excited to fly out here the second the baby is born to annoy the ever living shit out of me, though.
I'll be trying to update this blog more often in 2014. With a new baby in the house, we will see how that all goes. I'll have to chase two kid's around instead of one.
