I know I should have done this yesterday but obviously this week I haven't posted My Week On Pinterest. It will be back the week after next so get ready!
We had a very different kind of week.
Its been a bit stressful.
But at least it has gone by fast and the first week is almost done.
The reason there is no link party is that I've just really needed focus even more on Lucy and making sure she is adjusting well to the new situation we have here with G.I. Joe being gone. She's taking it much harder this time and I figure that's partly because of her age. She is old enough to be aware that he is gone for an unknown (none of us know yet) amount of time but she just doesn't understand it. Sometimes when she asks me if he can get her out of bed to play or talk on the phone and I have to explain it again she gets a bit upset with me. It breaks my heart to think that she thinks I'm keeping her from him.
I can say in all honesty we have never had any behavior problems out of her but of course now some are creeping up. This is all "normal" though for the circumstances so we're just trying to figure it out as we go.
Luckily for Lucy, and for me, we have had a little vacation planned for a while now and its just perfect timing. We both need it. So that's where I'll be next week! Up until yesterday I thought I was keeping everything together pretty well with my own emotions but then Lucy kind of crushed me. I can't put into words how much she loves pretending. Every moment of her day is filled with "Mommy, you be Mrs. Potts and I'll be Belle!" and any combination of characters she can think of. Well, before we even got out of bed yesterday morning she was at it again.
Lucy: "Mommy, can you be Daddy and I be Lucy?"
Me, a little surprised: "Sure. Good morning Lucy!"
Lucy: "Daddy, I love you. That's all."
Good thing it was dark and she didn't see me break down at that point. I finally heard from G.I. Joe last night and told him that and he cried some too. We're so lucky to have a child with such a tender heart.
Lol...bad days are never that bad with my little goofy monkey.
And here is a picture of my very unimpressive 4 month baby bump...
Yeah, really boring so far!
But I figured at 15.5 weeks I should finally take a
I hope you all have a fantastic long weekend!!
