One of my favorite things about this season is the fact that we can take the mornings slow. I know that it won’t be like this forever, and it certainly isn’t like that every day, but as much as possible, I try to savor those mornings where it’s just Cove and me relaxing and playing at home.

We’ve got a little morning routine, but it’s laid back. We have breakfast, the boys still bring me my coffee like the sweetest gentlemen, and then we just relax and play. I guess I have been thinking about it more lately because it’s just the two of us, and in about four months things will look different. Better I am sure, but different. And preschool comes faster than ever, so it just really makes me appreciate our time just us now. I think he loves it too, because mornings like this usually set a good tone for the rest of our day.

So I have been terrible at posting updates on our second little love and this pregnancy. It has gone by so fast! We are 23 weeks this today and I am feeling pretty good, even though it has been the hardest of the second trimester. I was so sick the first trimester, then the second trimester started and I felt amazing. I had so much energy and no morning sickness. Now though, round ligament pains, heart palpations, and backaches have set in, and I have to remind myself not to push it too much and that it’s okay to relax sometimes.

At our 20 week ultrasound, our little guy was growing strong and healthy. I loved being able to see him moving all around. He has been kicking so much lately. The butterfly kicks are definitely getting stronger, and I can’t wait for Cove to see and feel him move.

We’ve done a few things here and there to the nursery, but have really put it off until the basement renovations are complete. We did purchase a rug and a few other items, so I am excited to see how those pieces pull things together. I will be sure to share some sneak peeks with you soon!

Coffee is back in my life, and that certainly feels good. I still don’t drink sweet tea like I used to, but I think that’s probably a good thing considering the amount of sugar it has. As far as cravings go, I really love super specific things. For example, there is a restaurant called Fish Thyme near us and I dream about the exact meal I want to eat there. Or I want a really specific sub from Publix. Besides that, I’ve done pretty well at eating normal / healthy and hoping it continues to stay that way! I actually eat way healthier this pregnancy than I did with Cove.
