So, as previously stated, I am 17 weeks and 2 days pregnant. This baby is due on Christmas but we will have a c-section on 12/19 (I ended up with sections with both my boys, back story in the blog archives). Henry will be 3 1/2 and Elliot will be 2 years and 2 months old. Elliot and Henry are 18 months apart so that seems like a pretty decent space to us!
Our plan is to move Elliot into Henry's room before the baby comes. I am becoming more and more skeptical about that plan. Elliot is still in his crib and, though he and Henry go to bed at the same time and nap at the same time, I fear them never falling asleep at night and playing/fighting til Mama throws them out the window. How do you make that adjustment? Is there just a rough period that everyone must endure? Mild sleeping potion?
Also, on the adjustment front...looking for a pre-owned mini van. Three car seats won't fit across the backseat of my car and so I am going to sell or trade-in the station wagon (Incidentally, only 58,000 miles in 7 years....not bad, huh?) and get a mom-mobile. Practicality be key, my friends. Coolness is out floating amongst the gillyweeds.
But cannot wait to do this again...
one of the best feelings in life.
