Life's a peach!

Just recently checked on the progress of my pregnancy and at 13 weeks, baby is now the size of a peach!'s just amazing to me how fast things are going. It wasn't that long ago that the fetus was only about as big as a blueberry. Just the other day, I also began to feel the first flutters of a tiny life inside me. I don't know if all soon to be mothers feel like this, but I love feeling those flutters if only to assure me that yes, I'm still pregnant and that the baby is active and able to move. I have always been one to worry, but now being a mother has almost compounded it. So I guess it's natural that along with worrying about the development of Noah...I'm now worrying about the development of baby #2. I guess I just think there is no way that I could have two healthy children...there's something bound to happen! I just know it! But, then there is a calm that comes across me when I realize that a) I don't have much control over it other than doing my best to care for myself and the baby and b) God will NEVER give me more than I could handle. He promises that much...not that life will be easy but that he will not give us more than we can handle.

The next task in the Hagewood household in preparation for the next bundle of joy is getting Noah ready to be a gentle, caring older brother. Hmmm...we've got our work cut out for us folks! "Gentle" and "caring"...not really words that I would use to describe my blond, blue-eyed rambunctious little tike. Aggressive, assertive, and cheerful...yes! His latest word is "baby" so that's a start and he recognizes baby pictures of himself. Now to search for a fake baby doll to have "big brother practice" is next on my list. Lesson #1 I'm thinking will be:  we don't scratch at baby' face and eyes!

Wish me luck...

  1. Michelle, I love it! After our day of pampering yesterday I had to get on an check this out. You have such a way with words. I guess since I no longer have the pleasure of seeing you at work every day I will have to "check up" on you by following your very entertaining posts. Makes me feel not so left out! You are such an inspiration to me. I truly cherish our friendship and only hope we always have time to get together and share laughs! :)
