One of Elijah's favorite things to do is "essersize with Daddy" in the garage every night. He does great arm stretches and sit-ups!
Aside from the fact that every teeny weeny little thing in our house is met with resistance, things are going great! (I just keep telling myself that patience and consistency will eventually pay off. Right? Right??)
Ok, quick side question for all you moms and dads out there. Has anyone ever dealt with a child who likes to hit himself when he is frustrated/upset? HOW IN THE WORLD do we deal with this? It makes me crazy! Half the time he does it for attention and half the time I think it is his natural way of dealing with being frustrated.
Back to our week.. The weather is gorgeous, my contractions have stayed consistent and under control (less than 3-4/hour) and we know for sure that the baby is growing because I am getting bigger by the minute. In two days I will have reached the 34-week mark, which is so so awesome and today marks 13 weeks of bed rest. I have been really lucky with this pregnancy because I haven't been 100% stuck to the bed like I was last time. I definitely need to take it easy, and I do, but at least I can move around a little bit and that helps me tremendously when dealing with the emotional part of this ordeal.
That's about all we know! Soon things will get exciting, but for now it's pretty low-key around here. Aside from all the NOOOOOoooooo-ing, that is.
