iLike...and few things I don't like.

Rowan left today. It was hard. I feel so unbalanced without him these days.

I am settled back home now. I can't decide if it feels good or bad. It's home but it's empty for now. Soon friends will arrive. I have felt so very loved the last few days. The depth of my community is humbling. I have never been a loner. I last about 3 hours without getting deeply lonely. I like full, crazy houses. 

He will be gone a total of 15 days... not that long really. But where I sit it does feel like a very long time. I honestly don't know how our military wives do it. I am crying over 15 days. I guess it's just that grace moment by moment. I tip my hat to them.

The contractions are slow. As long as I am not standing up. I have about a 5 min window to walk slowly to another chair. Sitting does not seem to be a problem. That is nice because if someone drives me to a cafe and drops me near the door I can sit and enjoy an outing. As long as I stay still for about an hour I can walk to a different location without having a strong contraction. I am starting to notice a difference between one that 'does something' and one that is practice. Well, at least I think I can. It makes me feel better anyway. 

But here is stuff I have been liking the last few days:

I have been wanting to show this to you for a few days and I had to post it... after reading parenting books I must say that I found this relatable and hilarious. I love me some Portlandia [and yes, Portland is really IS like this] It's worth a visit. Sorry for the nasty word at the end. Don't talk that way kids. It's not cute.




Had an incredible baby shower! I loved it! My soul felt so full when I left.

Getting some good belly time. I still love it when people touch my tummy.

Spring time!
Spring leaves

I was remembering this today... the day after I found out about the babes. We are outside a baby store to pick up a newborn onesie to give to a new set of grandparents.

Also:
Baby sis gave me this book. Loving it!
Cucamelon? They say they grow well... might be worth a try

Thank you for all the kind words and notes and emails and comments. I have been re-reading them. No lie.
