wilder in 2014: week 30!

ww 7.26

yes, i know, i'm the worst blogger in the history of blogs. i've missed, what, 5 weeks of weekly wilder photos? well, at least you all now know that most of that is because i've been hosting a fetus in my womb for the past 16 weeks, and my fetuses, as it turns out, are very demanding little house guests. i mean i love my fetus, but my blogging drive (and cooking drive, and uh, being awake drive) pretty much dwindled to nil during the first trimester. i don't know how other pregnant mamas do it. maybe they don't have morning sickness/extreme fatigue?? that's what i'm telling myself anyways. especially because right now i feel at least a whole month more pregnant than i am.

right, so, but i'm back! at least for this one day, because i spent a nice little afternoon taking photos of wilder in his kiddie pool and had to post one. and also, because i had a coke this afternoon. and because i made dinner. so i'm kind of on a roll. don't expect it to last. i'd like to believe i have photos of all the weeks i missed and i fully intend to publish day...after i have another coke probably.

behold, wilder! a whole month older than when you last saw him! even though for the last couple of months i've felt like being a mama, and especially a pregnant mama, is one of the hardest things ever (not really, but also, yes, really), the truth is, there is nothing better than this 15-month-old. i still find myself asking loverboy at least a few times a day, "isn't he the sweetest baby you've ever seen?".  and i still find a quiet afternoon spent splashing in a kiddie pool while papa builds things in the yard and does other papa things, to be one of the best ways to spend an afternoon.

next year...


we are going to be a family of four! obviously, we're beyond thrilled, but i'm not going to lie, right now the thought of two kids is a bit daunting. two kids! that's like a legitimate family right there. but if this next baby is anything like the heart-stealer that that little boy up there is (and he/she will be! duh!), we are more than ready! mama, papa, and wilder can't wait to meet you, baby grace #2!
