Let’s wrap up the end of good old 2012. I’ll be honest, I’m not sorry to see it go, 2012 was a long hard year.
The ever present bright spot in every day, every week, every month, and especially in this long hard year is crazy loving Henny.
Man alive I could never have told you how much I love being this chump’s mom, it didn’t take me by surprise so much as it’s just overwhelming. More than I expected, and toddler Henry is an unstoppable force. I had no idea that I’d love the toddler age so much, much much more than the adorable infant age.
He’s wild and sweet all at the same time. Frustrating and loveable, shy and fearless.
He keeps me so busy it’s almost easy to forget about this pregnancy all together. Or…it would be if I weren’t suffering from HG again. Well, that and the ever present bump continues to grow! It’s true that I look bigger earlier this second time around. As if my uterus and abdomen never really forgot and rejoiced at the earliest opportunity to fulfill their large destiny.
Started small at 11 weeks (the fanny pack and tubing you see is a zofran pump, kepeing me well-ish and out of the hospital)
Moving right along!
The nicest thing that I threw out with the old year is the pump! I’m grateful that it was available, it kept me out of the hospital, and kept me from losing any more weight, but it really sucked! I took this picture the last day I used it, ouch!
And I’m perfectly happy to say goodbye to one month’s worth of needles
2012 brought some great news for us in this second pregnancy, I’m just hoping 2013 brings more of the good, with a little less of the bad.
