Today, we ate a giant ice cream (yes, she did actually lick it before I could stop her. So thankful for that immune system boost from nursing!) …

… we sat and contemplated important things (while mama waited. And waited. And waited a bit more.)…

…and we played with our reflections in wobbly mirrors! 

So, we didn’t do anything all that important. We went to mum’s choir, had a gorgeous dairy free pizza with some mama friends, wandered around for a bit doing all this stuff. And it was great, actually. 

I need some quiet, do-nothing type days. My bump is suddenly huge, my back aches constantly and my time with just my daughter is suddenly feeling very short.

I love her more than life and I can’t quite comprehend that my love will grow to encompass another child, just as my body has grown to encompass him. It’s amazing and beautiful and terrifying and wonderful and did I mention terrifying? 

But I really am excited now. I can’t wait to meet him.
