I am 24 weeks today! I have been excited for this day because it means the baby has reached "viability" and this makes me feel a little better.
I am already feeling really big and I don't know if I'm really going to like getting any bigger. When I see myself in the mirror, turned to the side, the words "big as a house" come to mind. I guess I am just a baby house right now though, so that makes sense.
We purchased some outfits for the baby, the first ones we have bought. They are pretty cute but dang, I am not going into Gymboree again. I cannot afford that place. Thank goodness I am not having a girl because we would be so broke.
By the way, I feel that I should clarify. In one of my previous posts I may have come off as a monkey hater. I LIKE monkey's! I like jungle animals. I just prefer them to be displayed in more of a modern/aesthetically pleasing way. Still cute and fun for kids, but not overly cutesy and gushy, ya know? That makes sense, right? Maybe not. I don't know.
I recently found out that our plans for me working part time from home and a little at the office after maternity leave are not going to happen. My mother had offered to watch the baby so that I would be able to do this, but I guess the time got closer, reality set in, and she realized she doesn't want to be the babysitter.
That was really my only plan. We can't think of any other option other than me staying home with baby and being a full-time momma. I like this, this is what I always wanted. But I am so nervous about trying to make it on just Cody's income. I do have serious faith that things will work out, though.
