Funny how things work out.
But obviously- Jackson loves his big boy bed.
I bought him car/truck bedding and we put the bed rail up. I took down all of the Classic Winnie the Pooh wall stickers and art down. I took everything baby out of his room and all things big boy are in there. When you walk into the door- this is what you first see: And then if you look to the left- here's the rest. His room is very small. He's getting a new lamp, new cd player/radio, and some artwork Jamie is going to do for us. (Side note- no rush, Jamie! I'm not quite finished deciding if I like where the furniture is yet!!)
And of course, I left the rocking chair in there. It sits next to the window that overlooks our back yard. I can't get rid of that quite yet..
Jackson is super in love with his car rug thing. A friend of ours gave this to us and Jackson loves it. He really likes cars, but his current fav are "diggers" which is basically any kind of construction vehicle.
But I'm sad. My baby is now two years old. My oldest baby is going to be five. I have friends who said they just know when they are done. And I know very much so that the thought of being officially done is heart breaking. Not only was I lucky enough to have a husband who did midnight feedings (and didn't even wake me up once), I had two fabulous pregnancies. I enjoyed every minute of being pregnant. I actually enjoyed both of my labor and deliveries. It's like my body was meant to be a baby making machine.
I already told Matt that if I ever got the opportunity- I would most definitely be a surrogate mother for someone. Getting paid, obviously. I just really liked being pregnant. I really liked being in labor and feeling my body basically rip apart. That's weird, isn't it? I didn't like ripping/tearing from front to back but that heals. (After approximately 14 weeks for me, coincidentally) OK and I didn't like the feeling of my milk coming in or drying up. Drying up is way worse. It's the equivalent of two solid rock masses strapped to your chest that sporadically shoot liquid. Or leak without cause. They are like a kick stand on a bike if you lay on your side. It's awful. But after a few weeks that goes away too.
Plus, it's absolutely undeniable. We make cute babies, if nothing else.
