26 Weeks

26 weeks!
Now that there's more to see-- and the weather's getting warmer-- maybe I'll do better at snapping the bump pictures more regularly.

While this has been one of the worst (read: coldest, coldest!) springs since I've moved to Chicago, I haven't minded as much as I usually would since with this weather I can wear the handful of spring maternity clothes I've bought-- mixed with my regular winter wardrobe-- for longer.
When it gets hot and summery, I'll have to get serious about maternity clothes for that serious third trimester bump.

I'm back to not feeling quite so good lately-- somehow the nausea has snuck back up on me, and I've been discouraged with that this past week.
Why that again and why now, right?
Maybe I caught a bit of the flu bug that's going around, or maybe little mister is taking me through a phase, I don't know.

In better news, I started some reading about baby-- a book called "The Attachment Connection: Parenting a Secure and Confident Child Using the Science of Attachment Theory"-- by Ruth Newton.
The psychology nerd in me is absolutely eating up the combination of neuropsych, attachment theory research, and discussions about the formation of emotional/social intelligence.
And at the same time, the author is mindful to incorporate practical parenting implications of the research for stages prenatal-5 years old.
I'm loving it, to say the least.

Come on spring, and come on baby!
