27 Weeks Pregnant
I am now 27 weeks pregnant and am still feeling good. Fatigue is my biggest problem and I am hoping it will subside once baby girl is born. I feel her move everyday and it is such a relief. She has poked me rather uncomfortably a few times, to the point where I actually yelled out in pain. Leo asks to kiss his sister everyday and he always says, "mommy, she's kicking." He calls her by name and even sings a little theme song we made up about her.
Speaking of singing, Leo has been our little song bird. He loves to belt out the "good guy" and the "bad guy" theme music to Star Wars. When I say belt out, I am not exaggerating. He is LOUD!!! He is also way off tune, but that's part of the charm. Also, Leo's knowledge of Star Wars has surpassed mine (not that that is saying a whole lot).
Leo also made up his first joke. There are these giant walking robots in Star Wars called At-Ats. Leo's joke is the following: "Where are the At-Ats at?" He tells this joke to anyone who will listen.
Leo now talks exclusively in sentences. His command of the language has grown leaps and bounds over the last few months. He still confuses a few phrases such as " Mommy hold you," when he wants me to pick him up. It is so endearing. Another very cute Leo habit is holding my face. He loves to cradle my face with both his hands, especially when it is nap time or he just needs some extra love. It melts my heart.
We just had Joe's brother come to town from Colorado for OSU's orientation. He stayed with us a couple nights and Joe accompanied him to the orientation for 2 days. Leo had a blast hanging with his cool younger uncle and was really sad to see him leave. Luckily, Aaron will start attending OSU is the fall and we will be able to hang with him more often.
