I spend (or used to spend) a lot of time on the floor with Isabella. Most moms of toddlers do. However, it's getting increasingly difficult for me to stand up without significant physical effort, or bend over to pick something up for that matter, hence the "pregnant-woman grunting." I am only 22 weeks. The babies are probably a pound each and shorter than a ruler.
It's going to be a long couple of months.
My complexion hasn't gotten any better since last month. In fact, it's gotten worse. I find a new giant, honking zit on my face nearly every single day. I am pretty. Oh, so very pretty.
And in mental health news, Isabella had a massive tantrum in the parking lot of the library a few weeks ago. She refused to hold my hand while walking to our car. I attempted to pick her up, while balancing a diaper bag on the back, two books in one hand, and my keys in the other. She went completely limp, making it impossible to pick her up. I had to drop everything in my hands to heave her thrashing body under my right arm before she darted in front of a car, while some kind stranger picked up my keys and books from the ground. She was crying and so was I, not because of her behavior, but because I realized in that moment that I had absolutely no idea how I would ever be able to handle going anywhere with a toddler and two infants by myself.
On the positive front (I swear, I'm not this whiny 24/7, unless you're talking to my husband who might give you some very false information about my temperament), we have acquired a second bouncy seat, donated by a friend whose grandchild no longer uses it. Score!
And there's been some discussion on the baby name front. I'm planning a post on it soon, but I will say we are close to having a name for the girl, and one of your suggestions might be a winner. Maybe.
I'll leave you with a photo of my enormous gut. I am resisting the urge to post the comparison photo of my first pregnancy at 22 weeks, but if you're as fascinated by belly shots (and the huge difference between singleton and twin pregnancy sizes) as I am, you can check it out here.
