9 months

Today Finn is 9 months old. I can hardly believe it. He's been out as long as he was in! Although I can remember life before him, it's difficult to imagine life without him.

He's feeling a little better today. Still sleeping a lot, and I'm still giving him Tylenol/Codeine every few hours and sticking an ice pack in his diaper, poor little guy. However, he's in better spirits today and has had some smiles for me :) He also played on his playmat for a while and was blowing raspberries :D He doesn't seem to have any interest in turning over right now - can't say I blame him. I'm sure his tummy is quite sore.


This was me around this time last year. I was 27 weeks pregnant and people were already starting to react in a shocked fashion when I would tell them I still had 3 months to go. My friends lied to me out of kindness and I'm sure to reassure me (friends will do that!), and told me that I didn't look that big. Come on, folks! Seriously, I was huge! (Already developing polyhydramnios, which I didn't know until much later.) I didn't think anything was wrong, although I couldn't shake the suspicion that I was carrying twins, even though I had had 2 ultrasounds that only revealed one baby. In the end, I measured just 2 cm shy of what I measured full term with the twins.

Keep on healin', Finn, and happy 9 months! The pics of you pregnant, Lisa, reminded me that it has been almost exactly 1 year since we last saw one another (too long!) and you took me out for fondue. Remember both of us pregnant and playing in the park with our kids? Remember the twins going to the public restroom? I miss you so much and am sad that because of our buying the house, etc. we will not have a trip to SoCal this spring.
