One night when we were at the beach, I was doing the bedtime routine with her (brush teeth, read books, snuggle and sing or pray until she's ready to get in bed) and I asked her what she wanted me to sing about.
So I made up a song about dishes. That's a lot harder than you'd think. I tried to change the song and sing about her instead "Bekah, I think you're special..." "No. Dishes".

She says a lot of funny stuff like that right now. Yesterday I was eating some trail mix with her and I shook the bag out into my hand little by little. When three chocolates came out at once she said "NO WAY!" She has the best sense of humor. Luke and I love catching this one face she makes when she knows she is being funny. :) She's also so nurturing right now... watching her interact with her baby dolls makes me want to cry! haha. And she loves singing "Baby" by Justin Bieber.
Right now, I'm 32 weeks pregnant with our second daughter. As a reminder, she just moved so strong in my belly that it visibly shifted as I typed. I'm looking forward to sharing her pretty name when she arrives in August. The past few weeks have been kind of funny with this pregnancy. I've hit a few rough spots, nothing major but just a bunch of yucky-feeling days. At the same time, my joy and sense of expectancy about meeting this little girl has really taken over the fear or worry about our transition to two children. We keep saying that having two girls just feels so right. Luke and I love imaging what she'll be like and what it will be like to have two girls. Whenever I picture her, I picture her with brown hair. In her ultrasound pictures, she definitely resembled Luke... can't wait to see her sweet face.
I started visiting my new midwife's office last month and that has been a total blessing. I had a great experience with my care surrounding Bekah's birth with doctors at a hospital, but this feels like a much better fit. I'll still be delivering at a hospital but under the care of a midwife. At my first appointment meeting her, she shared a poem with me including our little girl's name. Their care is so friendly and personal... like they really want to get to know you as a person before going through such a big life event together. I'm due August 11th, so we're praying for a full term pregnancy and totally healthy mama and baby.
That's about all that is going on in my head this morning. :) We're looking forward to celebrating Luke, my Dad, and my father-in-law tomorrow for Father's Day. What are you up to this weekend? Any recent mama-thoughts and stories to share?
