Thank you all for your prayers and words of encouragement on my last post. As I knew would happen, I had four people contact me whose babies also had choroid plexus cysts- and all went away and were born completely healthy. My worry and anxiety has dramatically decreased, and I’ve just decided not to worry about it until there’s a reason to worry. And honestly, I don’t have room in my brain to stress about it right now; Grayson’s surgery is a week from today and that’s enough to occupy my thoughts these days!
Today was supposed to be normal. I dropped the kids off at school, went and got a bagel, and headed to my doctors appointment. I’m 19 weeks, 2 days pregnant, and had my anatomy scan this morning.
I sure am glad today is about over. It wasn’t necessarily a bad day, just exhausting. I spent the entire day with Grayson, which I love, and rarely get to do because he goes to school 5 days a week, but wow, he wears me out.
I don’t want to jinx anything, or risk sounding smug because we are barely 3 months in, but I have to say it: so far, I absolutely adore age 2. Since having Grayson, I always thought of myself as a baby person, but now I think maybe I’m a two-year-old person. I think I’ll just keep this version of Charlotte (well, let’s potty train her first) forever.
It has been a really fun Easter “season” this year. The weather has been gorgeous in Houston the past few weeks, and Charlotte is at an age where we can really participate in things like egg hunts. I didn’t put any pressure on myself to go all out for Easter- I bought Charlotte a bucket at Hobby Lobby, didn’t buy any new church clothes for the kids, and didn’t even do the Easter Bunny this year- and that’s ok. The kids got plenty of Easter goodies at school, church and from grandparents. All in all, it’s been a wonderful week celebrating spring, family and friends, and the resurrection.
Big Bunny Party at church last weekend. The first hour was for special needs families- we had a blast!
