I can’t believe the last time I blogged was April. Ridiculous! And I have no real excuse except for the fact that 1. I run a full-time business, 2. I also have a 2.5 year old who constantly keeps me on my toes, 3. I have a hubby and a home that I have to keep happy and, oh yeah, 4. I’M PREGNANT!! 22 weeks pregnant now, and we’re having another little boy we’ve decided to name Cameron Day Jaroscak. Beyond! Thrilled!!
If you follow me on social media you’ve known this for some time. We found out the end of February and although the first trimester was AWFUL for me (24/7 “morning” sickness), it’s been a really healthy and relatively pregnancy. I can tell you that the 2nd time around is MUCH different and more difficult than the first. I enjoyed every minute of my pregnancy with Cohen, 3 years ago. However, this time around I’ve been so busy trying to keep up with him that I barely remember how many weeks I am or (except for the fact that the baby’s kicking like crazy now and I’m huge), I forget that I’m even pregnant.
I feel awful (as most 2nd-time mothers do), that I haven’t dedicated the time to sit back and enjoy this pregnancy the way I did before. When I was pregnant with Cohen I kept up with a blog called “We’re Having a Baby, My Baby and Me” (wink and nod to one of my favorite ‘I Love Lucy’ episodes). I updated it weekly, wrote a special entry ‘letter’ to Cohen every month and loved it then. but love it even more now going back and reading it. While I don’t have the time or energy to devote to one this go-round, I thought I’d share Cohen’s blog with those of you who haven’t read it yet. It’s hilarious and embarrassingly honest, so keep an open mind…and enjoy!!
