How was your weekend?
I'm sorry I didn't pop in to say hello.
I am 6 months pregnant today and my little world seems to be a roller coaster of emotions.
I gifted myself this little Emily Martin note card set last week because I desperately need to be reminded that I am the bee's knees right now (I also love how she styled this photograph, it makes me happy).
At the beginning of this lucky year, 2011, I declared it to be my Year Of The Fire Engine.
I laugh about that now and joke that my Year Of The Fire Engine got me pregnant.
Truly though, I've been going from extreme highs to extreme lows over the weekend.
Most of my extreme highs involve my husband and Bono Baby.
I will suddenly feel overwhelmingly blessed for all that I have.
I see my Daniel in a whole new light and I fall in love with him all over again every 30 minutes, it seems.
Bono Baby gets prettier every day.
I am amazed by how generous and loving my family and friends are to my little family.
Then there are my low moments were I feel like the biggest slug.
I go into these long self loathing fits where I am frustrated with just about everything about myself.
Why do I do that to myself?
Why do we all do that to ourselves?
I need to find a way to feel like a Fire Engine even though I am 6 months into making a Baby Coco.
I'm not sure how to make those low moments go away right now but just sitting down and writing this to you is helping me.
I am going to go wash my hair (with the fancy shampoo) and attempt to paint my toenails.
I'm even going to wear my fancy silk robe around the house for the evening.
It's fancy pants time.
p.s. I want you all to know that I truly believe that you are the bee's knees.
You are Fire Engines always.
