Because when wine tasting isn't an option, you go olive oil tasting instead.
I'm in a weird place somewhere in-between "this is going way too fast, someone please slow this whole thing down so I can figure stuff out" and "okay this has gone on long enough, someone please get this baby out so I remember what it feels like to be normal again."
- Finding out Baby Jacobs is a BOY. Opening the envelope with Chris and finding out we'll be adding a little guy to the fam was so surreal, but at the same time, I felt like, "Well of course you're a boy! Duh." This whole journey so far has been insane, but no matter how scary and confusing it gets, the further along I get I keep having more and more moments of, "Of course it's supposed to be this way. Of course this is what's supposed to happen."
- Taking a weekend road trip. The picture above is from an olive oil tasting bar. I repeat, an olive oil tasting bar. So, that's something you need to add to your bucket list. Chris and I went to a little town about 45 minutes away for a day-trip on Saturday, and it was one of the best days we've had in a long time. There were vintage stores and flea markets and an old bookstore-turned restaurant. It was magical, and it made me so excited to think about all the adventures we'll go on once the little guy is here.
- We started his library this week! We found a vintage bookstore on our trip, and Chris asked if I wanted to get the babe some books. Um, yes please. These are the first things we've bought for him together, and it was so sweet.
Bambi, because of course he needs all the Disney books. The Poky Little Puppy because my little brother was obsessed with that one when we were little, so I'm hoping this kid is too. And This is my Family is a book Chris and I both had. This kid is going to have an excellent library.
18 weeks down, 22(ish) weeks to go. Baby Boy Jacobs, I can't wait to read to you.
