There's nothing too much to report at this update. I made the rounds of the maternity/thrift stores in the area once more since my last post and found a good amount of maternity clothes to supplement the three pieces I found last time. All tops this time, but that's fine as I have a good number of lounge pants that are still comfy to wear around the house.
Baby G is kicking much stronger and I'm feeling it much more often. It always makes me smile! :) I'm already so in love with this kid. Haha, of course I am, though. I fall in love with kids pretty easily.
On that note, last Thursday was my last day of work at my nanny job. I worked for this family for more than a year and I can't believe how much "my boys" have grown and changed in that time. It was so hard to hug them goodbye and leave at the end of the day, but I'll definitely stay in touch with them and their family.
One thing I've been thinking about throughout this pregnancy so far is how I'm going to feel having my own child. I've taken care of and loved so many other children during my teens and twenties, calling many of them "my babies/kids," and loving a very special few so much that, had my situation been different at those times, I would have very seriously considered adopting them. I've had so many people tell me (both before getting pregnant and since) that I just won't be able to believe how much I will love this baby (and subsequent ones, of course), but I have a hard time understanding how it could be all that much more than other kids that I've loved, especially the ones that I've loved enough to consider adopting. Maybe it's just a different kind of love. I don't know, but it will be interesting to see how I feel once this baby is placed in my arms.
