Is this part of nesting?

Lately I've been feeling particularly anti-social. It's not that I don't like people, it's just that I only have so much energy. Right now I'm not the one making plans or calling to stay in touch. I am ridiculously in love with my husband, my daughter & little fetus-face, and I just feel like I want to make my world as small as possible. So, if I've been a sucky friend, daughter, sister, visiting teacher, neighbor, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, blog-stalker, customer, aquaintance, etc., I'm very sorry. I'll probably be back to normal one day. I don't know. Has anyone else felt like this?

Sawyer & I have extended out St. George weekend to 10 days. Matt is coming Friday night to pick us up, bless his heart, and we've been having such a great time. I love love love being with her & just taking the time to really discover who she is becoming. I just relish these times & am so grateful that my time with her as my only child was extended more than I'd planned. She is the most forgiving, kind, loving, thoughtful little soul I've ever known. She wants to do what's right & once she knows what that is, I don't seem to have to worry about her. What a gift she is.

On her first hike. She did awesome, it was great. My little mountain goat.

Playing in the showers at the parade of homes was her favorite part. That & finding candy in the garages.

Lunch at 25 Main. "Girl cheese" sandwich & cupcakes.

Ryan is coming home from Vegas Friday night. You could probably squish in his truck if Matt isn't up for the drive.

i'm the same way. after having will i'm happy to just soak in all my time with him.

Oh, yes. I hermeted away and didn't really want to see anyone. I basically gave the rest of the world the finger and wrapped my arms around my little family... trying to soak in every minute detail of the little life that I had before it changed drastically. It is so important to do that. I am so glad that I am not the only one that did that while prego. You could not talk to me for a year and I would still love you...because I would know that there would be a damn good reason that you weren't talking to me. enjoy this little window of time with Sawyer, it'll be gone soon and your attention will be split (unfortunately) unevenly between the two bambinos. I love your pregnant little self. xo

I have so been that way. I go through phases where I phase everyone else out because I have to make my world small to soak it all in, and to take care of business. That's so great that you have done that with Sawyer, because really, we all understand and fully support all that stuff. I feel that way right now too, but because I feel a little crappy....however, it's getting better little by little I like to think. Love you and thanks for letting us crash with you and for taking us to that ridiculously yummy breakfast place. LOVED THAT!!! I love to see you be a mom, you make me want to be a better one :) LOVE YOU! Also, it's hard to imagine spreading out your time and love between two kids, but really, there will be enough love to go around, I promise :)

Now I don't feel so bad that you haven't returned my call! ;o)

That is so fun that just you and Sawyer are on a littly mommy- daughter trip! I love that! And I must say, I LOVE 25 Main!! Hope to see you all soon!

I know exactly how you feel! I have totally holed up in our little house and shut off my phone and yeah, Kiersten put it best, gave the world the finger! ha ha!

No worries, it's nice to know that your friendships aren't based upon how often you call, or see each other, but upon a deeper connection that can't really be severed by time or circumstance.
