A week or two ago, Matt came home and exclaimed, "Whoa. You really look pregnant now."
I took it as a compliment. I know that's what he intended it to be.
But yeah, I looked in the mirror and was like, You have GOT to be kidding me. Last Saturday (fourth of July weekend) was my first fairly uncomfortable day, and thankfully my friend Mary warned me about this "round ligament pain" that I woke up experiencing on Saturday morning, and it lasted through much of the weekend. I just felt like I was...getting bigger. No other way to explain it. And as you can see...yep, I'm growing all right!
So yah, here I am at 23.5 weeks (eeks!!! I've taken care of 23 weekers! I know what they look like and what they do and they can be spunky little critters!) and I feel quite good, thank the Lord! I've gotten some decorations for the room, started my registries (still need to tweak them though) at Target, Babies R Us, and Ecobuns.com, and am just trying to be diligent in methodically getting stuff ready so I don't have one big freak-attack in the last month.
I'm sorry I haven't blogged in quite some time. It seems lately like on my days off, so many things come up and I'm scrambling to get them done before the sun already goes down again, and I'm on my way back to work the next day. I'm trying to be super-fruit-picker-and-freezer, so as fruit comes in season I'm heading to the u-pick farms and stocking up. I'm trying to clean and organize stuff and foresee the little things that I'll need to buy or complete as the weeks quickly tick by. And I'm trying to be available to my precious friends and church, for when those last-minute needs come up...my days are numbered where I can just drop everything and help babysit, clean a house, or fill in for some other random need! So I'm not trying to be a blogging delinquent!! I promise I will blog soon with more of what's going on with us lately, etc.
