24 Weeks!!!

Time is just flying by. I can't believe I am 24 weeks now. May seemed like a blur.

Excuse the hair. I just got out of the shower this morning when I took this.

I am feeling the best physically I have since finding out I was pregnant (iron pills are a great thing!!!). I am still very emotional. God has been working in some areas of my life too. I am trying not to take on the problems of the world but instead to focus on God, myself and my family. Not always an easy task. I like to be there for people and try to fix things (probably why I became a nurse). But it has been taking its toll on me. I have not been very peaceful during this pregnancy and I came to the conclusion that, that is going to change. Chris has been really after me about this and it's about time I listen.

Lots of reorganizing going on around the house. Chris has finished painting the "new" schoolroom and I have been working the last few days going through ALL my school books. I know the direction I want to go for the next school year. It is a matter of now seeing what I have and ordering the new stuff.

Chris put together the bassinet this week.

This wasn't the original plan but I opened the box up and pulled everything out to see if it came with a mattress. Since I had it out he figured he would put it together. It is now in our bedroom. Putting it together brought the growing belly to a realization-----there is going to be a baby here soon!!! : )

On Wednesday, Chris, Zachary and Alex all got to feel baby Nicholas kick. I have been feeling him kick for 8 weeks now, but the kicks are getting stronger and this was the first time they could be felt from the outside so clearly.

Well that is what's new on the baby front. I go to the doctor's on Wednesday for my belly check.

Ah, yes, there's just something about setting up the baby stuff that makes it seem so much more *real*! :)

Congrats, and I'm glad to hear you're feeling better physically. Enjoy the last few weeks!
