17 weeks...

...and 23 to go. Well, actually 21 because I'll be having the baby earlier. But still, not even half-way there and I'm getting pretty darn big. (insert cringy-face here) I didn't realize how big, either, until this past week. It was gorgeous out on Saturday so we (and my camera) were outside a lot. While out, Neil shot a picture of me, while I did a belly self-portrait of myself. This baby is so active and obviously growing quite well. I am getting even more anxious as the days approach to the big ultrasound in just 9 days now. It couldn't come quick enough!


And while playing outside on this same day, it began to sprinkle. The kids automatically ran for the umbrellas although they weren't even really needed. (What is it with umbrellas, anyway?)


And then last Thursday, Heather and I went baby registering (for her, not me. Although I did try and get her to scan the bar codes twice so maybe she'd get two of some things to give to her favorite preggie friend -- me. She never did do it and I'm not sure why?? :)) So while there, we found the funniest most fitting bib for my child. Isn't it great?!

Got Ketchup?

Val, you look beautiful! Have you thought of any baby names yet? Are you still having to give yourself the Lovenox injections? I love the bib! Take care!

The bib reminds me of a few weeks ago I had a fit because I wanted Ketchup and the bag from the store that had it disappeared. I was so mad! It made me think of you..hehe I cannot believe the big ultrasound is coming so soon, that means mine is right around the cornor as well. The prediction thus far is boy!
