19.5 Weeks

At the request of a few people I have decided to include a new picture of baby and me. This is me completely natural: No makeup, hair is still wet from the shower, and I am wearing the "comfy clothes" that I normally don when I am at home all day. I figured this would give a more accurate portrayal of what pregnancy really looks like, and I also noticed that I had grabbed a once-upon-a-time-it-fit shirt that would show how much I have grown.

Otherwise, life keeps plodding along. I spent a lot of time in the back two rooms last night. I had Dave do all the heavy lifting but I did all the sorting and organizing. It won't be long and we will have our study ready to use and the baby's room will be empty and ready to prepare for our daughter.

And as a point of business, for those of you who keep asking about a baby shower, I will let you know as soon as I can about a date. I first have to wait for my sister to settle her bridal shower dates. (Yes, my family is having quite the year: Second daughter getting married, new son-in-law, and then a first grandchild! We couldn't possibly feel more blessed.)

P.S. Funniest thing: I was just looking out the window when I saw a huge Buck walk through our front yard. Suddenly he looked startled and agitated and then I saw why: Papa Goose was chasing him and Mama Goose was standing there squaking! Nothing quite like seeing a little black goose head go bobbing in the brush after a huge deer.
