14 Weeks!

The first baby belly pictures!  Granted, this may not be all baby, but you get the idea – I have no will power and find it difficult to say “no” to any and all cravings. :p


Also… cupcakes!  Because they are awesome! And Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!  Sorry, that’s about the extent of the excitement around here for now.

We may need to get out more often…

Hooray Productivity!

It was nice to finally feel well enough to be really productive this past weekend. Josh and I got some shopping done, including a second bookcase for the sitting room so that way our shelves would match. They’re a little big for the space, but we don’t plan on staying there permanently, so it works for now. Once we unloaded the shelves we already had… it was clear I’d have to find a place for everything right away.

I think I still need to do a bit more rearranging of the actual items on the shelves, but I’m in no rush right now.

We moved the mismatched bookshelf that we replaced into what will hopefully start to resemble a nursery in a few months. It’s kind of a scary place for everything we don’t have room for anywhere else at the moment, so it looks like I need to sit down and actually go through stuff and do some major purging. I’m a really awful packrat, so there’s a lot to go through. I’ll just have to lock myself in the room and force myself to do it since it’s so easy to put off. Granted, I’ve been a little busy, but it has to be done before we can buy nursery furniture, so that’s pretty good motivation to do so.

As for hearing the baby’s heartbeat last week… so amazing.  It’s so strange to think that I have this tiny little being growing inside of me right now.


What can I say? Not much is new, which is unusual for us. Normally we’d be out doing things, but I’m a tad worn out lately. We’re nearing the end of the 1st trimester, though, and next week we should hear baby’s heartbeat for the first time! We’re really excited about it, and I’m excited at the prospect of feeling a little better in the upcoming weeks (fingers crossed).

In the meantime, though, I kind of just want to do this all day:

Cats have the life.

Now, bring on Fall!  I actually really like Fall… snuggling up with a cup of hot cider or a glass of milk and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, plus the colors of the changing leaves. The only thing that would make it complete would be cooler temperatures – what’s up with this weather? Normally I like 80 degree temps, but I’m kind of ready for sweater weather now!
