Moving Right Along

I think everyone has received the news by now - it certainly didn't take long once we told a few people! It is wonderful to share this with all of you and we LOVE how excited everyone is. It makes it even more wonderful and exciting for us! The sonogram pictures are a huge hit! If you haven't seen them yet, don't worry! We take them with us everywhere, so you will see them the next time you see us!

I am 11 weeks today, so the first trimester is wrapping up. I have gained four pounds which is right on schedule. It's annoying, though, since I don't look pregnant yet - I just look like I gained four pounds! I am still craving fruit - kudos to all of you who have it ready for me when I come to your homes! You are awesome!

We spent a very relaxing weekend with our friends Toby and Leslie who have 3 year old twins and John and Terri who have an eight month old. I got a lot of very good first hand information regarding pregnancy, birth and the weeks following. That was very valuable to me. My husband also received information, but I think it mostly involved warnings of volatile hormones!

All in all, things are going very well here, so there's not a lot to report. I am anxious to start shopping, so we may head out to Babies R Us this week. Other than that, there's just not much going on. I'm eating a lot of fruit and complaining about the four extra pounds!

Do you crave Whataburger at all? What bout the Skillet or IHOP? I am not even pregnant yet am craving both of them at the moment. A double meat Whataburger with a milkshake? a plate full of eggs, bacon, hash browns and pancakes from IHOP.

Be happy that it's only 4 lbs. right now....10 years from now you will look back and say "What was I griping about back then, I looked great!" Been there done that.
