I know I haven't been around here much.. but I just wanted to drop in and give a quick update of how things are going over here.
First of all, Lee and I had a lovely Christmas. Christmas is just so fun being married to your very best friend.. I can only imagine how fun it will be when we have a little one! I really love how Lee and I have tried to keep a fairly simple Christmas around here. Of course we can do better.. the important part is to really keep the focus off of ourselves and onto Christ. Something we need to work on everyday.
The day after Christmas, we spent time with some extended family and then we headed to North Carolina to visit even more family. We had such a great time!
I am now in my 19th week of pregnancy! Woohoo :) We had our second appointment with our midwife yesterday. It went wonderfully.. we also got to hear our sweet little ones heartbeat again. That sound is nothing short of perfection.
I'm amazed at how fast this pregnancy is going. Next week I will be at the half-way mark. I can't even wrap my brain around that!
In REALLY exciting news, today was the first day that Lee and I both felt the baby kick our hand!!! It was such a special, beautiful moment between the three of us.
For the past week or so, I had been feeling strange little bubbles.. almost like gas bubbles but not quite. I was pretty sure that was the baby. But feeling those tiny little kicks today totally just confirmed that our little one is swimming around freely in there!
I really am sorry for the lack of blogging these past few months. There has been so much going on around here, and it makes it hard to actually sit down and write out a post. I really need to get back into my blogging groove.. writing is such a great outlet for me and I know that I will especially love looking back during this time in our lives and reading my thoughts and random updates.
I know I say this a lot, but really, thank you to all of you who have stuck with me during this dry spell!
Oh! one more thing, I plan to put bump pictures up soon!
