25 weeks!!




The first you can barely tell there is a belly. Thank goodness for side shots. I have gained about 10 pounds thus far, which puts me about the same range as I was with Kieran and Ryker when I gained about 23 total with them. I have one more appt. that is every 4 weeks with my midwife and then I will be going to every 2 weeks. Can't believe it's going by so fast.

In mourning




I finally broke down and went and got Ryker a real hair cut. It was so sad seeing his little curls being cut away. He felt like such a big boy though. He looks so much older now too. It was like a total makeover though. I do miss the long hair. :(

24 weeks belated


Welcome Baby Creed Asher!

And no he isn't mine, he is my new nephew. Born to my sister in law who is married to Steven's brother. They also had three children before this one and recently all moved to Malaysia for Charlie's work. Hopefully I can see him before he gets too big.

Congrats Charlie and Hollie.

Heat and boredom have produced....

A new layout that is both calm and soothing. Ahhhhh!

Summer can bite me...


But I believe it already has. Pregnant or not I can barely go outside. Luck would have it that I am in my forced vacation where work has not picked up in a couple of weeks. So of course I find myself stuck inside as much as humanly possible. Wednesday it rained and it was awesome. I was actually able to get out and do stuff. Went to go get my license renewed apparently everyone had that idea so I abandoned it for the time being and hopefully will get it done before my birthday next month. The kids have been going to a Bible Club in our neighborhood every evening this week. Steven has had to go with them as I cannot. I did go Wednesday as it was much cooler. They swam after it was over tonight and I had to bring Ryker's life jacket. While it was only a block away I still managed to get drained from walking in this heat, and I had ice water with me. That's another thing, I am probably drinking about a gallon or more of the stuff daily and my appetite is plummeting. I haven't had any pregnancy cravings in days. It sucks.

I have been reading a lot and trying to relax. I went ahead and applied for some positions that were similar to the IFS contract we had. I had an interview last Friday with the company that took our contracts but haven't heard anything since. I figure my bulging belly doesn't help things. Sigh. I did receive word from another agency that they have PRN or part time positions available which is ideal considering my private practice and still doing some counseling contracts with my current small agency. I really don't want to let either of them go.

As of today I am 23 weeks along, which only gives me approx. 14-17 weeks left. That's actually exciting to think about. Seems time is starting to fly. Another thing to look for around that time is cooler weather. I am so ready for fall.
