Great Expectations!

DH and I are so happy to share that we're expecting a little bundle of joy on November 8th! We are very excited and a little overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done in the next 4 months, but I am sure we will manage just like everybody else does. The 20-week ultrasound looked great. It was so neat to be able to see baby's head, eyes, spine, chambers of the heart, kidneys, hands and feet. We were so glad to see that all looked well with our little peanut.

To answer some of the typical questions... I have been feeling great and was very blessed to be free of any morning sickness (far from what I expected!). I'm about 22 weeks along now, and have been feeling baby moving around maybe the last week or so - particularly in the last two days I have been feeling actually pokes, and DH felt one today! Maybe a little hand or foot? We are not going to find out if it is a boy or girl - waiting for a surprise, and making two lists of names. Our new kitten has been good mommy and daddy practice for us - she has unending energy and has trained us to be watchful and up at all times of night. I think architecture school was probably good training for me too - good to get a refresher on being up all hours of the night again. Otherwise, things have been pretty uneventful, but I'll try to make note of any interesting happenings.

As for our holiday weekend, we enjoyed the Marietta fireworks with some friends last night, and then early this morning, DH ran his 9th Peachtree Road Race. The weather was perfect for the run, and SIL and I had an enjoyable time watching the race for DH to come by my usual spectating spot at Colony Square. Happy Independence Day, and thanks to all the men and women in our armed forces who protect our freedom each and every day!
