I am a lot more tired this time around and I am sure it because our activity level is higher this time around, nothing more. All of my appointments have gone really well, the baby is growing well and I am feeling pretty good. For those wondering - no we are not finding out what we are having much to many people's dismay. But, we are excited to hear the announcement in the delivery room.
For the time being we had an ultra sound yesterday and saw the sweetness that lies within. The baby is now measuring one and a half pounds and doing good. I can feel some good little kicks now, a ton of movement and am learning the perkier parts of their day vs the quieter parts. Holly has had a lot of fun feeling for kicks, she is getting very excited for sure.
We are beginning to work on the babies room - prepping for some lighting work, touch ups and then a good paint job - then we can begin setting things up some. Our hope is to have a majority of the work done prior to the holidays so that we are just ready when the holidays simmer down... then we can just focus on the few little things and enjoying those final days with Holly before the new addition. When we start making some changes to the room I'll post some photos.

Holly: "I don't like steak anymore"
Me: "What do you mean? You used to love steak."
Holly: "No Mom, I don't like all that juice stuff that is on it."
Me: "When did that happen?"
Holly: "Mom, when I was a little kid I liked steak. You told me that when I get older my tastes change. Now I don't like steak."
Me: "Huh..." <---trying not to laugh
Holly: "Sorry Mom, that is just how life is."
The wisdom of a four year old!

Holly was beyond thrilled to get a start in the kids zone enjoying the corn pit. She loves the sea of corn to romp in, bury herself in and use the little scoops in. This year though it was dusty... really, really dusty. She came out completely covered in a film of white corn dust. Her black socks looked like a creamy color, her dark blue jeans were super light blue... it was kind of blech. But, she had fun and that is what counts, right?Yes, those were black... as in *new* black socks. LOL!
