This is just a quick update.
* We had a great weekend with our friends in town for Sing Song. Blake & Moriah drove in from Nashville, and it was sooo good to spend some time with them. I am so thankful that they could take time out of their busy lives to make a long trip to Abilene. Also, Jen & Hayden and Erika came for the weekend and stayed with us. They threw a surprise shower for me on Saturday morning. When I get the pictures from that I will update in more detail. It was very sweet!
* I had my 25 week appointment today. Everything looks great so far. The Dr. is already checking for early labor signs, but I don't have any symptoms or signals of early labor- yay!
* I am blessed...or lucky. This pregnancy has been soo much fun for me. I have been able to enjoy every part of it, and it has been very smooth and peace-filled. My favorite thing right now is being able to feel them move around. I am beginning to know the difference between a kick, a punch, a roll, or a snuggle. Their movement kept me up a couple nights ago until about 2 am. At first I was so frustrated, but then I began to think about how much I prayed for these lives and how thankful I am for them. I started to think that I will never be able to feel TWO lives inside of me again (hopefully!), and so I decided to just embrace their movements and find joy through it all. I think I smiled more during the hours of midnight-2 am than I ever have before.
* I have not blogged about our other "child" for awhile. Duke is getting so big, and he is such a sweet dog. His favorite things to do right now are run around the back yard with a small section of the water hose in his mouth, fall asleep on top of my feet when I am sitting on the couch, follow me around the house everywhere (I think he is in the separation-anxiety stage), and bother Zach when he is trying to sleep in his recliner. Here are some pics of Duke...he will be one at the end of June.
