Week 22

(excuse the terrible bathroom picture {hence the B&W to try to cover it up}--it was the best I could do)

Well, I"m a slacker this week--but better late than never right? I do have a good excuse---all last week I was with the fam while the hubs was out of town. AND, I didn't pack the laptop or the chalkboard. So here we are at Tuesday, 22 weeks and 5 days, and I STILL haven't written a post. Anywho, little man is moving up a storm and I am loving every.single.minute. It is so amazing to finally feel this little person that the Lord is creating inside me! What's even MORE amazing is that within a week of feeling him for the first time, he was kicking strong enough for others to feel from the outside! My mom, grandmothers, aunts, friends, and my hubby all got to feel the sweet baby kicks---if I feel this much love now, I am sure my heart will absolutely explode when he finally makes his debut into this world. One thing I have noticed this week is I am starting to tire more easily--staying busy and on my feet for 3 measly hours is enough to make me feel like I could collapse on the couch for the rest of the day. Kudos to all the working moms-to-be out there--my respect and admiration of you has just increased by 1,000!

Here we go:
