Well, we've made it halfway.  I'm officially at the halfway point of my pregnancy!  My first trimester seemed to crawl by, I think partly because we kept it quiet for so long.  And now, here I am - halfway to meeting the newest member of our family.

Also, in the interest of keeping it real - try not to judge the cluttered backdrop of my bathroom.  And yes, that's Beckett's little tush in the lower right hand corner.

We're still working on a name for this little guy - it feels like we are being total slackers not having one already, but I think that's only because we've known that he was a he for almost 2 months now.

I've been feeling really good - not needing to nap as much, preferring alone time to sleep time so I can catch up on reading or cleaning or DVR'd shows.  The last few weeks I've been ridiculously hungry, which just hit me for the first time in the pregnancy, so I'm sure my doctor will raise an eyebrow next time I step on the scale.  Ha.

I read this quote recently, and it made me smile.  I love the encouragement to shift how we think about pregnancy.

"If I had my life to live over, instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside of me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle."

  2. So happy for you. My Grandmother used to say all the time that she loved being pregnant because she got to personally help God with a miracle. Have you seen the movie What to Expect? I wish I could have been a magical pregnancy unicorn. lol. I was so far from it. But you look mighty close :)

    1. HA - I have seen that movie, but I can't remember the unicorn part. I might need to rewatch it!
