7.5 months this week! So exciting :). The baby growing like a weed! The doctor was concerned that my bump was too small, but after an ultrasound we found out the baby is really a week ahead of the 'norm'. What an answer to prayer. Still no name, but we love him dearly anyway.
His nursery is coming together and I'm so happy to look forward to his daddy's return soon. I've had so many wonderful friends and family help me at the house it's been incredible. We are so blessed to have such supportive and encouraging friends to help me with the house during this deployment.
The lilies are a part of my very first Mother's Day gift! I felt so special receiving that beautiful bouquet to help celebrate this new adventure.

Do I look pregnant or what? Strangers are still a little tentative, but pretty sure they can ask, 'When are you due?' I still can't believe there is a tiny little man growing inside of me. It's really just too wild to even imagine.
I just got back from 2 weeks visiting friends and family in Colorado Springs and had a wonderful time! I am so blessed with special friends and a great family to support me. A big group of friends and mentors got together and prayed for me and the baby, and it was a huge blessing. I hope I can learn to be an encouragement to them, too!
While I was in the Springs my parents and my brother Mason all got to feel the baby going crazy. It is so fun to be able to share that with them! He is getting stronger every day, and now I can just start to see him moving my belly around when I look down sometimes.
I am still having a great time going to 'normal person' yoga a few times a week, but I get worse and worse every class as the baby gets bigger. This is a little annoying for the over-achiever in me. At least I'm trying to stay in shape! :)
