Oh, Baby, the Places You'll Go!!

The proverbial "they" say that the morning sickness (for most women) ends with the first trimester between 12 and 14 weeks.  At twelve weeks, it seemed like it wouldn't end.  But today marks 14 weeks into the pregnancy, and yesterday was a fantastic day!  Susan even signed up for a retreat at church this next weekend.

The Baby Race

Since we've posted this blog, we've found out about several friends who are expecting children near our due date.  Susan's friend and roommate in college Amber will probably win the race, as she is due in the middle of August.  My Americorps NCCC teammate, Loretta, is expecting her second child in early September.  And Randy (a former co-worker) and Hannah, are expecting their third child in early September.  So, please also keep Babies Grace, Morgan, and Klingelheber in your prayers as well.

Oh, Baby, the Places You'll Go!!!

A book to be read in utero!

Our friend Lyleen recently gave us a great book.  It is written in the rythmic style of Dr. Seuss, and inspired by one of his books.  Only, this is a book to be read in utero!  It is a great introduction to the many worlds created by Dr. Seuss.


Well, the dining room and living room are finished.  The walls have been painted new oak finish pergo floor is installed, and the trim is up.  Next up is the kitchen, followed by the bathroom.  Our kitchen desparately needs some work.  We are going to be painting the cabinets and walls, installing a ceramic tile counter, and bringing the pergo into the kitchen.  Oh yeah, and we'll be installing our kitchen sink that we got from craigslist!  With any luck, this will be finished when Susan gets back from the retreat next weekend.
