For comparison.....this photo was baby belly at 16 weeks.
The next photo was taken this morning.....a little over 20 weeks along.
I had an ultrasound on Wednesday. Even though I have had a few ultrasounds over the last four years, it still amazes me how cool it is to see your little one moving around in there. And the details...waving fingers...beating heart...rolling over...breathtaking.
The little one was waving away.
And another of our little guy's beautiful profile.
Pregnancy is going well. I'm feeling pretty good and have a whole lot more energy than 6 weeks ago. Cori has no idea what is going on, but Charlie is all excited about the new baby.
*I had my 20 week ultrasound (oh my, how time flies) and everything is looking fine
*One of our little kitties died (freak accident...he got tangled in some string he was playing with and strangled himself)
*We transplanted 23 pine trees from our yard to the top of the berm that runs along the front of our property (when I say we...I mean we hired someone)
*We planted more fruit trees...one peach and two plum
*Garden is going crazy...I picked our first melons this week, lots of tomatoes, peppers, cukes, zucchini and sweet corn
*32 pints of peaches canned, 23 pints of mild salsa canned, 8 pints of beets canned, 5 pies made and froze, 13 quarts of carrots froze, 40 cups of shredded zucchini froze, countless quarts and pints of pickles canned, 4 pints of apricot jam canned
*I love my new food processor and have no idea how I went so long without one
*My children amaze me everyday...growing like crazy, running around like mad...full of funny sayings and big open-mouthed kisses
*Work-wise/business is slow right now and on top of that I have a crazy customer arguing about a bill for work we did
Cori has picked up her mama's love of tomatoes.
She eats a whole one right from the garden whenever she gets the chance.
This is pretty much what my kitchen has looked like for weeks. I have a love/hate relationship with my garden. It seems so time consuming this time of year, but is so worth it come December.
And with the baby due in December, we know I will need all the help I can get.
What was I thinking? 65 pounds of peaches was probably not necessary.
I'm a week late, but Happy Birthday to my baby girl, Cori! I can not believe how fast this last year has went. It seems like just yesterday you with so tiny and snuggly and now there is no getting you to sit still.
