99 days til D-Day!

Only 99 days to go! I have so much to do and so little time. Actually, I wish I was closer to the end because my back is killing me and it will probably only get worse. I have been very tired the last few days - work is a little more intense lately and we have a lot going on. Rudy is working his butt off and so he is tired too. Thank goodness we are leaving for vacation this Saturday!! I can't wait!

The kick and rub game

Me and my baby are communicating!! He recently started sticking out a limb of some sort that I can feel on the outside. It looks like a lump is coming out of my belly or something. Anyway, last night, he was sticking something out and so I started rubbing it and talking to him. Then I stopped rubbing. And he kicked me. So, I started rubbing again. Then stopped. Then he kicked me again! Like, "mooooommmmm! don't stop rubbing me!!" It just warmed the cockles of my heart - we are communicating! I am so excited! This went on for a while and was so much fun. I can feel him kicking me now all over - it's hard to tell what's what of course, but I just love when I can feel some little part of him against my skin. He is going to be spoiled with massages by the time he comes out! This is the fun part of being pregnant and I am enjoying it!!!

The baby's dresser!

The baby's dresser arrived today! It is so awesome, this picture doesn't do it justice. It matches the crib just perfectly. The top and sides are white and the drawers are mocha stained maple. It's really nice from Room and Board. I love Room and Board! We also got a changing tray that matches to go on top - it takes up about 2/3 of the top of the dresser leaving just enough room for a lamp or a place to put all the diaper changing supplies. Oooooohhh, I can't wait to get the room all together and show you!

22 weeks, 4 days belly pic

Wow, what a difference a few weeks makes! I am starting to look kind of fat in the face too. Finally, my belly has a nice roundness to it. It is much more fun to actually look pregnant, I must say!
