When we arrived home today, packages were waiting on our porch. An anxiously awaited book and a sign of warmer weather to come were tucked inside those parcels.

*new goal...a picture a day, to hold a memory for days to come

A Quiet House...

Tonight Kevin and the girls are attending the Richmond Heights Daddy Daughter Dinner and Dance from 6-8. Which means I'm home alone! I didn't want to "waste" these two hours alone at home. Armed with a HUGE salad from the Schnuck's salad bar (I no longer question these crazy vegetable cravings, I'm just going with it), I decided to figure out how to create a collage banner for our blog. I found a great tutorial and I did it! I'm so excited. Still have tons to learn but I'm off to a good start. So, night not wasted. Still have 30 minutes, what shall I do?

We have a date!

August 22nd we'll be welcoming our new little one. Well, probably not August 22nd but somehow having a due date seems so official and tidy and I like the thought that August 22nd IS the date. This afternoon I looked through a few pictures of when I was pregnant with Ellie. I was trying to determine if I was really THIS big THIS early with her. Who knows, the pictures don't really tell but I loved this one. It so captures how I feel during these early weeks. Sort of trapped on the couch. Soooo wanting to feel like myself and go have fun. AHHHH, just a couple more weeks, week 14 has been my "back to normal" week in the past so I'll be there soon. Until then I'll take comfort in the fact that my body is doing what it needs to do for this little one!

On vacation in Colorado--slept most of the trip!

Look at her!!! I cannot believe she was so little, just 21 months!
