Newspaper Girl

We recently began receiving the Sunday paper by delivery.  How nice it is to walk outside with a cup of coffee and settle in for short, quiet morning before the house awakes.  Of course, that's usually my time to get started on the grocery list and coupon matchups for the week. Gotta pay for that paper, right??

Another member of the family enjoys the Sunday paper, especially the crossword section and comics.

Last Few Beach Days

We are trying to sneak off to the beach as much as possible before the cold weather sets in...

It's so hard to let the warmth of summer go.  We look forward to the crispness of fall and the holidays that are fast approaching. This year we wait anxiously for the impending arrival of a new little one.

Well, Hello, Third Trimester

Oh yes, this week marks the entrance of the third trimester.  Twenty-six weeks, 14 or so to go..  You all realize this means that Christmas is just a mere three months away, right?  (GASP!)  I know, that's about what I think, too.

The little bugger is approximately 14 inches long and the size of an eggplant.  In fact, looking at my baby ticker - we're under the 100 day mark!

 BabyFruit Ticker

I'd love to actually put this on the side bar, but for the life of me can't figure it out.  Maybe one of my knowledgeable friends can help a gal out?? :-)

Feeling pretty good.  Still sleeping well, not quite yet waddling, and have enough energy to survive on one cup of coffee.  Baby P is kicking like mad, reminding me when I've sat too long.  Room is painted, crib is assembled, yard sale finds have been washed and ready to be organized into bins.  Abby has been excited and kisses my belly often.  She even found a small toy guitar at a yard sale and asked to "buy if for her little brother".   We enter the third trimester with gumption to see it through the finish line.

Check out these promised belly pictures....I added a little comparison with Abby.  About the same, eh?
