pretty soon David will have to shave off his beard for a business trip and we're both dreading it. i've always loved his facial hair. it's been a while since he has had to shave for work and so his beard has gotten pretty epic. he really takes care of that thing. oh well, it'll grow back.
as for me i feel like i'm having a bit of a belly growth spurt. i am currently about 17 weeks along. apparently the baby is supposed to double it's size in the next couple weeks, so i'm preparing for it the only way i know how: lots of moisturizing. since my last post my nausea has pretty much completely gone away (hallelujah), but it seems like i'm getting more hungry more often. so i've upped the ante on my exercise routine to help compensate for the inevitable weight gain.
next week we will hopefully find out the sex of the baby, although we are planning on not publicly announcing it for a while. of course, we are pretty anxious to finally know. and in two weeks we will be taking a little family vacation to Coronado Island. i am looking forward to laying out and reading and doing absolutely nothing. then later in the month we'll be visiting Chicago and Kansas for David's business trip. August is going to be a busy month.
in the meantime i've been trying to get some things done around the house here and there to begin preparations for this little one's arrival. we're getting some work done in our back and front yards and some major downsizing will need to happen in order to clear out some space for our growing family. i'm not naturally very great at organization so this is proving to be a bit of a challenge for me, but i'll get it together eventually. i have to (ha!)
