New Photos

Thought you all might like to see how big I'm getting. Sorry the photo is so blurry.

Kick, Kick, Kick

Well, last night I noticed my tummy move when Ben kicks hard now. It's so funny. I also noticed him up and moving around about 3:45am. I don't think he woke me up though. I woke up to turn over and noticed him all over the place. He has also been all over the place today. He was really active this morning and a little more subdued this afternoon. The opposite of what he has been doing before. He's just all over the place. :)

Time Flies

So today I started talking about the baby shower that I will have back in Fairfield in April. April seems so far away, but we're already planning. I'll probably sit down tonight and start a list of people to invite. We (Drew and I) haven't even started registering yet for the baby showers we're going to have here. We need to get busy. I'm not really even sure what to register for. We have most of the big stuff that we need, so what little stuff does that leave? Clothes, diapers, some toys, and some baby care items. Can I really find enough to register for and not have an overwhelming amount of stuff that he will only be able to wear for a month or two?

I'm about 5 and half months along and at times I think I can't wait until he gets here. Then there are times that I think, I want to still be pregnant for awhile. It's a really special feeling to have him moving around inside me. I guess I just better enjoy the time that I have.

Last Friday I had a doctor's appointment. She seemed pleased that I was gaining weight. I think I gained 5 pounds in the last month. That puts me at about 15 pounds so far. That's right on track with where I should be, from what I'm told. Evidently the 15 pounds I've put on so far isn't all baby because I have had 2 people this week comment that I didn't look that far along. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. :)

I must go for now. I'm getting a little hungry. Time for my after school feeding.

My first official blog

I have been resisting entering the world of the newest technological advances, but today I give in. I now have my own blog. I have posted blogs on myspace, but this is an actual seperate space dedicated to whatever I think worthy enough to type here. What may have caused this change in attitude you may ask. That's an easy answer. Benjamin Joseph Ward. While I can send pictures to friends and relatives that are not close by and I can send out mass emails with information about the pregnancy and later on about him growing and discovering things, this seems so much more convenient. All the information, pictures, etc. are stored in one place. So any time someone wants to reference an old story or picture, it will all be here.

Now on to the purpose of the blog. I am amazed that within the span of a week or less, I went from noticing him kick once or twice a day to noticing him kick and move around all the time. He sure is an active little guy and he really seems to like sitting on my bladder at about 2:30 every day, just when I'm getting done with teaching my classes.

Not much to say today, but I have already spent too much time playing around on here and iGoogle. Beware technology is addictive.
