Week 23

23 weeks and the size if a mango, about one whole pound this week! Grow baby, grow! :)

Feeling him kicking around and I love it, Brian even felt him tap a little on my belly last Friday for the first time! 

Every once and a while it takes my breath away how blessed we are.  Literally sometimes it makes me stop what I am doing out of disbelief. I am so thankful for my husband, our growing family, our dog, our house, our jobs... Counting my blessing and saying many, many prayers of thanks. 

Here's a pic of Brian out for a quick hunt, dale looking on as he walks out the back. Love these two :)

Week 22

22 weeks and the size of a spaghetti squash! Very exciting week because we started to get our little guy's nursery together!

We had a busy weekend.  We went to the duck game on Saturday,

On Sunday Brian took Dale duck hunting for the first time and then we picked up our baby furniture!

 Here is Brian getting it secure in his truck:

Then the Buersmeyers came over to help carry it upstairs and put it together.  We have fabulous friends :) 

Here is our progress so far!

Lesson in patience...

Life is teaching me patience this week. A lesson I can never learn too many times. 

Sometimes it's hard to stay present when my mind is always occupied with waiting. It feels like an empty occupation, but my heart has turned toward prayer more often, which is never a bad thing to come to. 

Patience is a virtue. But my it is a hard one.

Also got some great deals this week on a crib, dresser, mattress, and bouncer for this little baby. So excited to start getting ready for his arrival :)
