24 weeks!

My goodness, am I really that far along now??? Do we really only have 16 more weeks to prepare for a life changing event?? Geez. We have a lot to do.

Fun facts:
I am officially in my 6th month of pregnancy. I still can't quite fit into maternity shirts. I hate chicken now (unless it's fried). All I want is steak and fish. I am officially halfway finished with my MBA!

Another fun fact: From the moment I found out I was pregnant, all I could think about was how life was going to change. For some reason, one of the things I was incredibly focused on was how I was going to go fishing for long periods of time if I was still breastfeeding. I know it is a ridiculous thing to focus on especially since I haven't been fishing in like 3 years. There are more important things to focus on (like, how are we actually going to raise a human?). But I found myself totally fixated on this. And how vacations with my husband were going to forever change. So what did we do about this?? First, I scheduled a babymoon with my darling hubby for July to Destin for a long weekend.

Second, my Dad took me fishing last weekend. We had a couple of days of all day fishing and it was awesome. The only downside to fishing while 6 months pregnant standing a lot in the sun, heat and humidity is the size my feet and ankles decided to swell to. Grade 2 pitting edema...not fun...but worth it for plenty of trout. Exactly how much water was retained? Well, last night I got home I weighed myself (and then pouted a little). This morning (after getting up 4 times in the middle of the night) I was 5 pounds lighter.

Anyhow, here's the bean (with swollen mom) at 24 weeks.

    You look adorable preggo! So excited for y'all! The babymoon is such a cute idea, and I bet you really appreciate it when it's time . Those slings are awesome, by the way, from newborn to toddler. Aww I miss the days when my little babies weren't taller than me! Haha! Best wishes, you two.

  4. ugh...I'm going to be in Destin July 23-30th. Will I be able to crash your babymoon? Like short-sheet the bed, sprinkle glitter everywhere, put baby oil on the door handles? Oh...I'm excited now.

  5. Thanks everyone! Especially thanks to Grandma! I didn't even know you knew where to find the internet much less comment on a blog!! You are learning some awesome skills from those kids!

    @val- I'll be in the week before that shorting your sheets and hiding candy and sugar all over the place for your kids to find.
