Since we're on Christmas vacation, you'd think we were doing a lot of relaxing, WRONG! We've kept pretty busy so far this long weekend. We received some money from 2 sets of grandparents so we went out and got paint for the little ladies' bedroom! We decided on pale pink and brown. The brown was there before but the previous blue has now changed to pink. We originally refused the idea of pink but after not being able to decide on a shade of purple, pink it is!
I'm deuce deuce, 22 weeks! Only 4 more months to go! I am AMAZED at how easy pregnancy has been so far, what a blessing! Lately, I have noticed a few aches that I didn't notice before, but nothing serious. Lower back pain if I walk for long periods of time, things like that. Otherwise, all is well! I wasn't expecting to feel much since the doctor said the placenta is positioned in the front, but I feel little tosses and turns all the time! What a wonderful feeling to experience! I can't wait to be a mom!

GIRL! I went to my 5th month dr. appointment last Thursday and we found out we're having a little Dena! I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to post, all the scanned copies are at work. I'll try my best to put one up soon. She is so amazingly cute already! There is one picture of her profile that has so much personality already! A little tiny nose, lips and chin! I was immediately in tears, just becoming more aware of how truly MIRACULOUS God is! I can't believe I love this little girl so much already and I haven't even seen her! I'm going to be a mess when she finally comes out! She's 10 ounces, what a peanut! The Dr. measured me, I thought he was going to say my belly was too small but he said it matches exactly where I should be. I was 20 weeks this last Saturday so we're halfway through!
Steve and I are doing well too! We're planning on sticking around here for Christmas. It's still up in there air if some of Steve's family will come, but we are ok with not going anywhere. We just want to stay warm and cozy by the fire and enjoy our Christmas together. Cozy by the fire?! It was 80 today! CRAZY, but AWESOME!
