7 months

Where has time gone??? I can't believe it has already been 7 months and our little guy will be here in 3 months! This month we have done a little more prep to get ready for Lincoln. We finally got his room cleaned out and are working on cleaning the carpets this weekend. We have been very fortunate to receive the glider and changing table as gifts. We purchased the crib and dresser this weekend.

I feel great! I have gained more weight than I wanted to, but I have enjoyed myself. :) Plus, I know what works to get it off afterwards. I strive to take a walk each evening. My back has started hurting... some nights. Laying down for a bit has helped. Brad finally felt Lincoln kick and it was a big kick! He has been very active and loves music. I can't wait to meet this little guy!

Baby Love!

The second trimester has been so much fun!
1. I have energy
2. I can feel Lincoln moving around... a lot!
3. I have energy!
4. I look pregnant... not like I am gaining weight.

I can tell this trimester is coming to an end and we are moving into the home stretch. It's getting harder to switch sides at night and get off the couch. My back has started hurting. I'm getting tired faster. But, it's all worth it!

Every time Lincoln kicks, I'll call over Brad and he stops! Brad has yet to feel him kick. This morning, my alarm went off. I hit snooze and Lincoln started kicking me. He did the same thing went it went off the second and third time. I think the sound of my alarm scared him! It was so funny. It's amazing what they can hear from "the outside".

Month 6

I can't believe that I am already 6 months pregnant! I'm not sure if it's because I am carrying a boy or what, but I have been very blessed during this pregnancy. Aside from the continuous sinus issues, I feel great! This month is the first month that I had strangers asking me when I was due. I'm glad I look pregnant and not fat. :) I have felt Lincoln move around a lot more. He has found my bladder, which has been a fun guessing game of whether or not I need to visit the ladies room. This week, I started feeling when he has the hiccups.

We  had a nice, quiet Christmas. We missed our family but it was nice to relax and start getting ready for our little guy! After cleaning out 1 room and 3 closets, we got rid of 13 bags of trash!! It's been hard to purge, I am Dutch after all, but it's worth it. I know that a baby comes with a lot of stuff. I want to make sure we are as ready as we can be.
