Post Valentines

Belated Valentine's Day to all you out there! I woke up Valentine's morning to my husband rustling in the stairway outside our bedroom. When I finally dragged myself out of bed, there was a single rose in a vase in our doorway, framed by candies in a heart shape along with a sweet note. Next he led me to the soon-to-be baby's room, where there was another rose, heart of candies and a note about how excited he was to transform that room into our baby's nursery. The pattern continued, on through the bathroom, kitchen, living room and piano room, totaling 6 dozen, and each being accompanied by a unique note about something pertaining to that room. (Thanking me for doing laundry/dishes...looking forward to potty training our little one....grateful for my musical skills, etc. etc.) It was so sweet and a great way to start out our Valentine's Day together. :)

Here's a sample of one of my flowers... :)

The rest of the day was spent with a later-morning brunch at Perkins -- which was packed. I should have expected that, I guess I just didn't think that Perkins, of all places, would be packed. But it was. It was enjoyable though...aside from the fact that nothing sounded good to me....gotta love being pregnant. :) We then enjoyed a movie and went on to spend time with our Bible Quiz Team.

And's the first of my pregnancy-progress pictures....I look a little "blah" because it was the end of a long day, and I was feeling quite nauseous....:)

"Lil' Smudge", as we like to call him/her hasn't made much of an appearance in my belly size yet...but I definitely feel the affects of him/her growing! :)
