It's hot.

Very shortly after I learned I was pregnant I looked at the Farmer's Almanac to see what the summer was going to be like.  It told me that it wasn't supposed to be as hot as it was last summer, which was a lot of consolation at the time, but now that it's hot outside it's just not enough.

And I'm not even that pregnant yet.  Currently 16 weeks.  All is going well on that front.  Some ligament spasms, but those are easy to ignore now that I can feel the runt wiggling around from time to time.  We won't know the gender until July.

My first trimester I was going to bed around 7:30, very shortly after we got Baby down for the night.  I"m able to stay up for a little longer, but not by much.

Baby has been bringing me such wonderful treasures.  Lately it's been dead leaves, weeds and sprigs of grass to put in water and display with many oohs and aahhs.

We're loving the little plastic wading pool in the back yard and officially broke it in this past weekend.  Lots of footprints to be had this summer, so long as it's not too crazy hot outside.

I am very happy for you. I wish you a lot of luck. And I think Baby and Runt are wonderful kids names -- wish I'd thought of them before naming OUR daughter.

Well, good on you. Does baby know yet she's getting a little brother or sister? It's going to be a fun time.

I need to make you some little vases for weeds and such!
