Happy Hump Day, blerg. Here’s a little leftover picture of Josh paddleboarding from two weekends ago, because it’s pretty.
I am 19 weeks and 4 days pregnant today. This Friday I get to have my 20 week ultrasound, which is traditionally the “gender reveal” ultrasound. Of course, we already know the gender!
I’m excited to see the little dude again. Especially since I don’t feel him yet, which apparently is normal for first-time moms. 20-22 weeks is the average to start feeling kicks.
Last Friday it was too hot for the dog park, so I took the girls to the river instead. It was kind of gross–all fish-smelling and murky and trashy. They didn’t seem to mind.
Saturday we spent most of the day cleaning the house–my cousin Erika is coming for a visit this weekend and we haven’t had the maid in two months. Gasp! I know! I asked her to come this week, but she was taking a vacation. Sniff.
Zucchini bread with crushed glazed walnut topping, mmmmm. Unfortunately I was all out of white flour so I used whole-wheat flour instead, and I didn’t like the bread as much. Too healthy!
On Saturday after the house cleaning we went to the beach to play.
We had some extremely melty ice cream cones as well.
Boy do I look pregnant. It’s especially apparent after I eat ANYthing, and blow up like a balloon.
Currently I’m wasting time before my doctor’s appointment at 10. 10 is a weird time–too early for me to go to work first, but a little too late as well.
So my stinkin’ husband and his stinkin’ little friend decided to hike MY BUCKET LIST lake on Sunday without me, Lake Blanca. Just because I’m pregnant and weak, dammit! Oh well. He said it was really hard but he would do it again. Damn right you’ll do it again, buddy. With wife and child!
Of course an arduous 12-mile hike sounds awful NOW, but maybe someday it will sound appealing again. Like when I’m not gestating a human, and panting when I walk up a small flight of stairs.
Someone gave us a cherry tomato plant for our garden, and it’s flourishing! Too bad I don’t like cherry tomatoes, ha haaaaaaaa.
Josh alleviating his hip pain. He was not super stoked I posted this on Instagram, I wonder why?
Yesterday I stopped by World Market to get a new bath mat and also impulse purchased these delicious Australian cookies I’d heard so much about. Very tasty!
I also got a fresh shellac. I wish I had asked for three coats of glitter. Heigh ho!
Yes we ARE enjoying this last little bit of summer weather, and you?
