Where've I been?

Packing, driving, moving and unpacking. Oh, and cleaning. A lot.

At an amazing and life-changing conference for one week. Having great conversations.

Charlotte, North Carolina for a glorious IKEA run! Love that place.

Mourning the loss of innocent lives and the suffering of the many injured at the Boston Marathon Bombing. Remembering the horror of the VT Massacre as its anniversary was the day after the bombing.

Moving, packing, driving, cleaning. Oh, and unpacking. A lot.

Visiting with family for a nice evening. Thanks for stopping by Carla, Sam, Alex, and Logan!

And eating, sleeping, and reading Ina May Gaskin's Guide to Childbirth! Thanks for the recommendation, Julie, Joi, & Laura!

Babe Update: We're 18 weeks pregnant and Baby B is growing, growing, growing! People are actually telling me I look pregnant now, while insisted I did at eight weeks. Ha! Last week I felt as though a rolling pin was turning inside of me and realized that it must be our sweet babe! How exciting to share this moment with the 5.5 inch baby living inside of me. Feeling this sensations makes the pregnancy that much more real; there's really a person living and growing within me! When I tell Jim that the baby's moving, he comes and places his hand on my stomach to feel. So far he hasn't felt him/her, but one of these days or weeks he will!

Living at the farm has been wonderful so far. We wake up to a beautiful view that changes each day, we gaze at the horses and humorously watch Leif navigate these new relationships. The apartment has two bedrooms, which is a really nice perk! One serves as our bedroom while the other is the nursury/craft room. We do have an extra bed for guests, so feel free to stop by sometime :)
