Took a walk with the boys today in the rain :) Got them all decked out in their rain suits and boots, walked to the pond in our neighborhood and saw fish and frogs. When we got home, they played in the backyard in the water table, throwing water and watering their dinosaurs (ah boys)...a good rainy day!

Frank and I found out we were expecting in May - we are both very excited! Almost at 6 months and still can't believe how time has flown. I am substitute teaching this year, so I can have the flexibility to be home with the baby when s/he is born.
First three months were miserable, but they're done now, so I'm trying to block them from my memory :) Starting in July, I actually felt like a human being again and have been steadily working to get the baby's room ready and the house in order (since I probably won't have time to do that for a while). We had our 20 week ultrasound (we did not find out the gender) and baby is looking big and healthy. We're due on January 11, though I'm pretty open to anytime in early-mid January (I was a late baby, so I wouldn't be surprised if this one is too).
I have started to feel kicks, which is awesome, and Frank and I both enjoy reading to our little Baby at night.
Again, I'll get some pictures up later today of me (since I've gotten requests) and Baby (since that's just cool), and hope that I'll be able to update again soon.

So, once again I'm going to make a blogging attempt...this time on my tablet! I got it several months back and it has been amazing at keeping me on task (while simultaneously providing yet another opportunity for distraction...oh well). This is my test post to see if it will actually work, and I'm hoping this method might let me be more consistent at posting.
The picture I attached is my latest seedling attempt. Last year's seeds were a mediocre success, but I'm blaming our unusually hot and dry summer on most of it. This year, my parents bought me a cold frame (like a small greenhouse) for my birthday, and that's where these little puppies are going to sit to see if I can give them a bit of a head start...and keep my window sill clean :-) let's hope yesterday's snow is really the end of winter!
