Just a quick note to say that I’m laughing over how my pregnancy ticker at the bottom of the blog currently reads, “51 weeks and 1 day pregnant.” Oh, how thankful I am that it is not so!
The belly’s getting bigger… which means the baby is, too!

Outside my window… a surprisingly sunny day!
I am thinking… of how best to enjoy it
I am thankful for… this little wiggly being inside of me
From the kitchen… lots of peanut butter (Smucker’s Natural, my favorite)
I am wearing… maternity clothes my MIL wore when pregnant with my hubby!
I am creating… catch-up blog posts so I won’t feel “already behind” when baby’s born
I am going… to see my good friend Kathleen in just over a week!
I am reading… The Nursing Mother’s Companion (and re-reading most of my other parenting-related books)
I am hoping… for a healthy baby Hope :-)
I am hearing… nothing. Very quiet in here. I’m sure that won’t last long!
Around the house… lots of laundry to wash and last items to get together for baby!
One of my favorite things… baby leggings. they’re so adorable, I’m addicted to knitting them!
A few plans for the rest of the week: laundry, knitting, reading, emailing people
Here is picture for thought I am sharing…

Baby’s a she! We found out at our December 26th ultrasound. Yes, it’s been that long since I’ve kept up with blogging!
In China, technicians and doctors aren’t allowed to tell patients the gender of the baby, because in most areas (not ours, actually), parents are only allowed to have one child and many prefer boys. To prevent gender-selective abortions, parents don’t find out until baby is born. The only ultrasound images we were given were of baby’s face, another step to prevent black-market gender interpretation!
This month, baby became VERY active in her movements… I could easily count 10 movements in 2 minutes when lying down. Baby also got the hiccups a LOT! Also this month, we had one last ultrasound in China and found out baby’s gender… she’s a she! (And it only took us 45 minutes of convincing to get the technicians to tell us!) We said our farewells to friends and our home, and boarded flights that eventually got us back to the U.S. On the longest of these (13 hours), we were upgraded to first class! I had no idea how nice it is up there, and was so thankful, but fully expect that to never happen again (babies and kids aren’t generally selected for free upgrades the way pregnant ladies apparently are!).
I am definitely, without-a-doubt, showing, no matter what I’m wearing, how I’m standing/sitting, etc.. It’s kind of fun!
