Lately it's been obnoxiously hot here in Lincoln. Yesterday it got above 100 degrees! Today it's only 8:25am and it's already 81 degrees with the forecast predicting 96 as our high. Not fun for me currently being in my 6 month being pregnant. It just means I have spent almost all of this week in the house in the cool air condition. Thank the Lord for working air condition!
Since last blogging, which I honestly can't believe it's been so long, a lot has happened on the baby front. I started feeling our little one moving at about 16 weeks. Just little flutters and soft thumping. Now though it's ridiculous sometimes how much the baby is moving around. My stomach jumps and moves as the baby wiggles and kicks in there.
Also we found out just a couple of weeks ago if we are having a girl or a boy. (It was really hard not to use gender specific pronouns in that last paragraph!) I went to the ultrasound pretty positive we were having a boy. I didn't know why, but I just had a feeling. But I was wrong! We're having a beautiful little girl. I'm so excited. I've always wanted a baby girl to dress up in cute little clothes and bows or flowers in her hair.
She's already a cutie!
The doctors say our little girl is healthy and doing good. She has Nick's long legs already. So I'm already readying myself for the day when she'll tower over me.
Besides all of that everything has been pretty quiet around our house. Nick's working out on base full-time for the next few months, which leaves him coming home pretty drained every night. It will be nice to have a long weekend together even if it is filled with lots of different obligations.
Praying you have a fun and safe 4th of July!
