A Little Update

Whew! its been a busy few weeks at our house!  Where do I start?


We hit 30 weeks yesterday. Wow! How time flies!  Only 10 more weeks and I don't feel prepared AT ALL!  I need a more recent picture but here we are at almost 28 weeks.

Shes growing!  I don't think she ever sleeps.  She is so active during the day especially when I am working.  All her flips and kicks are kinda distracting while I am at work. They have gotten a little painful at times too so I know she is getting stronger.   I have started craving sweets a little more lately which is probably not the best thing, but they sure do taste good!  I have started having a hard time sleeping and getting comfortable at night, which my Dr. tells me is nature's way of preparing me. Chloe does not like to be squished either so if my pants are too tight, I sit too close to the desk or lay the wrong way she lets me know for sure!  We go back for our last ultra sound in a week.  I am pretty excited to get to see her again.  It has been quite a while since we have looked in on her.


We finally settled on a day to be my last day at work.  I will work through the end of October, which is about 2 weeks before the baby is due to arrive.  I have been working really hard trying to get some projects done there.  I have a certain number of things I want to get done so I feel like they are kind of caught up before I go.  I don't know if all the projects will all get done but I am giving it my best shot.  It is bittersweet to be leaving.  They are a great group of people and I have really enjoyed working there.

The Apartment:

Oh where to start with the apartment.... A couple of weeks ago we had record breaking temperatures here in Houston.  The temperatures were 105 or higher for several days and since we are in the middle of a really bad drought right now, there were no clouds or raindrops to cool things off.  Those kind of temps make a pregnant girl go a little nuts.  Saturday morning of the heat wave, our air conditioning decided to stop working.  After a call to our emergency line and a visit from the maintenance man it was decided that they could not repair the unit over the weekend so they gave us a window unit in the mean time.  Poor little thing couldn't keep up with the temps and we were forced to endure a long hot weekend.  Monday finally came and they said that we needed a whole new unit which, thankfully, was installed that day.  Yay!!  I was one happy girl!! 

 Poor Lucy was so hot!

Now I am deep in the process of getting us ready to move.  Our big move is just one week away.  September 16th.  We are moving to a two bedroom apartment in a little city called Texas City.  We are all so excited to be moving out of the big city and a little closer to some family.  We will have to drive further to work but, Clint doesn't mind and I only have to do it for about 5 weeks so I think I can handle it.

 Ahh the joys of moving.

Well I guess, that is about enough for this post.  Don't want it to get too long and I am hungry again so I guess I better find some cereal or something. Yummmm....cereal....
