A Simple Lil’ Update.

Life has been pretty hectic lately, it seems.

We flew to New Mexico for my grandmother’s funeral last week.  It was a wonderful time of celebrating what an incredible woman she was.  Our big, huge, crazy family was together a lot and it was so much fun to hear everyone’s favorite Maw Maw stories.  I will forever miss my chats with her, but am so grateful to know she’s in heaven.

In other news, I’m in the LAST week of my first trimester!!!!!  WAHOO!  I can’t believe I’m already 12+ weeks pregnant.

Thankfully, I’ve experienced NO morning sickness whatsoever.  Praise the Lord.  I’m so thankful to not have any of that ick.  Really, the only symptoms I’m having are that I’m horribly exhausted in the afternoons and that I look like a sausage as I try to stuff myself into my normal clothes.

It’s all good, though.  I’ve never been so happy to be chubby.

We went in for my 12 week appointment this morning and had my4th ultrasound.  I get so nervous before them each time, but always love it when that little beating heart shows up on the monitor.

The little peanut was flopping around like a fish out of water today and it was absolutely amazing to watch.  So incredibly blessed that it’s growing and thriving in there.

Last, but certainly not least, my other little peanut isn’t quite so little anymore.  Arle is a ball of energy that I can hardly keep up with these days.  Oh how I love my time with this sweet little big girl.
