27 weeks

I know I've been bad about updating the blog, and even worse at posting belly pictures. We took some a few weeks back, but it wasn't blog worthy. I feel like my belly is a lot bigger in real life then on camera.

So far my pregnancy has been great. As my body keeps changing it just makes me appreciate women more, and all the things that we endure to have children. The hardest part of pregnancy for me is not being able to do all the things that I'm used to doing...running with Blake and Lucy, lifting heavy items without help, yard work (mowing the lawn), and getting a solid 8 hours of sleep. Oh, and anyone who had bad leg cramps during pregnancy, I feel your pain and NO ONE and I mean NO ONE should ever have to endure that kind of uncomfortable feeling.

Happy Birthday Lucy

I know, I know she's only a dog, but a very special one to me. She turned "1" a few weeks ago, and got to go camping with the boy scouts for her birthday weekend. We got Lucy when she was 3 months old, and it has gone by so fast. It's hard to remember the simple life we had before her. No one else to think about or take care of besides ourselves. She does shed hair on our clothes, smell sometimes, require a lot of attention and physical activity, and does ruin some of our things, but I wouldn't trade her for anything. Lucy has taught me to be more easy going in the cleanliness of our home, patience, and the ability to care for someone else besides myself and Blake. She also filled such a huge hole that I had in my life from the difficulty of getting pregnant. To me she isn't just a dog, she's a part of my family.
