back to school, back to school

Lets talk about Miss Wiggles. This is by far the coolest feeling of my entire life. We are still in the flutter stage, so right now it just feels like something is rustling around under a blanket. I can't feel any defined kicks or rolls yet, but we know from the ultrasound that she is definitely practicing her gymnastics. Not to get too anatomy lesson on you, but the reason we can't feel a lot of movement yet is because her placenta is attached to the abdomen side of my uterus and she is behind it. So basically she has to get big enough to kick through the placenta for me to feel it. Brian is patiently waiting for another growth spurt so he can feel her too!

This week has been a little crazy as my brother Jonny ended up in the emergency room at college for an emergency appendectomy. He is recovering well, but I feel bad for the poor guy. This was following up on my sister having swine flu last week and my mom having pneumonia. What a mess!

And on Thursday, I am finally back to work! I am looking forward to having a little more activity and stimulation in my day. And getting to talk to real people! Yay! So lots of prayers please for me and my little mango that we stay safe and are able to ease back into our busy schedule.

Holidays are enticing only for the first week or so.
After that, it is no longer such a novelty
to rise late and have little to do.

I do pray that your transition back to work goes smoothly and that your little babe stays safe and happy inside your warm belly while you work in Jesus name! I pray that your family gets well and that sickness is done with your family too! What a crazy season for us all huh.
