It’s so hard to believe that we’re so close to meeting this little girl, and 30 weeks of pregnancy are already behind me. Truthfully, I don’t usually have too hard of a time with pregnancy. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to not get really sick, and my weight gain and blood pressure have been right on target.

    Lately 

    I’m kind of in disbelief that it’s already Wednesday. Where has my week gone? It’s been a busy one for me at work this week since I wasn’t in on Thursday or Friday, and I still feel so behind. Here’s what we’ve been up to… While Abbie adjusted to DST just find with the adjustments we made to her bedtime, Chris and I have been having a harder time in the mornings. I love that I get to drive home while it’s still light out, but getting up in the dark is hard. I’ve needed a lot more coffee than…
