i feel like the days are rushing by at an increasing rate. i want to stop and listen. pause. feel the happiness of each & every day as it comes.
there are so many things i want to remember about this past week, the last week of january.
our niece joviah made us a collage of pictures of babies. its so cute and now hangs on our fridge!
there is a little car seat sitting in our living room. its waiting to be washed & loved & then it'll be ready to have a baby put in it. when we went out to buy it and put it into our backseat, we both kept looking back at it in disbelief. a car seat! in our backseat!
i got my hair cut! so refreshing.
eating maple walnut ice cream right out of the box is one of lifes greatest pleasures.
the nesting continues. i finally went through the boxes of stuff my mom delivered to my house; boxes full of books & papers & pictures & little doo-dads from the past 15 years of my life. brian & i were ruthless yesterday; i've purged our second room of everything useless. and i'm so glad. its all gone, and the room is starting to look a little more liveable.
plus! i found a small piece of granite from the regina temple; from the temple in our home town, from the temple i took care of as a summer job, from the temple we were sealed in. its nice to have in our home.
i got to go to a prenatal yoga class on tuesday night. it was just what i needed. i felt grounded & relaxed when i left. baby moved around happily while i did the same. it was so nice.
i washed this adorable little sleeper this week. it may not fit for awhile, but i'm excited to put baby in it.
i got a letter in the mail that began with these words: "congratulations! your student loans are paid in full." ah. sweet freedom.
we're really enjoying our canned peaches from the summer. thanks to my brother & his wife for pointing out the most delicious ones in salmon arm, and to my mama-in-law for helping me can them. we really, really love them.
listening to lots & lots of ben howard and brett dennen.
i'm pretty sure baby doubled in size this week.
...its getting really hard to see my toes over this bump!
while i was putting this post together, i ate a grapefruit. in my bed. life is good.
