Flora Beth sent me and mom the best video. It is from WBTV’s good news. It reminds me so much of my Grandmama and her sisters. I have been quite cry-y about her especially lately, but it was just the best few minutes spent to feel like I got to visit with the likes of her.

i had my doctor’s appointment this morning. i am 21 weeks and 3 days along. everything is going well. i have now officially gained 6 pounds on top of my starting pregnancy weight. big jump for this appointment! too much halloween candy???? the baby’s heartbeat was good and strong…152 at this appointment. that was really it for today’s visit.
i can feel the baby moving a good bit these days. mostly when i am sitting down. still it’s hard to realize that’s what it really is. it doesn’t feel like kicks but more like something swimming around inside…a little fish that bumps into me. and sometimes like bubbles popping against me, depending on where i feel it. i love it! mark can’t feel yet, but i can’t wait until he’ll be able to.
i am at work. not working, but just waiting for the students to get here so i can lock up and leave. and i have spent the last little while looking at my flickr account since i couldn’t entertain myself with much else. and i have realized how much i am missing my real journaling…just blogging is not satisfying that outlet of getting ALL my thoughts out & down, and in a creative way with stamps and paint and wonderful messiness. i must start back. i must go back and catch up. i usually don’t like the results when i am doing it…oh, but looking back makes them worth it. no more excuses…back to the real books too.
i started this last year when my kids at school were working on a related text project. i still have a few letters to go, but i’m planning on using it in the nursery. i looked up x animals and the only one was some xeno-something. it’s a scary looking frog that lives on another continent and is not at all kid friendly. i’m thinking i’ll just do an x-ray of a bear.
