November 1

My due date is 4 months from today!! Monday will mark the 23 week mark in this pregnancy! It is good to finally be looking pregnant. Until about 2 weeks ago, I just looked a little chubbier than normal...I described it as my "pooch getting poochier." But now, the belly is rounding and I'm looking as pregnant as I feel!
I can not even describe how much I LOVE feeling every little movement the baby is making! It is still just magical to me. I woke up at 4:00 am this morning and she was kicking all over my left side. I have never felt her on my left side, it was like she discovered a whole new territory early early this morning. I was sleepy but it made me smile just laying there feeling her kick and roll!
I've had a great few days off, although I've spent a lot of time in the car. Halloween was a non-event for us. We weren't even home to greet the trick-or-treaters because we went to Crowley's Ridge to scout some teams. I did dress Henry up in his King costume and took a picture before we left!

The drive to North East Arkansas is SOOO boring, but we were a little shocked by all the flooding we saw. My heart goes out to all those farmers and land owners whose fields now look like lakes. We actually had to drive through water that was covering the road twice. As thankful as I was all weekend for beautiful sunshine, I know these people are even more thankful for a break from rain.

I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend. Have a great Monday!!
