Officially half way there

Hello All. The title of this post refers to the fact that I'm officially at the half way point of this pregnancy; I'm 20 weeks in with 20 weeks to go! The baby moves a lot now and it's comforting to feel her doing her thing. We're hard at work on a name and we have it narrowed down to 3 choices at this moment. We have one we're leaning towards, but not quite ready to make an announcement. It will be soon though. I want to call her by name and not by "baby" or "it." Yesterday we had Gymboree and it was fun. Lot's of moms in my class have just had their second babies and they bring their older child (Maddie's age) to play and they have the new baby strapped to the front of them in the baby Bjorn. With Maddie, I didn't get much use out of my Bjorn, but to keep my hands free, I have a feeling I'll be using it a lot more this time around. Which is good, because they are expensive and should be used. Today we have errands to do, the cleaning lady is coming, we may go to Open Gym at Gymboree, and then I have class tonight. Only 2 classes left including this one; Yeah! It's actually been a pretty fun class to take and after it's over I still have one more to do to renew my teaching license. I have to teach a lesson tonight that I would teach to 4th graders if I was still teaching and the lesson is on pregnancy and birth. Appropriate? I think so. I was given this assignment by my teacher well before I was showing-just a coincidence. So, busy day and then tomorrow is Gabe's big 30th birthday!! I'm excited for him. I have a big plan for him that he doesn't know about, so I can't post it yet. We'll be eating dinner with his family tomorrow night, but then celebrating just the two of us on Saturday. Once, he knows, I'll post what we're doing. It will be an "adventure." That's what's going on here. Lots and lots of stuff as many of you know. We're doing well though :)

Congrats on reaching the halfway point.:) It really does seem to have gone by really quickly. I'm sure you're glad about that. Hope all of your planning is going well and we look forward to seeing you both on Friday. xxx Siobhan and Aibha
