not quite spring

while the flowers are finally blooming in some spots, the weather here’s been wintery – snow and frost many mornings. As this is only our second spring here it’s hard to make generalizations about the weather but everyone else we’ve talked to has confirmed that this winter is lasting longer than normal.

We had Don and Pat (C’s uncle and aunt) visiting last week which was great. We got a chance to play hosts in our house, and it was nice to repay the hospitality they’ve shown us when we’ve visited them. Plus they’re easy guests; enthusiastic, helpful, and full of good conversation. It makes us feel a bit more connected to talk with family about family and to get those hugs we seldom get.

Pregnancy-wise: we might actually be getting good at this! Today’s the last day of my second trimester and I’m feeling better than I have since the end of October. Aside from all the weight I’m lugging around, I feel great and the constant kicks from the wee one are absolutely lovely.

    We’re getting the spring weather (it was over 20 yesterday, supposed to hit 19 today); but no flowers yet. Rhubarb is starting to peek through though.

    Would be awesome if you catch the outline of the foot through your skin on camera. Probably too tricky, though.

    not unless they connect with my bladder! Then it’s a bit uncomfortable. Right now the head’s pointing down though and I had could even see and feel a foot coming out my side yesterday.
