I'm officially 7 months (32 weeks) pregnant as of Sunday, January 27th. The little one has moved and so has it's movements - it's kicking more of my organs lately, it seems. That's alright, it's still enjoyable being pregnant, although I'm getting anxious to meet this little one. We're hoping to have the baby 2 weeks early so we have Steve's spring break to enjoy all the new changes together. Of course we realize we have no control over when baby will come, and so we trust the good Lord that when baby is "done cooking", it'll come - God's timing is always so perfect.

I'm enjoying keeping up on exercising. I praise the Lord often for our treadmill. I walk 15 minutes/day on it. It feels great. I'm trying to eat healthy and doing fairly well, although having bags of candy lying around (no longer useable for our candy business) isn't always conducive to healthy eating :).

Lately we've been doing some re-thinking in regards to diapers. I really wanted to give cloth diapers a try (reason: to save money), but I'm losing some resolve. We live in an apartment where we have to pay for laundering facilities, so that's a major drawback. We also have free garbage disposal, so that's no additional cost for using disposables. But alas, we will see. I've been blessed with some gifts of cloth diapers from friends and so we have enough to give it a try. Who knows, maybe I'll really enjoy it, and perhaps the laundering cost won't be too much comparatively speaking. We are, however, planning on taking my cousin's advice - to use disposable diapers during the first month or so.

My mom's planning on coming out to visit us from March 15th through April 15th to help with all the baby stuff. Thanks mom! I'm looking forward to her visit.

Steve's parents are coming for a visit during the week of March 23rd (my due date). Hopefully we'll have a baby for them to hold before they have to head home, but again, the baby will come when good and ready. We're looking forward to seeing Dad & Mom Carr. Hopefully the weather cooperates for our parents' travels.
