22 Weeks

I feel like a broken record, always saying our weeks have been "fast yet wonderful", but it's true. This week was certainly no exception; I flew home for the bridal shower of a good friend and spent the latter part of the week devouring Mexican food and visiting with family. My parents and grandma came down to Houston yesterday to spend some time with Z and me; we've had such a fun weekend!

To our Baby Boy:
It's official, you have a bed! Your Daddy surprised me (and you, of course) with a crib when we got back home yesterday. It's absolutely perfect; I hope you'll love it as much as we do. We're praying you'll sleep really well, and for long periods of time, in it as well. Today was Momma's birthday and it seems you got just as many presents (or more) than I did. Your grandparents already adore you. You are kicking like crazy as I type this and it makes me smile; I know that's your own little way of letting me know you're safe and sound deep in the depths of my belly. We love you so much, little one, and can't wait to meet your sweet self come November.
